"Get Down" is the third and final single released from Nas' 2002 album God's Son. It features descriptive storytelling by Nas and funk-based production by Nas and Salaam Remi. In addition to elements of Funky Drummer, the track samples "The Boss" by James Brown which was previously made famous by the West Coast rapper Ice-T on his 1990 single "You Played Yourself"; the same sample was used in Poor Righteous Teachers' song "Word from the Wise" and Lord Finesse's "Bad Mutha". It was not as popular as Nas' previous two singles from God's Son, but still reached #76 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart.

    Revolvers & Lever-guns in the Golden State?

    So, we're making plans to visit a friend in northern California in the coming weeks. She lives in a fairly remote, picturesque rural area, and not one of the decaying urban sprawls. Naturally, I would want to have a firearm or two on the trips. I know CCW is a no-go, almost anything NFA (sans...

    Cartridge you wish you got into much earlier?

    The .44 Magnum has inspired this thought. I got into said earlier in the year and wondered why I had not earlier. I can, and have, run everything from delightfully light .44 Specials to hot loaded, wrist-cracking heavy .44 Magnum loads. I've found the factory-loaded 240-grain loads seem like...
