Exciting news from Detroit band Will Sessions as they are reported to release TWO new 45's covering four of Nas' most classic songs from his debut Illmatic album. At this stage news is sparse, but we assume the recordings will be the instrumental backing tracks used by Slum Village's Elzi's on his 2013 tribute album Elmatic - and we are definitely not mad at that. The band did an awesome job on that album, faithfully recreating all the iconic tracks from the album, and these two new releases will be our only chance to have these Nas instrumentals on vinyl.
According to our sources, these new 45 releases were scheduled for today and are to be distributed by Fat Beats, but as yet have not surfaced online - So we expect them to hit stores any minute now. Stay tuned and peep a digital version of The Elmatic Instrumentals here in the meantime.
