Massachusetts producer CHEATCODE gives Nas’ classic “Street Dreams,” taken from his sophomore album It Was Written,’ a rather imaginative mashup of the time-honored single. By combining elements of both Aerosmith’s 1973 single “Dream On” and Ol’ Blue Eye’s vintage ballad “Young at Heart,” over CHEATCODE’s crushing percussion, trembling bassline and crunchy synths, the Commonwealth producer skillfully blends over five decades of music history into one seamless remix. Conceptually, the remix reveals the juxtaposing vantage points of a young Nas revisiting his childhood dreams of being rich, while a seasoned Frank Sinatra dreams of buying back his youth.
This was dropped by Urban Noize as a late addition to their Lana EP. The Jay-Z verse really gives it a great feel. Dope record!

Remember these guys…they really don’t suck! Damn, this is really good! I’ve also included their third single, Mercury which I completely dropped the ball on by not posting when it came out. Better late than never.
