Yeah, at first I thought you posted that concert vid that was out for a week or so.

Vid is really dope, track is crazy too. When I posted the mp3, I said this is Premo right away but then all these articles said Rick Rubin produced it. Oh well, never trust them.

Nike 25th Anniversary "Better Than I've Ever Been" - February 15, 2007 By : JustinL

The much talked about collaboration on the NIKE- commissioned hip hop track, "Better Than I've Ever Been" which features Kanye West, Nas and KRS-One, and produced by Rick Rubin, will be available on February 20th on iTunes.

Twenty-five years ago NIKE released the Air Force 1 to satisfy the demands of the most uncompromising and forceful players in the game of basketball. In 1982, the Air Force 1 became the first basketball shoe to feature NIKE Air technology. The comfort and protective qualities of the AF1 changed the game forever and created a platform that launched NIKE's long-running legacy in performance basketball.

Embraced and revered by the basketball community the Air Force 1's impact was felt way beyond its hard court roots. The shoe had something unique about it and was embraced as quickly off the court as it was on. The urban street culture that gave birth to this music scene is the same culture that has supported the Air Force 1 from its inception. In 2006, NIKE commemorated the Air Force 1's 25th anniversary. As part of these celebrations, NIKE commissioned a stellar cast of artists to record an original track that pays homage to the perseverance of the AF1 and the community that has championed it.

A remix of the track by DJ Premier and featuring the addition of Rakim, titled "Classic (Better Than I've Ever Been DJ Premier Remix)" will also be available on iTunes for purchase. The tracks will be sold individually and all NIKE and artist proceeds from the sale of the track will be donated to the "NIKE Youth Sport for Change Fund," to support youth programs that use sport as a catalyst for change.

Track 1: "Better Than I've Ever Been" featuring Kanye West, Nas & KRS-One & produced by Rick Rubin (Windows)

Track 1: "Better Than I've Ever Been" featuring Kanye West, Nas & KRS-One & produced by Rick Rubin (Real)

Track 2: "Classic (Better Than I've Ever Been DJ Premier Remix)" featuring Kanye West, Nas, KRS-One & Rakim (Windows)

Track 2: "Classic (Better Than I've Ever Been DJ Premier Remix)" featuring Kanye West, Nas, KRS-One & Rakim (Real)

All NIKE and artist proceeds will be donated to the "NIKE Youth Sport for Change Fund," to support youth programs that use sport as a catalyst for change throughout the world. This fund will be administered by Charities Aid Foundation America (www.cafamerica.org).

Scarface,Andre 3000,old D.O.C. and a couple of more cats could definently do something just as good as this. not to mention that this track wouldn´t exist if it wasn´t for the south. guess where DJ Premier is from? he´s Texas motherfuckers.

I really don't know why they put Kanye on that track, but goddaaaaaamn, I was surprised to see KRS actually outshone both Nas and Rakim in my opinion. Matter of fact, the whole track is simply amazing! Vid was cool too, I liked the graffiti stuff they used.

[Rakim]
Is y'all ready
For twenty-oh-seven, it's now or never, drought
Everybody's a killer, wow, we buggin' out
Since '86 showin' the crowd what I'm about
And they still wanna know when the album coming out
Ask the teenagers, OG's and ask the kids
What their definition of "classic" is
"Timeless", so age don't count in the booth
When your flow stay submerged in the fountain of youth
Ain't no doubtin' the truth, I'm off the meter
Everybody co-signin', even none-believers
I came in the door an became one of y'alls leaders
In a fresh pair of Air Force 1 sneakers
Uptowns, we call them Uppies when they on divas
Probably worn by KRS One teachin'
Nas "Made You Look" before the heaters
Betcha Kan had them on when he walked with Jesus
Classic!

[Kanye West]
You can't by this, superfly this
Like a shine is, your highness
When he's performin' look how long the line is
This is what happens when you make shit that's timeless
That's what happen these rappers is ????
What do it take to be a legend like Nas is
That's so novice, I'm so polished
I got the right to be a little bit snobish
I did a little bit of college
Semesters, it took two like Rob Bass
To let me figure out this wasn't my place
The beat's slow 'til you listen to my pace
Cause I be killin' shit, but that's evident
Y'all feelin' it, but I expected it
If it's classic, it's going to last for ever then
I'm everywhere you've never went and better than I ever been
Classic!

[Nas]
Perseverence,
See the fake hustler rapper, you see it hurts to hear this
Oh you went platinum? Yeah that's nice
Now let me see you do the same thing twice
Three times, four times, then a couple of more times
Please, you're amateur night, it's show time
One life to live, so live it the best you can
The world could use one less man
Not enough air, not enough car factories
To manifacture new vehicles, sedans and vans
When they do make the whip you like your chips aren't right
By the time you can afford it, the car ain't important
In the street timin', it's just iron
Cops keep firin', they runnin' by me
Leavin' you slumped, then they drive home far from
The hood brothers, they eager to jump on
I like to be the wall that they toast up on
I like to see the fall, guilty for doing wrong
A classic like the And 1's
The hustler's shoe, that's what I'm acustomed to
Classic

[KRS One]
How many of y'all got Criminal Minded?
You, you, you, y'all don't be blinded
Me, I got no jewels on my neck
Why? I don't need em, I got your respect
KRS One, twenty years I rock
I do it for JMJ and Scott Larock
This is hip-hop and we's a nation
Don't you wanna hear more KRS on your radio station?
Instead of broadcastin' how we smoke them trees
On the radio we need to hear more local emcees
Where you at, come on, where you at
This is the difference between emceein' and rappin'
Rappers spit rhymes that are mostly illegal
Emcees spit rhymes to uplift they people
Peace, love, union, having fun
These are the lyrics of KRS One
