Throwback: Nas - "Life's A Bitch"

I know there was never an official video for this track, but someone out in the internets built this black and white edit of the 1995 film "La Haine" that fits the vibe just nicely. This post is mostly about how this track "Lifes a Btch" (Illmatic, 1994) has continued to stay in rotation in my ipod as a way to de-stress from a hard day. AZ and Nas both snapped on this and the muted trumpet at the end by Olu Dara makes this a timeless gem in my collection. At the end of a hard day and rough week, tracks like this always help to remind you that things could be worse.
