Life's a Bitch
To sum up the third track on Illmatic, “Life’s a Bitch:
Life’s a bitch and then you die
Can’t say it much better than that. Nas and AZ get all existential up in this bitch and reflect on their lives and life in general.
As well as being AZ’s debut on wax (and arguably one of the best guest verses in rap history), this song is notable for the trumpet solo at the end, performed by Nas' father Olu Daru.
The beat is produced by L.E.S. and contains a sample from “Yearning for Your Love” by The Gap Band.
