Nas feat. Marsha Ambrosius - If I Ruled The World '09

Posted by Mack of Sound-Savvy On 2:51 PM

So Nas has revisited his '96 hit If I Ruled The World, first made popular with Lauryn Hill on the hook. This version is more updated, with dreams now realized due to recent achievements (i.e. Obama's win, etc.) However, I don't think this one can touch the original. If he wanted to update the song, he shouldn't have changed so much - Lauryn Hill should have remained on the hook (which would have been a great comeback opportunity for her), the beat should have been more similar to the original, and I really feel like he covered so much more content in his original version and this one is rather limited. Sorry Nas, I'm not feelin this update...

    Awww...the original was the bomb back in the day...this here, doesn't cut it for me. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
