Rap Treats #77: Nas - Please Listen To My Demo (Originals, Rare, Unreleased and Freestyles)

A while back we put a Nas demo tape up in the Rap Treats section which gave a pretty good look at a pre Illmatic Nas, but this one is much more comprehensive. Freestyles, demo's and never heard before records by an unsigned Nas. This isn't his demo tape, but it is a compilation of his earliest work.
