I think I got the same phone call that True Hoop did. Mr. Santos, you two-timer! Anyways, I’m repeating the message, strictly a cut and paste job:

Nike has called upon some of Hip Hops most elite artist to create an original song; Kanye West, Nas, KRS-ONE, and Rakim. There are two versions of the song, “Better Than I’ve Ever Been” (prod. Rick Rubin) and the remix “Classic (Better Than I’ve Ever Been)” (prod. DJ Premier). Rakim is only featured on the remix and not the original.

A video was also created for the DJ Premier remix. All of the audio and video is below. ALL of the money generated from iTunes will be donated to youth charity programs in Baltimore, we are trying to generate as much traffic as possible to the Itunes store to really help the kids out.

There you have it. They brought out the big guns. Premier, Rick Rubin, Rakim. Not to mention old KRS and Nas and Kanye. So much for Juelz having the commercial to himself. This is fire, albeit unrelated.
