XXL Ranks Nas’ Best Go-To Producers

10. Dame Grease
The Dame Grease/Nas connection was short lived. After striking gold with “Ghetto Prisoners” on the 1999 I Am…, Nas brought Grease on to produce four tracks off his next album, Nastradamus, which arrived in December of the same year. The result: Nas’ most regrettable album to date, rumored to have been made up of leftovers from the I Am… recording process. While none of the Grease-produced tracks were particularly foul, they failed to make any major impact. Nastradamus went on to be the last time Dame Grease would appear on a Nas album, though the Harlem producer continued working with Dame Grease and went on to find success working with the likes of Max B, and French Montana.
