Every riff from Illmatic

Life's a Bitch

Illmatic is my favourite album of the last 30 years, and is often acclaimed as the greatest rap album ever, so I decided to record a video series showing you how to play every riff. Click on the links to access the videos and free scores:

As a bonus, you can also download a free score of the riff from Sting’s “Shape of My Heart”, sampled in Nas’s “The Message”, from his follow-up album, It Was Written.
