Nas. Produced by DJ Premier. State of Mind Lyrics. Right at the beginning of the record, when he says, ‘Straight out the dungeons of rap, where fake niggas don’t make it back. And then there’s kind of like a silence, where the music is building up, and you hear Nas go, ‘I don’t know how to start this shit. And he wrote the verse in the studio. If you listen to . State of Mind you’ll hear him going, I don’t know how to start this shit, because he literally just wrote it. Before he started the verse, I was signaling him going, One, two, three, and he just goes in like, Rappers I monkey flip’em, in the funky rhythm. He did that in one take.
Sunshine State of Mind' has no such luck however, with very little sticking in the mind at all. A handful of tracks may be deemed passable in isolation, but turn to bland, forgettable pop-rock mush when lumped together into this ten track package.
It comes down to reality And it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide Don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside I don't have any reasons I've left them all behind I'm in a New York state of mind. It was so easy living day by day Out of touch with the rhythm and blues But now I need a little give and take The New York Times, The Daily News .

State of Mind is a journey, a voyage. It's not like their later works in that it is primarily focused on getting inside your head and not provoking your feet to move. This record truly lives up to the title of being a record, it's a snapshot of 1987/88 and what was going on not only in the electronic underground but also the politics of the day (the Tamil tigers sample ought to prove this point). State of Mind is often dismissed as puppy homage or yet another example of Leeb's admiration for Portion Control. Nothing could be further from the truth because much like Delerium's early releases, State of Mind is quite arduous to take in. I suspect when he split from the dog, this is what Wilhelm had in mind (sic) for his own sound, his own expression and he nails it here.
