"Escobar '97" produced by the TrackMasters is a 1997 single by Nas on the soundtrack Men in Black: The Album.

It samples the track "Move Me No Mountain" by Love Unlimited from the album In Heat as well as a line from Snoop Doggy Dogg's "Gin & Juice".[citation needed]

This song is also labeled as the 'Death of Escobar', where Nas dropped his alter ego of "drug lord Escobar" and adopted himself as just Nas.
