Nas Street’s Disciple Released 15 Years Ago

15 years ago was a nice day if you’re a fan of hip hop. We already covered that T.I. dropped his Urban Legend project on this day. My favorite rapper alive, Nas released his seventh album Street’s Disciple. Street’s Disciple was a double album dropped by Nas and it received mixed reviews. While Street’s Disciple isn’t one of my top 5 Nas albums it’s still a solid effort. Street’s Disciple was the follow-up to his incredibly dope God’s Son album. Thief’s Theme was the first official single from Street’s Disciple, and it was released about five ... [read more]

Stillmatic Released 15 Years Ago by Nas

Think back to the year of 2001, which was a pretty eventful year. Of course, we had the tragedy of 9/11 and if you’re a hip hop fan like me, then you remember the Nas/Jay-Z beef. When Jay-Z released the Blueprint on 9/11, Takeover was on the album, which was a track he took aim at Mobb Deep and most notably, Nas. There was a buzz about how Nas would respond to Jay-Z as he kept things under wraps. With Nas prepping a new album, he released a response to Jay-Z with Ether and it has become one of the hardest diss tracks EVER. The track would ... [read more]

It Was Written Released by Nas 20 Years Ago

My favorite rapper alive released his second album, It Was Written on July 2, 1996. The album was definitely different from his debut album, Illmatic, which is an album that many considered one of, if not the greatest hip hop album of all-time. I’ve never considered it, but this album right here, It Was Written is a different story because this is probably my favorite Nas joint. It Was Written opened with one of my favorite intros to an album where he portrays a slave that’s about to escape. While he boasted on the track, Got Urself A Gun on ... [read more]

On April 19, 1994, hip hop history was made when Nas aka Nasir Jones dropped his debut album, Illmatic.
