Welcome to another Thursday, which means we’re closer to the weekend. For many of us, this was a short week seeing that Labor Day was on Monday. My playlist this week consisted of the King’s Disease album, NWA Greatest Hits and the Released Therapy album from Ludacris. 8Ball & MJG, Big Boi’s debut album and a 2Pac mixtape was also played this week. For this Throwback Thursday, there’s a lot to choose from when it comes to these artists. With Nas celebrating his 47th birthday in 5 days, we have to go with him. On his new album, the Firm reunited on the track called Full Circle which is one of the best tracks off the album. The Firm consists of Nas, AZ, Foxy Brown and Cormega. They only released one album together and it was produced by Dr. Dre.
The reception wasn’t great because we as hip hop heads had some lofty expectations. For the featured track, we’re going back to the It Was Written album from Nas. On the album, they had a dope track called Affirmative Action featuring members of the Firm. Check out Affirmative Action featuring the Firm up above.
