    Kool G. Rap Fast Life Featuring Nas for Throwback Thursday

    Welcome to another Thursday, which means we are closer to the weekend. Once again, I’ve been stuck home due to COVID protocols. My playlist this week consisted of only four albums. Quik is the Name from DJ Quik, The Lost Tapes 2 by Nas and the Call Me D-Nice project. The final album was from the legendary Kool G. Rap and his 4,5,6 joint. Kool G. Rap is one of the illest MCs to ever touch the mic. Earlier in his career, Kool G. Rap was a part of the legendary Juice Crew. Kool G. Rap went on to influence the likes of the Notorious Big, Nas, Jay-Z and many…

    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 months before the album dropped. Thief’s Theme was a nice track and remember it…

    Listen to My Top 5 Albums from Nas

    We kicked things off last week with the late, great 2Pac. This week, we’ll move to my favorite rapper alive and that’s Nas. Nas has been in the game over 25 years as he made his first appearance on a record in 1991. Live at the Barbeque by Main Source was the introduction to Nas. The verse on the track garnered so much attention for Nas and it landed him a record deal. In 1994, Nas dropped his debut album, Illmatic and it has been called one of the best hip hop records of all-time. Nas have released 11 albums, which include a double disc, 2 collaboration and 3 compilations…

    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 appear on his…
