I had Illmatic before Lupe did

| July 24, 2008 | 0 Comments

Lupe dropped a blog post over at OkayPlayer where he discusses his love for the Lil Homie, Nas. A pretty interesting read, for sure. I can recall some similar memories of my own from those times in my life. I like how he dissected that “Nas is Like” video. He forgot to mention the Ron Artest cameo though.

Here’s a snippet:

While in the midst of listening to “It Was Written” as a teen I was completely unaware of the existence of “Illmatic”…I remember some dudes beating a song in a car that sounded like a Nas song and I asked my homey what was that and he was like “Its from Nas 1st album”…then on a trip to my sisters college I was in her boyfriends dorm room and he had a poster of the “Illmatic” cover and I was like what is that and he was like “that’s Nas 1st album” and just so happened he had a copy (he also had a copy of “The Infamous” which is another story altogether…Yeah Prodigy…Mobb Deep played a big part in the evolution of Lupe)…So I puts “Illmatic” inside the CD Walkman, strap on the headphones and proceeded to have my life changed forever…It became my soundtrack for a time…all day everyday, everywhere…along with “IWW”…

So I guess I get major points for purchasing both The Infamous and Illmatic the first day they dropped, right? My Mom had to drive me to Sam Goody, but I still got them! Yes, I want a cookie.

Head over to OKP to check the rest, and thanks to Jeezy for the heads up.

Rashid Hadee – "Get Mine" (Prod. by J-Slikk)

Man, ever since J-Slikk told me about this track I’ve been hounding him for it. Here J hooked up with Rashid Hadee to cook up this track for J’s upcoming compilation, Flavor Spectrum. It’s been 5 years in the making and will be available for free download (what a guy!) this fall. There’s a bunch of stuff going on this with project, so definitely keep your eyes peeled for more content.

As far as Rashid, I finally met up with him the other night, so a big what’s up to Mr. Hadee – that’s the dude. I’m ready to hear this Pugs x Rashid Hadee project….

Rhymefest, Twone Gabz, Little Brother & Slum Village – "Plugg Family"

Brand new exclusive Plugg City (and not from that “Prometheus” character either) joint for you. This is from an upcoming Plugg City compilation that’s in the works.

Talk about a lineup! This joint is just nasty…

I’m going to drop the FSD equivalent of whatever a Funk Flex bomb is on this one. Still trying to figure out what that noise is going to be though. Any suggestions?

“I got em Iceberg shit, they thought I knew Snoopy”

No, Nico doesn’t say that. I just love that line. Here Nico drops a freestyle on one of Jay-Z and Timbaland’s best collaborations.
