Throwback Thursday Nas is Like – Nas

I don’t know what high school was like in the 90′s but I do know what “Nas is Like”! Admittingly I couldn’t relate to illmatic,couldn’t read “it was written” and could give to shit on what “I am…” but this was my joint. I knew about Primo’s beats before I knew who a Gangstarr was. Shouts to Guru. After Nas is Like I was a different human being. I stole my fathers movado, wore timbs and oversized jeans and knew I was hard. Long Island is a world away from Queensbridge but you couldn’t tell me I couldn’t rep. What thoughts did this joint envoke in you?

    Valley Stream stand up @ HYMN. — This video reminds me of running to the roof of nyc projects and jumping from bldg to bldg for the f**k of it. Turning the hydrant on in the summer and having the whole block in on the water wars. Makes me think of Ron Artest, who I saw everyday in the lunchroom at St John’s, and never once thought he be so good in the NBA. We thought Felipe Lopez would be better. <– 1994-1998 shit @ hymn.
