Throwback Thursday – Nas Is Like

This is a joint I actually enjoyed. “Nas is like sex to a nympho but nothing sweet“. I was intrigued by Nas after this video so I asked my big homie to burned me It was written and I am… Those two disc’s were AAAIIGGGHHH and I was hype but then I bought Nastradamus. The great fascination was done with Mr. Jones. I tried to get into Illmatic but at that point the album sound was just too ancient for my ears. I have no appreciation for it. Excuse my blasphemy dukies but Hymn is truth in the mist of rapper lies.

Check out Puff Daddy on his reckless shit after the jump. Yep you know I added “Hate Me Now”. After that last statement about Illmatic, how could I not?

And if you didn’t get enough of the reckless talk listen to this diss record. Ask Steve Stoute if the tough talk is just talk.

    Hard to imagine that ‘ILLMATIC’ could sound dated to anyone. Especially since it was so far ahead of its time. Lyrically its still better then 90% of everything that came after it. Even the topical matter isnt all that different from what goes on today. “Visualizing the realism of life in actuality / fuck whose the baddest / a person’s status depends on salary / and my mentality is money oriented/ I’m destined to live the dream for all my peeps who didnt make it / cuz yeah we were beginners…” And, that was a guest verse from a unsigned artist at the time (AZ) on that album! I still remember it from 94! You new dudes start putting ANDRE 3000 in the top 5 off a simple 8 bar guest verse. Its best u revist NAS’ debut.

    As for NAS IS LIKE, I just remember thinking that this song could’ve made the cut on that masterpiece that is ‘ILLMATIC (1).’ Secondly, I was saying to myself, “hey, I was just sitting in the cafeteria with that guy (Ron Artest) at school (St. Johns Univ.)!”
