NAS- HALFTIME

ILLMATIC is his story, a cautionary tale of the inner-city streets, and as Nas made it plain on his opener, “The Genesis,” this is what he did, with or without a record contract, and  served it up straight, no chaser. And because Nas had the courage to transcend popular trends, to separate himself from the ranks of wannabes and me-toos, he is honored today to on the blog.

Nasir “Nas” Jones was less concerned with being an impersonator than with being an originator, bypassing adolescent fantasies and B-boy braggadocio in favor of jazzy beats, rap noir realism and new answers to urban despair.

He is the epitome of REAL Hip hop,..always has been and always will be. Listen above to one of the best songs recorded in Rap history. Here’s to Nas, A Hip Hop pioneer from the way of Queensbridge who represents our culture to the FULLEST!!
