My favourite rapper, the greatest legend himself Mr Nasir Jones celebrates his 42nd birthday today. I couldn’t thank this man enough for blessing me with Illmatic, Stillmatic and the list goes on. Somebody who made me fall in love with real rap growing up in my generation of the 90s.
To pay homage, here’s the first Nas song I ever heard as a kid – I instantly became a fan. Obviously I have the explicit version but of-course the video had to be censored.
Yo all I need is one mic, one beat, one stage.
Yo all I need is one blog, one page, one read.
