Nas circa 1993

Greetings on this Saturday morning.

The real heads know the first NAS track to really see the light of day was “HALFTIME” which was featured on the ZEBRAHEAD soundtrack (word to Michael Rappaport)

But for me this was the record, true New York Hip-Hop  straight from the QB.  Nas was so ahead of his time, a real poet.

New York really owned it in 1994, Wu-Tang, Biggie, & Nas…..

of course “ILLMATIC” will go down in history as one of the best hip-hop albums ever produced , 10 tracks…all bangers..but this is the record that started it all.

It aint hard to tell!!
