THE MAKING OF ILLMATIC

Pete Rock, Large Professor and more reflect on the making of the classic album 20 years later. 

DRAKE - DRAFT DAY (EXPLICIT)

Ashley Smith’s rendition of Drake is a nude woman apparently.

@MackWilds salutes @Nasnyc on the 20th anniversary of #Illmatic I think it was right to ask him about Nas being that both Mack and Nas have worked so closely with super producer @salaamremi and both artists hail from #NYC Mack is of the new generation of NYC artists to emerge and embrace and build Hip Hop as it is. #salute #nas #mackwilds #salaamremi #hiphop #thedon #heavyd #godson #likethisvideo #josegemstorres #hitsquad #l_i_v_e

Happy 20th anniversary to the #godson @nasnyc #ILLMATIC I always say that Nas and Pun have and will always be the very best lyricists/artists ever I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to!! Congratulations God. #hiphop #20years #nas

#tbt RIP Cheo Feliciano. I had to post this vid from the classic 1972 “Our Latin Thing” documentary featuring the Fania All Stars about the Salsa craze that took over NYC at that time. You can see Cheo here performing #ANACAONA with none other than another Salsa legend #HectorLavoe cheering him on as he backs him up on the chorus. Cheo passed away in a car wreck today in #SanJuan My heart goes out to his family and to my island #PuertoRico #RIP #CHEOFELICIANO #Salsa #puertorico #faniaallstars #nyc

FAKE DRAKE (JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE)

Drake disguised in a wig, glasses and beard stepped on on Hollywood Blvd and got people’s thoughts about himself. Hilarious. 

RHYTHM ROULETTE - ERICK SERMON

This episode or Rhythm Roulette features the Def Squad beat master/emcee, the green eyed bandit himself. Watch as he stumbles across some random samples and puts together a pretty dope beat.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Q-TIP (THIRSTY THURSDAY THROWBACK)

@QtipTheAbstract Since today is The Abstract’s bday, I decided to post this Black Fist Friday throwback of Q-Tip spinning throwbacks for the throwback at noon on Hot 97 with DJ Mr. Cee. Tip definitely throws on a few gems. Listen.

PHAROAHE MONCH x BLACK THOUGHT - RAPID EYE MOVEMENT

Do you want bars? You will not be short changed with this record. Two of the more superior hip hop lyricists exchange wordplay over a Marco Polo boom bap. Monch has his PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) album dropping April 15th.
