Sample to Nas’ “Queens Get The Money”


Tonight I took it back and listened to that Nas ‘Untitled’ album and my favorite song off that album is that Queens Get The Money. I got to wondering what sample Jay Electronica (by the way where is that guy??) used to make the beat with so I looked it up and it doesn’t seem like anybody knows 100%. Well here’s the story from how I understand it. Continue reading

My World Is Blu…

After seeing the recent footage of Blu getting confronted by a fan/rapper, it made me think, “what happened?!”. People close to me know that I have been big supporter of Blu ever since I heard his debut, Below The Heavens. This joint was classic, straight up.

I’m a loyal fan so I hope he gets back on track real soon. “You’re my boy Blu!”

Every once in a while Satch would let me bump that album out of his system in his whip, just so I could feel the true depth of the bass. Let me tell you why that album is the truth!.

“no fundamentals, its one dimensional”

One of the things that I¬†dislike about Hip Hop is the amount of artists that are clones of other artists. You know there are a lot. The good part of that is the scavenger hunt for the real, original artists, because aint nothing like finding a new artist that brings something new and fresh to the game. Wale was like that for me years ago. The DMV artist’s¬†different flow, wordplay style, and thought-provoking lyrics was something that attracted my ears. Those Continue reading
