With the theatrical release of the documentary “Nas: Time is Illmatic” looming, the good folks at Hennessy put together this remarkable infographic that breaks down the connections between who and what inspired Nas classic album and how that album influenced the people around him.
Action Bronson and his appetite head down to New Orleans for the latest episode of “F*ck, that’s delicious.” In between touring and recording his new album, Bronson hit the Big Easy to chow down on some good food and soak in the southern blues scene. Bam Bam zeroed in on the finest fried chicken at Willie Mae’s Scotch House, the best sandwiches at Coquette, late night fare at Mimi’s and a cooking lesson from the most dynamic chef in the city, Isaac Toups, of Toups’ Meatery.
With the release of Diamond D’s 7th studio album The Diam Piece (which you can cop here), the legendary Diggin’ In The Crates producer/emcee drops a jewel that features Talib Kweli, Skyzoo and elZHi. Give it a listen and then pick up the album that also features Pete Rock, Kurupt, Black Rob, Fat Joe, Chino XL, Pharoahe Monch, Hi Tek and more.
Filmmakers One9 and Erik Parker give some insight on their 10-year-journey to create the documentary on one of the greatest hip hop albums of all-time. Presented by Hennessy, “A LOOK INSIDE OF NAS: TIME IS ILLMATIC” is the perfect precursor to the film.
Vintage footage from Video Music Box with the legendary Branford Marsalis in 1990. Classic members of the Gang Starr Foundation are in the clip including Jeru The Damaja, Lil Dap & Melachi The Nutcracker from Group Home, Mike Rone of F.A.B.I.D., Phat Gary, DJ Vic Black and many others posted up with the team.
My Gold teeth were in full effect and this brings me back to incredible memories of our great history. Long Live Keith “GURU” Elam and the Gang Starr Legacy
