The classic line I have had stick with me forever is from here “Much success to you even if you wish me the opposite”
Classic album 🔥
So much heat on here. Dr Knockboot is the reason I got into having session musicians replay samples. Couldn’t get a clean chop, plus no stems. There’s also ‘Nas is Like’.
The music on this album was dope as fuck
Call me crazy but because I was born in 91 and been a huge Jay-Z Stan all my life, I never liked Nas. Never listened to him— you’d never know that today though, I absolutely love that man.
