Nas...Since Day 1

Nas and Hip Hop have been everything to me since day 1. I have so many Nas stories, I don't know where to begin. Trust me fam, I will most def blog for my Daughters on the Father contest.....

But a quick story, back in the day when I was going to Baruch College in NYC, I use to chill between classes at Barry's Record Store on 23rd and Lexington. Now, this is before CD's, actually I think they just started coming out but cassettes were the thing in your walkman.....
This was back in '94, but when Nas dropped Illmatic he was doing a signing tour at record stores in NYC....On his way to Tower Records down in the Village he made a stop at Barry's Record Store (The owner of Barry's was friends with promotions at Columbia). my man at the store paged me (cell phones weren't out yet), and I jumped Law class and met Nas at the store getting his autograph (That's my avatar) and just chillin for bit. He was mad cool and high, but answered my questions and was telling me about doing the One Love video with Fab Five Freddy.....
Honestly, that was an awesome day.....I am a fan for life and have seen Nas perform over 20 times...back when he just did One Love and It Aint Hard To Tell at the 1st ever Hot 97 Summer Jam .........Live at the BBQ and Back to the Grill......and Halftime.......

Looking forward to Life is Good

    Thats ill to me cause like most people will probly never get the chance to meet Nas nevermind talkin to him and getting his autograph, thats something special in itself but you got to experience that at the beginning of it all!!! Not too many people can say that! Jus like on "Back When",Marley Marl & MC Shan said it best:"You love to hear the story, how it all got started!"
