Fucking EST from Three Times Dope? I was just listening to Original Stylin’ like a month ago. Wow.
Nas ft. Redhead Kingpin, The Original Spinderella, Rob Base, Father MC, Monie Love, Mike D (of the Jungle Brothers), EST (of 3XDope), Positive K, Das EFX, Lords of the Underground, Dres (of Black Sheep). Where Are They Now (90’s Remix)
Props to Onsmash.

The Jiggaman was all smiles recently when the team announced that its new arena in Brooklyn, Jay-Z’s hometown, would be called the Barclays Center, after UK-based Barclays Bank, which is paying $400 million over 20 years for naming rights. But just after the January 18 announcement, local politicians and journalists quickly rang the alarm on the deal, criticizing the team and its majority owner, Bruce Ratner, for taking money from a bank whose founding family profited from its ownership of slaves in the 18th century and was involved in controversial dealings with the South African government in the 1980s.
I try not to make a habit out of posting, download or listening to Kay Slay mixtapes for reasons I won’t go into now, but he made me do it with that cover.

A couple of new joints off DJ Jazzy Jeff’s new EP, The Return of the Magnificent. The Little Brother joint is a little too easy listening for my taste, but it’s straight.
