    cosign + Slick Rick + Hov

  26. Paperstacker Says:

    This beat is fire and lyrically on point, and nas still still has his flow, not illmatic/it was written flow, but pretty close. Nas and Hov never fell off.

    Where all these haters who say Nas fell off? Fuck outta here, I guess Nas’s rhymes go over alot of these kids head these days, they just can’t comprehend his shit.

    HHID was kind lacklustre though, funny how every Nas album went at least platinum except HHID which had like his 2nd highest first week.

    just waiting on another hov+nas collabo, hov has a better ear for beats most of the time so if they do have a track on AG it should be fire.

  27. nine fourteen get that cream Says:

    Nas=G.O.A.T. this song will be a classic.

  28. alwayzambitious Says:

    ^You from CT or just visiting the casinos? It’s funny you mention that because they just had a poker tournament on the other night that was being held at Foxwoods. So tell me, which one is better… Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun? This cat from L.I. was talkin’ about Mohegan on the Greyhound one day like it was the shit.

    @ billz

    not from CT.. from mount vernon.. but got a team in CT so i’m out there all the time.

    mohegan is better when it comes to look and stuff.. they got better restaurants like a michael jordan’s and clubs and whatnot. But they don’t got poker. I’ma poker player so Foxwoods is the only choice.

    they run tournaments all the time.. i think there’s a daily $150 buyin tournament.. one of my boys did it on tuesday and won 2nd place. $8,000. I’m trying to get my money up there.
