Video: Nas Remembers Illmatic, Says “I’m in a Zone”

Nas briefly speaks with FUSE about his magnum opus and how it influenced others, etc. He also talks about his approach to Life Is Good and says he’s in a zone right now after coming to the realization of how much better it could have been. I don’t know Gnozir, it’s pretty damn good if I must say so myself.

    A healthy baby with 10 fingers and 10 toes and no birth defects is an amazing thing tho. And that’s prolly an understatement.

    Can’t lie.

    ^^ a fully developed brain, lungs and kidneys wouldn’t hurt.\

    these problems are sometimes the cause of neonatal defects
    that aren’t necessarily obvious at the time of birth.

    Hip-hop heads will see what the fuck this album is. greatness

    But it won’t convert any non-hip-hop heads, they won’t understand it

    If you consider that a shortcoming, then that is one

    He ain’t too busy to notice all the critical acclaim LIG has been getting. Both of their careers are forever linked, if he doesn’t see LIG as a challenge to do better his next effort he’s not worth the legendary status negus bestow upon him
