Probably the most debated album in hip hop history is @Nas' #Illmatic. Its adhesive is one #FaithNewman former classic era @DefJamRecords employee who ran their publishing and business division for @unclerush & #RickRubin circa 87-91 later as a @Sony executive making a beeline to #Nas after hearing his #LiveFromTheBBQ verse and signing him. The truest hip hop head. @faithnewman19 Is the next guest on #QuestloveSupreme @QLS. We talk/debate/argue and laugh about everything classic hip hop and her time observing/babysitting/discovering/manning the ship (and sometimes regretting) some of the classic hip hop staples that shaped our lives between 87-97. Tune is @Pandora 1pm est 10am pst on continuous loop til Friday 10am est/7am pst.

Always referring to these albums as "kids" this particular one turns 22 today. Some of the best memories I've retained were making this album both good & bad. Gettin my advance & squanderin my loot on Polo & givin homeless people $100 bills expecting them to glow in a white tuxedo like the #BillieJean video. All the orange juice we'd steal outta the Geffen offices like we were having a vitamin C kegger, buyin a #NeilPeart sized drumset KNOWING I'm only gonna hit 2 drums at most, having 3 weeks after Cobain's death to finish up, take the money & run. Celebrating #DistoritonToStatic gettin more radio adds than #Juicy (.....only to realize that's because some radio stations violated Juicy's report date much to Puff's chagrin & gave early projections thus really meaning that 7 days of airplay for our song vs JUST ONE DAY of Big was what we were unknowingly celebrating. Week 2? we was depressed as hell when the REAL numbers was 734 spins vs Big's 21,000 spins. Party Over lol), going to Tower records binge shoppin. Posing in front of Ben Franklin Bridge & years later buying my mom a house damn near at the same spot I took that photo facing that bridge some 10 years later, Rufus Harley being highly skeptical of "a jazz/rap group who saw him on Arsenio (as a novelty at that!!!!) the night before & tracked him down in the white pages (ask your parents kids) & would pay him cash in hand FIRST to play a 15 sec solo on the title track (legend #JamesBloodUlmer would make us go through the same "I don't know y'all man same time same time!!!!!!" ritual w cash in hand in 2002 making #Phrenology's "Water" like "what rap group in their right mind would ever have ME on it's album--answer? THIS ☝🏾one), exiling to London broke & struggling praying for a miracle to keep me from coming back to west philly defeated only to hear my dad say "told you that you shouldn't have dropped out and got your degree at least", Riq & Rich taking our last loot & copping 8 large French Fries, tomato sauce & cheese to make the best ghetto lasagna I've ever head in life---then our electricity cutting off giving us the best laugh ever in our London flat. #DYWM #DoYouWantMore happy 🎉

Dude. Y'all know me. Y'all seen the pics. Y'all know my love affair w food. If you woulda told me I would abstain from: #PeanutButterCapnCrunch #SoulFood #Tastykakes #Bread #Gingerbeer #LornaDoone #GrahamCrackers #PBj #CheeseGrits #Snickers #FunnelCake #Hoagies #CheeseSteaks #OnionRings #Doritos #SweetPotatoPie #BunNCheese #WagyuSteak #CheeseIts #CheeseBiscuits #KoreanBbq #HotDogs #ReecesPeanutButterCups #RicePudding & #Psghetti for friggin FIFTY DAYS I woulda told you that you were CRAZY. This ain't even an 8th of my journey. But just wanna say that if I can do it!? ANYTHING can happen. It's hard and it's a lonley journey. But this is for the greater good. We don't know what awaits us on Friday (weird I thought getting a year older on the 20th would be depressing lol---trust me I can think of crazier things happening that day)---a lot of us are already in panic mode. But we need to get FOCUSED. And that includes our health. Way way way easy to start using food as comfort instead of energy. (@saintrecords hates when I get in "obnoxious health mode" but this ain't no joke) here is to another 50.
