N the A, the S-I-R


Part of that golden 4th qtr of releases in 2001, Stillmatic, dropped 12 years ago today. I thought it was earlier in the month but *shrugsies*. This heat was phenominal. I used to like it more than illmatic (I was 7 when ill dropped, 14 with Still, context guys). But if you still think ether is better than takeover then you’re just an idiot.

RIP Capital STEEZ. a king among men


Read this piece on The Fader bout STEEZ. It’s incredible. Eye opening. We’ll never have the answers we want but it certainly provides more closure to some and answers a few questions. RIP STEEZ

now were a month short from the one year anniversary of his passing but this is still important.

Now I dug STEEZ verses on Joey shit. But I just left it at that. Until SHE told me to check his tape. AmeriKKKan Korruption. And WOW. after that Joey didn’t even exist to me anymore. Cuz in Pro Era I knew STEEZ was THAT dude. I was disappointed when I got Reloaded cuz I had thought it was ALL new songs. But at least we got 7. And when the group tape dropped his verse on Like Water was magical. I IMMEDIATELY cut STEEZ verse into a ringtone (one I still have). Then a couple days later on I’m graveyard and I see the tweets. “The End” then I see Joey’s tweeters. And that’s it. No REAL answers about anything until that article. STEEZ, you are missed.
