I drink Moet with Medusa, give her shotguns in hell It Ain't Hard to Tell (Stink Mix) by Nas 2

Means I live on the wild side without fear. So much that I would get up close enough to Medusa that I could give her weed shotguns thru the nose.

Yo from the first time illmatic dropped i knew those lyrics were shotgun inhale and in hell, you da man nas

‘Illmatic was released in January 1994 only one year after I was born and yet it has had such a huge influence on Hip Hop and me as a person as well as my musical style. From the moment I heard the gritty sounds of the trains passing in the Genesis, before Nas had even spoken a word I was captured in the New York State of Mind.’

Nas fanatic and rapper Raw is creating the ‘Doc/tape’ (Documentary Mixtape) as a tribute to the classic album Illmatic by Nas in 1994.

Illmatic….. still bump that.

CLASSIC! Illmatic is relevant no matter how many years pass. In a hundred years who knows, he could replace Shakespeare in schools

But I don't sweat it, study long, study raw
My man Dion said Nas over-think the songs he writing
I'm not a wack performer standing near a corny hype man
Back When by Nas 6

I write fast, but I always write too much, he’s always telling me “you already had it, you don’t have to overthink it! You don’t have to keep writing. It’s done.”

That has a lot to do with being an analytical virgo; we overthink EVERYTHING and strive for perfection, something unattainable.

Best rapper EVER! Whenever I hit the streets, I blast ‘N.Y. State of Mind’ off the pod and I feel like I’m back in the 90’s when hiphop was hiphop. Easily my Favorite hiphop song of all time. Your lyrical talent is incomparable. Truthfully my ipod only has Nas and the L.O.X. in it. I barely know who’s on mainstream radio nowadays. I’m from Massachusetts and recently moved to Jersey. I’m a videographer by trade and would be honored to work on a project with ‘Gross and repulsive’ #Respect

Your a legend you rapped with the best of them and made it. Still jamming your music till this day.
