VIDEO: Nas recalls making "Illmatic"
Rock The Bells has an absolutely crazy line-up this year and it feels like I would give my left hand to visit one of these shows. Not only do the audience get to see performances from legens like Nas, Rae & Ghost, Mobb Deep, Souls of Mischief, GZA/Genius, Black Star, Black Moon and many others - they are performing their classic albums, which often means their debut, front-to-back in full. This means fans will get treated with live performances of "The Infamous", "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx...", "Liquid Swords", "Enta Da Stage" and of course "Illmatic". Before hitting the RTB stage, Nasir took some time out to talk with Fuse TV's Hip-Hop Shop to take a trip down memory lane on the making of the one and only debut album of his. Don't forget to check out the "real" demo tape tape I put together last week if you're into this... and what True School fan isn't?
