When I was around 10 years old, my crack dealing best friend/neighbor have me his Illmatic cassette. As far as rap and hip hop went I pretty much just took his word on what was good, which wasn't always for the best. Nas has always been a favorite, especially Illmatic through I Am. This is Nas' first single when he went by "Nasty Nas". This song originally appeared on the soundtrack for the movie Zebrahead (a Michael Rapaport classic) after Nas was approached by MC Serch in 1992. If you own Illmatic you're familiar with this song, but lets just remember how awesome it is anyway.
