Today is one of the Greatest days in Hip Hop. Today marks the 20th anniversary of one of the Greatest Hip Hop albums of All Time Illmatic. From Queensbridge, NY Nasir “Nas” Jones with his raw lyrical style and production from DJ Premier, Large Professor, Pete Rock, and Q-Tip Illmatic would become an instant classic. With tracks like “It Ain’t Hard to Tell”, “The World is Yours”, “One Love”, “N.Y. State of Mind” This album would stand the test of time. On a personal note I can’t go a whole day without listening to this album adleast once, thats how much this album means to me. From one Queens kid to another Congratulation and Thank you @nasnyc for this masterpiece. #Nas #Queensbridge #Queens #QueensBirthsGreatness #HipHop #HipHopHeads #NYHiphop #NYC #NyAllDay
It a bitter sweet day for hip hop. Today not only do we celebrate the born day of Terrance “Mr. Cheeks” Kelly, but today also marks 15 years since we lost Raymond “Freaky Tah” Rodgers. Both were members of South Jamaica Queens group The Lost Boyz. Happy Birthday Mr. Cheeks and R.I.P. Freaky Tah, 15 years since we lost you but your still here spiritually. #Queens #QueensBoys #QYork #Southside #RIPFreakyTah #HipHop #HipHopHeads #90sHiphop

Today is one of the greastest days in hip hop. 20 years ago today both of these classics drop on the same day. A Tribe Called Quest third album Midnight Marauders and Wu Tang Clan’s debut album Enter the Wu Tang 36 Chambers. With songs such as Electric Relaxation, Award Tour, Steve Biko, 8 million stories, and Midnight Tribe’s was bound to be a classic. Now while tribe had a  positive soulful, jazz style music, The Wu Tang coming out of Shaolin(Staten Island) brought 9 different styles of pure new york street hip hop with Songs like CREAM, Protect ya Neck, Can It all Be so Simple, Da Mystery of Chessboxin, and Wu Tang Clan aint nuttin to Fuck wit. The RZA,The GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Raekwon The Chief, Inspectah Deck, U God, Ghostface Killah, Masta Killa, and Method Man, would then go on to individual careers but always came back together to make classics as a Clan. #ATribeCalledQuest #MidnightMarauders #Queens #WuTangClan #EnterTheWuTang36Chambers #shaolinstyle #20yearsofWu #HipHop #HipHopHeads #90sHiphop

Good Morning ya’ll to all my #HipHopHeads today is a day of mix feelings for most us cause of what today means for hip hop. Two major moments happened on this day in hip hop. In 1994 The Notorious B.I.G. dropped his debut album titled Ready to Die. This album would help put New York back on the map at the time with tracks like Juicy and One More Chance. But on this same day two years later in 1996, B.I.G. would lose his once friend turned rival 2Pac seven days after he was shot on the Las Vegas strip coming from a Mike Tyson fight. It’s some what crazy that they happened on the same day. #HipHop #RIP #RIPPac #RipBIG #TheBeginingoftheEnd
