    as someone said when presented with the url to this article..

    “this was before they started handing out 5 mics like newports @ the PR day parade”

    Classic material.

    I love this blog but one thing that would make it much better to me is if you gave more info in the post titles. I find myself hitting “Share this item” on a lot of your posts but since the title is non-descript that ends up putting a link from the sidebar of the Oh Word blog section that just says “Nas”. That doesn’t really help the reader out or probably lead to as many clicks as if you called it “Illmatic 5 mic review in the Source” or whatever.

    Just my two cents. Great work on the blog though.

    Just so you know getting more specific in the titles will also help people find this stuff on web searches.

    this blog is great. really great idea. but is there a reason the mp3s you’re posting are such low bitrate? if it’s a bandwidth issue, you might want to consider zshare or one of those hosting services.

  7. slurg says:

    It’s not a bandwith issue.

    If you’re looking for good quality sound, go to a store and buy records.

    edit :

    For some reason I Can’t leave a response, but for Nas’ demo and Knucklehedz old 12″ try these links

    Illmatic is simply amazing, since listening, I’ve been trying to track down any demo tapes Nas had made before recording it.

    Oh and by the way, for any one who is interested, my review of the album can be found here:
