The moment even I’ve been waiting for. Today marks the 20th anniversary of an album that has become a foundation block in the house that hip hop built. For this anniversary rather than write a bunch of stuff, or create a breaks mix with Nas in mind would be too obvious. Plus, we’ve already done that, more than a few times. This was a much bigger challenge. We decided to take a different approach and hand the baton to some of NY’s most talked about up and coming emcees. We already have co-signs from every major blog and hip hop website out there and it’s only been 4 hours. I encourage you to listen and decide for yourself if we made our own classic. Special thanx goes to Eskay and Nation over at Nahright, Stan Ipcus, and my homie EvBoogie who made this miracle happen along with all the dedicated artists. This class is ‘producing records off of clout 101′ for those who didn’t know.

I remember seeing Guru and Preem perform live at Roseland back in 2003. That was when they were about to drop the “Ownerz” album. I knew that I was witnessing two legends at the time but I didn’t think it’ll be the last time I would see them rock together. As I scroll through my twitter timeline, I see all the love that Guru is getting and it truly is amazing. Major shout out to all the blogs showing love to the legendary MC. It’s great to see that Hip Hop doesn’t forget legends.
