Represent: Nas's Masterful Debut Record These lines end the first verse of Nas's brilliant debut record, 1994's Illmatic. That verse, which packs 394 words into 40 bars, was recorded in a single take by a 19 year-year-old high school dropout from the city's Queensbridge housing projects. It's boastful, brash, and brutally violent; people are murdered, crack gets bought and used, and Nas steps forward as a narrator of the New York night who has blood on his own hands. The verse culminates in the shrewd self-awareness that knowledge alone can't encapsulate reality—a perfect end to the perfect beginning of one of hip-hop's perfect albums. [ more › ]

And according to him, drinking a bottle of wine a day isn't bad for you. Although drinking nine bottles of wine a day probably is still bad. [ more › ]
