Nas - His Life And Rhymes

YouTube video of the day: Nas - Nas - One Love (Live On MTV Life And Rhymes)

As I sit and listen to Nas - Where Y'all At from his upcoming def jam realease Hip-Hop Is Dead I'm feeling like hip-hop isn't dead at all. In fact, he's taking us back to '94 to his Illmatic days - it might actually be his pre-Illmatic days on this one. If the rest of Hip-Hop Is Dead sounds like Where Y'all At, then I'm cosigning it.

The live taping of One Love featured above is from an MTV taping of Nas' Life And Rhymes. I was at the taping, but didn't even know it aired until a friend over in the UK alerted me that he spotted my face. (Big ups and 'nuff respect to Harry Pitters from de Mindlabrecordings crew 'dem.) Thanks to YouTube, I haven't actually missed this show at all.
