Q (UK) - - Cash For Questions -

Jay-Z

The Blue­print

“Jay-Z is my favourite rap­per. It’s a clas­sic al­bum. There’s no line on that al­bum that’s not per­fect.”

No­to­ri­ous B.I.G.

Life Af­ter Death

“I love Ready To Die, but I like Life Af­ter Death more. It was more vis­ual, I felt I was watch­ing a movie, he was like Hitch­cock.”

Nas

Ill­matic

“I haven’t lis­tened to it in a minute, but it’s def­i­nitely one of those al­bums I can go back to at any time and listen back and it’ll still sound fresh.”

Dr. Dre

The Chronic

“It changed the whole land­scape of hip-hop. It was the first time you’d heard a pro­ducer in hip-hop us­ing live in­stru­men­ta­tion, mix­ing hip-hop with the G-Funk sound.”

Nas

It Was Writ­ten

“A lot of peo­ple think Ill­matic was Nas’s pin­na­cle, but I think It Was Writ­ten is better. Nas showed growth.”
