Probably the most debated album in hip hop history is @Nas' #Illmatic. Its adhesive is one #FaithNewman former classic era @DefJamRecords employee who ran their publishing and business division for @unclerush & #RickRubin circa 87-91 later as a @Sony executive making a beeline to #Nas after hearing his #LiveFromTheBBQ verse and signing him. The truest hip hop head. @faithnewman19 Is the next guest on #QuestloveSupreme @QLS. We talk/debate/argue and laugh about everything classic hip hop and her time observing/babysitting/discovering/manning the ship (and sometimes regretting) some of the classic hip hop staples that shaped our lives between 87-97. Tune is @Pandora 1pm est 10am pst on continuous loop til Friday 10am est/7am pst.

Always referring to these albums as "kids" this particular one turns 22 today. Some of the best memories I've retained were making this album both good & bad. Gettin my advance & squanderin my loot on Polo & givin homeless people $100 bills expecting them to glow in a white tuxedo like the #BillieJean video. All the orange juice we'd steal outta the Geffen offices like we were having a vitamin C kegger, buyin a #NeilPeart sized drumset KNOWING I'm only gonna hit 2 drums at most, having 3 weeks after Cobain's death to finish up, take the money & run. Celebrating #DistoritonToStatic gettin more radio adds than #Juicy (.....only to realize that's because some radio stations violated Juicy's report date much to Puff's chagrin & gave early projections thus really meaning that 7 days of airplay for our song vs JUST ONE DAY of Big was what we were unknowingly celebrating. Week 2? we was depressed as hell when the REAL numbers was 734 spins vs Big's 21,000 spins. Party Over lol), going to Tower records binge shoppin. Posing in front of Ben Franklin Bridge & years later buying my mom a house damn near at the same spot I took that photo facing that bridge some 10 years later, Rufus Harley being highly skeptical of "a jazz/rap group who saw him on Arsenio (as a novelty at that!!!!) the night before & tracked him down in the white pages (ask your parents kids) & would pay him cash in hand FIRST to play a 15 sec solo on the title track (legend #JamesBloodUlmer would make us go through the same "I don't know y'all man same time same time!!!!!!" ritual w cash in hand in 2002 making #Phrenology's "Water" like "what rap group in their right mind would ever have ME on it's album--answer? THIS one), exiling to London broke & struggling praying for a miracle to keep me from coming back to west philly defeated only to hear my dad say "told you that you shouldn't have dropped out and got your degree at least", Riq & Rich taking our last loot & copping 8 large French Fries, tomato sauce & cheese to make the best ghetto lasagna I've ever head in life---then our electricity cutting off giving us the best laugh ever in our London flat. #DYWM #DoYouWantMore happy

Dude. Y'all know me. Y'all seen the pics. Y'all know my love affair w food. If you woulda told me I would abstain from: #PeanutButterCapnCrunch #SoulFood #Tastykakes #Bread #Gingerbeer #LornaDoone #GrahamCrackers #PBj #CheeseGrits #Snickers #FunnelCake #Hoagies #CheeseSteaks #OnionRings #Doritos #SweetPotatoPie #BunNCheese #WagyuSteak #CheeseIts #CheeseBiscuits #KoreanBbq #HotDogs #ReecesPeanutButterCups #RicePudding & #Psghetti for friggin FIFTY DAYS I woulda told you that you were CRAZY. This ain't even an 8th of my journey. But just wanna say that if I can do it!? ANYTHING can happen. It's hard and it's a lonley journey. But this is for the greater good. We don't know what awaits us on Friday (weird I thought getting a year older on the 20th would be depressing lol---trust me I can think of crazier things happening that day)---a lot of us are already in panic mode. But we need to get FOCUSED. And that includes our health. Way way way easy to start using food as comfort instead of energy. (@saintrecords hates when I get in "obnoxious health mode" but this ain't no joke) here is to another 50.

Marley Marl lets us know EVERYTHING about: #Queensbridge Culture; about remixing & editing on guitar pedals in the mid 80s b4 samplers; discovering how records could be sampled & used INSTEAD of the source drum sounds; of #LawrenceGoodman & #PopArtRecords in #Philadelphia; of working w/ @imroxanneshante (& why he wished she was on #TheSymphony); #MrMagic's brash honesty & how THAT led to "The Marley Tape Reel" subsequently acting as #MannaFromHeaven for rappers & producers of the era (speaking of which his relation to #AaronFuchs & #ImpeachThePresident breakbeat); that Private Plane; @BizMarkie's endless talent & tardiness & how THAT led him to @officialBigDaddyKane (& not a robbery) #TheBridgeIsOver & @mcshan1 & how he ever so casually let Shan engineer & record some throwaway demo called #EricBIsPresident & #MyMelody by this really slow flow rapper called @rakimgodmc & wasn't too sure if the kid "Had It"; hip hop culture & all its trappings; every MC from #CraigG to #MastaAce to who was @LLCoolJ yelling at on #MamaSaidKnockYouOut' intro ("Come On Man!!") #HeavyD #LOTUG ---dog this is hip hop education you need y'all. Jan 11th 1pm est/10am pst tune in @QLS #QuestloveSupreme

Everytime I attempt to post the weekly #SoulTrain clip I get distracted. 77 was a transitional bridge of a year for music: Disco was in full swing & other subcultures were developing too (punk, hip hop, new wave) #SoulTrain had an awesome 5 year run as an Afrocentric cultural education show. 77 came & it was a #GetDownOrLayDown dilemma: do we grow w the rest of America or get left behind? It flawlessly navigated itself through the disco era w ease although I wasn't too fond of the new set design (always loved the iconic logo BiG BoLd Proud dead center of the studio. Now replaced w a small crystal ball and smaller fonts. #SleepyBrown's pop Jimmy was the voice of #Atl's #Brick (similar to Sleep's falsetto in the #Outkast songs he produced & sang on) their brand of disco & jazz gave them their first hit w the aptly titled #Dazz. This go round was for their sophomore self titled Lp w the hit #AintGonnaHurtNobody. Philly's own #SisterSledge were on their way w 77's Together but not quite ready for prime time that their third effort (79's #WeAreFamily) would take them. But younger sis #KathySledge still demonstrates a soulful mastery way beyond her 17 years. This ep aired 40 years ago Dec 24th 1977.

Then after The Roots Show I'm spinning here til 4am --in case you wondering I'm the guy who tries to figure out how to make Miles Davis, The Beatles, Freda Payne, Vanity 6, Britanny Spears, NORE, Lil Yachty, Anderson Paak, NERD, TLC, The Cure, Led Zeppelin, The 4 Tops, Bill Haley & The Comets make logical sense to a world that might have forgotten or don't remember or don't care. I dread last night of year gigs cause it's only letting me know a newer HARDER generation is gonna be that more resistant to classics (those who were babies in 1996 will now be allowed in the club...marinate on that one) I'm up for the challenge tho. Let's go #2017! #Repost @eastmia ・・・ Get ready for a showdown. Get your tickets to ring in the New Year with a live DJ set by @questlove from 1am-4am and additional sounds by @djelledee 10:30pm-1am.

GB: since when is your opening statement the unoriginal "excuse me do you have the time?" for all of your "future-ness" you pulled that one straight outta the Neil Strauss pickup line manual from 1998. No one even needs a watch nowadays. 2016: you're right. I've been at this since 2001 but my numbers have been low. Boss was gonna fire me if I didn't up my quota. GB: so you thought you'd just slide a pickup truck into our lane and you'd get an easy 9? 2016: well believe it or not Questlove I admire your passion for documenting my work GB: I didn't enjoy writing those, but I want people to be remembered so since our leader Ye isn't doing it I figured I'd pick up the slack 2016: strange habit GB: who you tellin, I was in the middle of a Soul Train post before we slid over---hey if you don't mind me askin' are you takin a break this year?

GB: welp I'm doing my best to avoid you at all costs including now 2016: welp I saw online that I'm not to touch Stevie, Betty or Keith Richards so I was just in the area and wanted to see if you wanted to join the pahty GB: well you can't exactly ask permission after this stunt you pulled---personally I was planning on hitching a ride w you round 2065 when I'm 94....actually now that I think of it: this marks the 4th time you tried to come for me remember Paris on the Glow In The Dark tour 2007? And before that in 2005 outside of London? And the Okaytour of 2000!?--- 2016: actually I can only claim the Paris accident, those others were my uncles GB: wait there's more of you? 2016: we roll deep son GB: true...true...so.... 2016:so........
