Presenting Danny Clinch, One Of The Architects of “Illmatic” (Video)

When even the photographer knows it’s a classic… it’s a classic, son. Danny Clinch, visual storyteller, speaks on another storyteller, Nas, and his seminal work “Illmatic.”

The day of Nas’ “Illmatic” shoot, photographer Danny Clinch was given a simple run of show by the teenage emcee. “Let’s just walk around my neighborhood. My friends are gonna be there. We’re gonna sit in the park, drink gin and juice and smoke blunts. And you’ll photograph it.” The resulting images are nearly as iconic as the music itself. As #IllmaticXXV approaches, Clinch himself recalls the moment.

Wow. So, Dr. Sebi’s son Sesa says Nick Cannon is the only one who reached to tell the Doc’s story; not Nipsey Hussle. Worth leaning in and listening intensely to this clip for that tidbit and other insights.

Former wife of the late Dr. Sebi, Ma’a & his son Sesa stopped by Ebro In The Morning to bring clarity to misunderstandings, and confusion about the herbalist and healer whose name recently surfaced once again after the passing of Nipsey Hussle.

They also spoke on Left Eye & the last days of her life, whether Magic Johnson was really cured of HIV, Nick Cannon reaching out to complete the Dr. Sebi documentary, and also told stories of people who had used their program.

Score for Comedy Hype! Would have been great to be there with the comedic greats. There was NOTHING that could touch these folks’ show when they were really on. Even if they called it a ‘Black SNL.’

Keenen Ivory Wayans, Kim Wayans, Shawn Wayans, David Alan Grier, and Tommy Davidson sit down to discuss “In Living Color’s” legacy at 2019 Tribeca Film Festival.

Enjoyed “Hollywood Shuffle” back in the day. Now I gotta go find a copy of that “Partners In Crime” followup to watch.

Leslie “Big Lez” Segar Speaks On Nas’ & “Illmatic” (Video)

I listen to music, obviously, from my hips rather than my ears, because I’m a dancer…

And what lovely hips they are, Leslie. Make me wanna sing to them. Have mercy!

Give me a late pass… mainly because Big Lez is so gaaadaaamn SEXY! Plus she is speaking on Nas’ “Illmatic” as one of her ‘Best Albums’ ever. So appropriate that this happened to be Episode 25 in a series since this is the 25th year since the release of “Illmatic.”

Leslie #BigLez Segar picks #Nas’ #Illmatic for her episode of #BestAlbums. The #Queens #NewYork #dancer & #radiohost explains why she feels a #deep #connection to the #album. She also talks about the power of #NYStateOfMind #LifesABitch & #TheWorldIsYours, as well as the production work of #DJPremier #PeteRock & #QTip.
– Unique Access Ent.

Great interview! And I remember the ‘wooooow’ feeling I got when I learned that that was Nas’ dad playing him out on “Life’s A B!tch.” Beautiful song!

Presenting Miss Info, One Of The Architects of “Illmatic” (Video)

The 5 mics was right… There’s no person that this can’t touch.

YES! Speak on it, Shortie.

“It did not feel like something that was created in a boardroom. It felt like it was happening… like a storm.” The legendary Miss Info remembers penning her storied “5 mic” Illmatic review for ‘The Source’ under her “Shortie” moniker before the album was out in ’94. That moment changed two industries forever: Hip-Hop and Hip-Hop journalism.
– Mass Appeal

You did not think she was just a blogger, did you? Naaaah, son. Miss Info was Miss ‘It Thang’ in several circles back in the day. And she called it on “Illmatic,” declaring the LP worthy of a rare rating of 5 (out of 5) mics in THE Hip-Hop magazine of the era. Shortie aka Miss Info had the ear, demonstrating that early on, and earned the juice going forward. With such stripes in the game, you need to listen to her speak on this. Kind of ‘made’ a career for herself and Nassir.

Presenting L.E.S., One Of The Architects of “Illmatic” (Video)

Yeah, Nassir doing a live performance of singles from the Hip-Hop classic LP he birthed goes way beyond ‘Mass Appeal’… but the channel has it covered. Especially with post-event commentary from one the “Illmatic” LP’s architects, L.E.S.

“Man, when I heard he was performing it… I was actually like, ‘What is going on?’” L.E.S. remembers the night Nas immortalized ‘Illmatic’ in the annals of live music when he played the album at The Kennedy Center with the National Symphony Orchestra as his backing band.

Eddie Griffin & Tasha Smith Could Afford The Big Mac, But They Had To Beg For The Fries (Video)

You only think you’re poor and hungry. Okay, maybe you have been (you hardcore grinder you). But Eddie & Tasha… fiending for fries and sucking on ketchup packs like they were gourmet delicious. That’s a level of broke and starving I have never even heard of on this side of the planet. But they have lived rich lives and forged incredible friendships, starting with their own.

Check out this TV One teaser for their episode of ‘Uncensored.’ They had to censor Eddie a little though (haha).
