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!

‘Dark Girls’ premieres this Sunday, June 23, on OWN, at 10/9 PM CST. This ought to be good. Oprah might just have as many fellas watching this show on her network.
