Nas* – Memory Lane (sittin’ in da park)
I love this.
Can’t believe I hadn’t gotten around to posting Nas yet. Illmatic, the album this is taken from, was one of the first rap albums that really made me sit up and take notice. It’s also a pretty awesome album title.
I still count the sample here as one of my all time favourites. I’m just speechless when I try to work out how how they got from here to there. It still sounds so fresh nearly 20 years later.
In other news here is some further proof that Boris Johnson has a way with words. It certainly raised a chuckle, particularly #19.
