    Today we’re bringing you look behind the curtain of what’s happening at our Patreon, where we have hours and HOURS worth of bonus material for all you fellow rap nerds.
     
    These right here are some highlights from our naughties rap album reviews, specifically Nas’ 2001 record, Stillmatic, followed by Mos Def’s The Ecstatic from 2009. Both incredible records that deserve their shine.
     
    With a stacked guest line up of producer MIGHTHEALTHY, rapper and podcaster Zilla Rocca from Call Out Culture and The Next Movement Podcast’s Rob Kheul, these reviews buried deep into our love for Nas and Mos, and where hip hop was at in the naughties.
     
    And of course if we’re speaking about Nas in 2001, we HAVE to start with his incendiary beef with Jay-Z, and one of the best diss tracks of all time - Ether.
     
    Show Notes:
    Ether: Best diss track ever? (02:00) Is Nas the best old rapper? (18:30) 5-Mic Moments on Stillmatic (35:00) Thoughts on One-Mic (49:45) The Ecstatic: Mos Def’s Madvillainy (1:01:28) Mos Def compared to Mach-Hommy (1:29:50)

Absolutely the best 90s hip hop podcast

Been listening since early 2020, these guys really helped me through lockdown. As a guy who wasn’t born until the 21st century, I’m in the minority for my age. It’s great to know that 90s hip hop lives on through podcasts such as these and I’m not alone. Shout out to Ray I definitely share his views on hip hop.
