NaS is and has always been one of my favorite artists. From day one when I traded my skateboard for Illmatic , in which what was supposed to be a temporary deal. Then the guy with my skateboard ran out of town and literally moved overseas. At first I thought I'd made a bad deal right there, but as time went on I have started to realize how great it was. First of, I was never that good at skateboarding so I avoided a lot of injuries and as a bonus, gained my favorite record of all times. The amount of memories I have to Illmatic is insane and it all started in the spring of 1996 (yeah late bus I know) mixed with tons of Super Nintendo, a link to the past and mario world and Illmatic playing in the background. Classic. Since I was so late to NaS first album, I'd to make sure I was ready when his second one released. Summer of 1996, I bought it right away. Recorded it to tape and took it with me to my uncle's house where I spent a lot of time. One night his friend shows up, with a whole lot of beer. Elephant, 7%. That night , I got drunk for the first time while listening to Nas - It was written , good times!
I got so many stories through my favorite music purchases, I've noticed one thing time went on, these stories started to happen less and less. In the future and even right now where everything is digital, the magic is fading. But thankfully, the golden era memories live on.

Think about music videos today, then look at this one. I always remember, right before the news on our local tv channel here in Iceland they had a spare time and showed this music video. This was on the radio back then. We were spoiled in the 90's lol.

This is another song radio introduced me to. The decrease in quality in mainstream music is incredible...

What dates do we consider "golden age"?
Im not sure about Naz and JayZ just on style and beat are they part of golden age of Hip Hop? Nas is a great lyricist, I can not stand JayZ personally never liked his music.

Some classics.

Had to include LL Cool J not his oldest performance but one of my faves. with Dre.

Wish I could post videos right now, but I feel as though one of the most amazing hip hop groups of the 90s has been left out. 3 pages and no mention of tha pharcyde. Glad to see del mentioned, and would also like to add souls of mischief, channel live, ogc, jeru tha damaja, group home, and large professor. Thank you.

I heard this on the radio back in 1996 and right after the song played, the radio dj said "that was Lost Boyz with their brand new single RENEE" I wrote the name down, went to the record store a few days later and found this gem called Legaldrugmoney. One of my best purchases ever.

Lol, hey I was going to post that very song, great taste my friend! That whole album was classic!

Third page and no KRS-One yet? Yes yes y'all, you don't stop...

And since I'm from Cali, I have to include some of the following:

Click click booya!

And this is just fun

Dear Momma...

Too $hort

and then there's Wu-Tang (again)...these guys were my obsession back in about '93-'94

Hell, there's just too much to post on here.
