Half man, Half amazing.


Dig the vinyl sounds Wednesday at the Groove.  As It's All Soul told us a few weeks back, Nas' debut masterpiece Illmatic is 20 years old! Got some killer samples for you, the kind that are embedded in some deeeeep jazz tracks. Plus, let's delve into the Stanton Davis Brighter Days alternate takes along with cuts from the original LP and hear more from that necksnappin' album from Dope Gems!

Mt. Airy Groove
