Being a Hip-Hop Superfan in the ‘90s in the Suburbs

For some of us, this was the only place for hip-hop music and info

I’m going back to Philly on Sunday to see Nas perform as part of his tour promoting the documentary Time is Illmatic. This will be my third time seeing Nas live. I also met him back in 1999. He is my favorite artist and I have virtually his entire catalog memorized.

However, I was late on Illmatic.
