The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 181: 20th Anniversary of Stillmatic
On the latest edition of The Ave Podcast, we break down one of the greatest albums of the 21st Century (for the culture). On Dec. 18, 2001, in the midst of the middle of one of the biggest Hip Hop beefs ever, you know when they say, the Rose that grew from the concrete? Well, through the back & forth beef with Jay-Z, as well as beefing with Rocafella Records (Jay-Z’s record label), and the critics turning on him, Nas ended up creating the acclaimed Stillmatic, his 4th studio album. The album re-solidified Nas’ name as one of the true Kings of the genre, going on to sell over two million records based off the success. Among other accolades, it also achieved one of the highest honours bestowed on an Hip Hop artist’s work: It achieved the mythical 5 Mics status in The Source Magazine. I’m joined by Justis from Beats By Bruises, DJ/Producer DJ Keo, and SSA Family Member Shawn Adonis, as we discuss how important this album was for Nas’ career; Takeover vs. Ether and what it meant for Hip Hop; share our Top 3 songs from the album; and much more.
