For those who weren’t aware, Nas’ It Was Written turns 16 years old today. It’s crazy how fast time flies. We still remember listening to this like the first time we ever popped it into our tape deck. Shit definitely changed our lives. We can honestly say we would not be sitting here writing this post if it wasn’t for this album.
Thank you Nas.
