In Chapter 3 of our Kam Breakdown, we cruise through KAMNESIA. This is a smooth record and Kam's third. Is it his best? Let's break it down. KAMNESIA dropped in 2001. The same year as Nas's Stillmatic, Esham's Tongues and Yumouth's Thug Lord. How does it compare to the best of that year? This is Kam back from a 6 year hiatus.

Thank you to West Philly's own DJ Aktive for coming on my show for an interview! DJ Aktive talked about growing up in West Philly, meeting Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff for the first time, and receiving his first set of turntables. He discussed interning at Power 99 FM, getting his start of touring with Musiq Soulchild, and becoming Janet Jackson's tour DJ. He got into auditioning in Puff Daddy's living room to be the Bad Boy Reunion tour DJ, Kanye getting strict with him for his scratches on the 808s & Heartbreak Tour, and Nas calling him out in the middle of a performance because he didn't know the words to one of the songs on Stillmatic. He also talked about him and Nas discussing a song together for Aktive's upcoming album Chill Vibes Vol. 1, his 2019 debut album The Tour, and DJing for NBC's That's My Jam with Jimmy Fallon. DJ Aktive mentioned that he wants to open up The Philadelphia DJ school to help the youth learn how to DJ and to teach them the history of Hip-Hop. He also has a new album called Chill Vibes Vol. 1 on the way. Stay tuned!

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.
In light of its upcoming 20 year anniversary, we're joined by Manny to look back at Nas' fifth studio album "Stillmatic", a classic which makes up one half of the legendary beef between New York rappers himself and Jay-Z. We talk about the necessity of this album in terms of his career trajectory, the various themes explored and how his current form compares.

A battle of hip-hop heavyweights this week. Jay Z's The Blueprint is the Spin entry, an album that functions as both a statement of success and as a model for how to Grow Old in hip-hop, a genre notorious (in 2001) for not having many artists with long careers (or even lives). Matt talks through Nas' Stillmatic and The Notorious B.I.G.'s Life After Death as other examples of how rappers deal with wealth, fame, and relevance as they mature. And boy howdy the rap beefs we get to talk about in this episode. Here's to "Ether," forever the best diss track.

B. Cox and J. Owe look back at Nas' fifth album Stillmatic. After a couple of critical disappointments in I Am and Nastradamus in 1999 and the ascent of rival Jay-Z both critically and commercial in the hip-hop game in the new millenium, the Queensbridge emcee launched his "comeback" with this latest effort. Being embroiled in a now legendary beef with Jay-Z for the better part of the year and amid whispers that he was on the decline, Nas emerged with his best album since It Was Written, reconnecting with producers DJ Premier, Large Professor, LES and others. Going back towards his roots of tales of street life and socially conscious lyrics, he completed his comeback with the iconic diss track "Ether", whose aura has only tripled in enormity since it was released on 20 years ago.The album was a critical success as well as a commercial one, selling over 2 million records.Follow The Vault Classic Music Reviews onlinewww.vaultclassicpod.comShow NotesAlbumism: Nas' "Stillmatic" Turns 20 | Anniversary Retrospectivehttps://www.albumism.com/features/tribute-celebrating-20-years-of-nas-stillmaticHot New Hip-Hop: Nas' "Stillmatic Deserves As Much Attention As Its Predecessorhttps://www.hotnewhiphop.com/nas-stillmatic-deserves-as-much-attention-as-its-predecessor-news.98635.htmlAmbrosia For Heads: Nas 'Stillmatic' Turns 15.
