With the suggestion of my roommate, I’ve changed those nostalgia posts to modern classics, it vibes better with me.

“The World is Yours” was my favorite track off of Illmatic, and Illmatic is one of my favorite albums, so logically that makes this song one of my favorites. I’ve always dug this song with the lazy piano-based beat and Nas’ flow over it. The black and white video just gives that throwback feel which makes it doubly throwback now.

I still think it’s crazy how many good artists there were in the “Golden Age of Hip-Hop” of the early to mid 90s. Even with all that competition, Nas was near the top. The world truly was his.
