it was written…20 Years Later

it was written…20 Years Later

1996 was an incredible year for hip hop. On July 2, 1996, NaS released his 2nd album, It Was Written. It was the follow up to his classic debut, Illmatic. This album would be his most commercially successful album spawned by the smash hit “If I Ruled the World (Imagine That)” with Lauryn Hill.

On The 12kyle Podcast, I will discuss the It Was Written and the significance of the album. I’ll also talk about the “beef” that NaS had with Tupac and Jay Z. Listen to the podcast and share your thoughts!
