FreshNerd’s first of many #TBT posts is coming from my birth year, 1994. It’s Nas’ classic song “It Ain’t Hard To Tell” off of his debut album IllMatic. “Nas is like the Afrocentric Asian, half-man, half-amazing.” Enjoy.

FreshPick: CyHi The Prynce- Black Hystori Project [Mixtape]

G.O.O.D. Music’s own CyHi The Prynce dropped his latest mixtape “Black Hystori Project” back in February (obviously).

FreshPick: Sid Batham - All Lies

You guys remember that dope ass record I produced for L.A. & Frank Ramz? You know….this one.

Sid and his co-production partner, Sigala, fuse 90’s R&B with London influence making for a recipe of good fucking music. Keep an eye on this kid and remember who told you […]
