Video of the day. EPMD:You Gots To Chill
I Love this song, not because it is my favorite EPMD song or anything, but it reminds me of the immediate time I knew that I would worship to the alter of Hip Hop until my last days. See, when I was in 10th grade my cousins brought down 3 tapes from New York(for my birthday on Aug 31st) that would change my life forever. Those tapes included Big Daddy Kane's "Long Live the Kane", Public Enemy's "It Takes a Nation of Millions..", and EPMD's "Strictly Business". Of course I loved Hip Hop before then, but having those three classic albums at the same time intensified my love for the art-form. Even though me and my cousins hardly talk any more, whether it is because of responsibilities or because I'm a horrible relative, I will always be eternally grateful for the best birthday present I have ever received.
