25th Hour

“If you’re tired then go take a nap”—E Double from EPMD.

We did it Brooklyn! Did the impossible but don’t ask to me do it twice. Ok maybe next year. Could be some new Christmas tradition. But for now I’m gonna sleep if you want, go ahead get some shuteye. Don’t cry, close your eyes. Here comes your mother with those two little guys.

I need to put that Wu on: “I can’t go to sleep. I can’t shut my eyes.” Nah, that shit was wack. “Lay your head on my pillow. Pillow! And just relax. Relax. Relax.” Word to the Tonies. I want to watch Kobe make history but I don’t think I’m gonna make it. Guess that’s why the big guy upstairs made DVRs.

Thanks to everyone who helped and supported this foolish but courageous crusade. I really appreciate it. Maybe I’ll blog again before Xmas (I kinda got the fever) but I’m surely gonna bring some audio back into the mix. Putting words together all day and night can give you one hell of a migraine. Anyways, I’m out this bitch. No mosquitoes, niggas.

Sidebar: Nas just hit me on the cell. He’s changing the title of his next album to Nuh. He also profusely apologized for doing that Sauce cover without my permission. I forgave him cause I’m tired and my mindstate is type fragile right now. Ha!

Update: I was just fuckin’ with y’all.

    man, i respect the hell out of you. i just had to say that. many props, much success in the future and happy holidays.

    You set the bar to unprecedented heights…and I’m coming to clear it sometime soon. I started blogging because every open letter you wrote in beginning pages of every XXL issue got me amped….EVERY TIME. Your stories, memories and ill fated rhymes took me back to when I first started to get a grasp on what this hip hop shit was really about. Taping Clue on Monday Nights and waiting for the Holiday mixes on Hot 97 are distant memories since my TDK tapes popped, but I damn sure had a hell of a time remembering them. What I wouldnt give to relive the moment I heard the Scenario 2000 remix for the first time!

    Hands down, you’re the Blogging God good sir…

    Happy Holidays

    Considering the things Nas has done, I really don’t know if that was sarcasm or the summary of an acutal conversation.

  • exo

    well, i’ll start lobbying for a wiki entry, or something.

  • BMI

    Nah, that “I Can’t Go to Sleep” joint was hot…It was the start of Ghost rapping over damn-near full tracks if I’m not mistaken! And it was the best one.

  • latino heat aka yn’s new #1 stan

    congrats yn. u really did it. i know im hella late but i been catching up on all of them at work the last 3 or 4 days. was to busy to read them during the holidays, and i have nothing better to do here. the only thing i think i disagree with u about on any of these is that “i can’t go to sleep” was the shit. other than that good job homie.
