I don't think kids that are sixteen years old today will ever know what it's like to pore over liner notes to see what other rappers your favorite rapper was cosigning or to wait for The Source every month to see how many mics an album you're anticipating got, or what the release date for it is gonna be. Or to go to the store on Tuesday (Friday if you had the mom and pop hookup) and to actually not already know exactly what the album you're buying sounds like.
What about that intro where the word SPECIAL would spin towards the camera with the crazy tribal-sounding drums going off? I loved that shit 'cause some SERIOUS shit was about to go down! I'm talkin' some Charlie Brown or Claymation shit, hoLmes!
