'97 Retrospective, Celebrating 20 Years --> "The Firm"

Most of this retrospective will be taken verbatim from my initial post on May 1, 2014. And of course, any new thoughts will be bold and italicized. 

Just added as of 10/22/17. This will be my next to last post on the blog.

'97 Retrospective, Celebrating 20 Years --> "Silent Weapons For Quiet Wars"

Pardon me for being a day late with this one. This retrospective will be taken verbatim from my April 23, 2014 post on this album, with a few updated, bold/italicized thoughts here and there. Also, there will be an announcement on the blog coming at some point, still trying to determine when I will reveal it. Thanks for your continued support.

'97 Retrospective, Celebrating 20 Years ---> "No Way Out"

With this album being one of the cornerstones of my 1997 summer, you can attribute this post slipping my mind to my busy schedule. So with that being said, this retrospective is from my post on October 10, 2012, with new/updated thoughts in bold, plus I changed the look from the original post.

R.I.P. Prodigy

Oh man, I'm still in shock and disbelief after receiving this news from my homie Charles. I was informed that Prodigy, one half of the Infamous Mobb Deep, has sadly passed away at the age of 42 (there are no additional details on the cause of death as of this posting). I have followed this man's career since 1995 (JUST played "Trife Life" this morning) and even with knowledge of him having sickle cell anemia, this is still a huge shock to me and to say he will be missed IS an understatement. My thoughts and prayers go out to him, his family and friends. Rest in peace/paradise Prodigy (facepalm).
