This week we’re joined by our star witnesses thatavilesguy and Quincy Jones. In 1996, Nas dropped It Was Written,  and completely avoided the sophomore slump. He blended his commercial effort with his already elite lyricism and made it work. This week the guys put the album on the stand for an updated heat check. We get into where we were when it dropped, how each track has aged, and much more.
