Hack Club (Blackie Sack Ep. 20)

Screen shot 2014-01-27 at 12.29.39 PM

What happens first is you can’t sleep. What happens then is there’s a hacky sack in your hand. And what happens next is you meet Leon Sugarfoot. Let me tell you about Leon. He had a plan. In Leon we trusted. Leon says the things you own, end up owning you. It’s only after you’ve lost everything that you’re free to do anything. Hack Club represents that kind of freedom. #BlackieSack #HackClub #HackLife


Nas : Biggie Said ‘You Finally Got That Monkey Off Your Back’ When ‘It Was Written’ Went Platinum

Screen shot 2014-01-27 at 12.28.53 PM

Illmatic wasn’t the only great rap album to drop in 1994 (in fact, we highlighted 49 dope discs that dropped the same year). But Nas’ classic album was most closely matched by his friend Biggie Small’s debut Ready To Die, which was released five months later and quickly dwarfed Illmatic’s modest sales with platinum-plus numbers. Needless to say, the pressure was on for the Queensbridge poet to make a major mark commercially.

In this sit-down interview with VIBE, Nas speaks about how Ready to Die helped him realize rap’s endless possibilities, the pressure to sell a million records and—in the words of The Notorious One, himself—how he “got the monkey off his back” when finally went 3x platinum with It Was Written. —John Kennedy

Screen shot 2014-01-27 at 12.29.47 PM

It just doesn’t feel like Easter until we’ve devoured at least one shockingly sweet, gooey-centered Cadbury Creme Egg. That said, they can be a bit saccharine. The solution is simple: make a homemade batch using slightly bitter dark chocolate for the shell (it’ll balance out the sugary filling). Watch the video to learn the secrets to re-creating this iconic Easter nibble, and then impress your friends by making a batch.
