ScHoolboy Q: "My cousin used to play it. He was putting out a lot of East Coast shit; Mobb Deep, Nas, Biggie, Wu-Tang and I was always around it. So I just grew to like it. Plus it was different. Everyone was listening to 2Pac and Snoop, I was listening to Mobb Deep and Nas, thinking I was different because I was from L.A. But I ended up really liking it."
Nas, Illmatic (1994)
