Today marks the 11th anniversary of the release of God’s Son, the sixth studio album by one of hip-hop’s most prominent recording artists, Nasir Jones. Although God’s Son doesn’t receive as much recognition as Jones’ classic debut, Illmatic, the 17-track LP did spawn a couple of undeniable stimulating cuts such as “I Can,” “Book of Rhymes,” and “Heaven,” just to name a few. The Alchemist-produced “Book of Rhymes” receives the most spins from me, though, on a DAILY BASIS.
