Returning to the NBA Playoffs for the first-time in five years, the Toronto Raptors opened their first-round series against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday afternoon. Sitting front and center at the game was Raptors Global Ambassador, Drake. Going into the third quarter, Drizzy sat with Canada’s TSN broadcast team during the game, where he took the time to mention former Brooklyn Nets minority owner, and fellow rapper JAY Z.

This [Raptors] is the people’s team. Jay is somewhere eating a fondue plate…..it’s our time, we got to keep it competitive,” said Drake, who Jay recently responded to on Jay Electronica’s “We Made It” freestyle for his comments in GQ Magazine.

The full video can be viewed over at TSN, but below you can check out a fan-captured clip.

flatbush zombies my team supreme 2.0

Borrowing an old Biggie line, Brooklyn’s Flatbush Zombies re-up their BetterOffDEAD mixtape cut for the latest offering in their weekly #DayoftheDead music series. “My Team Supreme 2.0″ borrows Erick Arc Elliott’s same spine-chilling beat — the original track in its entirety, in fact — but this new version features two head-spinning verses from Bodega BAMZ and Zombie Juice to make the cypher complete. The Zombies’ It’s All a Matter of Perspective EP is coming soon.

Tomorrow officially marks the 20th anniversary of Nas’ classic/iconic/timeless (insert every synonym here) debut album, but really, April as a whole has been a celebration of Illmatic — and rightly so. The Queensbridge poet has dropped the Illmatic XX reissue, debuted his Time Is Illmatic documentary and performed his album in full at Coachella alongside fellow New York legends Jay Z and Diddy.

The rap internets have been pretty busy, too, and on the eve of this very special occasion, we decided to compile the best features, interviews and even infographics (see above) from around the web to help you celebrate 20 years of Illmatic right.

Nas-Illmatic-original-cassette

I’ve never been good at acknowledging the passing of time. We’ve never celebrated an anniversary here at MissInfo.TV. I’ve never felt comfortable doing week-long, self-congratulatory birthday tours. I have no idea how long I’ve worked at Hot 97. And I’m terrible at corroborating albums and release years. Is it a fear of change or a symptom of a disorganized mind? Yes, yup.
