If you were alive in the early to mid-2000’s, you had no choice but to hear hip-hop music from a few places. Lil Jon and Usher were all over the place, Ludacris was making albums every year, and Kanye West was just starting to hit his stride. But there was another man who burned as bright as any of them.
