On September 29th 1998 the stars aligned, Jay-Z, Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest, Mos Def & Talib Kweli (Black Star), and Brand Nubian all released classic albums. On that day Hip Hop heads around the country lined up to get their copies. Sports Journalist Bomani Jones was one them. On this episode of the Mogul Mixtapes, Bomani tells Jinx about how this day marked the beginning of an era in Hip Hop, how Jay-Z helped mainstream southern rap, and why Bomani couldn't stand New York cats in the late 90s.
