|No gas face for Professor Prince Paul|
Pete Nice recently shared several old-school photos from his personal collection on Deadspin. This of course made me happy, not only because Pete is one of my all time favorites, but all evidence of Hip Hop past (venues, magazines, artists) is guaranteed to put a smile on my face.
Wasn't all good though. Further digging brought up some disturbing information. Seems like Mr. Nash has gotten himself in trouble with the law, over some sports memorabilia dealings. The appearance of the Deadspin feature was a little curious to me, as I've always been under the impression that Pete had very little interest in Hip Hop today. Could this (reported) financial instability have him exploring options?
Not sure if there's still a hunger for 3rd Bass material, and there's that thing about people not buying music anymore.
Bad timing, Pete.
