1. Promo Item of the Week: Illmatic Buttons.


    Amazingly, mail was delivered to parts of New York City this week despite Hurricane Sandy's unwelcome presence. And amidst the Con Ed bills (oh, the irony) was this nifty little promo gift to tease Get On Down 's forthcoming Nas Illmatic deluxe reissue. Now you may wear how real you keep this hip-hop ish on your sleeve - literally - with this set of button pins brandishing a few of the 1994 classic's song titles.
