Albumism’s inaugural year has been an exciting one indeed, and one of the primary reasons why is the all-star team of music-obsessed wordsmiths we’ve had the pleasure of assembling over the past eleven months. And we’re concluding 2016 on a high note with the very welcome addition of Gregory Dale, who brings fresh perspective, keen insights, and an unbridled passion for music to the Albumism fold. We encourage our readers to stay tuned for much more from Gregory, and in the meantime, check out his excellent debut article that reexamines Nas’ fifth studio album Stillmatic as it celebrates its 15th anniversary.
