I hear a lot of people complain that music isn't good anymore, while that is all subjective and music is in the ear of the beholder.

I think a lot of the reasons why people don't like music nowadays is because the passion has went from physically being involved in the purchasing of music. Today, most people consume music through the internet. So they don't physically touch the music product.

I took it to the streets at Distinguished Cuts Barber Shop to ask what was the first hip hop album they ever bought.

The first CD I ever bought was Nas' "Illmatic" at 17.

The first CD that was ever given to me was "Who's The Man" soundtrack.

The first record I ever bought was GZA "Liquid Swords."

So what was the first CD or tape you ever purchased?
