“Could’ve Struck The Lotto” (Video)

    Among a slew of other lines, one of the most quotables moments on Nas’ Illmatic came on “Life’s a Bitch” when he spit “the buck that bought a bottle could’ve struck the lotto.” While I could spend several paragraphs outlining the poignancy of that lyric — I won’t — I’ll instead highlight the fact that the line clearly struck (no pun) a chord with Brooklyn’s Skyzoo. It inspired one of his finest tracks to date, “Could’ve Struck the Lotto,” which now has an accompanying heady video that you can watch below. Be sure to head over YouTube to read the lyrics.
