Nas

Illmatic


Backed by an absolute allstar cast of new york's topshelf producers premier pete rock large professor qtip and a youngster named les the album never lets up serious to a fault and lyrically dense to an extent that has possibly never been matched the 20year old nas stood on the shoulders of his predecessors and proudly proclaimed 'don't fuck with the east' we are back' 'illmatic' was actually a slowburn which might surprise fans that have come to its genius more recently despite an unheardof '5 mics' rating in the source breaking an unwritten rule of never awarding classic status to debuts it didn't go gold until early 1996 and didn't hit platinum status until late 2001
