Illmatic XX

Marking 20 years since the genre-defining release of Illmatic which sparked decades of inspiration for other young rappers and performers, comes this anniversary 2 disc edition.

Nas’ lyrical style and storytelling finesse coupled with some of the best beat makers and producers in the game, including Large Professor, DJ Premier and Q-Tip have ensured this release has maintained its influential status 20 years later.

Illmatic XX comprises a fully remastered version of the original hip hop classic album with an additional disc of remixes, the previously unreleased track “I’m A Villain” and a previously unheard freestyle from 1993.
