  • Representing, it’s Illmatic
.
Happy 25th anniversary to my favourite album of all time. From any artist, any genre, period. In my opinion Nas is the greatest rapper in hiphop history. 10 studio albums, collaboration albums, compilation albums, mixtapes, his demo tape, countless features and singles, documentaries, movies, everything the man touches turns to gold. He had 8 consecutive platinum+ albums. That says all you need to know about his consistency and talent as an artist. His rhyming style and his thought provoking, story telling lyrics have become the bench mark for any rapper trying to reach legendary status. And it all started with Illmatic
.
When I first started really getting into hiphop as a kid I pretty much started on west coast rap. Ice T, Cube, NWA, cypress hill etc. My older cousin used to be a garage mc but was abit of an aficionado when it came to hiphop. I used to tell him about all this rap I’d been listening to from the west coast (not that I knew about east coast west coast back then) he used to laugh and told me to start listening to east coast rap. He gave me Nas’ Illmatic to listen to. I was fucking blown away. The first time I listened to New York State of mind, it blew my mind. That bass, the lyrics, it was dark, it was street, his flow seemed endless, I was amazed by it. I must have listened to that album front to back over 100 times before I gave it back to my cousin
.
Pictured here is the original Illmatic (not an original pressing) the 20 year anniversary edition and the more recent, live album with the National Symphony Orchestra. The orchestral version is fucking beautiful. If you have not listened to it yet I urge you to do so
