Illmatic was the debut album from New York rapper, Nas. Upon its original release in 1994, when Nas was just 20 years old, East Coast hip-hop was losing its identity. Illmatic, with tracks like N.Y. State Of Mind, gave the genre’s birthplace a much needed shot in the arm.
Illmatic is reissued on vinyl LP.
10/10 Jack Customer review, 26th June 2017
There's just something about this album, whether you're a rap fan or not. Everything about it is so catchy, so slick, so musically and lyrically tasteful that you can't help but enjoy it. There isn't a weak track at all. Between Nas' mcing and the DJ premier production, this album blows me away. The AZ verse on "Life's A Bitch" is amazing. N.Y State of mind is my favourite track if I had to choose one, but all tracks on Illmatic are mind blowing. Nothing can touch this album as a pure hip hop classic.
