I remember hearing Nas for the first time on " Live at the barbecue" a few years prior to his debut album. I knew then that I was hearing the arrival of greatness in the making. Once "Illmatic" dropped, hip hop would never be the same again. Some albums take years to amass classic status but "Illmatic" was hailed as a immediate classic upon it's release and it was well deserved of such lofty praise. This 20 year remaster version of Illmatic is a stunning and necessary look back at a hip hop masterpiece.
