The day that Illmatic turns twenty years old is the day a lot of people will realize they’re old, whether they accept it or not. Going twenty years strong, Nas doesn’t look as if he has lost a step in his journey throughout the game. His career was met with the typical ups and downs, but he is still dropping classic albums.
Most give Illmatic the most acclaim, because it shows Nas at his youngest and purest form. Everything Nas has done since then has been building up from this period, thus showing his growth. Regardless, listening to this album brings back a simpler time before the technological age took over.
With one of hip hop’s classics turning twenty on April 19, Nas is out here making his media rounds. This means stopping by Revolt TV, where Nas talked to Sibley and DJ Damage about Illmatic. During his interview, Nas revealed something about the Illmatic leak, he was the one who made it happen.
