Illmatic by Nas review: Happy 25th anniversary to this classic right here: Illmatic, an album that is timeless and forever a classic. Released in 1994, Illmatic showcased Nas capabilities as a storyteller, lyricist and as a songwriter. With production from Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Large Professor etc., it gives this album a soul jazz sampled/boom bap style that would please hip hop junkies & fans of this genre. The lead single "It Ain't Hard To Tell," with production from Large Professor, is an example of his lyricism with each bar. NY State Of Mind is another classic, produced by DJ Premier, displays with his state of mind on New York, you can visualize it with his top tier lyrics bar for bar. Life's A Bitch debuts AZ on this album, where both reflect on their lives, both delivered incredibles verses on their life in general. The third single "The World Is Yours,"provides a jazzy boom bap type beat from Pete Rock, it is absolute classic and is an example of East Coast Hip Hop. One Love is the final single from Illmatic, with Q-Tip providing vocals, his storytelling abilities are shown as he switches perspective in his verses. Overall, Illmatic is the crown jewel of 90's rap, it showed off his lyricism, storytelling abilities, this is my favorite album of the decade, with a jazzy/boom bap sound help put the East Coast back on the map.
• Favorites: NY State Of Mind, Represent, One Love, The World Is Yours, Life's A Bitch & Memory Lane (Sittin In Da Park)
• Rating: 10/10

Nas: Yo! MTV Raps Interview '94 📺💎
25 years ago today, Nas released "Illmatic". the crown jewel of 90s rap classics. it is without a doubt one of the greatest hip hop albums of all time Nas arrived on the scene with profound lyricism, backed by production from legends like Pete Rock, Large Professor, DJ Premier, Q-Tip and L.E.S. he gives you 10 tracks of his story and the result brings us classics like "Life's A Bitch", "It Ain't Hard To Tell", "Represent" and my favorite track off the album "The World Is Yours". "Illmatic" is a special moment in hip hop it came at a time that the West Coast was seemingly dominating hip hop alongside Wu-Tang Clan, The Notorious BIG and among others, Nas helped bring an East Coast renaissance of sorts to the genre. when you ask a fan what's one of the greatest albums in hip hop history chances are this album comes more often than not. Nas came into the game and made an impact on his own accord. happy 25th anniversary to a hip hop classic. what's y'all favorite track off "Illmatic"???!!!... #nas #eastcoasthiphop #queensbridgeNY #nasescobar #esco #illwill #illmatic #QB #queensbridge #41stside #MTV #classic #legendary #90shiphop #realhiphoponly #fuckmumblerap #1994

 #flashbackfriday Released on April 19, 1994, today marks the 25th anniversary of “Illmatic”, the landmark debut studio album from Queensbridge rapper Nas (@nas) 📓
Released on Columbia Records (@columbiarecords), and straight out the f*ckin’ dungeons of rap, “Illmatic” is the gold standard of hip-hop albums. Flawless lyrically, Nas spit tales of inner-city life that were wise well beyond his years. Introduced on the Main Source (@mainsourceband @k_cut) track ‘Live At The Barbeque’ in 1991, the buzz around Nasty Nas had many calling him the second coming of Rakim. His first single in 1992, ‘Halftime’, continued the anticipation for a solo project. Helping Nas sign his first major label deal, MC Serch (@emceeserch) began work as Executive Producer on “Illmatic”. With production on the album handled by DJ Premier (@djpremier), Pete Rock (@realpeterock), Large Professor (@xplargepro), Q-Tip (@qtiptheabstract) and L.E.S. (@dj_les), Nas assembled an atmospheric soundscape for which to deliver his hardcore poetics. “Illmatic” also boasted only one guest feature, the introduction of Brooklyn lyricist AZ (@quietazmoney) on the track ‘Life’s A Bitch’ 📓
Flawless lyricism. Celebrated production. Iconic artwork. Five Mics in The Source (@thesource). Platinum status. It ain’t hard to tell, Nas excelled, then prevailed 📓
———————————————————————
Standout Tracks 🎶
- ‘The Genesis’
- ‘N.Y. State Of Mind’
- ‘Life’s A Bitch’ (feat. AZ)
- ‘The World Is Yours’
- ‘Halftime’
- ‘Memory Lane (Sittin’ In Da Park)’
- ‘One Love’
- ‘One Time 4 Your Mind’
- ‘Represent’
- ‘It Ain’t Hard To Tell’

Today In Hip Hop History: 
On April 19, 1994 American Rapper "Nas" released his debut album ( Illmatic). On Columbia Records. 
Today Mark's its 25th Anniversary! 
It can be argued and is widely accepted that this Record is the greatest album in Hip Hop History. It took the essence of Hip hop culture, the feel of New York, the life that is lived within the ghetto, and it was stored like a time capsule on this album. Nobody I mean NOBODY can say one wrong word about this Masterpiece truly. Forever grateful for this Record and not a day goes by that I dont listen to at least one song from this work of art a day.

Today in #HipHopHistory: It's been #9years since we lost the legendary #Guru of #GangStarr! #RIPGuru #KeithEdwardElam (July 17, 1966 – April 19, 2010), better known by his stage name Guru (Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal), was a rapper, producer, and actor best known as a member of the #hiphop duo Gang Starr, along with #DJPremier. He was born in #Roxbury, #Boston. Elam began his music career under the pseudonym #MCKeithyE but later changed his name to Guru. He founded Gang Starr in #1987. The group initially released three records, produced by #The45King, on the Wild Pitch Records record label, but these records received little attention. After a change in line-up, the group consisted of rapper Guru and beat maker DJ Premier. Gang Starr released its first LP #NoMoreMrNiceGuy on #WildPitchRecords; the group achieved a sizable following and released six critically acclaimed and influential albums from 1989 to 2003. Two albums, #MomentofTruth (1998) and compilation #FullClip: A Decade of Gang Starr (1999) were certified gold in the United States by the RIAA. Gang Starr made archetypal #EastCoastHipHop with Guru's rhyming described as sharp-eyed but anti-ostentatious. Guru would also go on to create several #Jazzmatazz albums. #classichiphop

Method Man x Jermaine Dupri back in '96. if y'all guys ask me who's my all time favorite Wu-Tang member, cliche as fuck but ima have to go with Meth on that one. being the first Wu member to drop a solo album after the critical success of "Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)" he gave us high energy, heartfelt emotion and rugged accounts of the street life on "Tical" and he knocked it out of the park plus the Wu had a huge buzz around this time until they released "Wu-Tang Forever". years ago, So So Def was a huge part of the hip hop scene, with Jermaine Dupri leading the charge. he was the man behind the movement by workin' on Kris Kross albums that took the world by storm, he would bring the world Da Brat, Xscape and Bow Wow that would end up seeing instant success. So So Def is a legendary label in hip hop you can't deny that. this pic speaks nostalgia for y'all... #methodman #eastcoasthiphop #statenislandNY #wutangclan #meth #defjam #wutang #wu #shaolin #killabees #wutangforever #jermainedupri #sourcemagazine #classic #legendary #90shiphop #realhiphoponly #fuckmumblerap #1996

So So Def is a legendary label in hip hop you can't deny that. this pic speaks nostalgia for y'all... #methodman #eastcoasthiphop #statenislandNY #wutangclan #meth #defjam #wutang #wu #shaolin #killabees #wutangforever #jermainedupri #sourcemagazine #classic #legendary #90shiphop #realhiphoponly #fuckmumblerap #1996

This...is my answer to the popular question of "What album would you take with you, if you were stranded on an island?" For me, Illmatic was the reinvention of the Wheel, as far as lyricism was concerned...and I grew up on the Big Daddy Kanes, the Rakims, the Kool G Raps, etc.  Hearing greatness was almost common at the time. Even if you experienced/celebrated any of the great albums that dropped from 1991, up to April 19, 1994 (we were living in, what many refer to, the Second Golden Era in Rap), Illmatic felt different...REAL different. It delivered on the promise heard on Main Source's Breakin' Atoms, on Live @ the BBQ (classic album, classic posse cut) in 1991, on through to ‪MC Serch‬'s Back to the Grill single and the Halftime joint from the ‪Zebrahead‬ OST, both from 1992.

I remember my sister copping the CD from ‪2 Live Music‬ (Northeast Ohio music heads know) and drove about 30+ minutes away, to drop it off.  Just getting excited hearing the intro and picking up on the sample from the movie, Wild Style (do your Googles LOL) to the piano stabs on NY State of Mind...I knew that what I was hearing was next level. But it was the Ahmad Jamal sample on The World is Yours that had me and a homie (if you're reading this, What's up J?) just staring in disbelief. We played it back for the next 45 minutes to an hour. That feeling >>>> As a music fan, you hope to connect to a song, an album in that way. Illmatic was/is transcendent. It inspired. It became a soundtrack to many people's lives. Nine songs...a perfect album. 25 years later? Holds up like it was April 19, 1994.

Russell Jones was a unique soul, never destined to fit within society’s constrictions. He was unpredictable, often unreliable and always genuine. As Ol’ Dirty Bastard, he warped the definition of a rapper. With his missing teeth, crazed expression and half slurred, half shouted rhyme style, Jones was never anything other than himself. ~Buddha Monk

Today is the 25th anniversary of the release, of my favorite album of all time. Illmatic has influenced hip hop more than any other album ever, and spawned the golden era of the genre. It was the soundtrack to my adolescence, and still gives me goosebumps to this day!
Thank you Nasir Jones, for this priceless gift 🙏🏽
