I owned it for a while before I realised that this really is one of the greatest hip-hop albums ever. Out of 9 tracks most of them are brilliant and the rest aren't average/bad enough to bring the brilliant ones down. Most albums to me only have a few standout tracks, even ones like 36 chambers and OB4CL, on this album half the tracks if not more are stand outs. 10/10

10/10. Lyrically another level to anything else at that time, everyone had to step their shit up. It was a must, on par with 36 Chambers and various other classics. Impeccable lyrics and beats. Overall greatness. 'Nuff said. ONE

One of the best albums ever.
Year:1994.A talentous rapper of New York called nas create an album that will become a LEGEND:I Think all real hip-hop lovers know (and have got) "Illmatic".10 jewels,incredible tracks produced by Premiere of GangStarr,Pete Rock,Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest,Large Professor and L.E.S. Great names of hip-hop for a great rapper,a rapper that today has got the N.Y. Crown.There is just one featuring with Nas' best friend,AZ,on "Life's A Bitch".AZ presents himself with a storic verse that contains flow,rhymes,concepts,minds...a perfect verse. Every track has got something of magic (in "Halftime" there is a winter sensation,instead in "Mwemory lane" Premier introduce an autumn atmosphere)... Nuff Said.Classic.
10/10
