Illmatic, Nas' debut album is an undeniable classic that instantly gave him respect in the rap game. The album is very interesting in the fact it relatively short,only 10 songs including an interlude, and having no notable guest appearances. Even in the interlude, the back ground music is Nas' verse on Main Source's song "Live at the BBQ". The album featured production by Q-Tip, Pete Rock, Large Professor, and DJ Premier.  The album was filled with classics including New York State of MInd, Life's a Bitch and One Love. Nas was instantly a prodigy and was known for his excellent storytelling and portayal of how life is in Queensbridge. This album is considered by some to be one of, if not the best, hip hop albums of all time.

I can't believe this came out in the 90's, and Nas is still huge today!  Yes, so many classics on here.  You should totally join the Music Matters community and add your review there for the other music lovers to read!  Thanks for sharing, Jedi :)
