Talk about overstating the obvious, one of the top5 Hip-hop albums of all-time EASILY. And to the person who gave it a 1, they probably werent even born when this sh*t came out and even if they were they hadn't made it to grade school by the time.

I give it a 5, One of the greatest. I dont believe I overlooked this album and copped every other nas album before this one. I wonder if anyone can post thier fav tracks for a bit of disscussion to go on here.

Mine are:
NY state of mind
It aint hard to tell
Represent
Halftime
The world is yours
Basically the whole CD, Get it,

OH my god i realize i aint use the word classic....

I remember when this came out. We thought it was pretty good. It was definitely profound lyrically but we all kept thinking it was too short time wise. Like it could have used another song or two.

Looking back over the years and missing tapes bootlegs and other stuff being released it has shown that the extra songs didn't matter that much. An essential to any collector of music, not just hip-hop.

Even though to this day I only like a few of the songs on the album and really only repeat the song that's the letter. I can't think of it right now but you all probably know the one.

i remember i was down in atlanta for freaknik in 94' when illmatic dropped and it seemed like every n*gga from the eastcoast had a copy. those n*ggas knew every verse from the album fro front to back...........they swore illmatic was like the bible of hiphop. so that turned me on to the young n*gga and he was spittin straight flames. its one of the most lyrical and well thought out cd's i've ever heard. 5 mics in my book. i wanna know how this didn't go platinum right out the gate when every cat from boston to north carolina had a copy?

One of the best Hip Hop albums of all time, definately a 4.5, I personally prefer Stillmatic though, thats a pure 5 in my eyes.
