Nas looks back at Illmatic.


Speaking with Fuse, Nas looks back fondly on the release of his 1994 magnum opus Illmatic. Released at the tender old age of 20, the album cemented his status as one of the truly “nastiest” in a genre of music where wordplay served as valuable currency. From “Life’s a Bitch” to a new album entitled Life is Good, his body of work and commitment to the craft is unmatched.
