Lyrically and musically great. A very mellow, enjoyable hip hop album even if you are not usually a fan of the genre.

One of the best rap albums of all time. From start to finish this is musical gold. NY State of Mind and Memory Lane are probably my 2 picks for best tracks. If you love hip hop this is a must buy.

This is undoubtedly the best Hip-Hop Album of all time. A display of Nas' lyricism and storytelling. All hip hop fans should have this album in their collection.

Where artists today feel the need to pack an album with 15 to 20 songs Nas' debut has only 10, but it still packs a lot more feeling than 90% of the so called rap released today. Every single song on the album is a classic with age this album only gets better and it's a shame Nas didn't continue this standard.

You should own Illmatic.

The greatest hip hop album of all time, period. Every single track is a flawless 10/10 with lyricism that has never, ever been matched since and beats that are simply divine.

Gospel for hip hop fans and an essential for all lovers of music. If you haven't bought this, you haven't lived yet.
