The debut album from New York rapper Nas. Also the best album ever released. 5 of the albums 10 songs were released as singles. A 10th anniversary edition was released in 2004 with a bonus disc containing 5 songs. The album was certified platinum in the United States. Nas' lyricism on Illmatic is unmatchable and insurpassable.
Sean: Yo Nasir, what's your favorite rap album of all time?

Nasir: Illmatic no doubt.

Sean: Ok ok, spit me something real quick.

Nasir: It ain't hard to tell, I excel, then prevail
The mic is contacted, I attract clientele
My mic check is life or death, breathin a sniper's breath
I exhale the yellow smoke of buddha through righteous steps
Deep like The Shinin', sparkle like a diamond
Sneak a uzi on the island in my army jacket linin
Hit the Earth like a comet, invasion
Nas is like the Afrocentric Asian, half-man, half-amazin
Cause in my physical, I can express through song
Delete stress like Motrin, then extend strong
I drank Moet with Medusa, give her shotguns in hell
From the spliff that I lift and inhale, it ain't hard to tell
