WIth his second release, Nas confirmed his own greatness..
Illmatic set the stage for criticism because after releasing one of the greatest albums of all time with his debut, Nas had reached what most still feel was his high point quickly.

Perfect example of what 5 stars mean...
This album is classic, period. All you cats who's giving these weak artists 5 stars need to do your homework, because "It Was Written" is the REAL meaning of classic.
