Illmatic album for sale Product Description

Illmatic album for sale by Nas was released Mar 30, 2004 on the Columbia label. Out of a seemingly endless array of hip hop albums, every now and again something fresh and powerful rises to the top of the pile. Hailing from the Queensbridge Housing Projects in Long Island City (home to Marley Marl among others), 20-year old Nasir "Nas" Jones is less concerned with being an impersonator than with being an originator, bypassing adolescent fantasies and B-boy braggadocio in favor of jazzy beats, rap noir realism and new answers to urban despair. Illmatic CD music is a 2-disc set with 16 songs.   ...See Full Description

I bought this album at only to find that it's the censored version. No returns. Almost unlistenable. I would give this version of the album 2-3 stars. Otherwise it sounds like it might have been a great album. 4 or 5 stars.

THE greatest... now with fire power to cripple a nation
so few songs... so perfect. talks about everything the rap community is still striving to accomplish. 10 tracks of fluid, smooth, hard beats, and lyrics. every idea carries over several lines and every idea is completed with a sign to the believers and a middle finger to the doubters. absolute magic. now with new tracks that'll make any hip hop listener crumble and any music lover's jaw drop. if you're interested in hip hop or rap, or music, AT ALL, buy this album.

Classic Hip-Hop Album of All Time
I was at a music store one day and I had a choice to pick from The Notorious B.I.G.'s "Ready To Die" or Nas' "Illmatic" so I got both. Nas speaks about tales about the streets in his point of view. So I felt that he was writing out his heart when he wrote "The World Is Yours". When Nas said "I need a new nigga for this black cloud to follow, cause while it's over me it's too dark to see tommorrow", I said to myself that he's more then a rapper, he's a street poet that knows what he's talking about. So get this album. This is a classic Hip-Hop album of all time.

The New King of Hip Hop?
He's always been the king of hip hop. throwing one classic after another and all of you Jay-z fans who hate on him just because he had beef with nas. Nas is way better then jay-z he has better lyrics then him, better songs.
