      N-A-S those are the letter that spell greatness. Illmatic is regarded by some as one of the greatest albums of all time. To understand how great this album is you would have to take a look at how Nas started his career.

      At 17 Years old he was already an amazing package of lyrics. Tho this album is only 10 real tracks, Not counting the intro though it is about as complete as can be.

      Nas starts out the album with Genisis which marks the


      beginning for Nas’ career. This intro In my Opinion is a great way to start the album.

      The album starts with NY State of Mind which outlines his lifestyle fo a person from NY. I like it because it shows how people from NY live on the day on the street.

      The next song “Lifes a B****” might be one of the greatest hip hop songs ever. The lyrical truth Nas and featured artist AZ bring on this song are amazing.

      The Worlf is Yours ...


      • song which is a idea taken from the movie Scarface is used well. Halftime is a party starter and a lyrical truth in itself.

        Memory Lane takes Nas back in his past and gives his outlook of his past. This song takes alot of heart ot make in my opinion.

        the song One Love is the most touching song on this album in my opinion. It sends a letter from Nas to his friend in Prison and gives his friend the low down of what

        is going on in this street.

        The song Aint Hard to tell and Represent play their role uniquely. The last song on the album It Aint Hard to Tell is a true masterpiece.

        Its lyrical prowess is amazing. Overall this album is something that everyone can appreciate.

        This album gives you the pure life of a average man that lived on the mean streets of NY. Nas proves his potential to be a true story teller and creates arguably the greatest hip hop album of all time.
