From Strangel 11/21/2016 04:03
As a rule, I'm not greatly moved by rap music, but I've always respected the integrity of the grittier roots of the sub-cultural poetry used as a language against oppression. Every now and then I'd come across a song that made me nod in respect but rarely was I inspired to purchase a full album.

This site directed me to Illmatic as I wanted to listen to some of the higher rated rap albums in their entirety. So far this album has impressed me the most of any I have listened to as it feels 'real' (if that makes any sense). So much of what you hear in rap music sounds fabricated but Nas had a 'real' need to express himself in Illmatic, and I think that there is a 'real' street poetry that provides this cathartic release.

Brilliant debut and not bad follow up but then it all goes downhill It's a shame and annoying that he started so well and then gave up!

Illmatic will always be a masterpiece of such importance for music itself that it can't be overrated, so many good beats and lyrics... It was written is also a pretty solid album from start to end but the rest... Man saying that it is disappointing it's putting it mildly.

Sorry that you find it rubbish. Your loss - Illmatic is brilliant hip-hop that influenced so many others.
