One of the best lyricist but his beat selection is just horrible (with the exception of Illmatic)

nonetheless, his discography isn't the best, but Illmatic is one of the greatest albums, ever.

Most of the people that say that illmatic is the only good album of nas i'm pretty sure that you haven't listened to the rest of his albums, it was written is almost as good as illmatic, soul ultimate, stillmatic and i am are really good, and he dosnt even have one bad album in my opinion...
Any other rapper had ever done an album like illmatic, just with that he deserves at least a 9/10

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.
