5.0 out of 5 stars Illmatic is straight ILL..., July 18 2004
This review is from: Illmatic (Audio CD)
This album has got to be the best I have ever heard. There are no tracks on this album that should be skipped. I have listened to a lot of albums over the last couple years and nothing comes close to this. I would have to say that Big L - Lifestylez Ov Da Poor And Dangerous, Jay-Z - Reasonable Doubt, Tupac - All Eyez On Me, and Notorious B.I.G. - Ready To Die come close to this album but none of them are better. Nas' story telling ability alone sets him apart from other rappers. When he raps you almost feel that you are a part of what he is spitting. Also, he almost always has a positive message in his songs and to me that counts for a lot. Now-a-days almost every rapper out there is rapping about cars, money and girls just to sell records but it seems that Nas doesn't care about how much he sells he just wants to put out music that almost all people can relate to. Make sure you pick up Street Disciple when it hits the stores September 24/04.....ONE LOVE
