More Info

Rap albums don't come more classic or undisputedly influential than this! Released in 1994, 'Illmatic' saw the then 20 year old MC document his upbringing in Queensbridge with gritty and startlingly poetic verses steeped in the bleak reality of ghetto life without losing hope or forgetting the good times. Backed with superb productions from Q-Tip, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, and Large Professor, who underpin their intricate, jazzy loops with appropriately tough beats.
