Nas' formerly know as nasty nas is one of the most political rappers of our time, in fact he is so politicly smart that he is talked about worldwide. his real name is Nasir jones, Nasir means protector of life in arabic' which his dad gave him because he new he would do great things, and well he did, like this album, illmatic was made in 1994 after him and his crew got shot up in queens bridge projects new york where nas was living at the time, but him and his freind lived but can't say the same thing for his other freinds tho, this album reflects on that part of his life.

Nowdays he is one of the top selling rappers of all time', this album is good for people who like listening to music that actually makes you think, unlike most rappers nowdays he does not glorify voilence' in fact he stands against it except for sometimes while listening to him you would think he does, but that's because he paint's mental pictures of the things that have happened in his life, some may even call him a mastermind and a poet at heart and threw lyrics.
