The coverage for Nas‘ Illmatic XX has been pretty widespread (and well deserved), and now it continues with the re-release of the legendary LP that dropped 20 years ago. The two-disc LP consists of the original album (which has been praised and heralded as a classic) along with a second disc that features bonus tracks and unreleased freestyles.
The stream of Illmatic XX is now available on Spotify, minus the tracks “I’m A Villain” and a ’93 freestyle from The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show. Take a listen to the iconic LP below and make sure to purchase a copy, available now via iTunes.
