Nas speechless over Illmatic induction.

Nas Is Finally Winning

At the time of its release in 1994, Illmatic was celebrated for its originality and impact on the music industry, so much so that it’s been copied by others and considered highly influential as a project ever since.

Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones — “Nas” — released his groundbreaking studio debut in 1994. Critics quickly extoled it for its rhythmic originality and its realistic yet fresh take on life in the Queensbridge projects. Characterized by the masterful use of multi-syllabic and internal rhyme, surprising line breaks, and rhythmic complexity, the album’s technique has been widely copied and proven broadly influential.

The legendary album features handfuls of classics including Nasty Nas’ unforgettable “It Ain’t Hard To Tell” single.
