My #1 album that help shaped my first 30 years of my life is @nasnyc first album Illmatic , ( I’m gonna be talking for a while so bare with me).

Whether it was N.Y. State of mind , I never sleep cause sleep is the cousin or death.
Halftime: you couldn’t catch me in the streets without a ton of reefa that’s like Malcolm X catchin a jungle fever.
Before this album I was a Kriss Kross and Another Bad Creations (ABC) Fan after Kurt Cobain died I needed another hero Here comes this young black man that I can relate 2 with the wordplay of a Egyptian philosopher, I remember I first heard this album when I was 10 years old when this drug dealer on my block kept singing Life’s a bitch ( True Story) when I asked him why he kept on saying that he said To me ( D murder which was the name he called me ) Cause you never know when you gonna go , In hindsight now that I look back I guess I know why that song meant so much to him especially dealing with the life he was living, Since that day I was hook on Nasir Jones music , Us fans of Nas need to realize there will never be another Illmatic I repeat never. The first time multiple producers was on one album ( Some of the greats 2 Q tip , Dj premier , Pete Rock) Words can’t express how much I appreciate and love this album, Till my dying day I will always say this 2pac is the most important Rapper ever ( He was bigger than rap) Jay-z is the most consistent rapper ever , @mr_camron is my favorite rapper , But the best rapper of all time comes from queensbridge with a chip tooth smile and of course N.A.S. are the letters that spell @nasnyc .
