On This Day in Hip Hop History.....

Nas released his debut album, "Illmatic", 19 years ago!

Well, what more can I say about this album that I, and others, haven't already said? In my view, it's the greatest album of all time, as well as my #1 favorite album ever, so that covers A LOT of ground, yes indeed. I still remember how impressed I was when I first heard "The World Is Yours", as well as the rest of the album. I know his legend started with his memorable verse on Main Source's "Live At The BBQ", but my support truly started when I heard "The World Is Yours". It's still timeless and holds up exceedingly well today, and just a few more facts:

*I owned 2 versions of the cassette, as well as the cassette single of "The World Is Yours"
*Including the 10th Anniversary Platinum Edition, I bought this album 3 times
*My five favorite songs are "The World Is Yours", "Represent", "Halftime", "It Ain't Hard To Tell", and "One Love"

MANY thanks to Nas, the producers (Q-Tip, Large Pro, LES, DJ Premier, & Pete Rock), and Columbia Records for this CLASSIC. Salute!!!!!
