Stream Nas’ 20th Anniversary Reissue of ‘Illmatic’

    As Nas’ seminal album Illmatic reaches its 20th anniversary, the Queens rapper has made the reissue available to stream. The stream includes a remastered version of the original album, rare remixes, an unreleased song “I’m a Villain,” and a freestyle on the Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show from ’93. 

    To accompany the album, a documentary will be released later this year titled “Time is Illmatic,”: a film that “delves into the making of Illmatic; the social conditions that created it; and the music legacy passed down from Nas’ Mississippi-born father and celebrated jazz musician, Olu Dara.” Stream Illmatic here and watch Nas perform with Jay Z and Diddy at Coachella below.
