    I agree with him. IWW didn’t get the celebration it deserves because c*nts are too focused on Illmatic. I love that album too but it’s had its time to shine. It got 10 year anniversary and now for at least the last 5-7 years it’s been the lead up to 20 and then 20 and it’s been the 20/25 celebration ever since. Constant touring, performing, the orchestral version, the documentary. there’s nothing left to milk from Illmatic.

    It feels like Nas has been celebrating Illmatic every year. He has so many classic songs on his other albums. Spread the love around.

    Nas' Illmatic was a complete shift in the quality of Hip-Hop. It set a brand new bar that most artists even with their best effort could not dream of getting close to. And looking back over the decades since.. Nas can count himself with those artists who could not ever reach that bar.

    Yes, he had some great songs since - Ether being one that comes to mind as one of the harshest disses of all time and many more great SONGS - BUT he has only 1 album that took our culture and music as a whole to a totally different level and it's: Illmatic. And I was a huge west coast Hip-Hop fan at the time of the release, but NOBODY not a single listener could deny the genius of Illmatic. He simply never had that hunger again.

    I'm just going to go ahead and assume what you wrote is sarcasm breh

    EDIT: IWW was fire. But there are many fire albums. Some people would say French Montana's first album was fire. Or a random Rick Ross album is fire. But CLASSIC? Nah. Illmatic is a classic. Doggystyle is a classic. The Chronic. All Eyez On Me. Enter The 36 Chambers. Ready To Die. Reasonable Doubt. I'd even go so far as to say Get Rich Or Die Tryin' is a classic, but the least classic of this list. IWW is not any of those albums brehs, whether this hurts your feelings or not - it is what it is. Nobody can say IWW is equal to The Chronic or Enter The 36 Chambers, ever.

    I couldn't imagine being 46 and people only wanted to talk about something I did when I was 21.
