    Most of his albums are critically acclaimed, and have sold lot more. and Nas is widely considered one of the goats.

    I think this is how all artist are, and when I say artist im talking everything from music, art, literature, etc. when you have a body of work and people only know you for one project(book/album/piece of art, etc). It will bother you that the public does not spread the love to the rest of your work.

    Infsct that one popular work of yours will be more popular than you are as the artist.

    Two questions; were you into hip hop in 94 and where did you live?

    Listen to 36 Chambers then listen to the Wu albums that came after Illmatic.

    Fans beg & plead for a DJ Premier album but you give us a half ass Kanye West album recorded in Wyoming. Give us a Lost Tapes 2 album full of throwaway tracks. Damn right folks gonna celebrate Illmatic. Give the fans something new to rave about :manny:

    Some of the comments here are exactly what Nas is getting at.

    Illmatic will forever be one of the greatest albums ever made, but you're talking about the debut album of a man that has had a career spanning almost thirty years. He has other classic albums that don't get the same attention. People need to stop acting like that's the only good thing he ever did, or the only time his music was ever interesting or creative or meaningful.

    I’m from Detroit. Wu tang was everywhere in the city in 93. Illmatic didn’t have that impact

    put it like this.

    Illmatic = Deep Impact

    Ready to die=Armageddon
