    Nas probably forgot he made a part 2. He likely hasn’t recited a line from that song since 1999 :heh:

    It’s also a damn shame IWW didn’t get any 20 year anniversary love. I have a feeling Stillmatic will after next year tho

    Man you can't tell New Yorkers that ...its their Bible....where I'm from NOBODY gave two shyts about that album at the time and it certainly didn't influence Texas, the West Coast, or the South in general.... It's been time to put that album to bed

    I understand what Nas is saying but I kinda hate that he said it. Illmatic FOREVER fukk you Nas!!! It is his best work and the foundation of the respect he gets in hip hop. I know IWW is a great album but it is not a classic. The Coli is really the only place where I have seen people refer to it as a classic.

    Yeah Illmatic is 25 years old but so what? Age means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to me when it comes to great music.

    We gonna stop celebrating Thriller? We gonna stop celebrating What's Going On? No.

    rakim has 2 or 3 albums that get celebrated.

    slick rick kinda had a separate legacy before he went solo, as part of the get fresh crew.



    theres been pushes to overhype the legacies of "it was written" and …….gasp...…..Belly.

    Its never going away. Its better that Nas makes his peace with that album constantly being brought up than expecting anything different.

    That being said, It Was Written is also a special album that deserves as much praise.

    Exactly....actually illmatic has become an easy go to for fake culture vultures to claim love for and get a pass. I love illmatic but IWW is just as good but has to live in the shadow because of fake purists :stopitslime:
