HIPHOPDX | Top 7 Ways Nas’ “Illmatic” Shaped His Legacy

Nas

Green Label compiles a list of “Illmatic: 20 Years Later.”

On the heels of the 20-year anniversary of Nas’ Illmatic, Green Label has compiled a list of “Illmatic: 20 Years Later.”

The site says the list is “a look at the album’s inception, its qualities and how it helped shape Nas’ immense legacy.”

One way in which Nas’ Illmatic helped shape the Queensbridge rapper’s legacy was by “Living Up To The Hype.”

“Nas was one of the most hyped artists in Hip Hop history by the time the album dropped,” the Green Label item says. “Backed by major Hip Hop producers like Large Professor, Nas had connections to some of the most respected Hip Hop circles in New York. Additionally, he generated major buzz via his star turn on Main Source’s ‘Live at the Barbecue.’”

To see the full list of “Illmatic: 20 Years Later,” please visit Green Label.
