Illmatic is the debut album by Nas, released on April 19, 1994, through Columbia Records. View the liner notes here and our breakdown of the album cover and track list here.
Nas went Inside the Lines with Rap Genius and revealed that “illmatic” was Queensbridge slang for something that was the absolute illest, and that it was also a reference to someone from his block called Illmatic Ice.

Other MCs were tougher and better armed, but no one verbally photographed the dark menace of life on the streets quite like this 20-year-old from New York’s Queensbridge projects. With lines like “I never sleep, ‘cause sleep is the cousin of death”, Nas showed more poetic style on this record than any MC since Rakim.
