Illmatic, incontrovertibly one of the best hip hop albums of all time, MIGHT have a sequel.
We’re definitely not making this up. The man himself, Nas, revealed in an interview with Vibe magazine that he’s considering making Illmatic 2.
“I thought about it before”, Nas tells the magazine, “I definitely thought about that, but it has to flow. It has to be natural. I can work on that and then if I don’t like it, I’ma scrap it.
He added, “I have to feel it, man. It got to be honest.” We most certainly hope plans of making this follow up album will come to fruition.
The news of Illmatic 2 comes fresh off the 40 year old’s live performance at Beats Music Grammy party. Setting the spark alight for the Grammy awards, Nas joined the likes of Eminem, Dre, Diddy and Macklemore at the Belasco Theater where they all performed their biggest hit.
Let’s hope Nasir Jones scoops a Grammy for Illmatic 2 should it ever drop. Too many of our brothers have been robbed out of their deserved accolade and Nas is one of the best that ever did it!
