Happy 20th Birthday to the undisputed classic Hip-Hop album 'ILLMATIC'! If you’re a true fan of rap/hip-hop then you already have this album in your arsenal. If you don’t, be sure to head over to iTunes to purchase the re-release ‘Illmatic XX’ NOW! Nas is such a great street poet and he showcases it most on this album. With production from Q-Tip, Pete Rock, DJ Premier and Large Professor your ears are taken on a fantastic voyage through Queens … painting a picture of the ghetto life and how he maneuvered through it. I love that the picture isn’t completely dark, Nasir gives you a brighter side as well and motivates you with lyrics such as "I never sleep, cause sleep is the cousin of death" on ‘N.Y. State of Mind’. To this day, that bar excites me & motivates me to be relentless in my field of Music. Another favorite is "I’m out for dead presidents to represent me"from “The World Is Yours” track.
Bottomline, this was one of the best 90’s rap albums; one of the best rap albums period, in my opinion!
What a huge opening weekend for Lionsgate! They now ‘have a trio of young-adult franchises.’ The others being ‘Twilight’ and ‘The Hunger Games’.
Teen science-fiction thrillers seem to be dominating the box office and ‘Divergent’ proved that. The reign won’t let up! The film, starring Shailene Woodley, did bring in a little less than anticipated, but to say that it’s Lionsgates third franchise offering a huge success is nothing to frown at!
Be sure to check the film out if you haven’t already and visit the source for more stats!
