He said, "Nas what the fans want is Illmatic, Stillmatic"
Critical consensus is that Nas will never be able to write a record as good as Illmatic — it is unlikely he will be able to meld that album’s advanced production (since then Nas has had a mostly tin ear for beats), poetic lyrics (hard to recapture that place once you experience fame), and advanced lyrical technique which he succeeded in getting back, hence he says also Stillmatic, his universally acclaimed follow-up.
A lot people think though that Illmatic is also a curse since everything is weighted up against it. Note that it´s probably the most mentioned hip-hop album in the greatest album of all-time conversation, so nobody/very few weight-up against it.
