Perhaps, but the rap game would quite different (for the worse) had Illmatic not dropped when it did.

Also, you could say that about many of the early influential rap albums, so I’m not understanding your point, sweet-cakes.

It would still be a great album, but what makes you think that Nas would release that kind of album now ?
He made Illmatic for 1994.
Album for 2013. wouldn’t be the same…

I grew up on a farm. I have seen animals having sex in every position imaginable. Goat on chicken. Chicken on goat. Couple of chickens doing a goat, couple of pigs watching.

LOL. If Illmatic dropped today, one word… odd.
The sound would sound like it’s from another time. Would be a little awkward.
