Hear Nas' Unearthed Pre-'Illmatic' Demo Tape

Though Illmatic featured only one guest rapper (AZ's career-making verse on Life's a Bitch), his tape features contributions from a number of rap legends, including Biz Markie, MC Serch, and Kool G. Rap, plus Illmatic producer and Nas confidant Large Professor. But more importantly it shows exactly why Nas' debut album was maybe the most feverishly anticipated in the genre's history.

    Um yes,..listened to it again today between
    7:00 & 7:17, paused it for a while, then
    started back up again, I'm lovin how you can
    listen to 3-5 while the suns rising, and the air smells
    like it rained a day ago :-)
