    Lol its so weird, cuz 5 minutes ago i was listening to Life’s a bitch and I was like “why hasn’t this dude re released a better quality of the album”. Then i read this. Good stuff Nas.

  • SayItAin’tSo

    Definitlly a good look! It’s classic, period! So why not give it a little classic make over. Re-mastered is where it’s at, tho! Can’t wait to put that in the whip. Copping’ this for sure!

  • R

    No Doubt the best Classic Hiphop album ever. He must be broke because they rerelease these type of things when stars die.

  • Yeezus Christ

  • NY-Kidd

    Nas one of the best

  • DoinTooMuch

    I’m probably one of the few who thinks this isn’t even his best overall album. It was written is better in my opinion.

  • Slim Don

    Nice shit nasty…..@pone that Je5us Piece lp is fukin awsome give it time it will be his 4 classic Doc,DA,LAx & JP i like red alot sum songs were classic like the city and that shit wit ofwg and rick but not the album still good he stays making heat dec 11 im going to best buy!

  • Blak c/o

    How dare you call a classic album such as “Illmatic” overated and that 50, first is better. Even 50 off the record will tell you to kill yourself. Not taking nothing away from 50 first album though. Can’t wait to hear what you have to say when 50 first album is 18 yrs old and boxed set yet alone irrelevant.

  • slaughter

    were can i get this, anyone know?

  • http://jdareal.com sway-z

    I know a lot of niggas don’t agree because Illmatic is a more traditional “hip hop” sound but IWW is a better overall album, that’s just me.

    Illmatic might have my two favorite Nas songs (World is Yours, Memory Lane) but I also don’t go wild over Halftime or One Time for Your mind like that.

    On the other hand, as a body of work, there ain’t one song on IWW that don’t fit or flow right, that shit is flawless, they need to re-release that and give it the respect it deserves…

  • RisRobot

    “I had the Illmatic on bootleg”
