Get a dose of hip hop history 20 years later with Tech N9ne, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q and of course the man responsible for creating one of most legendary albums of all time.
In celebration of the upcoming 20th anniversary of Nas’s hip hop masterpiece Illmatic, Google Play has assembled some of the finest emcees in the game to talk about this groundbreaking record.
Of course when you want an emcee with great understanding of flow, content and originality, you have to hit up Tech N9ne to get his thoughts on one of the greatest hip hop albums (fuck it, just albums) of all time.
Tech talks about Nas’ longevity, his still-relevant presence in hip hop and how the Illmatic cover has inspired many (including Tech himself) to put baby pictures on their album covers (see Tech N9ne’s Vintage Tech).
