Every song on this album matters.

From Premier's masterful N.Y State Of Mind to the AZ assisted Life's A Bitch and Pete Rock's piano laced The World Is Yours, Illmatic starts out with powerful trio of songs that easily could solidify this album as classic if it stopped right there. Other tracks such as Memory Lane and One Love show Nas focusing on his neighborhood and local legends that really molded him into the person he was which made them all just as important to us. Large Professor delivers the albums first single It Ain't Hard To Tell while Premier delivers the albums certified street anthem Represent.
