Nas Shares His Thoughts On Recording A Follow-Up To 'Illmatic' (VIDEO)

As this April marks the 20th anniversary since the release of Nas’ timeless hip-hop classic, “Illmatic,” many fans have often wondered if the prolific MC will ever release a follow up to his 1994 debut.

And ironically, the 40-year-old New York native has also thought about the idea of blessing fans with an “Illmatic 2.”

“I definitely thought about that before,” he revealed while being honored during last weekend’s Vibe Impact Awards. “But it has to flow. It has to be natural… I can work on that, if I don’t like it I can scrap it. I have to feel it. It gotta be honest.”

Check out more of Nas’ thoughts on “Illmatic 2” in the clip below.
