Nas Will Re-Release “Illmatic”

 

Personally, I don’t really know what to make of this decision by Nas. The good thing is that this re-release is going to contain never heard before stuff; material that’s new for us. And that’s cool. What am apprehensive about is the fact is that when artists begin to come up with such re-releases, it often indicates a slowdown of the creative process. But don’t really think that’ll be the case with Nas.

The CD set includes:

- 24k Audiophile Gold Disc CD with re-mastered audio, housed in a “Cherrywood Trophy Box” with gold plaque.
- Black 2-piece outer box with original ‘Nas’ promotional sticker exclusive to Get on Down.com Orders.
- 48 page full-color, hard cover liner notes book including extended artwork, full album lyrics and liner notes from The Source founder Jon Shecter.
- A reproduction of the original 1994 illmatic press release.
- Two 8 x10 glossy promo photo’s used in the illmatic campaign.
- Rare 1994 promotional poster with full album lyrics printed on the back.

The Vinyl set includes:

- Vinyl LP packaged with full lyric insert
- 48 page full-color, hard cover liner notes book including extended artwork, full album lyrics and liner notes from The Source founder Jon Shecter.
- A reproduction of the original 1994 illmatic press release
- Two 8 x10 glossy promo photo’s used in the illmatic campaign
- Rare 1994 promotional poster with full album lyrics printed on the back
