Believe it or not, Nas will be celebrating 20 years since the release of his 1994 debut album Illmatic this year. He reflected on the past two decades of his career.


Speaking with Revolt TV "I didn't want to be around this long in the game, to tell you the truth," Nas said. "I was just happy to get a voice in. So, just being happy to get your voice, anybody out there who's working on their first album or who's only made one album, just think about 20 years from now, it's gonna be a great feeling." 


Now 20 years deep in the industry, Nas announced IllmaticXX, a twentieth anniversary edition of his debut album. Nas also recently announced that he is set to perform Illmatic in its entirety at Coachella. Meanwhile, a film about the making of Illmatic, Time Is Illmatic, is set to be released this year as well.
