From Illmatic beginnings...we got the demo tape, the first 5-mic album, the 10th anniversary, and the remixes. And STILL, not all of his tracks have been legitimately released. Just keep in mind when next time someone ask you what "Illmatic" is, reply with "time" because "time IS illmatic, keep static like wool fabric. Pack a 4-matic to crack your whole cabbage." - life's a bitch, who's nice as this? we righteousness, but god forbid the bitch divorce me...I'll be flooded with ice so hell-fire wont scorch me...haaa, I'm out

Demo Tape before Illmatic

If Nas released ANY of his unreleased verses from his demo tape today, it will be critically acclaimed with great reception in the hip hop community

It was a test pressing so the record skipped and Nas sonned me. He told me, "you better get it on time, kid." I was mortified" - Ego Trip's Big Book of Rap Lists (1998) <- great book
