Nas has announced that his seminal debut album, Illmatic, released as a special 20th Anniversary Edition, titled Illmatic XX, by SONY Legacy. This exclusive collection will feature several rare remixes, unreleased demos and freestyles to commemorate the anniversary. Nas has also announced that he will be touring the U.S. and performing the groundbreaking Illmatic from front to back to celebrate the release. The tour will kick off with special performances this spring at both the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as well as this year’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.

Illmatic debuted in 1994 at #12 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling 59,000 copies in its first week. It received rave reviews from critics and would eventually go on to achieve platinum certification by the RIAA in 2001. It has since been widely recognized by music critics as a landmark album in East Coast hip hop and remains one of the best hip-hop albums ever made.

“With Illmatic, I didn't think about it. I just did it. I believe everybody has good instincts. Now I’m a man from that past and I'm supremely grateful. There's a Nigerian proverb ‘What is past is prologue’. I'm here today because of Illmatic.” - Nas
