Nas talks "Illmatic 2"

First off, let me say that if Nas does decide to record an "Illmatic 2", the amount of emotion would be epic!
"Illmatic" is considered one of the greatest hip-hop albums...of ALL TIME!
To fathom the thought of a part two is both exciting and nerve racking. Exciting because it's Nas; also because its part two of what some consider a sacred document of hip-hop. Which, for the same reason is why I consider it to be nerve racking. Now, I have no doubt in Nas's ability to make another hit album. After all, his last album was ALL THAT. I still find myslef re-running "Cherry Wine", "Accident Murderers", hell, the whole album (LOL). But to sequal such a work of art is a big task to take on.

Vibe asked Nas if he considered the making of Part 2 and he had this to say:
"Yes and no, I've thought about it before . . . I definitely though about that. It just has to flow, it has to be natural. I can work on that and if I don't like it just scrap it."

I can definitely both feel and appreciate Nas's point. Who want's a rushed masterpiece. This is what Nas has the ability to put out, another masterpiece. He's aging (gracefully I must add). Has he lost his touch? Has he lost his gull ability to put out what we want and need to hear tastfully? Only time will tell.

Anywho, check out his interview with Vibe about further feelings on moving forward with the project or leaving it to be a thought fans fantasize about.
