Nas – illmatic: Live From The Kennedy Center with The National Symphony Orchestra [PACKAGE REVEAL]

What was I thinking?” Nas reflected as he stepped on stage at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.—a long way from the Queensbridge housing projects where his story began. Nas was in D.C. to perform his classic debut album ‘Illmatic’ accompanied by the National Symphony Orchestra. “I was just trying to get in the rap game. The incredible rap game.” Now, 24 years after Illmatic’s release, Mass Appeal Records presents ‘Illmatic: Live from the Kennedy Center’ on digital and limited edition double vinyl. “It was all a dream. It’s time. And when that time came, I took it.” Take that.
