Starting today, a special 20th anniversary edition of Nas' 1994 debut album, Illmatic, is available for purchase. Dubbed Illmatic XX, the deluxe reissue features remastered versions of the ten original tracks, as well as a second disc of remixes, previously unreleased demos and promotional singles. Those bonus selections include "It Ain't Hard to Tell (Stink Mix)," a 1993 freestyle from The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show, and "I'm a Villain," which is said to be an early version of "N.Y. State of Mind." Choice cuts from Illmatic XX are available to stream below, while the album can be purchased now through iTunes.
