This Saturday (April 19), marks the official 20th anniversary of Nas’ classic debut, Illmatic. For the past two decades, the Queensbridge rapper’s LP has remained in the top 5 list of “best rap albums” of all time. The trends and fashion may have changed in hip-hop, but this album hasn’t gone anywhere.
In its honor, VIBE and Jungle went back to the very projects that raised Nas for a first hand tour of the hood. Little did we know that our journey would take us to the very apartment that started it all for Jungle and his older brother. This is the very first tour of apartment 5D aka Nas’ childhood home.
