Here’s a great interview of Nas where he recounts a lot of behind the scenes stories on the making of Illmatic. He talks about the heavy influence of DJ Premier, working with Q-Tip and his life circumstances during the making of what was to become one of the greatest albums of all time.

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home, but we need your help to make it great. Please subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.
