Time To Get Manly 9: Nas - Illmatic

I randomly ran across a list of what Esquire magazine claims are "The 75 Albums Every Man Should Own." In this series of posts, I'll explore these manly, manly sounds.

Nas - Illmatic

When I worked at Media Play right after college, there were two women I worked with who would frequently "fight" over Nas. The conversation usually revolved around which one could claim Nas as "their husband." I am pretty sure Nas was not consulted on this, but I'm guessing he could have settled the matter pretty quickly, and that both women would have been disappointed. And single. This record has lots of f-bombs, which automatically equals manliness, right?
