Win a Copy of Nas’ ‘Illmatic XX’ on Vinyl or CD
Nas has long-been a respected force in the rap game. This month, fans celebrate the MC’s debut body of work, ‘Illmatic,’ as the project turns 20. To honor the LP’s anniversary, Sony’s Legacy Recordings released a special 20th anniversary edition, ‘Illmatic XX,’ out April 15. If you can’t grab your copy now, The Boombox is giving you a chance to win the legendary album.
Legacy Recordings and The Boombox are giving away five copies of the double disc album and one lucky winner will receive the LP on vinyl. The album retails for $14 while the vinyl will cost you $23, which is cash you could put toward tickets to one of Nas’ shows this year. There’s nothing better than hearing the rapper perform the entire album live.
The double-CD collection features 10 tracks from the original album and 10 additional songs of unreleased demos, remixes and freestyles. ‘One Love (LG Main Mix),’ ‘Life’s A Bitch (Arsenal Mix)’ and ‘I’m A Villain’ are some of the songs featured on the set.
In addition to the 20th anniversary effort, Nas will tour this year to perform the seminal album in its entirety. The Queens, N.Y., MC has already performed ‘Illmatic’ at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival this month.
