In a way it’s become the de facto blueprint not for just rap but pop music in general, started with Speaker Knockers and just Chicago to influencing the swath of almost every single young artist post 2012.



It’s will probably extend even beyond rap with pop artists like Billie Eillish’s WWAFAWDWG, Post Malone, and Charli XCX

I wanted to make a joke about how disrespectful OP was for comparing Finally Rich to trash, but Illmatic is so fucking good and important to the culture that I can’t, even for the shambles

In terms of influence I think it’s comparable when you look at how Keef shifted the sound in hip hop and compare it to how Nas changed the sound in his era. Illmatic is leagues above Finally Rich if we are talking quality tho lol
