Nas - It Ain't Hard To Tell
Illmatic is a through-and-through, tried-and-true classic piece of hip-hop history. There isn't really a deep cut on the album due to its legendary status. However, it just wouldn't be right to do a #TBT list of Nasir Jones' work without including at least one cut off the album.
"It Ain't Hard To Tell" finished the album on a high-note. The Michael Jackson-sampling beat is amongst the best on the perfect album, and Nas' bars are hot fire.
