So after MMLP2 got me interested in rap again (yes, I know, I'm a faggot etc.), I started listening to illmatic, since everyone keeps jizzing all over it. I really dig the jazzy/loungy sound of it. It's not exactly Miles Davis, but the production appeals a lot more to me than most modern stuff.

Where should I go from here?

MMLP2 was awful. I think that album would turn me off from Rap.  Tongue

It was mainly Rhyme or Reason and Rap God that stuck, but still. I realise it's not a "rapper's rap album" in that sense.

That's a pretty sizeable list. What would be the closest to early Nas?

In terms of sound?

I'd say Black Milk or The Roots

Hard to say since Illmatic was kind of a one of a kind record.  Tongue

Are you serious? Tribe's the only pure recommendation for the original request. Some good stuff that's either not a good fit or too large a discography to select from that doesn't fit/isn't good, and a buncha other shit that just sucks lol

Gang Starr up to and especially including Moment of Truth, mid to late Geto Boys, the first two Pharcyde albums, first two Souls of Mischief albums, first three Tupac albums....

Also if you really like Illmatic check out Elzi's album Elmatic
