Nas - PreIllmatic (91-94) 30th Anniversary Cassette

Sold out

In early 2021 the Nas tribute mixtape ‘PreIllmatic (91-94)’ was released and the cassette version sold out quickly. Now by popular demand, and for the 30th Anniversary of one of the most important and influential debut albums ever, the tape has been reissued in very limited fashion.


Through thorough research this is probably the only correct pre-Illmatic mixtape out there. Many other tracks that had been included in other compilations have not really been recorded prior to Nas' debut album. 


This compilation includes Nas material recorded before the release of his first album and not included on it. From demos, collaborations, radio or concert recordings, freestyle sessions, unreleased tracks to original or alternative versions of tracks. The mixtape can be listened to on YouTube as well.


The cassette includes an eight-piece fold-out J-Card with information on all the tracks included in the compilation, the tape case is UV screen-printed with the best professional finishes thanks to the support of @tapes4us.records
