Overview

Stillmatic marked Nas' reemergence atop of the rap scene, after many said his career was waning following his previous LP, Nastradamus (an album considered by critics and fans to have been the most mediocre album in his discography). The success of the album resurrected Nas' career, as he has since released several successful and critically acclaimed albums. Well received by critics, Stillmatic received 5 mics from The Source magazine–a distinction set aside only for classic hip-hop albums. It was also ranked 20th on Chris Rock's 2005 list for Rolling Stone on the Top 25 Hip-Hop Albums of all time.[1] Nastradamus is the title of Nas fourth studio album for the Columbia Records label, released in November 1999, and is also one of his aliases. ...

This article is about the magazine. ...


Stillmatic was one of the most highly anticipated hip-hop albums of the year, primarily due to the fallout from Nas's heated battle with rival Jay-Z. Jay-Z had previously dissed Nas in his single "Takeover", taken from his September 2001 release, The Blueprint. At the time, the song's hard-hitting caliber was such that the song could have potentially ended Nas' career. On the contrary, however, the track seems to have merely served to reinvigorate Nas, as he responded with his own diss track. On Stillmatic, Nas retaliated with the anticipated song, "Ether", a response to "Takeover" that insinuated that Jay-Z had bitten lyrics from The Notorious B.I.G. several times, that he had sold out, and that he was a misogynist, among other things. Several hip-hop aficionados believe Nas won the feud based on this track, which many felt was much more vicious and ruthless than "Takeover", although this is still a subject of debate within hip-hop circles. Jay-Z would respond with the radio freestyle "Supa Ugly", which was not as well received as "Takeover" or "Ether". Jay-Z (aka the Jigga, HOV and Hova, born Shawn Carter on December 4, 1970 in Brooklyn, New York) is an African American rapper/hip hop artist and record label executive; one of the most popular and successful rappers of the late 1990s and early 2000s. ...

The lead single from Stillmatic was "Got Ur Self A...", with a piano loop reminiscent of the music for a king's coronation and a sample from the well-known theme song of the HBO drama The Sopranos. The second single was "One Mic", which received acclaim for its content and video. Got Ur Self A... is a single by rapper Nas. ...

While widely-acclaimed in the hip-hop media, Stillmatic received more mediocre reviews from broader music review outlets such as Rolling Stone, Vibe, and All Music Guide.

It is also noted that this is the first album where Nas collaborates with Salaam Remi and the last where he collaborates with DJ Premier. However, this was by no means a sign of falling out between Nas and DJ Premier, as they reunited in 2007 for the remix of 'Classic' featuring Kanye West, KRS-One and Rakim.

The first pressing of Stillmatic featured "Braveheart Party", produced by Swizz Beatz and featuring Mary J. Blige and The Bravehearts, as track number eleven, between "The Flyest" and "Rule". "Braveheart Party" was removed from future pressings of the album as Blige stated that her vocals and the instrumental track were culled, without her permission, from unfinished recording sessions for her own album. As "Braveheart Party" was cited by many reviewers and fans as the weakest track on the LP, it was removed from the album without dispute.
