I made this for Grantland. It’s an Illmatic Influence Infographic. I made it because Saturday is the 20th anniversary of Illmatic, if you can even believe that. It shows the names and number of songs that have sampled each particular track from Illmatic. It’s thorough. I think if you click on it it’ll get bigger. You can read about the methodology and whatnot here, where they definitely have a big version of it. Listen to this while you peruse the chart.

Bun B’s Rap Coloring and Activity Book is in stores now. Please go buy one. It’s the… wait for it… waaaiiiit… not quite… aaaaaand… malibooyah! It’s the ill thing to do. Thank you, thank you.

happy 20th birthday to one of the greatest hip hop albums of all time

can you tell me what to feel, open up yr tender soul, can i drink yr drunken mercy, wine burns the devils hole

so embryonic it’s alright

when the space ship beams you up boy, get drunk fast

oh i’d rather go and journey, where the diamond crest is flowing and run across the valley, beneath the sacred mountain and wander through the forest, where the the trees have leaves of prisms and break the light in colors that no one knows the names of, and when it’s time i’ll go and wait beside a legendary fountain, till i see your form reflected in it’s clear and jewelled waters, and if you think i’m ready, you may lead me to the chasm where the rivers of our vision, flow into one another, i will want to die beneath the white cascading waters, she may beg, she may plead, she may argue with her logic, and then she’ll know the things i learned, that really have no value in the end she will surely know, i wasn’t born to follow

skinny steen … i really have lost almost 30 lbz

your makers must have kissed in cosmic dust
