Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Tech N9ne, Peter Rosenburg and many more talk to Google Play and reflect on Nas' iconic debut album Illmatic. Nas also adds his two cents in and discusses the inspiration behind the album and shares some great gems.

"I saw Sting years ago, we talked about working on something. And he had listened to Illmatic, and he said to him it was a jazz album," Nas remembers. "You always tend to learn something new about it each time you experience it."

Illmatic XX comes out next week on April 15.
