Saturday marks the 20th anniversary of Nas' classic Illmatic, and the Queensbridge rapper has been everywhere honoring the record that put him on the map, releasing IllmaticXX, performing the album in its entirety at Coachella, and popping up to perform it again at last night's premiere of the Time Is Illmatic documentary. But with so much press surrounding Queens' finest, XXL is taking a different track today; we've asked eight rising New York rappers about Illmatic, their reactions to it and how it affected their lives.

From fellow Queens rappers Action Bronson and Chinx to Harlem's own Bodega Bamz, here are their stories. —XXL Staff
