During the Freshman 10 for ‘10 cover shoot XXLMag.com spoke to the 20-year old MC about the concept behind the disc. “The idea was birthed out of my album, [Boy Meets World],” he explained. “My album was getting a lot of comparison’s to Nas’s first album… So I threw the idea out there, like what if I redid Illmatic …will people still say I sound like Nasir…or will they just trash the whole [notion]?”
… Ode to Illmatic will be hosted by DJ Green Lantern and features only one guest appearance by Kweli.
