‘The Sciences’: Sleep’s First Album in 20 Years
‘Illmatic: Live from the Kennedy Center’ Released (Audio)
Four years ago, rapper Nas performed his classic record Illmatic at the Kennedy Center in New York to celebrate the album’s 20th anniversary. It’s taken a while, but now Illmatic: Live from the Kennedy Center is getting a special edition vinyl release, as well as a free SoundCloud stream from Mass Appeal Records.
Illmatic: Live from the Kennedy Center dropped to record stores on Record Store Day over the weekend, with plenty of special features:
“Gold embossed gatefold jacket with 2XLP heavyweight vinyl in gold embossed euro sleeves, plus 24×36” 2-sided poster, booklet with exclusive photos, and download card.”
Listed as “an exclusive vinyl release for Record Store Day 2018,” Illmatic: Live from the Kennedy Center is nevertheless still available as this writing from the Mass Appeal online store here, where copies are priced at a little bit under $33. Of course, you can also listen to the whole show below, for free.
