Cookin’ Soul have taken four songs from Nas‘ Illmatic and granted them some new soul filled production, and then placed them alongside ‘comments, feelings and experiences’ from everyone behind Illmatic. SoulMatic is a superb tribute to Nas‘ debut. Enjoy.
In 2014, 20 years after its release, Illmatic is still considered as arguably the best hip-hop album of all times.
Our intention when creating “Soulmatic” was not to just remix Illmatic album as such. Actually Soulmatic only contains 4 remixes from the original album… Also we have added a number of musical skits including comments, feelings and experiences from those who created the original album.
The “Cookin Soul” way to get the listener closer to that particular state of mind that led to the creation of such a classic.
