Earlier this year, Get On Down dropped the acclaimed Purple Tape boxset re-release of Raekwon's seminal Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... album. Now, in a recent release from Complex, details of the new Deluxe Gold Edition of Nas' Illmatic have come to light.
Beginning with its release this Sunday December 9, fans will be treated to both CD and vinyl versions of the limited edition boxset. A bundle featuring both the CD and vinyl sets will also be available for purchase.
The CD portion of the boxset will feature a completely remastered 24k Audiophile Gold Disc CD of Nas' breakthrough LP housed in a "Cherrywood Trophy Box." Additional materials in the set will include a 48 page hard cover book of Nas' lyrics, liner notes and other materials from the album, a reproduction of the album's press release, promo photos and a poster.
The vinyl LP version of the boxset will feature all of the aforementioned items in the CD release, but with a vinyl record instead of the remastered CD.
Fans looking to pick up with boxset can register over at Get On Down. Images of the set can be found below.
