Wrestler(s) Referenced: Iron Sheik
Lyric: "Vocabulary spills I'm Ill plus Matic/I freak beats, slam it like Iron Sheik/Jam like a Tec with correct techniques"
Anyone can tell you that Illmatic is a classic without a second guess. Flow, lyrics, depth, production. Everything was there. "It Ain't Hard to Tell" was the camel clutch the album needed to put the competition down for the count for nearly 20 years.
