Nas is celebrating the 20th anniversary of his debut album Illmatic by releasing a special double-disc edition of the record. 

Arriving April 15th, Illmatic XX will feature not only the original ten tracks, but also previously unreleased remixes, demos and freestyles. 

Apart from the re-release of Illmatic, Nas will hit the road across the U.S. in celebration of the milestone.  While specific dates have yet to be announced, the tour will include performances at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts as well as the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. 

The emcee is also planning to release a documentary about the seminal album.  Illmatic XX is already available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon.
