Imagine That

Nas followed up with 1996's It Was Written, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard. Though the album's crossover aspirations and pink-suited Mafioso imagery were bound to disappoint fans who wanted another Illmatic, it's aged well, with bangers including "If I Ruled the World" featuring Lauryn Hill, "I Gave You Power" and "Street Dreams" (shown above).
