Hip Hop DX reports, this anniversary edition is set to include unreleased remixes to the original cuts on the album, along with unreleased versions of “I’m a Villain”.” The anniversary edition of Illmatic also includes the 10 original tracks from the album.
“It’s nine songs on there,” he said at the time. “The intro makes it ten but it’s only nine songs. I think it’s a perfect record. It’s a perfect record. I couldn’t say that before, but there are so many different dynamics to it.”
