Hip Hop advocate Dr. Michael Eric Dyson's upcoming book will be focusing on one of the illest albums to ever "Illmatic"

"Every song on Illmatic will be analyzed, interpreted and then re-articulated in a kind of intellectual sense from his own base in Hip Hop and we’re trying to deal with that seriously."

Illmatic dropped in 1994 and according to Amazon, Dyson's book, formerly titled Born To Use Mics: Reading Nas' Illmatic, is planned for January 2009 publication.
