I made this for Grantland. It’s an Illmatic Influence Infographic. I made it because Saturday is the 20th anniversary of Illmatic, if you can even believe that. It shows the names and number of songs that have sampled each particular track from Illmatic. It’s thorough. I think if you click on it it’ll get bigger. You can read about the methodology and whatnot here, where they definitely have a big version of it. Listen to this while you peruse the chart.
