illmatic

adjective; blending and clipping
Cool, nice, impressive. Synonymous with cool, nice, impressive. Used in the same way the slang term ILL would be used. Its earliest known usage was as an album title by hip-hop artist Nas in 1994. For the album, it was probably used because the suffix -MATIC from AUTOMATIC was apparently used as a sort of trademark term by one of the album’s producers, DJ Premier.
