Both albums are = to me

But you can listen to Reasonable Doubt today, and catch a line or two that went over your head.

It was written because:
I peeped you frontin, I was in the Jeep
Sunk in the seat, tinted with heat, beats bumpin
Across the streat you was wildin
Talkin bout how you ran the Island in eighty-nine
Layin up, playin the yard with crazy shine
I c*cked a baby 9 that n*gga grave be mine, clanked him
What was he thinkin on my corner when it's pay me time
Dug em you owe me cousin somethin told me plug him...

Plus havoc went in on live n*gga rap:
Wannabe thug, get smacked for back talkin
QB represent f*** that, it can happen
While you rappin', I'm busy tryin' to sneak the gat in
Could tear men, cut the party while you jammin'
We think smarter, reach harder, got the 44
Bodyguard of somethin' you don't want a part of
If I was you, then I would do what I have to
But you ain't me, you hesitated so I clapped you
Then stepped off casually, naturally me

"This sh*t is wicked on these mean streets
None of my friends speak
We're all trying to win, but then again
Maybe it's for the best though, 'cause when they're seeing too much
You know they're trying to get you touched
Whoever said illegal was the easy way out couldn't understand the mechanics
And the workings of the underworld, granted
Nine to five is how to survive, I ain't trying to survive
I'm trying to live it to the limit and love it a lot
Life ills, poison my body
I used to say 'fu*k mic skills, ' and never prayed to God, I prayed to Gotti
That's right it's wicked, that's life I live it
Ain't asking for forgiveness for my sins, endz
I break bread with the late heads, picking their brains for angles on
all the evils that the game'll do
It gets dangerous, money and power is changing us
And now we're lethal, infected with D'Evils
We used to f!ght for building blocks
Now we f!ght for blocks with buildings that make a k!lling
The closest of friends when we first started
But grew apart as the money grew, and soon grew black-hearted
Thinking back when we first learned to use rubbers
He never learned so in turn I'm kidnapping his baby's mother
My hand around her collar, feeding her cheese
She said the taste of dollars was sh*tty so I fed her fifties
About his whereabouts I wasn't convinced
So I kept feeding her money 'til her sh*t started to make sense
Who could ever foresee, we used to stay up all night at slumber parties
now I'm trying to rock this bi*ch to sleep
All the years we were real close
Now I see his fears through her tears, know she's wishing we were still close
Don't cry, it is the (beat?)
In time, I'll take away your miseries and make 'em mine, D'Evils
My flesh, no n*gga could test
My soul is possessed by D'Evils in the form of diamonds and Lexus's
The exorcist, got me doing skits like Homie
You don't know me, but the whole world owe me strip!
Was thought to be a pleasant guy all my fu*king life
So now I'm down for whatever, ain't nothing nice
Throughout my junior high years it was all friendly
But now this higher learning got the Remy in me
Liquors invaded my kidneys
Got me ready to lick off, mama forgive me
I can't be held accountable, D'Evils beating me down, boo
Got me running with guys, making G's, telling lies that sound true
Come test me, I never cower
For the love of money, son, I'm giving lead showers
Stop screaming, you know the demon said it's best to die
And even if Jehovah witness, bet he'll never testify, D'Evils"

This seems like a better comparison than illmatic to RD since the themes of both these albums IWW and RD are the same, being a fly hustler and mafiso gangster rap

My two favorite albums from these artists and I never made that connection.
Think I just found a new playlist

When I was younger, I played RD more.

Now I play IWW more.

There's just some special about that album... From Nas' flow, to the production, to the overall mood the album...

IWW has more replay value as the years have gone on.

I was just about to ask what is on IWW thatís on this level? And I love both. But we gotta keep sh*t a buck in here.

Both are elite tier albums and you can't go wrong picking one over the other. However, the people saying one album 'washes' the other are being hyperbolic as fu*k.

That being said I prefer RD.
