Like I always say, if someone came to me and said "put me on to this hip hop music." The first album I would give them is Illmatic.

The perfect final

probably the two most 90's albums with substance, that evaluate the mind state of both men

Nas managed to create a underground classic

Pac managed to tread the fine line of commercial rap and underground rap and kept his authenticity

I own two copies of illmatic, I own a copy of MATW

Personally I tend to listen to MATW more, hits my soul just a little deeper

Both beautiful albums nevertheless.

Can't be mad at either one winning

Illmatic is dope, one of my favorite albums but matw just feels more complete, more emotion, deeper songs. Put it like this, it's like comparing 1999 to section 80, yeah 1999 is dope and not many skips but section 80 goes into deeper subjects than 1999 even though there are some skippables ie: Tammy's song and Can you get away. I'm not saying 1999 is even comparable to illmatic, just using it to make my point

Me against the world 100%

With all this extra stressin
The question I wonder is after death, after my last breath
When will I finally get to rest? Through this supression
They punish the people that's askin questions
And those that possess, steal from the ones without possessions
The message I stress: to make it stop study your lessons
Don't settle for less - even a genius asks-es questions
Be grateful for blessings
Don't ever change, keep your essence
The power is in the people and politics we address
Always do your best, don't let the pressure make you panic
And when you get stranded
And things don't go the way you planned it
Dreamin of riches, in a position of makin a difference
Politicians and hypocrites, they don't wanna listen
If I'm insane, it's the fame made a brother change
It wasn't nuttin like the game
It's just me against the world

if I had to choose one rap song Dear Mamma to me is the greatest rap song ever laid down

maybe it's because i luv mommy, so it hits my soul

when my aunt died that song got me by, had tears in my eyes forreal,

amazing song, words cant truly express how much I appreciate that song

where were all these nas stans when illmatic dropped? album took 10 years to go platinum
no goat album will take that long to sell 1 mill copies , me against the world is just on another level its a way better hip hop album overall then illmatic , only east coast stans will say illmatic is better knowing damn well they weren't fu*king with that album when it dropped .

so u got a jay stan, a known pac d*ck rida that b makin multiple accounts just to hate on the n*gga (Eagles all day, abstract), n a n*gga that write in pink font that stan every soul that ever came from new york hatin on the don

MATW sh*ts on Illmatic musically no question, illmatic was jus better lyrically but MATW had more timeless songs n was a better overall album.

time to face the facts fu*kboys...Pac ashes are formin back together to laugh at the entourage of internet pus*y on his d*ck

the consensus goat...remember that. n yall gon have to take it to the grave.
