MATW has more substance and addresses social issues but Illmatic is way more lyrical and the flow is dope. Every track on Illmatic is just perfect in my opinion, MATW is a classic too but Nas' lyrical ability and flow just outweighs it.

Some of the albums on the list shouldn't have been there Rhythmalism wasn't DJ Quik's best album by far.

Mobstability wasn't all that, there were many other midwest albums better than it.

nas is my fav rapper of all time.. i voted for illmatic.. nas from a technical standpoint is years ahead of pac

that being said.. 2pac's music will be relevant for far longer than Nas' music. That's how powerful 2pac's voice and message were.. the way he delivered his sh*t you could just feel every emotion with him.
