Ready to Die vs Me Against the World: Which one u like more?
 

 
I've always felt that Me Against the World (released 1995) was Pacs best album and Ready to Die (released 1994)was Biggies best album. These albums showcased them at their peak imo. What album do ya'll like more? Vote for the one u like more...post something aswell...

I love both these albums. Biggie's Ready to Die is filled with rich storytelling from "Gimme the Loot" to "Warning" to "Suicidal Thoughts" and it's one of the most consistant theme albums ever. But at the end, I gotta ride with Pac's Me Against the World. That album is rap-poetry at it's best. "So many Tears", "Lord Knows", "f**k the World", "It ain't easy", "Outlaw" and "death Around the Corner" are timeless. Pac's emotions are felt from the first song to the last. He gives it to you rather sad or mad. This is Pac doing what he does best...pouring it out...and he delivers on every track with heartfelt consistancy.

the tie breaker for me is the production. Ready to Die gets my vote
The tie breaker for me was when I compared what I felt were the three best songs on each album. "So Many Tears", "Dear Mama" and and number songs that can be placed in that third spot outdue any combination of three from Ready to Die imo. It's a tough comparison overall tho.

IMO, Me Against the World is the best album I"VE ever heard, and i heard Ready to Die. Which i think is a tad bit overrated

Me Against The World.

"Everyday Struggle" is probably the only track from Ready To Die I can listen to. I guess it's all about what you can relate to. Biggie wasn't rapping about robbing people for pure entertainment. He was rapping about that because it was reality to him.

I rarely listen to Ready To Die because it's not something I want to glorify anymore. Reasonable Doubt is better than Ready To Die because it has a different outlook on things.

When Big was rapping about the drugs and the k!lling he seemed hopeless. When Jay raps about the drugs it's just business.

"I want to dedicate this song to all the people who call the police on me when I was only trying to make some money to feed my daughter." Biggie just sounds lame. He was lost. Jay on the other hand was business. "I ain't trying to survive, I'm trying to live it to the limit and love it a lot.

Tie to me... Big's brain was kinda where Pac's was on 2pacolypse now. And as we can see, 90% of mofo's don't even speak on that 2pac.

But both albums were real.. Both took you places mentally... Both had you dancing.. Both had you in the corner just bobbin your head with your eyes closed... Both of them are appreciated by all true hip hop fans.. Both sold about 4 millie or so before the deaths... I really don't see any way to split the 2. Except it being Big's rookie joint. He had the game on smash when he was out, and it was his first Joint... It instantly propelled him to the title of Top 3 in the game lyrically and commercially, Big made cats step there rap game up from just talking about gangsta s**t... Big also had more hits, and more successful remixes and cameos...

-EDIT- But Pac did have the BIGGER HIT IN "Dear Momma".

supposedly according to pac, ready to die was a complete copy of pac's original me against the world. he said that when he heard biggies album then he had to totally re-do his own album otherwise people wouldve thought pac was biting big, but it was actually the other way around.

Pac did say that. Not saying I agreed with him, but I think that most of that stuff ended up being R U Still Down. And if that's the case, I can see what he means.

MATW was Pac's most complete work. My personal favorite. Ready 2 Die was not overated. Big was on some get money however I can s**t, and life being f**ked up without it. Both you can really feel them thru the songs, just Pac a lil more. He seemed like he was speaking to/for everybody in the hood, no matter where you were. Songs like Lord Knows, It Ain't Easy, Heavy in the Game, Pac did it.

Both are definite eternal rotation worthy.

Damn the golden age of rap was good.
