Reasonable Doubt had D'evils and Dead Presidents II. It also featured Biggie Smalls. It Was Written had I Gave You Power and The Message. Plus Dr. Dre has a beat on it which was a big deal back then. Overall Reasonable Doubt was the better album, but It Was Written had more mainstream appeal.

It was written...Nas did the mafioso format better than Hov and so did Big and AZ...

Edit: How could I forget the Wu

what is up with the hype round reasonable doubt?

no sh*t jay was a beast on it, but it really lacks production value and its nothing new

i hate how people act like he laid the blueprint to mafioso/gangster/hustlin rap when there were so many similar classics that dropped before RD (Me Against The World, Ready to Die, The Infamous, Hell On Earth, Illmatic)

its a classic to me though, i cant argue against HOV havin two classics, it just saddens me how whack he has gotten IMO

exaccctlyyyyyy this is the same exact thing i mention to idiots when they want to have this same argument. it was written was nas zoning the fu*k out poetically and lyrically raw. jay was just introducing himself thats why jay is getting his d!ck sucked for this album. nas already dropped his debut 4 years prior and it was and had a bigger impact in the game as a whole than jays debut had. when jay debuted people where still talking about alooooot of othe rrappers beside him, when nas 1st came out everybody shut the fu*k up and listened to the album like for 2 years. everybody was either trying to adjust to his style or just didnt spit.

Thinking about it now, IWW is better to me. IWW is Nas at his lyrical prime, nothing released in that year is touching it.
