It Was Written was cool but its not even a classic album!And nobody did the mafioso thing like Jay.Everybody else was just bosses,that n*gga Jay dived into the valleys as well as the peaks,that n*gga rapped from an emotional stand point and gave you way more depth than anybody else did while being hard at the same time.Like...it was no soft sh*t on the whole cd yet he was vulnerable in every verse...yall dudes are sleep.
Best post thus far. Jay wasn't just storytelling and imagery in terms of Mafioso. How many other dudes went into the mind of a hustler and explained both the upside and pitfalls that come along with that lifestyle. I still think people havent caught onto alot of sh*t that Jay was saying, if you look at it line for line, especially in a song like Can I Live, you can feel the emotion, his constant struggle and relationship with the lifestyle he was leading.

i been bumpin both back to back recently for some reason.

ALL EYEZ ON ME>REASONABLE DOUBT>IT WAS WRITTEN

IT WAS WRITTEN is still a classic, but....

it was written has holes. you cant say you bump that sh*t track after track.

NAS IS COMING is hella dissapointing(DR DRE TRACK) . this was a forewarning of the firm album.

REAL HUSTLERS respect reasonable doubt. nas could of said it lyrically better. but jays context was realer, grown man sh*t. like jay has said, he dropped his first album at 26. he been gone through life and was able to make an album that portrayed a lifestyle and an era. and theres nothing mafioso on that album like nas trys to do or kool g rap. reasonable doubt it a jay's baby. sh*t is tough.

Definitely rollin' with It Was Written. I would definitely agree that both are classic albums, but IWW was just so creative on so many levels.

So winning a poll on boxden automatically makes it a better album?
