Out of these 4 Classics , Which one has aged the best ??
 

 
Let's take the first 4 classics from 4 out of 5 of the GOATS. These were all released around the Mid-90's within around a 24 month period.

In terms of production, lyrics, concept , overall sound and feel tell me which one aged the best and sounds the least " dated " now in 2012.

Not which one sounded better to you back then, or which one sounds better now by reminiscing of your experience with it in the past, but which one actually sounds the least "old " currently in 2012.

and please EXPLAIN your choice

Here are the choices :

Reasonable doubt. It's aged like a fine wine, illmatic has too, but the production on RD is much better.

Ready to Die
Me Against the World
Reasonable Doubt
Illmatic

I base this order on how rap music is perceived now, i.e. beat-centered.
Not saying that any of these albums lack lyrical quality, but i believe this order represents the quality/variety of beats which would be a focus of today.

its between pac and biggie because they sold more records than the other two from those albums and them dying impacted the albums even more.

but from a personal opinion it would be reasonable doubt.

RD, production wise
MATW, concept wise
Illmatic/RTD, lyric wise

the production game used on RD is still relevant and thers's a big chuck of artists today who could use these same beats and present em as new tracks, and this generation would vibe with (ex. dead presidents)

the whole concept of pac coming clean, sharing his inner most darkest secrets, surviving the gun shots and being in jail during the release of MATW is something unique

RTD/Illmatic are still admired for their wordplay and stand as trophies for eastcoast hiphop and hell, hiphop period

Reasonable Doubt cause it never sounds "old".... the others can be pin pointed as early/mid 90's rap

I love how the poll never reflects the responses in these type of threads, barely anyone has stated Illmatic first but it's tied in the lead with RD right now.

It's a tie for me, between all 4 of them. Classic music remains relevant and current.

RD and Illmatic sound somewhat dated

RTD and MATW don't as much

Dear Mamma and Temptations could drop today and still sound like they were made in 2012

Big Poppa and One More chance also sound like they could be made today
