Illmatic....can still listen to every song and it sounds like it could be a new album....all of the other three have at least one song that didn't age well (but a remix brought a few songs back)

If the list was being fair it would be

LAD, AEOM, RD and It Was Written

simply because they are all in the same time frame

Me Against The World was recorded between 1993- 1994 as was RTD and Illmatic was partly recorded in 1993

While RD was mainly recorded between 1995 and 1996

There was a huge leap in hip hop at the end of 95

Take a record like "If I Ruled The World", listen to the production and mixing on that and compare it to any song off Illmatic and you'll see it blows it out of the water as far as overall mainstream song

Same goes for AEOM e.g Cali Luv, Ambtionz Az a Rida, Mad At Cha

and LAD e.g Hypnotize, Long Kiss etc...

IWW, AEOM/MAKAVELI, LAD and in a different league...

BIGGIE, Pac and Nas had huge budgets for those albums, the best engineers money could buy, the best stuidos, the best mastering houses...thus the quality is official

Put it this way get any Rick Ross song and try to turn it up in ur ride without it starting to sound distorted, now put on a song such as Cali Luv or Hypnotize and turn that up, and watch the louder it gets the better it sounds, everything is in sync...thats because Pac and Bigs albums were mixed by grammy winning rock engineers using analogue while Rozay sh*t is all digital, so it suffers from the clipping

I still listen to ATLiens every few months. ATLiens + Aquemini are pobably the greatest albums to ever come out the South.
Damn beat me too it
Aquemini is definately underrated from all aspects of what hip hop/ rap was and what it could be all on one cohesive incredibly well produce engineered and innovative work of art.

Me against the world because pac was doing sh*t ahead of time unlike these other bum a.ss n*ggas who's sh*t aged faster than cheese. Pac knew exactly what he was doing. Predicting things, staying on top with times, etc. He the Beatles/Michael Jackson/Elvis of his generation.
