What impact? OB4CL had a way bigger impact for years before Jay's RD was considered a classic. Add this to the list of the things you're confused about, sadly. This is one thing people are correct about in his criticisms of Jay. Reasonable Doubt had a tiny impact on NY... OB4CL had 'Ice Cream' amongst other tracks getting bumped nationwide. These are facts. It took years before RD had any real impact and even then, many of those people still considered OB4CL the superior album.

And what does impact have to do with OB4CL being better than RD? Sadly, this tells me you've either never heard the album, or you're stanning hard for RD. There are a LOT of people who consider OB4CL one of the greatest hip-hop albums ever made. Yes, even over Reasonable Doubt. That isn't something to LMAO about and call disrespectful... If it was RD vs. Immobilarity or some sh*t, then I'd see the problem.
thats bc the sh*t in RD went way over n*ggas heads.

Lol. Bet. I wasn't throwing no shade or nothing, just being stupid.
But it's like I told my little brother. He know. Jay-Z wasn't poppin' like that when that sh*t first dropped. Not to say the sh*t was wack cause it wasn't it was a great album. But it's like one of them things where you can go into this thread on some "this is my favorite album sh*t, noone gonna tell me no different." Or... (if you go that far back) can be like "ok, this album had this much power, significance, what have you, when it dropped."

And fact of the matter is, regardless whether or not they may have went a little overboard with the slang lol, that album was a game changer. That sh*t fathered ALOT of this coke rap, mafioso sh*t n*ggas still on to this day! With respect to Jay-Z I wouldnt even put them two albums together on some "dare to compare" sh*t. Cause most n*ggas gonna ride with Rae.
sh*t was powerful music. And dig...

I STILL think Liquid Swords is the best overall Wu-Tang, Wu-Member, Wu-Fuhkin' etc etc album out them all.

No need to type paragraphs because none of those points have anything to do with the poll

Purple tape wins because boxden has a problem with jay winning anything
No need to type your sentences to let us know

Stans thinking the Internet has something out for Jay in a thread where they think someone who has a better album than Jay is actually beating Jay in a poll about who has the better album!

Nah. That's a classic album.

He said half decent. You know, like how people felt about RD in '96.

Lyrically Immobilarity has more class than Reasonable Doubt. The beats were lackin' though.

This is so true.

Perhaps that's the perfect choice then and it would either prove my point or Impeccable/ROE/yours?
