My impartiality allows me to recognize that Reasonable Doubt was just as celebrated around the time of its release as OB4CL. And I clearly stated in my post that I'd be able to present you with several other publications written at the time of its release that were in favor of the album.

Reasonable Doubt achieved Gold status within a similar duration of time in which it took OB4CL to achieve so, charted more successful singles, and was far more quoted and referred to by other rappers than OB4CL little after its release, so I'm not sure what "impact" or "influence" you're talking about outside of OB4CL "pioneering" mafioso rap--even though Kool G Rap was rapping about what they were rapping a decade prior...

ima tell you this

RD was not celebrated like that. . .Jay went gold because he had a pop single, but it took a LOOOOOONG time before people really realized that RD was teh classic that it is. Like around the time when jay finally blew up with Vol 2, then heads was going back and saying RD was classic

But I was i the tri state during them years. . .i used to argue with n*ggas just to get them to give Jay a chance on the album

OB4CL and Illmatic are the two closest things to instant classics I can remember

but when a new album drops the same n*ggas will be in the thread like

"it takes a few years before you can determine if an album is a classic"
