Reasonable Doubt. Superior lyricism & rapping, and the soul-inspired production will never sound dated like the production on Illmatic.

Premier produced his greatest beats of all time on Reasonable Doubt.

Illmatic has no five-track sequence that can compete with that of Reasonable Doubt which extends from "Dead Presidents II" to "Can I Live".

The most recited and popular verse on Illmatic was AZ's verse, and it's nowhere near that of B.I.G.'s verse on "Brooklyn's Finest".

No song on Illmatic matching the honesty of "Regrets" and "Can I Live", nor the maturity of "D'Evils" and "Can't Knock The Hustle".

Comparing the lyricism, whether that be rhyme schemes, metaphors, entendres or imagery--Reasonable Doubt simply exceeds Illmatic.

HOV LOSTTT!!! Double triple entendre don't even ask me how! LMAO! No impact, no influnece!

These last few days convinced me that camel stans are the worst!!! Worse than Eminem's legion of wiggers and emo f*gs! All 3 Pac albums barely got 185 votes combined, with all the stans on here and whatnot!!! Reasonable Doubt got 171 votes and some people have the nerve to say he doesn't have stans here!!! I'd shank you mental midgets! At least I know OB4CL got votes because it's a classic album. Stannery aside OB4CL got the most votes out of all the albums presented here, so there you have it: OB4CL GREATEST RAP ALBUM OF ALL TIME!

Reasonable Doubt beat OB4CL!!! BLASPHEMOUS!!! YOU CAMELS DON'T DESERVE HIP-HOP!!!

Jay fans, N'Sync fans. Same sh*t lol! No wonder Hov decided to capitalize on that by doing songs & tours with Justin Timberlake. And that whiny man-bi*ch from Coldplay!

I wish Eminem albums were somehow a part of these threads so his stans would battle with Jay-Z stans. You can only f!ght fire with fire lol!
