The poll results are interesting.

Jay fans must still be asleep.

Don't worry. Once it gets that HT they'll show up like they did in the 8/9 matchup.

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!

Both my two favorite albums, but I'm riding with RD. Everybody knows lyrically Illmatic is better. Overall, RD is better. Both albums don't have not one wack track.. what is that 25-26 tracks combined, and not one wack track ? that's how you know these albums are classics.

Like i said, i love both albums, and every song between the two but honestly 'halftime' isn't better than one song on Reasonable Doubt.

Illmatic top 3 tracks:

Memory Lane, NY State of Mind, Life's a bi*ch

Reasonable Doubt top 3 tracks:

Dead Presidents II, D'Evils, Regrets

IMO.. some of you are disrespecting hov, like he's lil wayne or some sh*t
