I got something for IWW... it's not in the tourney, but I didn't think more than one person was going to be lobbying for it to be in the tourney either. I'll throw it in there somewhere. Just not directly into the tourney. I'll probably just make a poll for it to face the champ after the tourney.
It sounds sacrilegious, but I think I would give It Was Written a first round bye and replace Midnight Marauders. Then do a poll for MM vs. Black Star to see what continues in the tourney. ATCQ albums have ZERO chance of winning on Boxden.

Great idea though, I can tell you put a lot of thought into this.

There's reason why you won't mention It Was Written.

wait what?

IWW is one of my favorite albums IWW>illmatic

but I'm not sure what you are trying to say, I didn't mention it because it wasn't part of what he said.
