Despite these regional differences, Hampton credits Illmatic with providing a common artistic ground for rappers on the West Coast and East Coast rap scenes. In the 2009 essay "Born Alone, Die Alone," she recounts the album's impact on West Coast artist, Tupac Shakur. While working as a journalist for The Source in 1994, Hampton covered three court cases involving Tupac. Around this time, she received an advance-copy of Illmatic and immediately dubbed a cassette version for Tupac, who became "an instant convert" of the album. The next day, she writes, Tupac "arrived in his a.ssigned courtroom blasting Illmatic so loudly that the bailiff yelled at him to turn it off before the judge took his seat on the bench." In her essay, Hampton implies that Nas' lyricism might have influenced Tupac's acclaimed album, Me Against the World, which was recorded that same year.

Pac was a student of the game and I have no doubt that if he was alive he would agree Illmatic is the GOAT album.

MATW isn't even Tupac's best album let alone better than the GOAT Illmatic

Aquemini really the best rap album ever though

Tupac isn't even top 30, mediocre fu*k, Nas with Illmatic elevated rap, dude is a genius, Tupac was a fairy, good thing he got shot up, but bad due to the irrational fanboys.

AZ's verse > MATW. Tupac fans only look at the death and have no comment for the weak lyrics.
fu*k this n*gga talkin bout crawl back in ya hole

My GOAT was influenced my the GOAT rap album. Us Pac fans have to accept this. Illmatic > MATW /thread
