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.

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

I go all the way with MATW, but that one album was tampered for public audience 'cause of the s3xual abuse charges and all the controversy. Illmatic was more of a natural album 'cause Nas was the sh*t back (and only) in his prime time.

but I voted Pac cuz Nas a beotch. lol
and, by the way, atleast half the MATW album was recorded in '93, so wouldn't quote the media with that "how Tupac's album was inspired by Nas" article too much.

I often wonder why Illmatic gets so much love...It has some nice songs on there but I don't consider it a classic by any means...

When it comes to PAC's MATW vs. Illmatic it's not even close IMO.
7 Day Theory is PAC's most deepest album, All Eyez on Me is his most successful album but MATW is his most complete album..it has songs that range from various subject matters and touches so many emotions.
Grave and 1 others gave props

People REALLY voted for Illmatic?

Just like Chinx Drugs was an "amazing" rapper huh?

Illmatic is classic but MATW is a whole different league of classic.
