Can't believe people take it so serious, no matter who wins any tournament people opinions not gonna change, and n*ggas talkin bout making different accounts to vote

a lot of people voting for the name "Illmatic" instead of what's on the cd....and I ain't talkin bout this round, I don't think MATW should be here....but Illmatic shouldn't of beat The Infamous....people tend to chose what they feel they should chose...how the hell this album that didn't age all that well with only 9 songs on it is the greatest rap album of all time?? It's Nas' 3rd best album, still a great album but overrated

"Upon its release, the album debuted at number 12 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling 59,000 copies in its first week. However, its initial sales fell below expectations and its five singles failed to achieve significant chart success. Though it experienced initial low sales, Illmatic received rave reviews from most music critics upon its release and earned praise for its lyrical content, production, and Nas' lyricism."

"Me Against the World, released while Shakur was imprisoned, made an immediate impact on the charts, debuting at number one on the Billboard 200. This made Shakur the first artist to have an album debut at number one on Billboard 200 while serving time in prison"

I like both Albums, both Albums are Classic. How ever, Me Against the World takes the Prize home at the end of the day just because if you look at the Bigger Picture the Album had more of a bigger impact on society simply because Tupac was the better Artist. He had the WHOLE package, while Nas was just "Lyrical" rapping over some cool mellow beats. Tupac's album was more inspirational and reached people on a more personal level. Till this day Me Against The World the song itself is one of Pac's highly analyzed Songs that people of this day can still relate to which is why it has over 22,000,000 hits on YouTube. Who can't relate a phrase "Me Against The World"? That alone speaks Volume. Again, Pac reached people on more levels than just being lyrical. He was very Spiritual. This is why Tupac will always be the most prominent dominant rapper of all time.

Funny you say that cause I've always thought "Infamous" was overrated ...Plenty of albums around that time i preferred over that album imo Prodigy skill level get's overrated. Mobb Deep had the sick beats and a grimey style but Prodigy was never as good as the elite like Nas, Big, or some members of Wu Tang...and Illmatic aged fine.
