Album only made it to the finals because it's by 2Pac

There's a number of albums that are closer to Illmatic in quality

I heard stillmatic before illmatic and was like wow! This guy is different from the rest. then I heard illmatic after and was completly blown away. I mean illmatic is the goat. it influnced jay-z reasonable doubt eminems infinite commons be and Raekwon's Cuban Linxs and many other rappers albums.

white boys and corny n*ggas from the burbs weren't even alive when illmatic dropped

they were infants when matw dropped


but they have been sold and told its a "real hip hop" classic so it is what it is


impact
replay value

there are at least 5 songs on MATW better than every song on illmatic



dear momma by itself >>>>>>> illmatic

I prefer a bunch of albums vs. Me Against the World, but that's the thing about classics(Especially from the 90s). A LOT of them are really interchangeable. In fact, there's albums that didn't even make the tourney(The Main Ingredient, Enta Da Stage, etc.) that I wouldn't be mad if they won the whole thing..that's how deep the 90s are. IMO, this was a good tourney and a good final. It wasn't exactly who I wanted all of the time, but that's the point.

very true

it just boils down to preference when ur dealing with dope albums,

matw aint even my fav pac album and illmatic aint even my fav nas album

but I cant be mad at the final, both albums had everlasting impact in a good way and a lot of substance

7 day theory > illmatic

Only reason it ain't make it to the finals is because of white manz world which is a big fu*k you to all the white people in this section
I would have to agree 7 day theory is better......

Personally, I thought 7 day theory was better, and wouldve voted for it in the finals. This is what led to me voting for Illmatic instead.
See everybody has there opinion but MATW just was on some other sh*t. Pre deathrow pac mind was on another level as far as his message and lyrical content.
