greatest album all time...hands down...nothing more to be sed about this one...honestly, the ONLY album i can repeatedly listen to from the very beginning to the very end....how convenient that thas about how long it takes to smoke a fat a.ss blunt while ur lissenin to it....perfect timing, no bullsh*t, sick lyrics, tite a.ss beats...there is NOTHING wrong with this album....the crazy sh*t about nas is, he fell off after this, but came bak wit stillmatic which wasnt far at all from bein a classic, but not really there....god's son which was just about as good as stillmatic...and lost tapes which were jus all hot a.ss songs....he never fully fell off the radar, and his new sh*t is still some of the better lyrical sh*t out these days...nas is GOAT.....jay is close, and so is em....

who else wants a jay/nas/em firm clique??? that sh*t would be sick as fuk man....take over the game and end all the bullsh*t...keep hiphop alive and sh*t....

one what?
Agree completely, i really like It Was Written to though, listen to it enough and you realize theres quite a few good tracks on there.

after popping it in my discman after a few months i'm always in awe of how flawless this album is, the syllable counting is perfection, this album is the best 40 minutes in hip hop, nas=goat

Man, i still haven't heard an alblum that has the lyrical excelence that illmatic has..There isn't even another Nas alblum that is at illmatic's level. Illmatic is a standard for all rap alblums

Its good to see that Jay-Z and Nas squashed the beef. Nas is one of the best in the game and im looking forward to him dropping that NASDAQ Dow Jones

I understand opinions and all but could you give some sort of reasoning as to how Stillmatic is better than Illmatic, I'm kind of lost with that one especially with the god awful Braveheart party on that album.

One of the best Hip Hop albums of all time, definately a 4.5, I personally prefer Stillmatic though, thats a pure 5 in my eyes.

It was written was dope as hell, I was listening to it the other day and was just thinking, this sh*t is classic. It wasnt 5 mics but it was a classic, I gave it a 4.5 and played the hell out of that album, even got an autpgraphed copy from Nas at an in store. My ranking is as follows

Illmatic
It Was Written
Lost Tapes
Stillmatic
God Son
I Am (even though my favorite Nas song of all-time is on here "Nas is Like")
Street's Disciple
Nastradamous

But like we always like to say, personal opinion

I can actually see why you said that, I actually felt that way for a long time but in the long run Illmatic was just so damn great.
