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.

yo for real with out a doubt
illmatic straight classic
10 hood tracks
it also shows how far nas was ahead of his time
20 years of age at the time and thats what was his story
whether he lived or witness it
thats just something u cant make up
nas is a true street poet

This is straight up hip-hop, no bullsh*t. Nas put out an album that is timeless, so its gets an easy 5 mics.

What is there to say about this album...it's the definition of a classic, rap at it's finest. Every track is a 10 and Nas puts his best efforts and rhymes down for each track, and each one has an amazing beat. Some of the best producers ever on this album from DJ Premier and Pete Rock, to the underrated Large Proffesor, as well as a track each from L.E.S. and Q-Tip. Every track = 5/5 but...

Top 3 Tracks:
1) It Ain't Hard To Tell
2) Represent
3) The World Is Yours

The only other album seeing this is OB4CL.
I remember coppin it the day it came out, popping it into my walkmen(cassette)and wondering if Nas was from another planet or something, because thats how bananas Illmatic was to me...I was also high as hell and drunk off the "Idiot"(St Ides).
