problem is that these albums truly are comparable. 36 chambers has such sentimental value to me. it is my favourite album of all time. illmatic is real nice though. heres my opinion...

I personally prefer Wu because there's more quality available - due to the increased quantity.

That said, Illmatic is more concentrated quality & therefore could be perceived as better lol

Illmatic is my all time favorite album, but Enter the 36 is definitely in my top 10 all time prolly top 5. Up that hight though it is really just splitting hairs. The Wu albums was definitely more influential on NY hip hop, but I have always liked Illmatic more.

36 chambers to me is in my top 2 or 3 and i can still listen to it straight thru, and i do alot...illmatic is somewhere in my top 10 but new york state of mind is really the only joint off it i can take anymore. i'll always go with wu, even if its wu versus jesus

Wow are you guys serious. How can you say that illmatic didnt have as big as an impact as 36 Chambers. GTFO. First of all when illmatic dropped that was the sign that the East was on the top of the game with that one. I love 36 chambers but seriously its illmatic. Nas did it by himself and had a bigger impact when the album dropped. Yes i am a nas Fan

when i compare these, i look beyond just beats and rhymes...i'd give Nas the edge on lyrics and impact, with Wu having the edge on beats and creativity...


but the thing that separates them the most was how they were put together...Nas crafts his in a way that perfectly melds each song together in a New York narrative...each song is equally beautiful and complements each track around it...all the songs on 36 Chambers were excellent, but the way they put the album together almost makes it seem like a mixtape with skits...i'm not taking anything away from Wu for that, because it's still a classic album easily...


but Illmatic wins for being the better crafted and more impactful album...
