Out of all of Hip hop's classics, Illmatic has to be the hardest to chose my favorite song. It changes all the time. Right now I'd say Memory Lane.:yes:

What are yall thinkin is the best on Illmatic?

One Time For Your Mind
I've never heard someone say this song as their favorite, its usually unfairly hated on like crazy. Everyone hates on the beat, but its so ILL

yeah I have literally never heard someone say that One Time for Your Mind is their favorite. That's cool though whatever speaks to you, right? I don't think its a bad song at all, but a good song gets lost on an album full of great songs.

the way this album is, when I listen to it I go through phases and I like a different song more than the other....right now I'm really feeling Represent and Halftime........The entire album is fuckin classic to me, except for One time for ya mind, I think they shoulda replaced that with Life's Like A Dice Game or Deja Vu

NY State of Mind or Halftime closely followed by Life's a Bitch.

I heard that Nas bought a 2 million dollar beat from the Neptunes. Does anyone know if this is true?

GhostfaceKillah199
07-27-2005, 10:35 PM
yeah, it's true, I don't think it leaked to the public yet, but fuck the neptunes. they make great music, but they some really greedy bastards, leaving their label and dropping all their artists off star trak so everyone has to drop 125 thou for a beat (while primo charges 30). it's that strictly business mentality that's corruptin' the game nowadays. peace

Bedlam
07-27-2005, 10:46 PM
I'm predicting this beat's gonna blow, I'm really not feeling alot of the Neptune's beats. Its alot of corny shit.

If Premier only charges 30 K per beat, Nas could have a whole fuckin album of classic beats for the price he paid on that Neptunes beat :no:

WTF

he reportedly paid 2 million dollars for the track.

and even if it's true, it's the worst career move ever

deadlymelody
07-28-2005, 01:24 AM
Nas get the fuck away from Neptunes. 30,000 for a primo beat? Fucking A he can make a classic album for $360,000.

Best tracks are World is Yours and Memory Lane, followed by NY State of Mind. I still to this day cannot stand "It Aint Hard to Tell." But meanwhile everyone says One Time for Ya Mind is the weakest track but that track amazes me every single time.
