Lol Illmatic is one of my favorite albums of all time, but people give him probs for shit he never did. Nas was not a better lyricist in the 90s than Rakim and Kool G were in the late 80s. I don't know why people say he took their styles to a next level, cause both these MC's were way more complex. The metaphors on Illmatic are pretty simple and the similes are pretty dope. Lyrically I think it's good, but not better than good. Overall Nas definitely was 5/5 on that album. The beats were also very important.
