    Default The Infamous vs Illmatic

    typically most would expect Illmatic to win this one but I think these are matched up pretty even. The Infamous imo as a CD appealed to me more but i wanna see how other people feel about it. Lyrically Illmatic is better but i think overall The Infamous is slightly superior.

    Nah, real know about the Infamous, P's lyrics and Havoc's production was nearly flawless at the time. Too bad P has lost his "book of rhymes" and they aint letting Havoc on the boards, they new shit is gonna be a bunch of sing along hooks and party joints. I really did lose respect for these niggas.

    illmatic is an untouchable rap album. infamous is a new york classic but the lyrics don't hold a candle to nas's.

    ok when you ask what album is more banging....INFAMOUS by a mile.... i like nas more personally...but illmatic was a more intellectual album than infamous was...how can you argue at Survival of the Fittest and Shook Onez Pt. II arent fucking banging??


    if it was overall better album then it would be nas because that album has literally everything 9/10 atleast.


    peace.
    live and learn, dont be a bitch

    the beats for the infamous are better though illmatic isnt that far behind. lyrically its a total mismatch with illmatic towering over the infamous.

    illmatic wins!
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    well the the question was about what is more banging but w/e i think It Aint Hard To Tell really shits on most songs on The Infamous

    but imo i always get bored of Illmatics beats some of them are OOLLLDDD

    not sayin nas wasnt tight it was just thouroughly slow after Ny State of Mind up to Represent and then yeah but you guys are def right but it was about which is more "banging" as in like tight to bang your head against a wall to

    oh and i think Shook Ones pt. 2 is overrated imo

    i think Cradle To The Grave > Shook Ones Pt. 2

    these are both top 5 albums to me, but Illmatic is #1, untouchable. Havoc's production is better than Illmatic's, but the repetitive lyrics of Infamous are nothing to Nas's masterpiece
