    well yeah, but It Was Written feels like a more deeper album than Illmatic, still Illmatic is a different kind of a rap album I would say...not so mainstream as this one -> and it has the same greatness

    I like this album even more than Illmatic. Live Nigga Rap is tha dopest track on this album. Nas Is Coming is wack as fuck..... Street Dreams,I Gave you Power, Affirmativa Action etc. are classics too. I'd give this album a 8,5 or 9 /10

    Personally, this is one of my favorite albums of all-time and I feel as though it is Nas's best album. My favorite joint on it is "Watch Them Niggaz" which is my favorite Nas joint period. The only song I didn't like on this album was "Nas is coming" but everything else was heat.

    This album is an enigma because for whatever reason, as a collective, people could never get a good baseline on it pertaining to if they liked it or they didn't. I like it that way though. Again, classic!

    It was good but i don't think is as great as alot of people say (and definetly not better than Illmatic, not even close). I don't know, i'm just not really a fan f Nas' mafioso raps; Album had some very nice tracks and all, but the only standout track to me was "I Gave You Power".
    I just don't like you, thats all.

    Actually Stray Bullet by Organized Konfusion was the first song to rap from the perspective of a gun...or the first one that I know of, but Nas certainly wasn't the first to do it, although his version was real ill.

    As for the album, I'd rate it 9/10, an excellent follow up to Illmatic, possibly one of the best follow up albums in hip hop. To me this is a very well thought out album, which is listenable from start to end.

    Organized Konfusion - Stray Bullet

    He was the bullet.
