    Two of my favourite albums ever, but Illmatic is easily the best.

    Take any verse from Illmatic, and put it with the best from Lifestyles, and the Illmatic verse will be far ahead. Take the best verse from Illmatic and it destroyes every thing on Lifestyles. I love the hardcore beats on Lifestyles, and L's punchlines and flow, but lyrically Nas is so far ahead on that album its not even funny

    illmatic is shit you listen to when you're smoking and chilling at home doing your thing. lifestylez is hype music to listen to when you work out or you're driving. i chose illmatic though

    hard choice. someone mentioned above that, LOTPAD is more a battle album and illmatic more a lyrical album which is probably true but "put his brains in the street now you can see what he was just thinking" Big L was soooo ill. both albums just amazing I dunno

    Illmatic, its not even a contest. The only thing Big L was better at was humor/punchlines. 'One Love' alone has more scope and depth than the whole of Lifestylez.
