it was an even score from tracks 1-9, but thats where Illmatic ended. reasonable doubt had FIVE more tracks, and all five were classics.
thats where I make the distinction. Illmatics tracks are tough guns, but there's only 9 tracks - NINE.
anyway, Im gonna cop another copy of illmatic tomorrow to celebrate the 15th anniversary. deserves my respect and 15 bucks.
^ hahahah thats the most ridiculous way to compare those two albums
you really overrate the song "regrets", its not even close to my favorite song on RD
jay z said ether made him stronger lol
regrets is one of the most introspective, personal, honest songs ever.
"Metamorphic, as the dope turns to cream
but one of these buyers got eyes like a Korean
It's difficult to read em, the windows to his soul
are half closed, I put the key in"
^the meaning behind that is genius
"I found myself reminiscing, remember this one
when he was here he was crazy nice with his son
I miss him, long as I'm living he's living through memories
He's there to kill all my suicidal tendencies"
no offense, but you gotta take that statement back.
I also gotta say best intro ever: cant knock the hustle
best outro ever: regrets

^ Regrets is a great song i never said it wasnt..personally i like Can i Live, Dead Presidents, Cant Knock the Hustle, and some others better
im saying you overrate it....it doesnt come close to It Aint Hard to Tell
I don't even think that vocal sample is from MJ, the horns in the background are but if the vocals are they're disguised well. Either way this thread is retarded and the thread starter is probably the only one whos holds this opinion.
I know how Europe does it, and how the US does it, but everyone from the US should just shut the fuck up when it comes to Europe. I guess some of y'all never heard The Streets, IAM and artists like that, because in Europe, dope motherfuckers like that ARE MAINSTREAM.
I say eat yourself alive.
bring back begongo!!
Sad how europe embraces us Americans hip-hop wise but none of us care about hip-hop from there.
^^^^most of it isn't in a language u could understand.
But fo real, if u ever get the chance, learn spanish and french, lot's of good hiphop in those two parts.
bring back begongo!!
