    true, true.... we, europeans have opportunity to listen rap from various countries, and you guys don't.

    Illmatic is just about flawless IMO, no need to pick shit apart.

    Last Real Nigga Alive, Hey Nas, Book Of Rhymes, Heaven, this isn't supposed to be a street nigga album. That's why you don't like it. It's been 15 years and niggas still won't let go of the nasty nas image.
    Book of Rhymes is boring if u ask me, good concept, but he's just talking about how wack he used to be. [Big LOL to that]

    All of the other songs are nothing.....c'mon, compare Heaven to Cage's - Nothing Left To Say, and you'll see that u can be lyrical and with an open heart on the same track.
    bring back begongo!!

    Im sorry if i come off sounding like an ass hole but... i dont really care whats going on over in Europe. I dont give a shit whats being played on the radio over in Europe because to me, America is hip-hop. So when you say "at least we dont play Soulja boy on the radio" i got to laugh to my self cuz i just dont give a shit.

    at all.

    There are so many classic lines. And that to how Nas rides the kick drum, listen on the the 3rd v.
    I think the first verse is the best because of "Deep like The Shinin', sparkle like a diamond/
    Sneak a uzi on the island in my army jacket linin" hahaha DOPE

    and also... "I drank Moet with Medusa, give her shotguns in hell
    From the spliff that I lift and inhale, it ain't hard to tell"

    I was disappointed when my humorous but classic RD thread was locked so whatever.

    yall know deep down that Reasonable Doubt > Illmatic, kinda like how yall know deep down that Big L > Rakim but think Ra is the god mc when he's not. Big L is better than Rakim in every fucking way, kinda like RD > Illmatic. if Illmatic had 2 or 3 more tracks, it would be the perfect album - hell I'd be struck with enormous dillema if that was the case.

    Illmatic had 9 songs, and it was 8/9 in terms of good tracks. I could never get into one time 4 your mind despite a few quotables.

    RD was 13/14 with the tracks and although aint no nigga is the scapegoat I truly dont give a fuck - it was still hot.

    13 classic tracks > 8 classic tracks.

    yall are just too brainwashed by Nas saying "wanting to be on every last one of my classics." seriously get a grip.



    the greatest intro to any album, EVER. this isnt even the album version though - its the demo version and since it sounds dope, imagine how much better he made the album version.

    "jay-z's gonna stick your head up your asses faster than a rabbit gets fucked."
    For the love of god, please shut the fuck up about Reasonable Doubt.

    Like, we get it, you think its the best album ever made... we dont.

    and comparing the two albums track-by-track is fucking retarded. to me, any track on illmatic >> any track on RD. Therefore, i dont give a shit if RD has 5 more tracks on it.

    "It Aint Hard to Tell" is in the top 10 rap songs its at T.R.O.Y. or CREAM status for me when it comes to bonafide classics

    no doubt, I also think its now my favorite on Illmatic.

    ive always struggled picking between "It aint hard to tell", "NY State of Mind" and "The World is Yours"

    If you dont like the sample use in this song you should just leave hip hop alone.

    Forever.

    Son, you are clearly an idiot, you already proved this by saying that wasnt MJ on the sample (lol).

    So your opinion is obviously cracked out from the get go.

    Nas's 3 verses on this song, expekally the last verse, IS CHOC FULL OF CLASSIC LINES.

    There are so many classic lines. And that to how Nas rides the kick drum, listen on the the 3rd v.

    This rhythmatic explosion, is what your frame of mind has chosen
    I'll leave your brain stimulated, niggaz is frozen
    Speak with criminal slang, begin like a violin
    End like Leviathan, it's deep well let me try again
    Wisdom be leakin out my grapefruit troop
    I dominate break loops, givin mics menestraul cycles
    Street's disciple, I rock beats that's mega trifle
    And groovy but smoother than moves by Villanova
    You're still a soldier, I'm like Sly Stallone in Cobra
    Packin like a rasta in the weed spot
    Vocals'll squeeze glocks, MC's eavesdrop
    Though they need not to sneak
    My poetry's deep, I never fail
    Nas's raps should be locked in a cell
    It ain't hard to tell
    Wow. I was completely wrong. Obviously everything you say is the gospel truth so i'm going to stop listening to Hip Hop now. I get the feeling a lot of idiots listen to it anyway.

    you cant judge an album based on the amount of songs, is pink floyd's wish you were here a bad album because its 5 songs? you have to look at the total product
