9/10

Itshard for an emcee to out do his own greatness, especially one as young as Nas was when he dropped this joint. He came damn close though. IMO, this was a hell of a follow up to one of hip hop's greatest LPs ever.

That's why he's the ILLEST!!!

why are you comparing nas to raekwon? they're similar artists, but there second and first albums both came out at different times. myself I don't really affiliate them except for a few collaborations.

7/10

8/10 that album is good, the only reason it sometimes gets faded is because it came out after illmatic, and every was expecting it to be as good as illmatic. the intro is intresting, and all the joints were done rite

I Gave You Power is definitely the gem of the album.

Check it, it was so dope that during his beef with Pac, the song(which may I remind you, didn't mention him in the slightest) ended their beef. That's how much Pac liked it. And afterward, Pac created Me and my Girlfriend, inspired by Nas's song.
