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

8 outta 10
Great effort by a young NaSir.... This album is one of the best when it comes to the Mafioso themes that were big in the mid 90's....

It Was Written was my first rap album, and is my favorite Nas album.. Everybody else likes Illmatic much more, but to me, It Was Written is the best album Nas ever made..
