Lyrically i think its a step up. The production is very different to Illmatic, trackmasters have a mainstream sound but they still gave it a dark tone that fits with the really grimy stuff like 'suspect' and 'live nigga rap'. The production inspired some of Nas' best songs.

I think the lyrics and themes on this are quite deep, and Nas just improves with darker and deeper raps.

I don't know if its better than Illmatic, thats almost if not a perfect album. But its a classic.

IWW = classic 10/10 album.
funny how much my perception on IWW has changed since this post. it's still a solid album but IWW has become grossly overrated by revisionist hiphop fans. All of a sudden, his sophomore effort is rated higher than his debut album. in what universe? it even beat The Infamous in a head to head poll on the allhiphop forum recently. not cool.

Whatever you say buddy LOL. Nas and Mobb Deep's Live Nigga Rap is the hardest song on It Was Written.

Shook Ones II > any joint on IWW.

Party Over is my favorite joint off the LP. you can't close an album better than that.

P went hard on Live Nigga Rap

"Floatin in the river with your body wrapped in plastic"

"Runnin up in the spot, mask and duct taped up
Pig tied they motherfuckin wrists to they ankles"

Nas was saying things like

"curriculum of a mathologist deep throats, they try to swallow this
Anthropologists, dynasties of great knowledgists"

he was just throwing out a bunch of big words.

LOL@Chungsanity saying Nas using big words on Live Nigga Rap. I agree. Keith Murray and Canibus do the same thing and I bet they don't know what the words mean that they're saying LOL. That's good though that they read books because most rappers don't read. So at least Keith Murray, Canibus and Nas have something else to talk about instead of talking about the same stuff that most rappers talk about which is killing, sex, drug dealing and money LOL.

Lol@ complaining about Nas using big words. Are those lines that difficult to understand?
Anyway, classic song, and great verse from Nas. P's verse was meant to be on LA,LA, a great verse as well. I think the song was meant for Mobb Deep's album.

I have no problem putting IWW over The Infamous. Nas is a better, more interesting MC than both P and Havoc and I've never been crazy about Havoc's beats.
