It deserves a good 8/10... but no is this album a 10.

Ofcourse yes, this is Nas's second best album.. but it's not a Classic.

Nas HAS only 1 classic and that's Illmatic.

i gave it a 8 because it had large number of classic tracks

Message, I Gave You Power, Shootouts(my fav), The Set Up, but it also had too many mediocre tracks.

Also i think that flow on this album is on the same level as illmatic, and after this album he never rapped on his albums like he did on first two(except for a few songs).

This is not an average (5), 6 or 7 album either. It's his third best album behind Illmatic & Stillmatic imo.

Thats a good point.

Thinking about it really hard I would give
'Illmatic' 9/10
and 'It Was Written' 8.5 - 9/10

but 'It Was Written' definately gets more plays.
I'm gonna throw 'Illmatic'in my car when I get home

real recognize real. all these people giving IWW less than a 9 dont know shit. IWW was better than Illmatic, that mainstream crossover was just a media blowup to make people think IWW wasnt on par with Illmatic.

Nas stepped up his lyricism on IWW and the beats were more sinister and gritty.

IWW = classic 10/10 album.
