this ain't easy at all... I own both..

Illmatic is an album with more diversity, LOTPAD is really hardcore streetrap..

idk wich one to choose, like 'em both a lot, but illmatic definately takes it on the production tip

Neither is my favorite east coast album, but... I like illmatic more even though I happen to think Big L > Nas by a very wiiiiide margin.
Ultimately Nas wrote actual songs with loose but somewhat cohesive concepts, where as Big L was mostly just one liners and nothing else.

I love both albums but this is a no brainer. Illmatic. Lifestyles of da Poor and Dangerous is a great hip-hop album but Illmatic is flawless.

U SICK KID...

"I GOT STYLES U CANT COPY BITCH ITS THE TRIPLE SIX IN THE MIX STRAIGHT FROM H E DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS (L L)"


THAT IS VERY LYRICAL AND A VERY CREATIVE WAY TO SPELL TO L'S. BIG L LYRICS IS THE SICKEST ITS JUST NOT AS DEPTH AS NAS CUZ NAS DESCRIBES SHIT STORIES LIKE GHOST. BUT L PROVED HE CAN DESCRIBE SHIT VERY VIVIDLY ON HIS SECOND LP. L WOULD RIP NAS.

PLUS ILLMATIC ONLY REALLY HAS TWO HOT BEATS NY STATE OF MINE AND IT AINT HARD TO TELL.

ITS A TEN TRACK ALBUM AND I ONLY LISTEN TO LIKE 5 SONGS.

whats your favourite song off lifestylez ? to say Big L cant touch nas lyricaly even on their debuts is bullshit, big L is da man with lyrics mang, he made 2 albums and gets shout outs all the time, him and big pun put in the least amount of work (on LP's) for the greatest amount of respect.


"aye yo you better flee hops - or getcha head flown three blocks"
R.I.P. Big L - word mother.
"i got the wild style - always been a foul child - my guns go BOOM BOOM and your guns go pow pow"

"Big L be lightin' niggas like incense
Gettin' men lynched to win tits
I'm killin' infants for ten cents
Cause I'm a street genius with a unique penis
Got fly chicks on my dick that don't even speak English
I'm makin' ducks shed much tears
I buck queers
I don't have it all upstairs but who the fuck cares?
I'm grabbin' brews takin' fast swiggas
I get cash and stash figures and harass them bitch ass niggas
After you you're gonna get scared next
And if ya squad flex
I'm lettin' off like Bernard Getts
A tech nine is my utensil
Fillin' niggas with so much led they can use they dick for a pencil
I'm known for snatchin' purses and bombin' churches
I get more pussy on accident then most niggas get on purpose
I got drug spots from New York to Canada
Cause Big L be fuckin' with more keys than a janitor"

Big L was lyrical, more so than nas even, his problem as someone else noted was his first cd wasn't diverse in sound or subject matter.

He showed his colors with his witt his rhymes and his ability to change up/speed up slow down flows on certain parts, but unlike other similar mc's such as chino xl he failed to show any substance.

killing verses is great, killing songs is another matter entirely.

L can't be compared to Nas lyrically... All Big L did was Punchlines. He spat some of the dopest punchlines ever, but he didn't write timeles songs like Nas did. Plus Nas had better beats.
