illmatic shouldve had atleast 11 tracks and ended off with a track called Revelation since it started with genesis. 39 minutes is way too fucking short. 2 years to make illmatic and they dished out only 9 tracks and 1 intro? bullshit.

this is what separates illmatic from an album like reasonable doubt. 14 hot tracks and it ends with regrets, a closing track that illmatic lacked.

it makes sense cause people consider illmatic to be the bible of lyricism, even though it was soon surpassed by an album that dropped on june 25th, 96.

It's called bootlegging, niggas bootlegged the hell outta illmatic so they had to cut tracks. You're so smart.

where did you get that claim - from a word of mouth right? there were times when the studio was left alone for weeks. it had to be a lack of work ethic cause Nas was just 19/20 years old so he was probably living his youth first.

tomorrow's the 15th anniversary of Illmatic so pay tribute.

^^ co-sign, "Illmatic" is way above Reasonable Doubt.. and that's coming from someone who's placing RD in his top-10 albums of all time!

how is that real talk? that's some he say she say blasphemy right there.

I was disappointed when my humorous but classic RD thread was locked so whatever.

yall know deep down that Reasonable Doubt > Illmatic, kinda like how yall know deep down that Big L > Rakim but think Ra is the god mc when he's not. Big L is better than Rakim in every fucking way, kinda like RD > Illmatic. if Illmatic had 2 or 3 more tracks, it would be the perfect album - hell I'd be struck with enormous dillema if that was the case.

Illmatic had 9 songs, and it was 8/9 in terms of good tracks. I could never get into one time 4 your mind despite a few quotables.

RD was 13/14 with the tracks and although aint no nigga is the scapegoat I truly dont give a fuck - it was still hot.

13 classic tracks > 8 classic tracks.

yall are just too brainwashed by Nas saying "wanting to be on every last one of my classics." seriously get a grip.



the greatest intro to any album, EVER. this isnt even the album version though - its the demo version and since it sounds dope, imagine how much better he made the album version.

"jay-z's gonna stick your head up your asses faster than a rabbit gets fucked."

Reasonable Doubt is not by any means superior to Illmatic
