    LOL@i'm being gay. Hotnikks, just because I don't like the same album as you doesn't mean I'm gay. I don't have to like what you like. It Was Written isn't all that good.

The freestyle before 'give me yours' sums it up but IWW was better because it had more range in my opinion. Infamous also has a lot of tracks but most are useless lol. Shook Ones, Party's Over, Survival of the Fittest, and sometimes up north trip. Everything else is redundant. Even Shook Ones and Survival are the same damn song basically.

    IWW had The Message, Rule the World, Live Nigga Rap, Suspect, Nas is Coming, I Gave You Power, The Set Up etc. All of them take you to a different place while still working together fluidly. Each song stands alone. Infamous is for people that like that specific story but for me it's not enough to entertain me for the whole of the albums duration


    P and Havoc can't rap like Nas either. Only thing I don't like about Nas is I think he was too focused on the persona and theme. Illmatic sounds like a collection of thought processes and It was written was less introspective and personal, which I guess is fine.
    you're entitled to your opinion bruh. if you think IWW is better, than so be it. The Infamous lacked a range of topics, but what do you think a young hiphop fan growing up in the hood circa 1995 wanted to hear anyway?

    just like Charles said, Live Nigga Rap was the hardest song on It Was Written and technically, it's a Mobb Deep track.

    Live Nigga Rap is a hard song and thats about it. Far from being the best production on the album.

    Two decades ago today, Nas dropped what continues to be his most polarizing album. Affirmative Action was the INESCAPABLE summer time banger. If you did not hear this song, then you probably lived in a soundproof home, because I used to hear this song about fifteen times a day from cars driving by. I instantaneously fell in love with I Gave You Power and thought that it was the most brilliant idea to have ever been put on wax in hip hop. NOBODY in hip hop has even remotely close to the level of attention to detail has displayed on his first five albums.
