But does everyone like STILLMATIC over ILLMATIC?

The reason i ask, is i'm suprised to see it listed in y'all top albums... for me personally, i respect that ILLMATIC is a CLASSIC, But STILLMATIC easily is one of my most bumped albums and i have it held in a higher regard then NAS DEBUT.

The Rewind track... IS BRILLIANT!!!


Illmatic is a classic as well but it's such a one-generational album ... that sound just doesn't fit anymore. Stillmatic has 100x the replay value.

Yup Stillmatic would be his best, and your right about "rewind" - I remember when I first got the album, I played that track for everyone and their mom.

His track, "I give you power" is probably my all time favorite Nas song.

How good is that track, The Life & death of a gun

It was Written is a close 2nd in my favorite NAS albums

I'm just trying to find the track his got where the chorus sounds like """WAARRRRR-IIIOOOORRSSS" think it might be off "HIPHOP IS DEAD"

Defiantly Stillmatic, although like you said Illmatic is a classic, I was too young to grasp that movement, but the time Stillmatic came out with tracks like "ether" the diss track to Jay-Z, and the intro was so dope, I was in high school then and remember the album vividly. Listening to it now, nothing today compares.

J-Cole is defiantly on the radar, "turn of the lights" suprised that song did not blow-up more, and simba was nice too.

Nice selection Jreed, id rock those CD's as well, am a huge Pac fan who is not right ? Pac has always been there for me listening wise, but like wine his music keeps getting better with time, the words, the raw emotion, the truth behind what he is saying no one comes close to that.

Jreed I see you have some NorCal rappers on your list that I have not heard of (Ant Banks - The Big Bad Ass
anything old RBL and Spice 1), when did they come out with CD's if you don't mind me asking ?

They shooting ? OHHH Made you look you a slave to page in my rhyme book" haha one of my favorite lines.

Sometimes I miss what those rappers are saying as it sounds similar to other words but thank goodness we can follow by finding the lyrics. Most of the time am good just small parts some songs.

He needs to add more to his content, but i like his word play and flow, the west/cali needs to start coming with some hard hitters, there is a drought out west. I put Ya Boy out there because am really not sure who else doing it out west.

I'm thinkin bout making a song for em. An anthem of sorts. If I could get some backing [support/volunteer promotioners] it would be easy. I know Reggie would AT LEAST re-tweet it lol.

Anthem of sorts ? yes make it happen, get a clean instrumental, it has to be hyped to get people hyped, just do a youtube for it, you have time before the season starts.
