I can admit that albums that are considered “great” are not my particular favorite albums, I like the dynasty more than the blueprint….but I know that blueprint is better though…..
I’m a reasonable nigga. And to use your example, I think It Was Written is > but I know that’s not really the case. But that’s not what I’m doing with Life After Death. It really IS better than RD.
RD is timeless, while albums like LAD & illmatic sound dated. That’s the biggest difference in that whole debate.
LAD & illmatic remids you of what you was doing around that time, but don’t relate to your current status, while reasonable doubt puts you in a place where his lyrics relate to current events in your life
c’mon, white collar niggas on there A game feel like no one can knock there hustle, it’s always politics as usual, only presidents represent them.
*waits for niggas to get mad*
Joe budden is just a surface level lyricist….. Meaning he has lyrics and is able to be lyrical in meaning….but they stop at just that….Nothing very deep or insightful…that causes you to think on an existenstial level as the likes of Andre 3000 or Nas….
Kind of what I was thinking..I’m not even going to get into this argument but it shouldn’t even be close to who is the GOAT. Everyone should by now know it is Jay. Of course everyone has different opinions but I mean fuck Jay has 10 #1 albums.
^ ^ ^
I agree. If you flip the rookie card and look at all of the stats, Jays the G.O.A.T. Going just by music Jay is up there but probably not the G.O.A.T., but definitely up there.

>>That’s like me saying…tupac is a western Goat….
he is. come on you know niggas regionalize.
^So what about me & billz & the rest of the niggas from b-more with no one to represent there struggle? It’s no, “i’ma ride with the home team” for us, we just gotta choose what was given to us.
>>>let’s be serious.
if you’re not from NY, you lay awake at night whispering “why? why couldn’t I have been born there lord?”
NY is your hometown’s daddy
^I hate New York, seriously, I went up there, I was dying to come back home, the traffic sucks, no hospitality at all, the airs too thick, & people act like it’s a blessing to be from there. That’s why alot of NY niggas get killed coming down here tryna hustle, there too slick for themselfs & end up getting boxed up, but that’s another topic.
