    this is the way sean paul should of used his flow sometimes.

  11. why? Says:

    Illmatic > Reasonable Doubt

  12. b-ease Says:

    Gotta be honest, I’m really surprised this album is actually being released, thought it was another one of those typical collabs that gets mentioned for years with no product to show for it.

    Also, the second song that leaked off this > the first song that leaked, and I’m not sure, but I think this is the first.

    Gotta hear this new verse tho…

  13. b-ease Says:

    Illmatic > Reasonable Doubt

    ^^
    Uhhhh…I’m gonna go with co-sign, although my feelings on this may change next week. Or tomorrow.

  14. b-ease Says:

    Nas Escobar > Nasty Nas = Black Power Nas > Def Jam Nas

    I dont think its close at all

  19. Woodrow The Basehead Says:

    I like Reasonable Doubt and Ready to Die is my shit but….

    *takes deep breath*

    ….pound for pound Illmatic is the best hip hop album ever.

    *collapses*

  20. cOLD Says:

    … good niggas always seem to end up with some hard times ” preach my nigga preach.

  21. b-ease Says:

    Mo Milly beat from Pricele$$ >

    ^^
    Word. That song popped up on my Pandora while I was at the gym last week, pissed that I couldnt rewind it back. Drakeula murders that shit.

  22. Remixznflow Says:

    GEMS all over this one…

  23. a tribe called quest Says:

    –duh

  24. why? Says:

    Every song on Illmatic is too good. Half of Reasonable Doubt was ok.

    Coming Of Age >

  25. b-ease Says:

    I dont think its close at all

    ^^
    With no biases or individual views attached, you’re right, its not close. But as far as listening experiences go, I personally hold them in pretty close regard.

  26. b-ease Says:

    Coming Of Age >

    ^^
    The current “pause/no homo” era of hiphop kind of runined that song for me.

    Coming of Age pt. 2 > Coming of Age pt.1

  27. &What?! Says:

    Thank Me Later, first week, I’m taking all bets..
    ..cause a million copies really isn’t far fetched

  28. plug Says:

    nas went the fock in on that last verse. definetly worth a rewind. and I so fill his pain. I got my support lowered to $830 and my baby moms is already running back down there to them saltines tryin to get it back up… SMH. I swear the crazyest shyt happens to good nuccas

  29. Remixznflow Says:

    Both albums mean alot personally.. i refuse then, to compare the two… for what? its not like if i put one over the other ill listen to it more or less…

    i refuse to rate music thats in my personal library like that anymore… i have 5 stars next to each and every song

  30. cOLD Says:

    kelis done got Nasir on some shit, bless her heart.

  31. Beezy Says:

    Bun B murked that Mo Milly joint

    “let her top me off while I’m ashin’…”

  32. b-ease Says:

    That Dyson book on Illmatic is actually a decent read. It’s a little over analyzed, but that tends to happen when you do dissertations on music. I recommend everybody at least flipping thru it.

  33. a tribe called quest Says:

    the verse > the song

  34. b-ease Says:

    2010 could be a good year for Esco…

  35. Remixznflow Says:

    cheatin while her husband rushin on the forty yard line….

    damn..

    –Definitely over analyzed

  37. b-ease Says:

    the verse > the song

    ^^
    I really dont find that hard to believe at all.

    ^ e book? online copy?

  39. plug Says:

    the verse > the song

    ——-
    yup.

    might be the best verse nas spit in years. its funny how emotions bring out the best in an artist

  40. why? Says:

    I can never take Jay seriously. Most of the time I just listen to the 3 Blueprint albums just for the beats. Never really cared for what Jay had to say.

    * Has epiphany that Jay-Z isn’t the God MC people claim him to be*

    negative.

    ^^^

    yeh, this

    Reasonable Doubt Vs It Was Written is probably a more appropriate comparison anyway, considering they both came out the same year and both received 4 mics from the Source…

  44. b-ease Says:

    * Has epiphany that Jay-Z isn’t the God MC people claim him to be*

    ^^
    Let’s not get crazy.

    Like land said last week, and like many said before, NO rapper has ever had a run of consitency like Jay had from 98 to 2002. With the slight possibility of Ice Cube.

    6 albums ranging from excellent to classic in a 6 year period? Come on son.

    ^you know what i have realized… both mc’s are listened to when you are in a certain mindset… no shots but if you listen to jay your mindstate is one of ignorance and greed… and there is a place for that…

    nas is someone i personally listen to to get more of a message… not that rap is by any means where i go for personal growth.. but its good to see it mirrored BACK… and nas has the tendency to do that…

    ooh. good one. I say:

    It was written > Reasonable dought

  49. &What?! Says:

    Pricele$$ isn’t all that bad an album, good beats, some good verses from Wayne, Drake and Bun B..

  50. Sleep Says:

    I read in the papers that la reid job is in danger. The jews at universal are mad at him cause rihanna and mariah flopped and their mad cause he let jay off the label. Wtf I’m sure they thought that jay buying himself out of his contract was a good deal at the time. It wasn’t a bad deal until empire state of mind. Fucking white folks stay fucking with a nigga job

  51. Shooter Says:

    wow at that 2nd verse

  52. b-ease Says:

    no shots but if you listen to jay your mindstate is one of ignorance and greed…

    ^^
    Gross overgeneralization.

    Like, seriously dude? What if you just appreciate good hiphop? Ill flows over dope beats.

  53. RNC Chairman Michael Steele Says:

    It’s a goshdarn shame when producers like DJ Toomp cut down on their output involving big names in order to work on their own artists too soon.

    There’s a time for that but you have to wait until, your fully established. Guy had a couple of GREAT years, but he’s not famous enough to push an artist by himself, like Kanye, The Neptunes, or Timbaland are. He IS talented enough, and he can get famous enough by doing more work with the big players for a while longer, and maybe even appearing in the videos [and maybe saying something on the tracks, not rap but you know, the talking parts at the beginning/end].

    It’s like Just Blaze. They’re doing some work for famous dudes, I know Toomp had joints on the T.I album, and probably Jeezy’s too, and Blaze had stuff on T.I and Wayne’s stuff. But they need to be behind some big hits, with more artists like this.

    ^Long term this probably works well financially, too. Not everybody’s up to the task of running their own label [vanity or not].

    Yes.

  57. Remixznflow Says:

    Gross overgeneralization.

    Like, seriously dude? What if you just appreciate good hiphop? Ill flows over dope beats.

    ^let me be more clear… ignorance as in.. i dont feel like trying to listen.. i just wanna kick back and not try and hear shit… let the beat build and flow over that shit.. no necessary gems needed… again no shots..

  58. RNC Chairman Michael Steele Says:

    Nas’ post-Takeover output> Nas’ pre=Takeover output.

    Even with Illmatic, I believe this.

  59. b-ease Says:

    Bottom line, if you really love hiphop, I dont see how you cant be a fan of both Nas AND Jay. I really dont.

  79. why? Says:

    Since 97 I been listening to Jay and I knew him before Nas but if it was 6 years ago I would’ve said Jay > Nas. I just think as I grow up my taste changes and I can’t speak for most of my generation because they will forever stan for Em and Jay.

    When I’m on my ignorant shit I gotta listen to Wu though not Jay.

    nas will never lose his lyricsm or wordplay its wraps corny rappers

  88. ArtutaBR Says:

    Reasonable Doubt>>>It Was Written

  89. Knjaz Says:

    First, the hook is damn corny. It makes me almost want to puke. Second, Nas’s verses were meh. Second above first. Damien Marley is somewhat lame in general. It sounds in total like something you would find some white boys blasting as a motivation tool, kind of like how retards play Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane and “relate” by calling it the call of “real” niggas when they live at home with mom and dad.
