Maybe. but it was an album that set the bar for many hip hop albums to come and it's understandably "overrated".

Illmatic was and still is boring as fuck. Beats and lyrics alike.

It hasn't been long enough to call it a best of but it was quite impressive. I can see it being called AOTY but of all time there's just so many better albums. It was better than Illmatic thought but so are a lot of other albums Illmatic is generic over praised mafia-rap.

Honestly the first time I saw that it was released in '94 I was blown away. I thought it was late 90's or early 2000's. It was ahead of its time for sure.

Why do people think Illmatic is so good? De La Soul were already miles ahead on every conceivable level 5 years before it

>Why do people think Illmatic is so good?

Because it is. It doesn't matter if there are other good albums, Illmatic is amazing.
>>
>>61562592
I finally checked this out a couple days ago. Followed the instructions and was surprised at how good it was. It sounds like nothing else Ive ever heard in hip hop, and that's why it gets a lot of negative, as well as positive reactions. Most people want rap that sounds good but sounds like what theyre used to hearing. Angry Kid just sounds like it has no respect for anything that came before it, and it's uniqueness turns a lot of people off. I can appreciate anything this different from the status quo and I think that 10 years from now it has the potential to be looked back on as a classic. Also Illmatic was ok but very overrated, even for an old album. It just isnt that great.

>>61562687
both of these albums are based around a certain aesthetic that not resonate with you. they both have a unique portrayal of urban life and all of them are from queens too. anyways, they style might just not be your thing and thats fine. that being said, i have listened to a huge amount of hip hop and illmatic and the infamous are honestly among the best. they best have very well crafted beats and have very skilled rappers on them. the style is authentic and the lyrics are very vivid. I get lost in these two albums more than most albums in general, even outside of hip hop

they arent going for hardcore, horrorcore, or anything like that. its a group of kids coming out of queens giving you a glimpse into the life they know. The two albums are very dynamic in terms of what they are expressing. Sure the overarching theme is the street life, but they go into it on a lot of levels. both albums have a lot of subtly and i think that their depictions are incredibly vivid and effective. what are two hip hop albums that you would say top them?
