explain please, i'd love to hear your reasoning. or are you not man enough to sincerely and candidly defend your taste on an anonymous forum?

(probably lol)

it aint death grips

>>61563925
The repetitive soft jazz beats can shine on their own, only when Nas' monotone voice isn't ruining them

The lyrics are good for a 19 year old only, except they're not interesting and actually quite naive

The best moment comes when with the feature of AZ, and that says a lot about Nas

It's not bad but not even close to one of the best of the 90's
>>
>>61563876
Got to agree with this one, it's a good album though
>>
>>61563876
Agreed, it's not a bad album, but aside from NY State of Mind, The World is Yours, and It Ain't Hard to Tell, this album is overwhelmingly unremarkable
>>
>>61563876
But that's not MBDTF

Also, it's not even that influential

What's your point?
>>
>>61564535
Illmatic is whiteboycore
>>
>is considered best rap album of all time
>isn't
why do people get so defensive when it gets called overrated? its a good album, but its not the best, thats the definition of overrated.

Not that anon but what's wrong? Why not just list a couple of your top rap albums?

All I was asking for was a better rap album. You said Illmatic wasn't the best. What is then? Give me one example.

>>61563891
He's right tho. Either this or MMLP are the most overhyped albums in hip-hop. Illmatic isn't bad tho, it's just no where near top 10 where people always put it

Not 10 or even close
>>
>>61566782
It actually is highly influential, at least from a production standpoint. It pretty much led to the advent of rappers getting several different producers on their albums. Before then you had maybe 1-2 or 3 producers max on one album. What Nas did back in 94 has basically become the norm, just look how many different producers guys like Kendrick use. Nas' flow is also highly influential but I won't argue that with you.

>>61564651
SAW is great but I don't think its the be all of ambient techno. Its only more consistent than others in the genre

You want the posterchild of thrash metal, Master of Puppets. Most overrated garbage I've ever heard.

So edgy

>>61568353
Thrash metal fans routinely rank Reign In Blood as the best thrash metal album. Most hardcore fans do anyway. Normie thrash fans say MoP.

jay z bit his entire style from this album what the fuck i'm so fucking mad that you made this post
>>
>>61568518
Are you fucking kidding me? He references Ilmatic in the song D'Evils on Reasonable Doubt, but there's not biting whatsoever
>>
>>61568518
Gang Starr had that jazzy style way before Nas, it's a NY thing
>>
>>61567571
His flow is so monotone, it has little character. I guess he's good for a rapper at rhyming but that's it, his lyrics are not very clever.
>>
>>61568667
>but there's not biting whatsoever
he copied nas' flow 100%

this is how jay used to rap before illmatic:

In that case Nas copied Big Daddy Kane's flow

You do know most people only have this in their top 100 because it helped them get into more electronic music, right? It's in no way the best, but is an accessible stepping stone into its genre.
