Quote from: "TNG"
My reasons for Illmatic being such a strong album have nothing to do with the music
It was such a strong album that years later, niccas have forgiven, forgotten, damn near let Nasir Jones get away with some of the most amazing and unbeliveable contradictions that I'm sure Hov just got plain sick off too.

1."You too R&B spell my name", "non-of that fake R&B ssh!t" -This coming from a man that did a song with Mariah Carey and Joe. ANybody remmeber that? Oh amnesia my bad. What about Mariah Carey's first r&B group signing Allure, remember that jiggy rhyme he dropped in the song. How about "did you ever think that you would be this rich?" with the R in R&B R.Kelly Movin on...

2.The "African beads" phase he went through. Got pics of this. I think it's included in the God's SOn artwork too. okay, almost every questionable rapper in the U>S> has gone through this, I retract questionable coz others like Common have been consistent. Props. But do my amnesia suffering headz remmeber the dinner-plate sized QB chain dude was rocking once upon a time.

3. Must I remind you about the pink suit?

4. Song with Puff Daddy. Check

5. "I know I can, ....Be what I want to be Then somewhere in there he talked about girls you ain't got to be naked e.t.c. Basically an ode to respect yourselves youngin's. Has ANYBODY actually seen that Ouchie Wally Wally video? [/i] That's all I'm sayin. Homie, that LUKE guy from Miami ain't got nothing on this one. Too Short even.

6. "Non of that fake 50cent sh!t" -At his free open air concert in the park in NY. Then in a "I did'nt mean to say that" move plays it down on some, "i was'nt going at him I was just saying what the people in the crowd were feeling." Then Fiddy gets at him on Piggy Bank, now all of a sudden Fiddy has been the 1st to disrespect Nas. ANd I quote He needs a couple of more albums before he's worth me responding -note before the 1st week oof SOundscan numbers for Ma**acre come in. Afterwards, "yeah I'm gonna get him. I don't want to give too much away, but I got a record for him on my new upcoming album." WTF? Make up your mind son.

7. I don't mean to disrespect any Nas fans, or come off as a cocky hiphop newbie all about soundscan, but did that double .....(DOUBLE) disc he dropped go gold? Ill ego u usually have the Soundscan #s. & Fans U DO KNOW double discs count as 2sales for every sale. Don't give me that other story about the buyers coz Common's record is doing pretty well. And is set to do even better as the weeks unfold.

8. Must I remind you about the Pink Suit and the big-a**-Urkel gla**es to match?

9. Must I remind you about a fully sober, non-intoxicated (because they went ahead and actually shot a video for this track) Nas rapping about 100 GIgabyte Laptops 8O . I know the Amnesia is hectic my fellow hip hop heads but don't worry I got you.
Check for the track with the attempt at a catchy club hook off Nastradamus. Oh, sorry, need to be more specific, the one that goes "nasty nas, the esco, the escobar...blah blah..."

10. Quick! How many rappers with a career today have done a song with GINUWINE on the hook.

That's right. Illmatic is one hell of a strong album. For to be able to have gotten away with so many crimes ever since, *shakes head*. Amazing.


1. Note how all the songs you listed are guest appearences he did. Nas has never himself made an R&B record unlike the likes of 50 Cent.

2. Uhm what is so wrong with bling? Does not bother me, does it bother you?

3. Pink Suit...Andre 3000...Common...do you want me to continue?

4. Am I wrong or was Puff Daddy the best friend and business partner of one of the greatest rappers of all time? Oh and how could I forget that a certain Jigga made a track with Puff Daddy before Nas.

5. So KRS be contradictin himself then? And yeah girls aint have to be naked in videos. I mean, just because there were half naked girls in a music video that he appeared in (note not his music video) does not mean he's telling girls they should all do the same...your logic leaves me perplexed.

6. What he was trying to tell you is 50Cent = Ja Rule = R&B rap. He don't do that fake rap and that's a fact! Do you even know that the Nas and Jay beef comes from way before Takeover? Both been on some '...nah aint no beef...' then next thing you know Jay be dissin dude....guess Jay contradicting himself then, or did he just change his mind? I mean, its only human, don't you ever change your mind?

7. For your info, his album got gold status along time ago. In fact, about 2 months after release. And the double album is only counted as one, for example if Tupac sold 10 million All Eyez On me copies then he actually sold 20million (if you x2 for every double disc sold). Also, if sales is a way of gauging performance then I guess Illamtic was his worst album and Reasonable Doubt was Jay's worst...oh and then 50 would be the best rapper alive....yah right!

8. Refer to point #3, I don't like repeating myself.

9. To be honest, you've lost me. What's so amnesiac about that?

10. 10. Quick! How many rappers with a career today have done a song with BABYFACE on the hook (?) *I put in the ? since you had amnesia and forgot it*

Oh and Illmatic >>>>>>>>> Anything Jay has ever put out.
atch this space!

Why this is the GREATEST HIP HOP ALBUM EVER:

Nas was only 17 when he penned this..Boy Wonder indeed..Who else when they were 17 could have dreamt up
"Kidnapping the president's Wife without a plan..& robbing Ni99as like the Ku Klux Klan"...
Actually he was only 15 when he penned that particular line..

SICK

Who wan test?.."any emcee that disagree with me raise our arm"

I rest my case.
