"ITS BIGGIE'S LAST ALBUM!!!!" *Biggie is not even rapping on one of the songs on his own fucking album*
Puffy really has no shame. The whole album was recycled verses put together with an army of wack rappers and producers. (not all of them, of course)

For me, I take The World is Yours/Memory Lane from Illmatic over any other.
There's Halftime between those two songs you mentioned.
As for me, I love the opening 3 songs to Straight Outta Compton. Title track, Fuck tha Police and Gangsta Gangsta. Love Geto Boys' albums too, so you can take any of them (It Ain't Shit/Crooked Officer from Till Death Do Us Part, Assassins/Do It Like a G.O. from self-titled or Chuckie/Mind Playing Tricks from We Can't Be Stopped).
And of course, Kool G Rap's Road to the Riches. Like SOC, there's three top notch tracks opening the album.
