I appreciated how concise the album felt from the first to the last track, like a big story oppose to a compilation of hit singles (and that can be great too). It just seems to me that people don't rave about this album as much as they did when it was first released.
In my opinion, MBDF is flawless, well that's just from my point of view. But the features on the album, Rick Ross and Nicki Minaj, both ruined a track-Monster.

The production was very good, but the album just does not go under the catalog of "GOAT" albums. We have to wait a few more years for it to even be considered.

Re: WF GOAT Rap Album Tournament - NOMINATION ROUND

I reaaaaally think we should leave out Illmatic, just so there's SOME ounce of uncertainty.

Clipse - Hell Hath No Fury
Brother Ali - Shadows on the Sun
Atmosphere - When Life Gives You Lemons
Masta Ace - Disposable Arts
Killah Priest - Heavy Mental
LOX - Money, Power, Respect
DMX- It's Dark and Hell is Hot
Madvillain - Madvillainy
Royce da 5'9" - Death is Certain
Lupe Fiasco - The Cool


^furious, projects self-image onto others^

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.

That was Nicki's best verse ever and Ross had what, 20 seconds on that track? Didn't ruin it at all to me

Agreed. One of my favorite tracks on the album. She's actually not that bad when she's just rapping or accentuating someone else on a guest spot, it's all her other pop radio bullshit that sucks.


I love professional-wrestling.
