Re: WF GOAT Rap Album Tournament - FINALS (Round 5)
OK, so seeing as how there are really only two albums up for discussion here...could somebody please explain to me the mass appeal of Nas' Illmatic album. Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike the record at all, but to me there's nothing really new or unique or particularly appealing about it. Not the lyrical delivery, not the back tracks which were essentially just New York Jazz loop laden just like most of the rest of the East Coast acts of that time. The lyrics are good/great, I'll give him that. The blend of street and spirit was kinda interesting but not material that hadn't been touched on before by other artists.
This album isn't even in my top 100, sorry guys. But I'm a fucking eccentric sometimes, so what am I missing?
I love professional-wrestling.
