    Ita all in the production which is largely due to q-tip because the origianal infamous album does not sound half as good.

    Though the 'temperatures rising' is damn near identical except for the chorus which is one of the albums highlights.

    Illmatic is the best album ever made.

    Your a follower and thats what the media tells you so you believe it.

    In my opinion iww is better production wise and lyrically

    Silent murder > any song on illmatic

    I gave you power > better than any song on illmatic

    I will admit illmatic is a purer form of boom bap hip hop but that does not make it better

    Off the wall > thriller

    Exact same thing

    I can because It Was written was a micro view of the streets and life where illmatic was a macro view. both are dope classic albums in their own right. But illmatic has general statements about life and a young nas really did his thing. However it was written looked at specific deeper micro themes and story's as nas was learning more about life.

    "But uhh, a thug changes, and love changes
    and best friends become strangers, word up"

    That shit is a biproduct of the maturity of nas between illmatic and it was written. Likewise shit like i gave you power and black girl lost are deeper than anything in illmatic. Now you can say the bars and cohesiveness of illmatic was better. But you can't deny nas reached a new level of deph and focus in IWW over Illmatic.

    yeah its a great track, but it really is all good on that album. any album that can afford to leave apostles warning to the end has to be some other level of fire. Whole album has that nightmarish sound to it and still sounds fresh.

    the Nas stannery is too much on here. It Was written is a great album but The Infamous is a transcendent masterpiece. Hell on earth vs It Was written is a better question.
