    Return of the G, Rosa Parks, and West Savannah were enough for me. Not gonna lie at first glance Vol 2 looked out of place but it is worth real consideration

    All 3 albums are execptional grade A as far as straight up MC-ing, technical Lyricisim and Rhyming

    I listen to Black Star more, but Aquemini was earth shattering back when it dropped.
    The jungle creed says the strongest feed on any prey that it can
    And I was branded beast at every feast before I ever became a man...

    Already knew I was copping vol.2 1st day and when I heard redefinition I was all in. for black star....picked up aquemini at the same time just as an after thought and was pleasantly surprised by just how dope it was..... All three got heavy spins but black star got just that much more air time for the lyrical jewelry

    Wish I had aquemini instrumental

    Since I am on my meds I can be honest all the albums are great but if we talk quality, lyrics and impact it's between Black Star and Outkast. I don't wanna take anything from Jay it was not a bad album but Aquemini and Black Star is on another level.

    Mos Def got a top 10 GOAT verse on that album if not a top 5. Shit it may even be the best verse ever!
    Lyrically Blackstar was the best album that year.

    Yo, I'm sure that everybody out listening agree
    That everything you see ain't really how it be
    A lot of jokers out running in place, chasing the style
    Be a lot going on beneath the empty smile
    Most cats in my area be loving the hysteria
    Synthesized surface conceals the interior
    America, land of opportunity, mirages and camouflages
    More than usually, speaking loudly
    Saying nothing, you confusing me, you losing me
    Your game is twisted, want me enlisted in your usury
    Foolishly, most men join the ranks cluelessly
    Buffoonishly accept the deception, believe the perception
    Reflection rarely seen across the surface of the looking glass
    Walking the street, wondering who they be looking past
    Looking gassed with them imported designer shades on
    Stars shine bright, but the light rarely stays on
    Same song, just remixed, different arrangement
    Put you on a yacht but they won't call it a slave ship
    Strangeness, you don't control this, you barely hold this
    Screaming "brand new", when they just sanitized the old shit
    Suppose it's, just another clever Jedi mind trick
    That they been running across stars through all the time with
    I find it's distressing, there's never no in-between
    We either niggas or Kings, we either bitches or Queens
    The deadly ritual seems immersed in the perverse
    Full of short attention spans, short tempers, and short skirts
    Long barrel automatics released in short bursts
    The length of black life is treated with short worth
    Get yours first, them other niggas secondary
    That type of illing that be filling up the cemetery
    This life is temporary but the soul is eternal
    Separate the real from the lie, let me learn you
    Not strong, only aggressive cause the power ain't directed
    That's why we are subjected to the will of the oppressive
    Not free, we only licensed, not live, we just exciting
    Cause the captors own the masters to what we writing
    Not compassionate, only polite, we well trained
    Our sincerity's rehearsed in stage, it's just a game
    Not good, but well behaved cause the camera survey
    Most of the things that we think, do or say
    We chasing after death just to call ourselves brave
    But everyday, next man meet with the grave/Great
    I give a damn if any fan recall my legacy
    I'm trying to live life in the sight of God's memory like that y'all

    Say what's up to the broke nigga at the rich party
    Who the fuck let this nigga in?
    Do I look like I give a fuck? Sorry

    I was 13 when these albums came out. I bought vol 2 and aquemini. Vol 2 had them bigger impact records that year... but that aquemini painted a story from beginning to end. That might be my fav album of all time
