With Nas’ 10th studio album now in stores, I think it’s a good time to bring up one of the longest running debates in the rap game.
I’m personally going with ‘It Was Written.’ I just think musically IWW does more for me. The production on ‘Illmatic’ sounds a little outdated and too New Yorky for me right now. Yeah, New Yorky! ‘It Was Written’ all day.
If you had to pick between the two classics, ‘Illmatic’ or ‘It Was Written’ which one would it be and why? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
