Something I wanna address-concerning Stillmatic...
« on: February 05, 2002, 06:49:24 PM »
There has been alot of controversy on this board about whether Stillmatic is classic or not........I say the album is definatly a classic, w/o a doubt. Before you reply saying that its not classic, im here to let yall know something.......

Im working on the Stillmatic review right now for Incognito's site [ive joined him and Jake as part of the reviewing staff, so props to both of them for putting me on], and im gonna break EVERYTHING about this album down. The site already has 3 reviews for this album, but im gonna try and make this review the best one. Just thought id let yall know...........This review is gonna be right up there with my E.1999 Eternal review....

i gave it a 4.5 ....which is a near classic rating...for now, i made it clear thoughit might hold the test of time and change to a 5 or a 4, but either way it's an album with classic potential

BIG props for actually contributing to the site homie ;)

I'd definatly say it was classic, even more so now for the pressed CD's without "Braveheart Party". Lookin' forward to peeping your review, & i'm about to go peep that "Me Against The World" review...

I think that if you take one of the 'O's' out of 'Good' it's 'God', if you add a 'D' to 'Evil' it's the 'Devil'. I think some cool motherfucker sat down a long time ago and said 'let's figure out a way to control motherfuckers'.

Its not just you.  It's nowhere near classic.  It's okay but to call it classic is a slap in the face of hip hop.  At least XXL didnt give a XXL rating--good looking out.

It's a classic... I like what one dude said in a previous post that in the future Nas's rhymes will be studied in Universities.

LOL...

If Universities study lyrics from an interpolation of an 80's Tears for Fears songs the world is coming to an end-

And what relevance a university could get out of a song which disses a fellow man because of his facial hair (WHAT?) and his interest in Karate I will never know.  Okay-maybe they could get something out of "Rewind".  Oh yah-thats right-that song lacks punch and just bites the movie Momento.  Hmm...maybe we clap our hands and sing Braveheart Party at a University?   Hmm..working that into a universitys curriculum might be tougher than you think.  The only REAL hot track is Got Yourself a Gun and theres nothing positive or educational in there.  Or maybe "My Country"--yah thats good.  In the midst of war let's diss the country that raised you.  Nice...

There is so  much filler on this album.  3.25 mics--  This is all MY opinion so please dont reply with "YOURE WRONG"--cos theres no right or wrong.  However in my opinion its 3.25--bottom line.

word,  i gotta another question for u suge.  U seem to knock stillmatic a lot,  than what is so great about tha blueprint that it deserves to be a 5 mic album.  Please dont come off wit one of ur normal smart ass remarks b/c u did when i asked once b4 why u didnt like stillmatic

Stillmatic is easily superior to the Bluerprint. Its not even a contest.

I thought the Blueprint was classic when it first came out, but after a month, it lost its replay value. Its a very good album, probaby Jiggas second best [behind RD], but not classic. Stillmatic, on the otherhand is 2 months old and im STILL playing it like its brand new.

My review is almost finished, im doing the touch ups now........

in that post you don't but if you're going to run around praising the blueprint as a classic then turn around and point out all these flaws about Stillmatic, relise that the blueprint has the SAME fuckin' flaws which are worse


and as far as bitches go, i'm not the one who said that Genuwine was "cute" or "Handsom" in my first posts on the board
