"Just dropped by to say that pitchfork's review for this is brilliant. Also to say that this is the greatest rap album of all time and there will never be another as good. It's rap as an idea perfected. He gives the most beautiful and brilliant perspective on what it's like to be a brilliant African American in America ever, and that will never get old."


You know what I just typed this up without thinking, but it sums up my opinion on this album and nas, so I'll just make this my soundoff for the album

The album Illmatic gives the middle class white man the perfect vision of life in a project located in New York, without any of the discomfort and pain associated with living there. A modern day version of Roots if I've ever seen one.

I mean don't get me wrong, this album is superb. But 'white people' do throw this shit around like it's just a story or something. The stuff he discusses isn't really a game, and I don't think most individuals stop to think about it.

I'm guessing you have not actually read my post and just saw a mass of words that referenced this topic. I specifically based my sentiment off of the fact that it's NOT a game. I was pointing out that this IS a reality
and that nas gives this perspective to all audiences in the most artistic way. I refuse to believe that your reading comprehension is that bad and i'll just assume you were not paying attention

You know I was not around when hawks was around, but I keep seeing these references to him. There was this list compiling his facebook posts and my favorite was:

"these fat bitches better keep my name out they mouth before I end their life."

Yeah, I didn't really read your post. The general sentiment with this album is usually 'hey this album is cool hood music 123' and that's where I was coming from with that post. A lot of people listen to this and copious other 'rap classics' because it's trendy or whatever. The fact of the matter is listening to a well planned rap narrative does not make you any more informed of inner city living on a significant level.

My entire point behind this was that as a white male from a completely middle class town, I cannot relate to this in a realistic way. We live in completely different worlds despite being in the same country, and he shares his perspective on america in a brilliantly artistic way and my point is that's valuable. There should be a perspective given from all points of view in this country becuase of the disparity

I like your point of view.

It's only valuable if it induces change.

i agree with what fonz is saying, it gives outsiders a view of life as a black kid living in the 90s in NYC.
