which album is better to yall

to me paid in full
is better because rakim
was doing things mc's wasn't doing
before like rhyming multisyllabic in the middle
of the bar and not just at the end of the bar
and he was rhyming more syllables
and matching them up them up with the rhyme
and had complex metaphors etc
basically what nas was doing rakim
was doing that before him and the beats
were banging on paid in full.

Illmatic but PIF is so fuckin dope. Rakim's rhymes don't sound dated at all, still have that punch to them.

I aint no joke, i used to let the mic smoke, now i slam it on the ground and make sure it's broke.
