    After "Illmatic," I must say that my favorite Nas album is "It Was Written." “It Was Written” shows Nas evolving into more than just a project poet and developing a sense of vision and creativity as an artist. ‘Street Dreams,’ ‘I Gave You Power,’ ‘Black Girl Lost,’ and ‘If I Ruled The World (Imagine That)’ are all great songs from all aspects (production, lyrics, melody, etc.). While “It Was Written” was not as concise as I wanted it to be, it is still a near perfect studio album with great lyrics and great production as a backdrop for said lyrics. Also, Nas’ third verse on ‘Nas Is Coming’ is bonkers and a credit to his lyrical dexterity as well as raw, rap ability.

    God Son
    The Lost Tapes
    It Was Written
    Streets Disciple
    I Am...

    It really depends on what kinda vibe/story I wanna hear...

    And feel with their heart-live"

    Distant Relatives with Damian Marley (Untitled is not far behind)

    I don't think anyone, even Nas himself expressed truly what they felt and truly addressed issues like he in those 2 albums... An musically, Distant Relatives created a new sound that has never been heard before, we in Africa associate with it, but we've always been afraid to add hip hop to it... I think Nas bringing that element to it made us all realize that authenticity comes from being honest with oneself... lol

    I would say "It Was Written".I've always been amazed be Nas's storytelling abilities & I think Nas was at his best on It Was Written.The way he was able to bring human characteristics to a gun on "I Gave You Power" & "The Message" has to be one of my favorite Nas songs of all time."Illmatic" is close but "It Was Written" is my favorite Nas masterpiece
