Classics that same year (fugees, it was written, all eyez on me)

Dude is really trying to re-write history here.
As someone said, it's easy to see which artist you prefer. Along with the rest of the jokers in here.
@ "Hov slander" and the pedestal you've put this man on.
No one said anything about 90% or Nas having a flawless catalog. Stop with the hysterical projecting.
It's not a trolling conspiracy. It's just a reality that your idol worship will not allow you to grasp.
Jay, Kanye, or any artist for that matter is not above criticism. It's just laughable to see people get all bent out of shape about it.
not tryna reqrite history, nor am i 'idol worshipping' im using the parameters set in this post..dude said minus the numbers, minus the celebrity, minus beyonce..i didnt take any of that into account, casue that owuldnt even be fair to esco...
unlike alot of NTers..i dont think just because i prefer ross, that makes jeezy lame...just because i prefer Jay doesnt take anything away from nasir...i know both their discographies literally WORD FOR WORD...
people in here giving everybody else credit for Hovs success, its the producers, then its the others that paved the way for 'mafioso rap' ..whatever the case, hov been running rap since vol 2...
nasty nas is my dude, def prefer dude to tupac or eminem or some of the other 'greats'...not putting dude nowhere near hov or big tho..nowhere close.
