I think Illmatic is good, just doesn't do much for me these days.

Scientifically it probably is better than Stillmatic, but its not my favourite.

The Lost Tapes is great too. The thing with Nastradamus... didn't his label want two albums from him instead of one so he had to rush it out? I'm sure I read something similar.
What's wrong with "If I Ruled the World"?

In terms of Nas best albums after Illmatic, I'd rank them:

1. God's Son
2. Lost Tapes
3. Stillmatic

With Nastradamus and I Am..., there weren't supposed to be both of them. Originally, "I Am..." was going to be a double-album, but they scratched that idea after all of the leaks. After seeing DMX being successful with two albums in one year, the label decided that Nas could do the same thing, and that's how we got "I Am..." and "Nastradamus"

Personally, I think "I Am..." is actually really underrated and only has a few missteps. Even "Nastradamus" has a couple REAL good tracks.

I like I Am... also. It was the first Nas album I owned so I don't know if that's for nostalgic purposes or whatnot, but the prevailant xylophone inspired beats and the nice guest spots I.E. Scarface on favour for a favour and Puffy on Hate Me Now are cool.
It's got the second part of NY State of Mind and some real stand out tracks. Okay, some of it is just confusing and at times ridiculous but as a whole I don't understand the flack it gets. Solid 7-8/10 for me.

Rofl. It was a bit out of place but I ****ing loved that song. I hear that Mary J. Blige wanted it removed so it was taken off. Some say it was because of the whole Jay feud from Ether but idk how true that rumor is.

Lyrically and just viewing from songs stand point. Illmatic is way up the top. My favorite album from Nas tho is God's Son mainly because that was the first album I bought from him.
judging from his other albums tho. I would say his next best would be

1.Gods Son
2.Stillmatic
3.Lost tapes
4.I Am

I Am imo was an amazing album. minus all the leaks and such from it which took the shine away from it at the time. I never knew about the whole double album thing tho.. thats very interesting.

Been listening a lot to the Chronic recently.

The production is 5*, album is not perfect but definitely a classic.

Kendrick has really great technique in terms of delivery, so his words stick out more. GZA is pretty flat in terms of delivery, he's got a unique voice and all but he doesn't switch it up very much; however, his words are vivid and just need a little extra attention. I guess it's like SoundgardenRocks said, it's a mood piece in the sense that it kind of requires the listener to be in the mood to really listen to what he's saying. I think the production gives his lyrics a well suited atmosphere of intensity and depth.

Good call on these ones, definite masterpieces. "Legal Drug Money" would've been close had they cut a few tracks.
