    What the **** is it with this forum and Liquid Swords?!

    I don't want to name names, but half of the users on here are TCs because they blatantly plagiarise each other and flaunt second-hand opinions... please get off GZAs ****.

    Both are gritty East Coast classics. One is more influential, the other has aged better.

    If we are to judge any properties of both albums, influence and legacy has to play a part.

    Illmatic swung hip-hop's momentum back to the East Coast after Death Row's ascendence and marked an end to the golden age of alt-rap (Native Tongues era & The Daisy Age).

    Granted 'Enter The Wu-Tang' and 'Liquid Swords' definitely played a part in pioneering the raw, hardcore essence of 90s East Coast hip-hop, but it was truly Illmatic that helped re-introduce the prominence of lyricism and jazz-tinged, sample-based loops into the wider consciousness of hip-hop.

    Illmatic.

    Although I will say 'Liquid Swords' is definitely a step above Reasonable Doubt.

    Hola Hovito!

    Don't think I didn't know that this answer was going to get negative attention from the get-go.

    Reasonable Doubt is no where close to the level of Liquid Swords.
