Ironman vs. Illmatic - Illmatic. This album is the soundtrack to the streets of New York pre-Giuliani era. Nas was completely finessed and was flowed effortlessly. It really is the perfect composition. I feel that both the production and rapping on Ironman decreases in quality as the album goes on. And although I don't agree with people who title Illmatic as the "greatest produced album of all time", I think the production is nonetheless very spectacular.
Illmatic - 10/10; Ironman 8.5/10
Supreme Clientele vs. It Was Written - Supreme Clientele. This is extremely close as both albums are extremely high in quality, but Supreme Clientele due to it's significance in keeping Wu relevant through the early 00s gives it the edge over It Was Written. The production on Supreme Clientele is also just that bit better than that on It Was Written, with no beat on that album nearing either "Mighty Healthy" or "Malcolm" in terms of quality. My only real problem with Supreme Clientele is the number of guest appearances as I feel as though he could have easily held down some tracks without any assistance.
Supreme Clientele - 9/10; It Was Written - 8.5/10
FishScale vs. Stillmatic - FishScale. The album provided the soundtrack for 2006 for me. It was also my first introduction to Ghost, and although it has received less replay from me I still regard very highly of the album. Stillmatic to me is extremely overrated and apart from a few highlights ("One Mic", "Rewind", "Ether") the album doesn't stand out from other mainstream rap albums from the early 00s. I do however recognize it's significance as it held Nas down as the King of New York for a short period of time.
FishScale - 9/10; Stillmatic - 7/10
Nas - Head Over Heels
Nas - One Mic
Storytelling - Nas. I know Ghost is highly regarded as one of the greatest storytellers ever, but I don't think he has a storytelling song as great as "Undying Love", "I Gave You Power" or "Drunk By Myself".
Flow - Nas. If we're comparing them in their prime then I'd pick Nas by the slightest. The way he rapped over "The Set Up" still mesmerizes me.
Delivery - Ghostface Killah. Nowadays he bores me, but his brashness really manifested itself in his rapid-fire delivery. (Check out how he ran over Masta Killa on "Wu-Banga 101".)
Production - Ghostface Killah.
Wordplay - Ghostface Killah. Along with Jay-Z I think Ghost has the greatest wordplay.
Overall - Nas.

To be honest I never got what's the hype about wu-tang clan or any of their members in particular. Time to time I always see some dude who claims Ghostface or Method Man to be the greatest mc alive. I always liked the Wu, but to me they are some group who are kind of kings minor league. Like not even in my top 15. Not to be disrespectful or something, I'm just stating how I feel. So for me - Nas wins in every category you've named.
