    I think 36 chambers instead of lifestyles would have been a better comparison.

    reasonable doubt is one of the greatest albums ever, and one of my personal favs. jay mixes great production with extremly great lyrics, and great hooks. jay is a great song writer.

    reasonable doubt has more replay value then both of the other albums

    and illmatic is also one of the sickest albums ever, but doubt is just more variance and more musical

    I just don't think lifestyles is in that category kidd, but just my opinon.

    It should be like: Illmatic, Ready to Die, Reasonable Doubt

    But I've listened to Reasonable Doubt and Illmatic from start to finish plenty of times.

    Jay is a bit realer, but Nas's flow is just far too advanced. I mean Jay really isn't even close. Alot of listener's prefer Jay's personality over Nas, but its not a personality contest. Production-wise Jay's CD's have always been better, but lyrically, Jay has never dropped lyrics as smooth, raw, and original as "N.Y. State Mind", "Halftime", and "Ain't Hard to Tell", he just hasn't.

    The bottom line is this if you enjoy Production over lyrics, your going to feel Jay-z more. But if you really feel like rap = Lyrical ability > production..then you can't help but favor Nas.

    Illmatic [best Rap album Ever]..(by far over Reasonable Doubt) [which is in the top 5].

    ?
    When you say sound/style are you talking about production ?

    Because when I grade a CD I try an look past that, I look at the artist flow, lyrics, and things of that nature.

    Illmatic, Ready to Die, Reasonable Doubt....Ready to Die has to be included in my opinon.

    nah, I'm talkin bout flow pretty much. Biggie doesnt have the same type of flow I think in that cd, these 3 have the same type of fast paced flowing.
