    lost tapes for me..

    i think royce is a lil overrated on these boards personally.. i didnt think the revival was exceptional.. i prefer royces older shit, sounds like he changed his voice up, which isnt to my liking..

    on the real, royce is mad dope, always has been, such a intensive flow and point precise lyrics but nah the revival aint fucking with lost tapes for me, songs like no idea's original, poppa was a playa, fetus, doo rags, black zombies, nothing lasts forever... those are some of nas' best songs period, the revival is a strong joint, especially for a throw away, the taxi driver is niceness, but nas' shit was a little better

    if i'm comparing them the obvious songs would be malcolm x vs ether.. ether's better, only just, and that's from considering who he was going against.. nas lines are a lot more composed than royce's so nas would end up skoolin' royce.. nas would take it imo but he would come away hurt..

    word, i think both are in such a ruthless spot right now, they pen games are just so brutal right this minute, i'd love to see that battle now, wow, so ill, but yeah i'd say nas would get em' just, put royce would still be vicious

    Royce would merk nas in a battle first and foremost

    that wouldnt be fair... Ether wasnt no fuckin better than malcolm X... there were no lines in ether that compaed to proof line about his grill or lurin Bizarre outside wit a cheeseburger... no... The Revival was great... I think Royce is the best in the business... all that dont like his voice dont like emotion... either that or they cant see the progression...

    vote-The Revival

    all on account of the fact Royce talk about shit I can relate too... Nas be tryin to school niggas and that shit is boredom

    royce is a real nice mc no question about it

    i really dont like the beats on this cd for the most part tho to be honest.. taxi drivers beat is fucking horrid..

    my fave royce song is prolly "king of kings"

    yeah Sizzy you livin in the pass

    that was crazy but Apart Of Me and That Your Man are better on so many levels... many not content due to what that was talkin about... but flow, delivery, patterns, imagery everything...
