The topic of favorite albums comes up often. During a recent interview with Power 106’s L.A. Leakers, Slaughterhouse members shared their choices for top Rap albums of all time. Among other albums, the group noted that they feel Nas‘ It Was Written is a better album than his more widely acclaimed Illmatic disc.
“That’s like asking me if I was stranded on an island, what three CDs would I take with me,” Crooked I said when asked to name his favorite album. “I’m a non-biased fan. I’m a fan of people from every region, from every market. That would be super tough but I would probably need [Tupac‘s] Makaveli in there. I would need [Jay-Z‘s] Reasonable Doubt and [Nas’] It Was Written. I’m one of those people who think It Was Written is harder and a better album than Illmatic.”
“I share that sentiment about It Was Written,” Budden added, before picking his three favorites. “It was written was a better album to me. There’s really no debate if you slim It Was Written down to 40 minutes. I’ll go with It Was Written. I’ll go with The Great Adventures of Slick Rick and probably [Jay-Z’s] Blueprint, maybe.”
“I gotta say Blueprint,” added Royce Da 5’9. “[Notorious B.I.G.‘s] Life After Death and [Dr. Dre’s] The Chronic.”
“I’d say Reasonable Doubt,” shared Joell Ortiz. “Life After Death and Donell Jones’ Where I Wanna Be.”
