    Tommy ain't my motherfuckin' boy
    When he fake moves on a n----- you employ
    Well I'll emirge off ya set, now ya know God d---
    I show livin large niggaz how to flip a def jam
    And ruff up the motherfuckin' house
    Cause I smother you cold chillin' mother f---ers are still warner brothers
    I'm ruthless my clan don't have to act wild
    That s--- is jive, an old sleeping bag/profile
    This soft comedian rap s--- ain't the rough witty
    On the reel to reel it wasn't from a tuff city
    n----s be game, thinking that they lyrical surgeons
    They know their mics are formed at virgin
    And if you ain't boned a mic you couldn't hurt a bee
    That's like going to venus driving a mercury
    The capitol of this rugged slang, is wu-tang
    Witty unpredictable talent and natural game
    I death row an mc with mic cables
    The epic is at a rush associated labels
    From eastwest to atco, I bring it to a next plateau
    But I keep it phat though
    Yo, I'm hittin' batters up with the wild pitch style
    I even show an uptown/mca style
    Who thought he saw me on 4th & broadway
    But I was out on the island, bombing mc's all day
    My priority is that I'm first priority
    I bone the secret out a b---- in a sorority
    So look out for a&m, the abbot and the master
    Breakin' down your pendulum
    As I fiend mc's out with a blow that'll numb the
    A-ppendix, I'm holdin more more weight than columbia
    Index interscope, we rca. clan
    That's comin' with a plan to free a
    Slave of a mental death mc don't panic
    Throw that a&r n----- off the boat in the atlantic
    Now who's the bad boy character, not from arista
    But firin' weapons released on geffen
    So duck as I struck with the soul of motown
    While central broadcasting systems are slowed down
    You're dirty, like that b------
    It's gettin drastic

    Liquid Swords is better. Same way OB4CL is better than Ready To DIe.

    Slept on album would be Outkast, Southernplay....

    I'm going to go ahead and say Illmatic just because of the insane levels of production on there. Liquid Swords has great production, but Illmatic was just a dream team of producers coming together with one of the greatest rappers to ever breathe on a mic in order to create one of the most classic albums in existence. Lyrically, it's too close to tell. I just personally prefer Illmatic. My opinion on this may change over time though.
