    This is close. But 2Pac takes it because that's a god tier instrumental.

    This is a headache, by far the most hair-splitting decision I've had to click on today...

    But I'm going with Makaveli, it's impossible to ignore that impassioned performance on that 1st and last verse, with that glorious sample blaring in the background.

    Think I misunderstood the rules, I thought we were voting for the best use of the sample so I went with MATW, but if it’s just which of the songs we like best I wish I’d voted Warning

    Also the reason I gotta go with MATW in this instance. Warning is a great exhibition of Big's brilliant storytelling, but Pac's song is just undeniable imo.

    Gonna have to spin that album again coz it's been a minute :wow5:

    I don't want to hijack this thread into a 2Pac appreciation circle, but man I love that damn album. It's like a love letter to rap, plus it had some of his most meditative material.

    It was the last of him before his chaotic adventure in Death Row, where his own beliefs in those bombastic personalties he conjured became self-fulfilling prophecies. That era was still great tho, but MATW my favorite of his work.

    its about the best song as a whole including the rapping. I can count your vote as the warning if you'd like.

    It was him at his most vulnerable and introspective as you said. He never really tapped into that side post-MATW unfortunately as he substituted in the paranoia and excess instead.

    literally 49 - 51 for me. Pac one is f--king great but I really prefer Biggie's rapping. His storytelling >

    to me both of these are standout tracks on each album. but i think warning is put together a LITTLE bit better. very tough decision though
