Who has the balls to say that AZ's verse was the best verse on Illmatic. Don't get me wrong I liked the whole album, 5 stars but AZ just ripped it apart and outshined Nas or like Nas likes to say murdered him on his own shit.

Visualizin the realism of life and actuality
Fuck who's the baddest a person's status depends on salary
And my mentality is, money orientated
I'm destined to live the dream for all my peeps who never made it
cause yeah, we were beginners in the hood as five percenters
But somethin must of got in us cause all of us turned to sinners
Now some, restin in peace and some are sittin in San Quentin
Others such as myself are tryin to carry on tradition
Keepin the schwepervesence street ghetto essence inside us
Cause it provides us with the proper insight to guide us
Even though, we know somehow we all gotta go
but as long as we leavin thievin we'll be leavin with some kind of dough
so, and to that day we expire and turn to vapors
me and my capers-ll be somewhere stackin plenty papers
Keepin it real, packin steel, gettin high
Cause life's a bitch and then you die

I dunno... I've always been a fan of the Nas verse on that song.

But, I think the first verse on Memory Lane is the best on the album.

I would co-sign but his last few freestyles haven't shined as bright as they could've (Exhibit AZ was eh). AZ's work from up to AWOL was pure heat. "New York" ft. Rae & Ghost is one of best NY street anthems from the last 5 years.
