I gotta go with Ready To Die, he just seemed more raw on the album, which isn't to say Life After Death isn't a great album, I love certain songs like "I Got A Story To Tell" and "What's Beef" and "Notorious Thugz." Ready to Die though was dark, depressing and perfect, suicidal thoughts is like pure poetry. Also even though Method Man is the only guess, "The What" is amazing.

hard to really compare the 2 since they were both classic albums. it really depends on what kind of mood im in to really choose. today im feeling like ready to die though.

I would say RTD hit me the hardest, the songs were on a more personal level.

both are other level classics. Just respect the music, dont pic favourites. I hate pac vs. biggie. i hate RDvs Blueprint and this topic isnt good either. just it is what it is

tough comparison. LAD has more meaning to me because that shit came out the month he died and it really was ill. like, you had this amazing double disc record that dropped on 3-25, while biggie died on march 9th. it was so errie with the album title and pictures and songs like somebodys gotta die, my downfall etc. everybody banged that record all spring and summer. album had an enormous amount of hits even though they wern't official singles with videos and radio play(notorious thugs, the world is filled)

i love that record. such an amazing set of songs. not one skippable track on the joint. wow. cant say that too often.

for all of you that love 'player hater'....some of you might not know this shit:

that just had way too much more meaning to me and impact when I first heard it than LAD. Hip-Hop was strictly dominated by the West Coast when it dropped and Biggie was just so fresh. Must say this too, which many may not agree...most def. GOAT.

Life After Death.

Like Steveee said it also depends on my mood, but LAD just bangs. I dug Big's switch to the whole mafia shit *****s in New York were doing at that time. That album has countless classics, too many for me to list. Great album.
