NY Anthem Results

Written by:

Looks like Nas took this one out by a landslide, with over half the votes going to his timeless Illmatic opener. I have to admit I’m disappointed with Rakim‘s poor showing in this poll, but it was clearly a two-horse race and nothing is really fucking with the ‘NY State of Mind’ beat.

Good to see the little guy win something for once, since he’s not about to get any Best Album votes this year anyways.

Which Track Is The Ultimate NY Anthem?

  • Nas - NY State of Mind (56%, 170 Votes)
  • Kool G Rap - Streets Of New York (24%, 73 Votes)
  • Nas - NY State of Mind 2 (10%, 29 Votes)
  • Rakim - New York (Ya Out There) (6%, 19 Votes)
  • Nas - Talk Of New York (3%, 10 Votes)
  • Muggs feat. Call O Da Wild - New Yorks Undercover (1%, 4 Votes)

Total Voters: 305

What about a poll on “what’s the worst follow-up album after a classic debut?” Nas may win that easily once again!

You think? Actually I wasn’t that mad at “Non-Fiction”.

^ Agreed. That song with Show & AG was dope.

I agree wit mercilesz when Non Fiction dropped i couldnt believe how bad it was… and still is… althougt “Witout a doubt” and the rmx of “North south east west” is dope

that album doesnt even come close to sheeps clothing…however although u have a point about the second nas album, the second black seep album was a str8 debacle

Another straight-up disappointing follow-up was Big Punisher’s second, full of watered-down radio-friendly stuff. Maybe a good M.O.P-featured song and that was about it. Fortunately we can still bang “Capital Punishment”. R.I.P. Pun!!!

Niggas never gave that Rakim New York record its props because The R’s star had faded by then and that song was alone in a wilderness of wackness, but it was an incredible record. Incredible.
