    I don't think it's that obvious though for NY State of Mind. It's a toss up when you ask people for their favorite song off Illmatic. You always gonna get a different answer. Really the only song I rarely ever hear people talk about on Illmatic is One Time 4 Your Mind. I never hear the song get brought up as the best off Illmatic.
