Exactly, 36 chambers was a classic but OB4CL is beyond a classic, personally my favorite album of all time and of course my most played. Played it so much the tape popped. (BTW if you aint never have one of your tapes pop from overplaying, you aint hiphop, hell if you aint never owned a tape you aint hiphop). People massacred me when I said this was better than illmatic. I only felt that way because he had way more replay value for me and this style was bitten to the core after this album dropped.
hasnt lived as good as OB4CL but definitely a classic, changed the game in '94.
