None of them albums deserve 5 mics.Every single song on all them cds ain't raw.
doesnt have to be. there is normally filler on five mic albums. i honestly cant say i like EVERY song on ready to die and im a big fan of the album. i could list a lotta others too. if an albums has like 5 or 6 just stright undeniable songs and some good songs people can get used to , it can become a classic. classic is about quality and longevity, not some everything gotta be perfect or else. thats like saying if illmatic just had one song on it that wasnt "up to par" it wouldnt be a classic. not really...


and how i got over should get the prize, i was bumpin it today. great album

no distant relatives???? also deserves 5 FOR REAL

damn, the "mics" system isnt even relevant anymore, i remember when people used to believe anything the source said about an album...now, people could care less what other people think about the music they listen to....

After lil Kim got 5 mics over common I stopped caring.
Well Common got an XXL for Be at least. If anything Little Brother got f**ked out of the 5 mics more than anyone in 2005. Minstrel Show was very well put together, but no matter how good that album was, Kim was sucking some d!ck to get that 5 Mics rating.

Speaking of which, you'd have thought The Source would've already given a female 5 Mics Like 15 years ago to someone like Lauren Hill. s**t even Kim's first album should've gotten 5 Mics but that only got 3.5/5 Mics.

I've only heard 4 of these Albums, Recovery, Trill OG and Teflon Don and Thank me later. I did not skip one song on Teflon Don by far his best Album. Em grew up on Recovery, wasnt the EM we are use to hearin. Bun B did his thing with Trill OG. I had mixed feelin on Drake but it started to grow on me. But the first time I heard Teflon Don I said 5 mics so imma go with Ross. But ya'll got me wanting to check out this Roots album.

They might as well not even have put Trill OG on there...nobody really heard that s**t yet. (besides the pirates like myself, will be coppin' btw) Of course it ain't gon' get no votes....solid album tho.

I'd give it to Em. Still haven't sat down and listened to The Roots album
