[B]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.

Her manager chick or w/e went out with Dave Mays. Kim Osorio said so.

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....
Exactly.

em should get it. hes all over the place. radio, sales, popularity. the roots just dont have that pull. most people wont even listen to there album. i havent even heard recovery yet, i hear enough of em on the radio lol, but i know how nice he is and he needs to be rewarded because he brought hip hop back with relapse and now recovery. hip hop was dead in the water till he came back.

how can you say he should get a 5 mic album when you just said you didn't even hear it except for the songs on the radio.

Even though nobody gives a s**t about magazine ratings anymore, outside of Kim's album, their 5-Mic list is legit. I'd probably add more to it like Black Moon - Enta Da Stage, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, The Infamous, Reasonable Doubt.

Only reason nekkid Truth got 5 Mic is because Zino was cool with Kim's manager, and he made sure her s**t was always rated high. La Bella Mafia, even though it was a dope album, got a 4.5.

Other 5 Mic Albums, that weren't originally given 5, but got it later:

Run-D.M.C. -- Run-D.M.C.
Radio -- LL Cool J
Licensed to Ill -- Beastie Boys
Raising Hell -- Run-D.M.C.
Criminal Minded -- Boogie Down Productions
Paid in Full -- Eric B. & Rakim
By All Means Necessary -- Boogie Down Productions
It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back -- Public Enemy
Long Live the Kane -- Big Daddy Kane
Critical Beatdown -- Ultramagnetic MCs
Straight Out the Jungle -- Jungle Brothers
Strictly Business -- EPMD
The Great Adventures of Slick Rick -- Slick Rick
Straight Outta Compton -- N.W.A.
No One Can Do It Better -- The D.O.C.
All Eyez on Me -- 2Pac
you forgot a few of em like 2001 and me against the world (GOAT album IMO) that they added. but the list is legit minus kims s**t. used to be such a respected magazine...

How I Got Over is NOT a certified classic.. It's good no doubt but it has no longevity or replay value after time
Same s**t i said, i played it a couple times and i was like yea this s**t is fire but i cant be playing it all the time. It be cool if they got the 5 mics but i think its going to Ross, Em, or Fat Joe. All them albums getting constant rotation rite now.
