No way Roots album was a 5 mic album, neither is any other album. Based on this either Roots or Eminem. If you think Ross or Drake's album is worth even four mics you might want to k!ll yourself

Source used to be relevant but now it's part of the problem. This year the only albums that have reached a level of "classic" are How I Got Over and Distant Relatives.

Other dope albums so far this year:
Eminem - Recovery
Scarface - Dopeman Music
Reflection Eternal - Revolutions Per Minute
Big Boi - Sir Lucious Left Foot... The Son of Chico Dusty

If this whole thing is legitimate and is judged based on true modern hip-hop standards, then it should be based on:

Lyricism/wordplay
Flow
Longevity of spins (How long will people be listening to this album?)
Relevance
Album is pieced together well and is conceptually correspondent to all the material.

But we will see. I see Benzino is attempting to put his magazines back on the map. It may be a marketing ploy.

I hope we don't get hustled.

Hustled = Fat Joe 5 mics.

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.

Guarantee its gonna be eminem. I'm an Em fan and I don't think its a 5 mic album. .more like 4.25/5 IMO. But I just have this weird feeling that it's gonna be Recovery.

Roots album was overrated and disappointing to me...

Rising Down>>>>>>>>>How I got over

But I wouldn't be mad if roots get it at all cause them cats make great music. But I think Eminem deserves it cause he's the only one in the mainstream game trying to keep lyricism alive.

Different opinions I guess. Rising Down was solid to me. That black reconstruction track alone IMO>>>>>How I got over.

i'll have to try and give the roots a listen but idk, i can just never get into them. I respect them and all but yeah, i guess i'll see for myself how good it is. Until then, i think recovery may get it and whats with all this praise for ricky ross? Is his album really that good?
