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?
Ross' album bumps but not a classic.

WTF I thought they rate the albums the month they came out or earlier. s**t recovery gotta be 2 or 3 months old by now. What they letting sales and buzz influence their ratings now.

I Love the roots but this aint a classic, and I will tell you why every album they made before this one is arguably better than this one. Especially illadelph halflife and things fall apart.

Big Boi aint capable of making a classic with Outkast, and same is for Bun B without UGK.

The source is just looking for attention.

Big Boi easily had the best album on that list followed by Ross, Drake, then fill in the rest...

Em's album is heavily overrated.... Not bad but ppl give too much credit...

I see 3 worthy albums - Em of course, Ross, and Big Boi. Em made me a fan all over again after I counted him out. Ross always brings quality albums despite his shady past and obviously embellished present, his beat selection and subject matter are 2nd to none. Big Boi's album has grown on me and reminds me of other Kast / Dungeon Fam albums (if it had a few tracks with 3 Stacks it would be a 5 mic album no contest). I have not heard the Roots so I will not comment on that album.

Rick Ross album is solid it has damn good production (Kanye Justice League No ID Clark Kent, the Incredibles, Lex Lugor) , but mc hammer and bmf sound the same, and the album has only 11 tracks. I dont care for the on with diddy. There is a nice bonus track so addictive feat Raekwon. But there is a feature on every song. Half of the album you listening to someone else (Kanye, Jay-Z, Drake, Styles, Gucci, TI, Jadakiss, Chrisette Michelle, Erykah Badu, Ne-Yo, John Legend Raphael Saddiq, Trey Songz) the features fill the albu out well. Also findthe Aston Martin Remix because Drake actually spits a verse on it.

Not my favorite roots album but definitely worth listening too if your capable of appreciating the roots style of music. I suggest listening to some of their older stuff first.

I havnt heard all those but even without hearin all of it Eminem or The Roots the only one that deserve it from that list. Bun B has 5 mic talent but I cant see him makin a flawless album by himself, same goes for Big Boi.

not really feelin the new roots albumn. The lyrics are pretty good tho. I find most of the song hook not that great. most track i probably got bored after a few lisent except probably bout 4-5 tracks that i liked.

Recovery doesn't deserve 5 mic either cause some track are weak, maybe a 4.5. If Recovery doesn't get 5 mic, i think Distant Relative should get it even though it's not on the poll.
