Fab, Juelz & Nicki don't deserve to be on this list.

Royce should be removed, "death Is Certain" should be considered a classic.

Canibus is one of my favorite MC's but I can see how him not having a real high level of commercial success being a reason for not having a classic album

Even though Rip The Jacker was soooooo original.
and Poet Laureate 2 could very well be a "classic" in itself

the fu*k? n*ggas SERIOUSLY think Luda has classics?
Right?

Still waiting on someone to find a thread on here (besides this one), where n*ggas is discussing classic albums and ANY Luda album gets brought up...

I'll wait.

These n*ggas are ridiculous..

Good list. Though there are probably some rappers included that I wouldn't call "great", I think its tough to say anyone listed dropped an undisputed classic. Definitely right on Busta, Fab, Luda and Jada. Shocked that anyone can seriously say Hunger for More is a classic. I was a big Banks fan when that dropped and I remember being really disappointed.

death is Certain is my favorite album from anyone on the list but even then I'm not sure people universally recognize that as a classic.

The real question though, is how many "classic" albums are there? 20? 50? There's no shame in never making a classic album. Guys make the Hall of Fame without ever having an MVP season.

Mixtape Fab is pretty good IMO, the issue a lot of people had with Fab's music is his albums being average or wack.

IMO Jadakiss, Method Man, and Eminem all are way better on guest appearances than on their own albums.

Tical isn't really a certified classic to me and is weak compared to the other Wu Tang solos from that time.

Luda's got classic's. Ras Kass has classic's. Royce has a classic. Busta has classic's. Canibus has a classic. Anything Big L was on is fu*kin classic. Lloyd Banks has a classic. Jada and Fab only ones have great career's without a definitive classic.

Really? Ludacris, Ras Kass, and Busta Rhymes have multiple classic albums apiece??? (I a.ssume "classic's" = classics) Canibus, Royce, and Banks each have a classic album? Big L has an entire catalogue of classics?

I think you're confusing good with classic. Everything can't be a classic - if it was then the word would lose its meaning. You're throwing out classic albums like participation ribbons.

who defines what's a classic tho? I thought Busta, Jada, Fab, Rass, Luda and Big L all had classics.

AND some of these "rappers" on this list shouldn't even be no where near the word classic AT ALL!
