Hunger for more is classic the fu*k they talking about



They said buck album was better


Buck's album was better.... Is Young Buck a better rapper than Lloyd Banks? Of course not. Did he put together a much more solid cohesive CD? Yes he did

big L has classics son

Juelz dont have nothing cause thats on him..so i cant give him no benefit of the doubt

niki smh.. oh she has top 5 talent? go listen to moment for life.. go listen to that bruce willis song or whatever... straight up a.ss

LUDA! man he was so dope in my youth, his music has been awful for too long now though for me to consider him a great rapper

I agree with this list 100%...only thing is I'd add Gucci Mane to it....Gucci has classic tapes but no classic albums...

And I agree with having Nicki Minaj on there.....before she went pop people were happy to see what she could offer...cause she could spit....people were expecting a female rapper whocould fill the void left open by Lauryn Hill, Lil Kim, and Foxy.....and she instead opted to go be a copycat of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga

death Is Certain is borderline.


I hope Fab reads this to....cause the way they broke down Fab is perfect....

That's what I see her potential as. I know my statement is subjective, but that's what I believe from seeing what she can do.
She's nowhere near close to Lauryn Hill if you're talking about top 5 ever.




Are you saying that 2 out of the top 5 should be women

I would say Kurupt - if you count DOGG POUND's Dogg Food album as a group effort. cuz that sh*t was classic.

Nicki wasn't, isn't & seeing the route she's chosen will probably never be a GREAT rapper so I don't know why she's on this list.

Besides that Luda doesn't have any classics either. Top 10 flow of all time but no classic albums (damn shame too)...

I think The Coming is a classic too.

Royce shouldn't be on the list either b/c "death Is Certain" is close enough even if you don't think it's classic.

The author of that editorial's analysis is on point for Jadakiss especially; he sums up Jada's entire career pretty much. Same for Lloyd Banks, Canibus, and Fabolous.

I agree with his analysis on Luda, dude just couldn't make a hands down classic even though Back For The First Time is close classic.

lol @ Minaj being capable of a classic. Beside a few underground tracks and her verse on "Monster" I could tell she was a gimmick from the jump.

Same for Juelz, dude and classic shouldn't be in the same sentence.

I can't hate on him for putting Ras Kass on the list, Soul On Ice's production did take away from the album. I was always mad that the video version for "Soul On Ice" (I think the Diamond D remix) wasn't on the album.

Soul On Ice is classic lyrically, but not overall I guess.

I think alot of you are getting "classic" mixed up with a "personal classic"

I think we skipped over the word "DEFINITIVE" ............


the one on the list that hurt me the most is Juelz, 2005 was his last album and we in 2013

Soul On Ice is a classic. I never got why people thought the production sucked.

I think the production goes well with the album.
