Agree with everything aside from Big L. And notice that these are almost (if not) all punchline rappers. That's because punchline rappers don't know how to make TRACKS with diverse content. And even if they try to do that, they give you that punchline flow which doesn't work for most other kinds of tracks.

Hunger For More is classic. It is one of the best G-Unit releases. Luda has two decent albums, Chicken and Beer is close to classic, if not classic, and though people hate it, Theater of the Mind was solid. Nicki's albums were garbage. She cant rap worth two dead flies. The reality of it is that nowadays, its not about a classic album its about a hit single. I think that's what the rap game has shifted to which means out of 15 tracks, your going to have, intro, outro, 3 bangers, 2 singles, 3 skits, and 5 filler tracks sprinkled into the mix. Its a damn.

D.I.C. is special, but yeah, I could understand how people can say it wasn't classic. I had that album on heavy rotation for a year and a half. Absolutely OD'd on that sh*t, and still catch some things that make me love the album all over again, that I didn't notice before.

That Heartbeat track Kanye produced would have solidified that album as a classic. I think it fit perfectly with the whole vibe of it.

I still seethat as Royce's most cohesive project to date. Hope he can feed off him and Marshall being on the same page again, and maybe do a real sequel(sense he said S.I.C. wasn't it.) I'm fine with there not being a full BmE album coming down the pipeline. Prefer Nickel solo anyway.

It's like, I could go in the lab
And try to write somethin that's nice or bright but I will be holdin back
My scripture's in the dark
Deep-rooted soldier inside my soul, uncontrollable temper like "The Hulk's"

you realize a platinum album is not subjective right? It's based off actual sales. You must be confusing him with Rick Ross or something.


With that said no he doesnt have any classics but he does have platinum albums as in plural

Minaj definitely don't belong. Still can't believe people think she can spit. Or did ya'll thinking Itty Bitty Piggy was hot sh*t?

Also, I would argue and say Hunger For More by Lloyd Banks is a classic. I'm not even a Banks stan, but that whole album, front to back was definitely a classic. I thought Rotten Apple was horrible and HFM2 was a good comeback. Real Talk by Fabolous was the closest he ever came to a classic. Jadakiss was close with his second album. Busta's The Big Bang Theory should've been a classic, but he went away from Dre's beats and some of the cuts that didn't make the tracklist are some hardass joints.

Y'all n*ggaz are buggin the only rapper on that list that has any album that is worthy of a classic is Luda with back for the first time
Thank you man, I been telling n*ggas this was Luda's classic album didn't skip one track on that album what so ever.

Props to the other BX n*ggas, that said Luda had a classic as well on this thread, you can make the argument for Santana's album too.
