bam, it can be considered a classic when its used in pop culture 30+ years from now.

Led Zeppelins II is a classic album. i bet you 9/10 people in the whole world have heard a song from that album. thats people from azerbaijan to zimbabwe.


never heard little brothers cd, so nope. kanye's is loaded with filler, next. 50's definitely gonna be a classic in 2022, theres only 3 weak songs outta 19. tm:101 is my favourite album of the bunch, but theres way to many average tracks.


for an album to be classic it can only have 1 bad song per 5-6.
A classic is a classic.....Kanyes album was full of filler?!? n*gga you're BUGGIN!

And so what you didn't hear Little Brothers album...that doesn't take away from the superior quality
Of that album...or the fact it was involved in a serious rating issue with a major publication that reneged on the classic rating of it. The fact that people go back and mention it as a classic and is heavily agreed upon by an overwhelming
amount of hip hop heads only proves one thing.......







You, and everyone who didn't listen,cop, or think like you missed on a for real gem back in 05!

GRODT has more skippable tracks than college dropout

And I dont understand on your philosophy on why an album has to have an impact so much. To me albums that have impact make them more of a revolutionary album that changed the game. in my opinion a classic album is only about the music in it. not about the impact on the rap game.

im not saying it isnt a classic, but what did the carter 2 do to chance the rap game? Wayne didnt really have a serious influential impact until he started dropping some of the sickest tracks in rap on all his mixtapes
I think Classic albums should have some type of overall impact. I kind of look at it like giving something "iconic" status. It has to be agreed upon by a good portion of society.

Otherwise cats can just call anything they want classic, they can call some trash album from a local rapper that they picked up at the swap meet a classic.

from that point the term becomes even more and more subjective which pretty much devalues the meaning of it.

"IMPACT" is the most non-subjective standard for judging a classic album if you do away with that then pretty much anybody can call anything a classic and there's no way you can really say they're wrong simply because you have different taste than them.

College Drop out is NOT a classic. Breathe in Breathe out took that away from it....

The Carter II is a classic.. impact and no skippable track(s)

Im thinking GRODT is classic, impact is clearly there but idk about skippable tracks

I think Take Care is a classic but its too soon to tell.

a classic has to have social impact within its genre at least (at time of release or later),
0 skippable tracks
timeless in the sense that the album as whole isn't exploiting a niche sound that is currently popular at the time its made
less than 50% feats for a solo project.

You got guys coming in here saying that a classic can have skippable tracks lol. Thats bs. I also look at how i felt when the album was released and the way it felt when i use to listnen in to it back then. College drop out and f&l are not classics. I remember nobodysmilimg.com when lupe was dropping hella heat and single tracks by it self that were fire. Then it was a lil backpackers hype about f&l released and when it released on sept 25 2006. I remember listning to it and being a little bit dissapointed. It wasnt the new illmatic i was looking for.

Tracks like kick push , kick push 2 never lies, i gotcha are mediocre and slow down the album.

Now colledge dropout i wasnt dissapointed with but it does have 2 or three weak cuts on it and the skits hurt it.

I've never listened to any album in my life in ANY genre that didn't have skippable tracks.

i don't understand how an albums relevancy determines whether or not it is a classic. so because people were too stupid to appreciate the music when it came out or even now, it's not classic music?

taking minstrel show for example, cd is a classic, front to back, flawless music. because people didn't know who they are doesn't mean the music isn't classic. if you take out the name little brother from the cd and put outkast's name on the album and it sells huge, now it can be considered a classic?
You can call it a "personal" classic, but to me CLASSIC denotes that it had some kind of iconic impact on society. It's how we identify artists and music that set precedents of impact and/or influence with their artistry.

To me saying something ISN'T a classic album doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad album, there's albums out there that I feel are better or I just like more than other albums I know are classic. I call those albums "personal" classics because they just didn't make an impact enough for it to be called a classic.

Like I said above, how would you feel if some guy said this local rapper in his town put out a "classic" album ??

I guess I would use the tree falling in the forest analogy. If a high quality album comes out but nobody knows about it, cares about it, or agrees that it's dope with you. Is it possible for it to be a classic ??

not an overall classic IMO or a REAL classic, it can be your personal classic though.

I'll keep it simple. I agree with the original post. There is NO way you can say College dropout aint a classic. get the whole fu*k outta here.

and a classic album is something you can play 10 years later and its still fresh and all these albums fit that mold.

Nah NAh! You funny bro!

How the hell your gonna say MOTM 1 isn't good.

I will just ignore your opinion on music for the rest of my life.

You obviously have bad taste.

I mean what is your pick for an album that should be considered classic already anyway?

Im interested to see what you got to say. If its some bull my statement remains, if its legit maybe I will take it back.

From the 5 albums that were posted by the op I can say that Kanye's and 50's are classics but they quickly lost their appeal to me. I personally prefer Late Registration and The Massacre. Food and Liquor I never considered a classic, I could just never get into The Cool, The Instrumental and Pressure was always grossly overrated to me. The Cool (the album) I enjoyed a lot more. still pissed I lost my autographed copy. Little Brother's The Minstrel Show I wholeheartedly agree with and I've never listened to entire Jeezy album. He's had plenty of songs I've liked but I can just never bring myself to listen to one for some reason.

How is an album gonna be a classic when its has a skippable track on it. That means its not a classic then. A classic is a 10 out of 10 masterpiece no flaws no weak cuts and has tons of replay value. Saying something is a classic with a skipable track on it is like giving super mario brothers such and such a 10 out of 10 but then saying the gameplay is bad or something.

Also just because no one heard the album dosent take away the fact that its a classic. If ten people heard a album and called it a classic it still is a classic as long as the quality of the music is golden. So u telling me if only ten people heard ready to die that then it wouldnt be a classic? Impact adds more flame to a album being a classic but it dosent stop a album from being one.

By that definition then there's no such thing as a classic album because I've never heard an album in my life that didn't have a skippable track. For instance Blueprint has That n*gga Jigga and Stillmatic has BraveHeart Party which are two not only skippable but horrible tracks IMO. Does that stop them from being classics ??

If Biggie never released Ready to Die and only 10 people at Bad Boy heard it then it couldn't be considered an actual classic. It would sit in the archives on potential classic status.

that's like Michael Jackson never getting signed but growing up an indie artist that made the same quality music and only 10 people in his local town heard his music. Could you call him an Icon then ??

You think if a local artist in your town put out an album as good as Ready to Die but only you and like 3 other people heard it that you could come on BX and call it a classic album ??

A classic album is suppose to hold prestige, recognition, and be distinguished on a public scale.

If we solely go off just what we think is good then anybody can call anything a classic. People will be in here like " Yo I love this album , I can bang it straight through , and it still goes !, so Bow Wow-Beware of Dog is definitely a classic in my eyes ! "

I have bad taste because I said ONE album has skippable tracks.

Your opinion on anything is no longer valid.

Take Cudi's d!ck out of your mouth, take a breath and fall back.
