you can dawg..classic albums get slept on all the time..Gdep is a perfect example
personal classic is one thing. if you think an average artist can come out with a classic album you are obviously spreading the word way too thin. A classic album would not get slept on because it is timeless. G. Dep has never dropped a classic album at all.
I disagree...I feel your sentiment but mad cats put out dope projects that are classic as hell, but they weren't the dopest of rappers. sh*t many folk think Ghetto D is a classic, and Master P is far from a dope MC, not a classic to me necessarily but if a n*gga said they thought so then I wouldn't disagree. TearDaClubUpThugs is another example. You could make a case for Lord Infamous(who fell off at the time with that Keyzer Soze bullsh*t) but J and Paul are average as fu*k. You can add many albums that fit this criteria b, that's just my opinion though.
wouldn't consider any of those classic albums
a classic album should be perfect lyrically and musically. if the lyrics are only average or worse it isn't a classic record. if so the word classic loses its value. a personal classic is another thing.
