if one calls it a classic i can't be mad at em...

with him and Pap, they let the moment pass em and the material got dated as the industry shifted sounds and styles, even with the more bar-heavy MC's!

they didn't get phased out, but they lost their momentum when they were at the commercial peaks.

The OG version of it was/would’ve been for sure.

Like someone else mentioned, it came a little too late.

But I fu*ked with the album heavy. Not sure about classic though but it's a solid album, still listen to lots of joints off it.

Speaking of Jus... where has he been? You don't see a lot of credits from him these days. Need him to make a comeback and start producing more.

The songs he was droppin before the album came out was better than the damn album. Album got a few tracks on it that you can tell he was holdin on to. Like that "better way" sh*t. That sh*t hard af. But some of that sh*t is Just Blaze fault, alot of them beats was a*s.

Good album but I wouldn't call it a classic. I do enjoy it though and listen to it fairly often.

A very underrated album. Yes, it was released too late, the buzz was gone but that doesnt diminish the quality of the album.

If the album would have came out when he was buzzin, then it would have been a classic. And as much as a classic album is judged by its material, it also has to do with its impact and the timing of the release.

Victory Lap is a perfect example of a classic album that came out at the right time, made an impact when the artist was buzzin and that people can look back and remember on that time. Can’t say the same about Saigon, but it’s a great album just not a classic one.

Love this album. It got pressed on vinyl for the first time and released this past weekend for Record Store Day. Need to pick it up.

Like someone else said, Just gotta get back to producing. Idk why Just decided to drastically decrease his output over these past few years but the game really needs him.
