I don't see how so many people like this album, the beats suck on this.

XXL should not have let Kanye intimidate them, they should have stuck on their XL rating for College Dropout, and they should not have let Kanye punk them into giving Late Registration a XXL rating

i liked his album, i'm wondering if xxl has ever gavin the same person two xxl ratings, cause this last issue they said they'd only given so many xxl ratings anyway. but college dropout got an xxl. late registration takes some time to get used to, i didn't like it the first time i listened to it, but i kept listening and i like a majority of the songs now, which is about the same as it was for me with college dropout, so good for him.

his 1st album was a 5 mic classic but this album was pretty wack, 3 mics at the best, I'd give it prolly a 2 1/2 myself (Knock off half a mic for the anoying a.ss skits). The beats are lack luster and he pads each song with 2 to 3 mins of just lettin the beat ride, and dont even get me started on the hooks, you know it must be pretty hard to just repeat the same word 5 or 6 times, who knew thats all it took to make a classic album. Just more proof to me that people pay for there ratings.

Damn--first Kanye gets the cover of TIME magazine of all things and now this--this must be homie's year. I think the album is a solid 4.5 btw, so I can see XXL's rating. I'm actually more surprised at Rolling Stone giving it 4 stars--those cats NEVER give hip-hop albums that (even the actual classic ones).

This is such bullsh*t. XXL said that they were gonna give Late Registration a XXL before they even got the CD to review it. In an interview with Little brother thay said that XXL called them up and said sorry but we think your album deserves a XXL but we dont want to give two XXL ratings back to back issues. and then Little brother asked who was the other XXL and they said "we expect kanye to drop a classic". So basically they gave him the XXL before they got the CD to review which is bullsh*t because this is not a classic. They are d!ckriding Kanye and G.O.O.D music more than Shady/Aftermath because thats 2 XL CD's that have received classic ratings.

You know the little bits of hate are disqusting at times. I dont see why most of you are so concerned, and unhappy that he gets these ratings. I dont think there is one person in the industry that you all would support as a whole if they recieved these ratings. If it was nas, jay, dipset, whomever.... half of you on here would have some dumb sh*t to say about why its not a classic. I bet some of your grandfathers were the ones mad when the first black man made it into major league baseball. Saying sh*t like " he holds the bat like a bi*ch ". Just be happy he made it. Just be glad mags like rolling stone are starting to step up and take hip hop more seriously.

kanye will never have a classic. he loves being the funny dude with skits and sh*t. and sh*t ruin his albumSSS. college dropout was better than LR to me but i consider college dropout a classic (minus the gay skits)

It's a good album but not a classic by any stretch, it's about a 4 star album out of 5 in my opinion.

man classic isnt a rating its a status IMO sh*ts only classic when 5 years after it drops its still in heavy rotation after like it came out yesterday cuz to me a perfect rating doesnt necessarily mean classic but it does mean flawless thats what XXL said about commons album not that its classic but flawless its a diff

exactly.....for something to be classic it gotta stand the test of time. so only time will tell if the album was timeless. as it stands now its basically flawless
