the term "classic" has been thrown around too much

Illmatic is a classic
Ready To Die is a classic
Me Against The World is a classic
Cuban Linx is a classic
and The Listening (little brothers album) is a classic (IMO, best album is the last 3 years)
Ressurection is classic
It was Written is classic...
Last of a Dying Breed is classic
Aquemini is classic
The Chronic is classic
Doggystyle is classic
Paid In Full is classic
Radio is classic

Kanye's album is not classic, his first was was close, but no cigar. To say that his album is classic is to put it with the albums above... and it doesnt fit

god dammit i wish classic status wasn't givin out so easily

its a good album, i really wanna hate on it cause of how soft it is, but kanye isn't gangsta nor does he claim to be... but theres alot of songs i skip, its a strong 4 mic album, i wish 5mics/XXL's weren't given out so easily... no way common's album deserved it either

i wish classic status wasn't so eaily given, its insult to the illmatics, the ready to dies the criminal minded's the chronics... theres no way in hell i can put late registration in that group....

BUT as far as is this a marketable album, which is what they base there ratings on... this album will be the highest selling album i give it that... kanye gonna outsell 50 cent within 6 weeks

please, this a very good album but don't call it a classic its an insult to the real classics

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.
A lot of truth in this. The album is not classic. A very good album yes. Classic hell naw. XXL ratings don't mean sh*t to me. They gave Yayo a XL too. XXL has been fu*king up big time lately :thumbsdow

Funny? maybe the first time you listen to the album. But after you've heard the skit more then twice it's annoying as hell. And the idea of a classic is a album that you can keep listening from begining to end without skipping. So those skits become automatic skips. And who gives a sh*t what rolling stones rates? Since when have they even been anything but laughable when considering hip hop music?

yeah this cd isn't hot! why is it, that because somebody on radio or tv ... says the cd is a classic, everyone else thinks so.

A Classic is timeless! these ain't timeless songs... ya'll wont listen to this in 6 mths- the only time his cd has; is in the 2 complete rotations i gave it in the whip to see if it was hot.

and it's not!

People who think that this isn't a classic or who think it is wack, must think that Young Jeezy's album is classic which is not!

Which is one of the reasons that some of your beloved artists arent putting nothing out right now, and or getting top 10 air play.....joe buddens....clipse....little brother....etc. Labels look at this and be like....they dont want substance or skill...throw more fake tales of drug sales and rented whips at these n*ggas...they love that ignorant sh*t...and good groups get pushed back till they sound "right"

You all keep it up and rap is going to start sounding like charlie browns teacher over a beat that sounds like someone is crushing cans........but im sure some of you would love that sh*t. Classic right?

ah ha, so XXL gave kanye a classic rating...no wonder they lowered Little Brother's rating, they can't have 2 albums with substance get classic ratings in the same issue.

Option B
Both This and Young Jeezy aint classics. You can drop a good or great album and not be a classic. Which is what Kanye did. This album does not compare to hip hop classics

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
no, they should stop letting interscope punk them, didn't Yayo get a XXL??? don't even say that his album is better then Kanye's either, cause it is far from it, the day Kanye smaples Britney Spears come talk to me; Interscope is the only people they're in bed with, and you all want to know why interscope get's such special treatment, cause they buy lots and lots of advertising, and probably pay top dollar for it too

Rap is like wrestling....This is some super bullsh*t the only reason they did that was so the little bi*ch doesn't complain for 2 years about how it wasen't all they did was put a passifire in his mouth.....thats why i don't even pay any attention to this rap sh*t...he probably paid them to give him that rating....

I understand the perdicament of artist selling on image and other nonsense instead of skill, trust me. I was a fan of College Dropout (which by the way is NOT a classic album, bu a great CD). Late Registration on the other hand is a huge dissapointment. The Production is weak, the lyrics are weaker and have no depth or intelligence. Its just not good. Its mediocre at its very best. I don't understand how he could help creat BE (arguably a classic) and then make this. I listen to BE without skipping a track (just like Illmatic). I skipped a few when I listend to College Dropout. After listening to Late Registration twice (caue I had to give the album a chance), I can't force my self to not skip tracks.

Oh and for the record, there is no one on this planet that hate Young Jeezy more than me. Him and artist like him are a curse to humanity. Why people buy their albums is the same reason this country is so stupid and doomed to brign about its own downfall.

Jeezy's album isn't a classic, but he does what he does a little more efficiently than what Kanye tried to do with what he did

Respect for your opinion in all, but how is it more efficient than Kanye's album, when all Jeezy says it "YEEEEAAAAH", "HEEEYY" and 'That's Right" on every track? And all he talks about is selling coke. No other type of creativity on his album. On the other hand, Kanye is a way better lyricist than Jeezy, he's more creative, and knows how to put together a track better than he can!
