    are you saying its not a classic? I mean, its not illmatic by any means because it hasn't had the massive impact illmatic had, but I think its generally considered a classic.

    I give it a 3.5... but I haven't listened to it in months... I did play it often, though... at least through the spring, I kept going back to it.

    Yeah, Illmatic was pretty much an instant classic... and then the internet just further increased its legend... but The Source gave it 5 mics and EVERYBODY who heard it back then (except for a few west coast haters) were calling it a classic.

    I totally agree by todays under 25 crowd Drake has 3 Kendrick Lame has 1 J Cole has 1 Danny Brown has 1 Pusha T has 1 A$ap Rocky has 1 Action Bronson has 1 Vinnie Paz has 2 classic albums. Reality is there is no top 100 album of the last 10 yrs closet album is Lupe Fiasco Food And Liquor were talking radio mainstream. Now if we were taking underground the last 10 yrs there are a lot of album that make to top 250 to 500

    Love Below/SpeakerBoxx
    King
    Dark Twisted Fantasy (undeniable classic on every level)
    So Far Gone
    GKMC
    American Gangster (soooo slept on)

    Just off the top of my head mainstream classics.

    Also, Born Sinner was fantastic this year. Not surprised it gets no love here, tho.
