a lot of the East Coast albums from the 80's-early 90's.  I never really got into Public Enemy either.

Every single classic album I really do feel a lot. However, I do feel like some are well overrated.

Eric B. & Rakim - Paid in Full: classic no doubt, but best rap album ever? That album wasn't flawless if you ask me. Just amazingly good, but it really can't touch the 36 Chambers, Illmatic, Low End Theory or Criminal Minded.
Public Enemy - It takes a nation of millions to hold us back: too noisy for me. Nice to hear every now and then, but there's a million albums out there that sound better.
Slick Rick - The great adventures of Slick Rick: Really good album and it does have some great songs... But there's some corny stuff on there as well. Not even remotely flawless if you ask me.
Notorious B.I.G. - Life after death: Amazing rapper, but this album had some seriously wack songs on it. 4/5, and far from a classic in my book.[/b]

And most of all... Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique and Licenced To Ill.... Beastie Boys are terrible. How these can be labelled classics, is totally beyond me.

Biggie - Life After Death

There's a lot of people who consider this to be Biggie's best album, but it ain't got nothing on Ready To Die for me.

The rhyming on Reasonable Doubt is so smooth... I just love that album. The classic status of that album can be argued about though. However, it does seem to be without a doubt Jay-Z's best album.

But yeah, those who are saying Life After Death is a classic, must not have heard Ready To Die. That right there is the best gangstarap album of all time to me. Life After Death was somewhat watered down, even though it did have some amazing cuts. Notorious Thugs, Going Back To Cali, Hypnotize, Kick In The Door, I Love The Dough, Ten Crack Commandments, Mo Money Mo Problems, Sky's The Limit, You're Nobody Until Somebody Kills You... Yes, that album would have been extremely really good as a 1 disc, but as a 2 disc album it just isn't all that.

I thought Reasonable Doubt was Jay-Z's best album, but that's because of the flow and the rhyming. The beats are nothing to shout about tho'.

And to be slightly controversial:

Niggaz4Life>>>>Straight Outta Compton

OK, the lyrical content on SOC is definitely several cuts above (due to Ice Cube), but I much prefer the beats on N4L.

Mainly its east coast albums from the mid nineties...can't really get into the production...

Ready To Die...I love all the easy mo bee and premo produced songs...and the lord finesse produced track...but I am still havin trouble playin the album all the way thru..

Blueprint...not remotely a classic to me...

Infamous...its really the production here I cant really get into too much...

Life After Death...I just played the album all the way, but I had to force myself to be patient...besides Biggie's flow...there is too many skippable tracks for me on that album...

Got a problem with the east??

I think Biggies albums were much overrated. Yes he can rap but I wasn't feeling his albums like that.

are you serious?  those tracks on that album were fuckin dope from the 1st book to the 2nd.  Now there are a couple of fillers but overall that shit is banging from beginning to muthafuckin end.  It's hard to make a double disc album sound dope because of so many tracks, Pac did just that.  But it is your personal opinion so it's all good.

i've never really felt any jay-z or biggie albums.  BTW Nothing against the East though because i like Nas, Mobb Deep, Gangstarr, and DMX.
Oh I like this one... One dog goes one way, the other dog goes the other way, and this guy's sayin', "Whadda ya want from me?

I actually agree completely with A LOT of people on here. I dint like Reasonable doubt, Ready to Die, Infamous or Life after Death. If rtd and lad were one album wit  the fillers missed out then yes id agree it was a classic but i just cant force myself 2 listen to the albums all the way through.

I actually agree here..."All Eyez On Me" has a lot of classic cuts, don't get me wrong, but it's almost half filler and half dope tracks.  It's definitely an album that would've been better if it had been one disc instead of two, though I give Pac props for being ambitious.  But I still just don't feel the album as a whole.

As far as the people who have said "Life After Death"...I can understand that as well, but personally, I think that album had far less filler compared to "All Eyez On Me".  I can pretty much listen to "Life After Death" straight through without skipping many tracks (although the 2nd disc is a little weaker compared to the 1st, I'll give you that).

I totally feel ya on the Beastie Boys. Never really liked them. Sabotage is a cool song, but that shit is hardly Hip-Hop.


Well I'm not sure anyone really called License To Ill a classic artistically. It was a nice album for it's time and it's still strong today but it is a fun comedy album and should be seen as such. I still think it's a great album. I just don't remember too many calling it a classic.

Sabotage is a classic no doubt. It isn't really hip hip but the Beastie's weren't really hip hop. Sabotage is like a punk rock hip hop song and it was amazing. The Album Ill Communication was hip hop for the most part though. Sure Shot is a great hip hop song.

Paul's Boutique was a very innovative samples album and it gets it's credit because of that. The MC style of these guys might not be for eveyrone but Paul's Boutique was still a classic.
