You can make a case for Tribe definitely, personally I'd put De La Soul, Outkast and Public Enemy ahead of them.
Being a LAKER is a privilige. Unfortunately some "Lakers" have forgotten that.

No way you're having Stankonia as a classic, the other two without a doubt, but no chance on Stankonia.

Most of the groups mentioned have two classics (Public Enemy, De La, The Roots, Cypress Hill) and some one (Wu Tang Clan, EPMD, Brand Nubian), but most struggle to get three.

lol at dude telling other people their opinion is wrong, i assume your definition of a classic is always correct? cuz i dont really like tribe called quest, id say they had 1 classic album, what are you gonna do about that?

A Tribe Called Quest has 5 classic albums in my opinion, I think they are the best of all time, but I think Outkast is my favorite no doubt, of course you gotta throw the Wu, Public Enemy, and I also wanna put the Boot Camp Clik in there

Before I looked inside the thread, I expected it to be praising The Wu, but I totally agree on ATCQ. Their discography is next to flawless! Only De La in their early days can come close to that in my opinion (4 classics with 3ft High&Rising ,DeLaSoul Is Dead, Buhloone Mindstate and Stakes Is High) but its too bad they became flawed after that... I just wish ATCQ would put out another album, indie style, doing crazy stuff with some soulful samples.

Cause they made 1 good EP, 1 classic album, and then fell the fuck off.  Their catalog as a whole ain't good enough for them to claim that status.

The best thing about Tribe is that they haven't released an album since 1998 and their albums can stand the test of time.  I am a real big Tribe fan and saw them in concert 2 months ago.  I like the Roots more simply because they have released more material.  I don't have all of Tribe's albums but they have made so many classics.  Roots however are still making music so that gives them an advantage for me.

Yeah, De La are definitely up there, but I felt after they stopped working with Prince Paul it kind of went downhill a bit. Stakes Is High was dope but not on the level of their first three and then everything after that has just been ok. 3 Feet High & De La Soul Is Dead are amazing albums though, I love Prince Paul's bugged out sampling on them and the concepts are real dope too.
