hm, I always thought I liked Em so much due to bias(he was the first rapper I got really interested in) but I suppose those first two records really were classics. should re-cop them.

Lost tapes is really that good? illmatic leftovers or what?

-T

years between I Am and Stillmatic
I dont count that as an official album though personally

I think supreme clientele is pretty hot, But i think it's classic in a east coast way the way that Kurupt's Tha Streetz Iz A Mutha is a classic in a west coast kind of way.

thanks, will cop that nas

explain the chopped screwed thing again please?

Hotlinking of the image I was using was disabled by the host and the image host used a really fucc'd up pic in it's place  >:(..my bad




Chopped and screwed is a term that refers to a certain technique of remixing hip-hop music by slowing the tempo and applying various DJ techniques such as skipping beats, record scratching, stop-time, and sending portions of the music through stand-alone effects to make a "chopped-up" version of the original song. "Chopped and screwed" music first appeared on late night/early morning hip hop programming on radio stations in Houston, Texas sometime before the year 2000

since 2000 to be honest, there have been a decent amount of 5/5 albums, a decent amount of classics and imo one true all time classic.....nas stillmatic......best album for a crazy ass time...but for me, slim shady lp is nowhere near a classic.......and i wouldnt consider MMLP a classic, though i wouldnt argue with those who consider it classic, simply because i think its em's best effort and everyone came on point on the album, music, em, dre and so on, i just think a few minor things let it down.....i would have given it a 4.75/5 but thats why i wouldnt argue if someone said to me thats a classic, but yeah....i agree with homeboy who said nas stillmatic was the best hiphop joint to drop since 2000

peace

I agree with Disposable Arts, Black Album, and The Fix, all are classics fa sho, add Late Registration and take out College Dropout tho, but you know what, Hip Hop Is Dead is definitely a classic IMO, there really isn't a bad track on that album plus like 5 classic songs, i dont really agree with Stillmatic being a classic tho, but that's just me

so how could u not incluede

xzibit - restless
Snoop Dogg - Tha Last Meal

with those 2 solid albums @ 2000, the west was kinda back for as much as it could.

also a few albums close to being classic :
DJ Quik - Trauma
Talib Kweli - Quality

+

The Team - World Premiere, can't believe how underrated this album is.

BE>Doctor's Advocate.  Album has more meaning and better production plus the intro has got to be the best intro of all time.  The closer, Its Your World is awesome too.  Other albums worth mentioning:


Jay-Z-Black Album
The Roots-Phrenology
Gangstarr-The Ownerz
Little Brother-Minstrel Show

I would almost put Fab's Street Dreams in here because it is solid but it is too bubble gum to be mentioned.

Defining a classic is a tough thing to do... Most definately a great bunch of excellent hiphop albums have been mentioned so far, but are they all really classics? Maybe defining something as a classic is a matter of personal taste, but isn't the term supposed to indicate how much one album meant to the entire genre at a time? That would mean classics are constantly put out, whether it be good or bad ones. I would personally have loved to see "dead prez - Lets get free" being mentioned here, but that's simply NOT a classic album as it had little influence on the state of rap music. Not just every great album is a classic in my eyes. A classic has it's own place in history. You're not telling me Lil Wayne's The Carter is going down like that.

i'd definately include stankonia , disposable arts, marshall mathers lp,and  stillmatic


i have a tought time still to this day calling the blueprint...or any jay-z album for that matter classic.
 
college drop out is a nice record , no doubt, but it's only for it's production, and when i think of classic albums production wise...i think chronic, doggystyle, 2001, it takes a nation of millions, ect. it's not on that level of greatness to be considered classic

there's a few underground releases as well, that i've been hearing that are very very quality but lack that certain something to be considered classic imo. either the production is very dry, or the delivery is too monotone and robotic.

hip hop is a weak genre of music when it comes to classics IMO

i don't know about that, which genre has generated lots of classics lately?

as far as rock...mars volta's deloused in the comatorium and.....wilco's yankee hotel foxtrot....I feel metric's old world underground where are you now? is classic....everything Tool does is classic...Hm....it's weird...I feel what you're saying now that I had a thought train about it, with rock classics...if it's a classic, it ain't debatable...with rap ones its mad debatable....damn...some shit to think about. -T

Fact is, when you're discussing classics, its mostly the same records always being mentioned. Shouldn't we simply consider College Dropout, Be and The Documentary all classics, if that's the case?
