Hey Drama Queen, I did what ya asked..

stupid biitch thinks Em has 3 classics.....
"One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know," Alice answered. "Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

1 classic and 2 very dope albums...SSLP was classic...MMLP and Eminem Show are very dope 4/5 albums...He was part of 2001 so he's been on 2 classics...

Yes.  Eminem has 3 classics.  And no, I wasn't introduced to hip-hop with "My Name Is."  I had been an avid fan since the Chronic dropped in 93.

Eminem's 3 albums are superior albums.  Lyrically they are equal to "Illmatic" and the production is equal to "2001".

Slow your roll homie...Equal to Illmatic?...Production to 2001?...Your comparing his albums to THE BEST LYRICAL ALBUM OF ALL TIME...I like Eminem but he ain't seeing Nas in his Illmatic days...And the Eminem show has wack beats compared to 2001 which is 5/5 in terms of production...

Fuck no he doesnt have 3 classics. Do you know how hard it is to make 3 classics?? Even some of the all times greats, who are far greater than Em, dont have 3 classics. Making 3 classic albums is a rarity. And NONE of Em's albums are even close to Illmatic. Whoever says otherwise is a blatant dickrider.

I think Em is one of the best MC's alive today, but I dont consider any of his albums to be classic.

My list of artists who've made 3 classics:

2Pac
Wu Tang Clan

Ice Cube
Outkast
Gang Starr

"Nah, maybe one classic, but definitely not 3"

"Slim Shady lp" came outta nowhere and opened the door for this talented rapper but since then.......his comedy and shock value have became more like hitting repeat on "My name is..."

Eminem has alot of dope collab's & features on soundtrack's such as:
"Words are weapons"
"If I get locked up tonight"
"Don't approach me"
"Bad influence"
"Renegades"
"8-mile OST"...ect

which makes one wonder why he wastes such rhymes on his actual cd's and places filler's instead such as:
"The real slim Shady"
"I'm back"
"Amityville"
"KIM"
"Under the influence"
--------------------
"Business"
"Square dance"
"Drips"
"Without me"
"Say what you say"

Dope beats....but what else..?

Those tracks ImO are not going to last in content and replay value over the years....the subject matter bout his wife and Mother will change over the years and names mentioned in those rap's will be forgotten over time and make one say why the fuck did they get mentioned?.....plus can you imagine a concert in 10 years with Eminem dissin' those peep's?....lol

If Eminem was to place the track's from "8-mile" for those highlited song's from "The Eminem show" then we would have 2 classic's instead of one....ImO

He's not GOD....
He's not Invincible...
He's just a good rapper remember there is plenty of those.
His Fanatic's are prick's who are using his name in a context that will take an entire lifetime to use along side with him.
The song "Stan" is a Gem cause of them...
I've heard worse....and better.
To me he is just another voice of the moment it happen's people this is music..
Where will u be in 10 years?

Eminem is the God M.C. He has three classics. He has made the greatest songs in the history of mankind with "Cleaning Out My Closet" and "Lose Yourself". He is the best lyricist because he can spit multi-syllables and his subject matter is the most original ever. He got second place in the Rap Olympics although he used those lines before but he still was second place. WE COULD HAVE BEEN TOGETHER!

agreed
 illmatic is lyrically (rhyming wise) better  and 2001 is produced better though

sslp=classic
mmlp=classic
eminem show=classic....your a musical scrub if you can't appreciate this album

outkast yes has 3 and then some

but the only wu tang album that is classic is enter the wu.....the w and iron flag were straight up bullshit, wu tang forever was too long and a 4 mic album even if you trimmed of the fat....solo albums don't count towards a group classic, and if you want to know the truth i don't think gangstar have 1 classic......the closest they've come is 4.5, but i won't give any of their albums a 5

I'm a big as fan of Eminem as anyone.....but does anyone else think that when hes on mixtapes, freestyles, guest appearences, that his shit is leaps and bounds ahead of his album shit?  Oh and I think he has only dropped one classic album , with the others being great, but not classic in my opinion

I think as far as his albums go he has 1 legit classic (SSLP), the other 2 are great albums but not quite classics imo, maybe that will all change in a few years though, I mean alot of albums weren't considered classics by alot of people when they first dropped i.e "Illmatic". Classics are like fine wines, they get better with time  ;) lol. Naw but seriously, i'd give Em a classic rating for "Infinite" too, so i'd say he has 2 classic records right now. He's had plenty of classic songs though.




I think that if you take one of the 'O's' out of 'Good' it's 'God', if you add a 'D' to 'Evil' it's the 'Devil'. I think some cool motherfucker sat down a long time ago and said 'let's figure out a way to control motherfuckers'.

He does not have 3 classics.
It's kinda strange argumenting that SSLP is classic just because it was "new and fresh", when MMLP & ES was better both lyrically & beat-wise.

Cuban Linx and Liquid Swords count, because they were basically group albums with Raekwon and GZA on every song.....they're just as much group albums as Enter The Wu is.......

And Gang Starr dont have any classics?? ROFLMAO....Moment Of Truth is one of the greatest albums ever, and Daily Operation and Hard 2 Earn are definatly arguably classics.

lol this board is funny... Ur always callin the debut albums classics but cant admit it if the rapper actually drops another classic.. in my opinion, we gotta give his albums some time before we judge
