Lifestylez is generally considered one of the greatest albums of all time, you can't compare it to the war report and definitely not to the realness.

Really? I thought it was overrated. Big L had mad skills, but when it's all said and done that album's considered great by them so-called "Hip Hop Purists" because he died. If Ma$e died before he retired everyone would be calling Harlem World a classic now.

Lifestylez is one of the 1 in 1, 000 examples of an artist making an LP with 0 filler songs  (filler meaning songs that I skip)



Lifestyles, MAkaveli, Liquid Swords, Slim Shady LP, Infinite, I Need Drugs, Thug Life vol 1, R U Still Down (posthumous), 2pacalypse Now, Illmatic, Chronic, Doggystyle (well I skip the intro on DS), Fatal's first album In The Line Of Fire and the horrorcore classics Doubelievengod by Natas and 6 Feet Deep by GRavediggaz.
 


that's an elite list of albums for any backpacker

But its a pretty big exaggeration to say its considered one of the greatest albums of all time.

Fuck weird shit. I just found an album from 1986 that features a bunch of songs "Supercat" did with "Nitty Gritty".

"Nitty Gritty" was an up and coming reggae singer that "Supercat" murdered and claimed self defense.

But to have them on album covers together is horrible for his family members to always see.

So if somebody put it ahead of Illmatic or Ready to Die you would call them mad?
Maybe it's just a New York Classic like Dogg Food to the west coast.

Except there's no such thing as a New York classic. I'd just call it one of the many great albums to come out of that region....along with a hundred other albums lol.

I wouldn't even call it the Dogg Food of New York. Because Dogg Food to west coast hip hop is way more influential and important than Lifestylez was to New York.

I think Lifestylez will come up more when discussing the greatest Ny albums then Dogg food will when discussing the greatest WC albums.

G Funk is what the west was known for mainstream wise. You and I could list many albums from west coast rappers we think are better than Dogg Food, but does the general populace feel that way?

New York on the other hand has had the luck of having many pure spitters being able to break through to the mainstream.
