When it comes to hip-hop I tend to only listen to albums that are considered classics, like the first two Kanye albums or The Blueprint. In general, I don't care when people say an album is classic, but I personally am assured of classic status when an album is praised as much as it is at its release as it is multiple years later.

The Low End Theory

Blu & Exile "Below the Heavens" is the only classic hip-hop album of the past 5-6 years. And I rank Midnight Marauders over Low End Theory, but Tribe is Tribe so it's win-win.

You fucked up

I think one thing that hasn't been addressed yet is influence. What did the album do for the rest of the genre going forward. Obviously an album being influential and an album being a classic aren't quite the same thing -- but if an album isn't special enough to inspire other musicians to perfect their own craft I'm not sure it can be a true "classic"

The list i made before is more based on influence I'd say

Don't know how.. Both are great albums. I just rank the one higher. 8 Million Stories.

One of your statements was opinion, the other was hyperbole.

And i think RJD2 has done better shit than 8, imo

In regards to Kanye, his classics are the first 2. MBDTF doesn't come close.

Have always thought this, always will

Mbdtf isnt very accessible especially compared to his first two. Which is why i dont get how it got people into hip hop aside from acclaim on this site

You mean every single music publication in existence?
