Everyone check the original kendrick thread for a great discussion about it too. Hip hop's fascination with albums being classics is detrimental to the genre. If someone can tell me why gkmc is a classic, ill listen
Don't listen to it if you don't want, but I bet you people will still be calling it a classic in 10 years... just my opinion

Retrospectively, I think most people generally define a "classic" album as one which seems to be a musical snapshot of culture at the time. Which suggests some people might call some albums "classic" even if they lack staying power. Some might argue records by Def Lepard were the perfect embodiment of the 80s mainstream rock sound, but you could also argue their discography is dated and lacks staying power as a result of some of the pillars of the genre in that decade.
This.

edit: but not only does a classic album represent a "snapshot" of the culture at the time, it also introduces something new to the table... not sure how to describe this... innovative?

You people? Maybe people will, but less than a month after its out is a weird time to judge that

I guess I should have used better punctuation. What I was trying to say is "I bet you, that people will be calling it a classic in 10 years" not "you people"

I understand why you think that calling something a classic when it's less than a month old is weird, but sometimes you have a gut reaction when you first hear something... I could be wrong, maybe it's not a classic... in fact I like Section 80 much more than GKMC, but I think they are both great albums, and I think GKMC will go down in hip hop history as a classic. Maybe it's too soon to call it that, but I'm just saying what I think based upon my first impression of the album... Do I think Kendrick is the GOAT? No, but I think he made one hell of a album(s)
