Close Classics

GetoBoyGetoBoy M.O.B.Posts: 3,826 ✭✭✭✭✭
What are the albums that y'all feel are closest to being a classic but you feel aren't and what do you think it is that's preventing it from you putting it in your class of classics???

    Jay Z's Vol 1. Idk what exactly is holding it back. But there is something off about that album.

    The Black Album. It's a personal classic, but there's a couple missteps on the album that stop it from being a classic.

    The documentary... tainted by the constant dickriding of gunit and the subsequent fall out...

    it also featured one of kanye's best soul sampled beats...

    and one of busta's best hooks (seriously why doesn't he use this flow ever? and now that i think about it, it may have been 50's involvement)...
    Check out the album Circa 83.

    How I Got Over

    Take Hustla and Web 20/20 off it and it's a classic. All the songs are dope until those last 2 like they just threw them on the album.

    Nosign. I think this will be one of those classics that didn't make an immediate impact but its classic nontheless. When you listen to it there's nothing wrong with it. No skippable tracks. It might actually be one of Nas's best albums.

    Having said that, God's Son came close but no cigar.

    Fuck outta here, that Mary J Blidge track was doo doo grits. It was the best Hip Hop album to come out that year, but it was a few tracks away from being a classic. Bout to play that shit tonight, btw.

    Yeah, if you're in the 14-16 year old age range I can see how you might not like God's Son. He didn't talk about hoes, cristal, rims on his truck or making it rain in the club. He talked about grown man stuff that teenagers aren't into. God's Son may have been the first album for adults... Actually, Rakim's 18th Letter LP was pretty mature at the time it came out.

    The only song on God's Son I wasn't feeling was the track Eminem produced.

    Some music just doesn't appeal to teenagers and likewise, some music just doesn't appeal to adults.

    OK please enlighten this 30 year old man what you would consider nas bottom three albums??? Now I know this may be hard since on the ic everything he does is #1 but if he has a top three he also has a bottom three.... But then again I forgot where I'm at the home of over reacting where saying something is one of somebody's worse means your calling it trash smh
