Would you consider any of these classics?

Had a younger friend refer to the first as a classic....in which i responded do you mean like illmatic classic...

he replied yes because there is a whole generation pretty much grew up on these mixtapes for a time (even moreso than their albums) ...

i dont necessarily disagree with him either...all of the mixtapes below were huge when they came out only magnified by the fact that the rappers became stars after they were released (which is why pilot talk...which i like better than any of these...isnt listed).

that said, u think any of these are classics/have the potential to become classics?

Wiz Khalifa-Kush and Orange juice
Meek Mill-Dreamchasers 2
Kendrick Lamar-Section 80
Drake-So far gone/Comeback Season
Big KRIT-KRIT wuz here
J. Cole-Friday Night Lights

    So far gone changed the mixtape game. If he calls it a classic I can accept it even though I never liked the tape.

    The rest ain't classics to me.

    Cats still throwing around the word classic too easily. Classic is the new word for good. I've said everything I have to say on this in this thread.

    I'd call gkmc a classing before section 80 but that's not a bad credit at all

    So far gone and maybe Friday Night lights are classic mixtapes in my eyes. Wiz hasn't produced anything nearly as good as Kush and OJ and I'd be damned if I'm listening to meek's nappy braid struggle days of a mixtape in Dreamchasers

    All of those are debatable, so I can't call it. For me, So Far Gone and Section 80 deserves extra considerations since they spawned Platinum debuted albums.

    So far gone and kush and oj because they spawned a new breed of rappers. They may be ass, but you can't deny the impact.
  • DarthRozayDarthRozay Members Posts: 20,570 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Kush n OJ is wiz's best mixtape/album but that doesn't make it a classic...I'd have to listen to it again to fully decide

    Dreamchasers 2 - hell no

    Everything else - possible
