Feeling the 5 mic list more, I'd add college drop out and 3 ft high and rising and common's BE, I'd remove life after death and all eyes on me, and I'd argue for E. 1999 Eternal
Edit: hell nah, the only Kim album that should've be considered a classic is hardcore
there was a Bob Marley album/compilation back in the very early issues that got XXL as well.
i've got them all except the Lil Kim atrocity
Source lost all credibility with giving Bun B 5 mics, dude hasnt spit a hot verse since like 2002.
XXL list is legit!
For the 5 Mics list I would swap out the Lil Kim & Bun B albums for Hardcore & UGK Ridin Dirty. In the XXL list switch Hell Hath No Fury to Lord Willin
Remove Trill O.G. from Source and Life is Good from XXL
Take out Lil Kim's disgrace to Hip Hop and add Life Is Good and Be on the Source's list.
Take out Lost Tapes (its a compilation) and add Stillmatic on XXL's list
1) Reasonable Doubt got re-rated a decade later, that shyt don't count
2) I'm a Nas Stan, but the lost tapes wasn't a real album
Add Midnight Marauders, Enta Da Stage, Goodfellas, The Awakening, Doe or Die, & E. 1999 to The Source/XXL list
Some of the albums listed are near classic status though. Remove Run DMC albums, Miseducation, The Score, LAD, AEOM, GRODT, Kim, Bun B, Kanye albums, Be, The Fix, Stillmatic, Reasonable Doubt, & BP1 (last five are 4-4.5 mics). Ditto for XXL list + MMLP, HHNF, & LIG
Never listened to KL joint yet
Stillmatic and the Lost Tapes don't deserve 5 mics and Im a Nas fan. Midnight Marauders and Liquid Swords deserves 5 mics.
I always wondered if they got blunted before they listened to and reviewed a lot of these albums like we did when they dropped. has nothing to do with the thread just sayin.
edit: Kim getting 5 mics for fukkin dave mays is downright pitiful. both those individuals are fukkin clowns, kim even looks like a damn clown.
They both need to add Adrenaline Rush, Food & Liquor, and The Cool
they need to take a lot of BS off
1st ballot unanimous decision ,BE is a perfect album
All eyez on me aint no damn 5 mics that album wakk as hell 27 songs with 9-10 good songs
Stillmatic, no. But Lost Tapes I consider a classic and can see why they put it there, regardless of it being "throwaway tracks", that shyt was ill
