The Truth With Elliott Wilson: What Makes A Classic Rap Album? (@ElliotWilson) [Video]

Elliott Wilson, of, breaks down the word classic for you. The term itself is becoming both overused and taboo at the same damn time in the Hip-Hop community. We take a look at Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d. city and Nas' Life Is Good. Compare and contrast. Think about other classic albums.

My personal lineup...

The Blueprint
Reasonable Doubt
TM 101
Enter The Wu
Only Built 4 Cuban Linx
The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
Tha Carter
Ready To Die
College Dropout
Late Registration
Lord Willin'
Get Rich, Or Die Trying
The Marshall Mathers LP
The Documentary
Thank Me Later
(yup, I said it...)

Of course there are more, I could probably go for days...but how does Kendrick Lamar's DEBUT fair? What about Nas' Life Is Good?

Do these recent releases deserve Classic status? #BlameKendrick

Take us away YN...

Have You Heard: Big Sean (@BigSean) - "GUAP" [Audio]

This banger produced by Key Wayne and Young Chop is a definite GO! Big Sean delivers per usual in the flow category and the hook is for the win...look for this to be smashing airwaves and 106th & Park stages in NO time. All G.O.O.D.

Rappers, stay away from the covers...please.
