    You're only allowed to love it if you can say that you love Mr. Scarface Is Back at least twice as much.

    Hell yeah. I still don't buy Kanye. Dude has been faking it 'til he makes it the whole time as far as I'm concerned.

  • Fear Of A Black Planet isn't overrated

    THIS is overrated

    Yeah, I think this is it. If you're old enough to remember when it came out you probably thought it wasn't as good as the critics said, and if you're a younger person hearing it for the first time now you probably cant imagine what the hype was for.

    No? I feel like it's held to unimpeachable classique status, when it is in reality far from an end-to-end burner.

  • I would say that about Apocalypse '91...

    to me, a "not as good as I wanted it to be" record isn't it... shit's gotta be big time suspect and held up as some unimpeachable triumph. Like "The Score"!

    I almost said Aquemini before The Fix.

    I've never actually heard Fugees' The Score heralded as a classic

    I have issues w/ dudes who say its better than Nations. And ive read it here at SS.

    Fear has some real "hold the mayo" joints on there, but its still a great album.

    Good "Camoflague Hatt" Thread.



    B.I.G. - Life After Death has too many fuckin songs. Shave that shit down and it could be crazy.
    Method Man - TICAL is a classic but its got lull points. Fuck that Wu-worship at the time.

    And the MOST OVERRATED JOINT in my book..............

    overrated by real headz or casual fanz?
    score would definitely make it for casual but I don't hear anyone who really knows rapps talking about it's classique status

    The Score is Classic. Is it overrated...I can agree.

  • reasonable doubt & life after death are two biggest for me.
