When it comes to albums—particularly in hip-hop culture— a lot of times the term “classic” is thrown around without consideration of whether the project at hand deserves the title.

See if you agree with his opinion on two of this year’s biggest commercial successes in hip-hop, Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d. city and Nas’ Life Is Good, and whether or not they live up to the hype.
