It's truely a 5 mics album.
Listen to Dead President II, D'Evils, Bring It On, Can I Live, Politic As Usual, Can't Knock The Hustle... And yopu will understand why he get 5 Mics
Primo's Beat are Dope.
Jay-z is perfect on these beat.
5/5

Hmm let's see:

D'Evils
22 Two's
Dead Presidents
Regrets
Can I Live
Feelin' It
Friend or Foe
Can't Knock The Hustle
Brooklyn's Finest (Jay came off better than BIG if you ask me)
Bring It On
Coming of Age

Not too mention, the great production, Jigga's flow, and lyrics. One of the greatest, if not THE greatest hustler album of all time IMO.

Damn. I voted "its overrated" but i wanted to vote for "5 mic album"
In my opinion, its very good album and worth 5 mics.

u dont have a real good ear for skill........im not saying u dont notice skill at all.....but if u ask this question u must question urself

and just think back then there really wasnt anything out like this it was original not only dope as hell but it was original....so dont let people who tried to imitate his style change ur opinion i hate when people do that

Great, not classic to me. Like 9/10 type deal. Some beats didn't do it for me. It wasn't Jay-z, just some of the beats.

I thought this had some of the best beats of his career...dead presidents, can I live, etc.

and the lyrics were... 8O

can i live:

While I'm watchin every nigga watchin me closely
my shit is butter for the bread they wanna toast me
I keep my head, both of them where they supposed to be
Hoes'll get you sidetracked then clap from closed feet
I don't sleep, I'm tired, I feel wired like codeine, these days
a brother gotta admire from four fiends away
My pain wish it was quick to see, from sellin 'caine
til brains was fried to a fricaisse, can't lie
At the time it never bothered me, at the bar
gettin my thug on properly, my squad and me
lack of respect for authority, laughin hard
Happy to be escapin poverty, however brief
I know this game got valleys and peaks, expectation
for dips, four percent pertation we stack chips, hardly
The youth I used to be, soon to see a mill'in
No more, Big Willie my game has grown prefer you call me William
Illin for revenues, Rayful Edmond like
Channel 7 news, round seven jewels, hand dead in the mic
Forgettin all I ever knew, convenient amnesia
I suggest you call my lawyer, I know the procedure
Lock my body can't trap my mind, easily
explain why we adapt to crime
I'd rather die enormous than live dormant that's how we on it
Live at the main event, I bet a trip to Maui on it
Presidential suites my resedential for the weekend
Confidentially speakin in codes since I sense you peekin
The INXS rental, don't be fooled my game is mental
We both out of town dog, what you tryin to get into?
Viva, Las Vegas, see ya, later at the crap tables
meet me by the one that starts a G up
This way no fraud Willie's present gambling they re-up
And we can have a pleasant time, sippin margaritas
Ge-ge-geyeahhh, can I live?
Can I live?

My mind is infested, with sick thoughts that circle
like a Lexus, if driven wrong it's sure to hurt you
Dual level like duplexes, in unity, my crew and me
commit atrocities like we got immunity
You guessed it, manifest it in tangible goods
Platinum Rolexed it, we don't lease
we buy the whole care, as you should
My confederation, dead a nation, EXPLODE
on detonation, overload the mind of a said patient
When it balls to steam, it comes to it
we all fiends gotta do it, even righteous minds go through this
True this, history school us to spend our money foolish
Bond with jewellers and, watch for intruders
I stepped it up another level, meditated like a buddhist
Recruited lieutenants with ludicrous, dreams of
gettin cream let's do this, against T-D-S
So I keep one eye open like, C-B-S, ya see me
stressed right? Can I live?
Can I live?
Can I live?
Can I live?
Ha-hah, Roc-A-Fella y'all

I can't stand Jay-Z's voice, so to me it can't be 5 mic material. The beats are good, but the album would be better with another MC. I respect your opinion, I just don't dig Jay-Z.
Peace

i actually like jay-'s voice alot its real good for a rapper his voice has alot of emotion to it(no homo)

yo man have you heard d'evils??

if not u need to its 1 of the best rap songs ever and its a premo beat that premo himself says is 1 of his favs so check d'evils if u aint heard it its on reasonable doubt



peace.......

What the fuck is 5 mics? Lil Kim Naked Truth? Please... Like Meth said after the Source gave him 3 mics, "how the fuck ya gonna rate my life, how ya gonna rate my music."
