    If by classic you mean better then every other major label/mainstream album out these days then yes I guess you could dub it a classic. However by my standards its a 3.5/4.0 album. I liken it to the last two roots albums that came out. Good but not better then their old material. Dope album though, no complaints.

    8/10 is fair, the production aint that hot, commons good, i woulda prefered him to get madlib to do a soul/jazz vibe

    Its really nice but only time can identify a classic. I love the production on this CD Kanye did his thing and Common was on point throughout. Its loveley to just kick back and smoke a joint to.

    Be is fantastic. Have played it regularly since it came out and I'm not going tired of it, which is a trademark of classic albums. Though I don't want to make that decision yet...

    its pretty good
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)
