Not that all albums are "concept albums" (American Gangster, The Cool, etc, etc...) but I like to sometimes think of albums having an overlaying theme. With that said, I always thought that 36 Chambers was the bust out the gate, her we come, it aint safe no more album, that was best summed up by Bring The Ruckus, Ain't nuthin ta Fuck Wit, Protect Ya Neck and so on. Forever was the 5%, wisdom, knowledge understanding yadda yadda yadda album with its own thematic tracks. However I failed to see a running theme in The W, Iron Flag, and 8 Diagrams. Anyone come up with one?
