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.

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...
