This isn't true. The album is widely considered to be garbage by the majority of credible rap fans, besides a few of the singles. I'm sure it's a guilty pleasure for a few. I'd contend it wasn't fresh, either. I respect you like what you like, but put it next to pretty much any other rap album mentioned in here and it's exposed for what it is; an unoriginal, disposable pop-hop album with no lasting impact on the genre.
Having said that, P.I.M.P is a classic.
