Re: WF GOAT Rapper Tournament Round 4 (FINAL FOUR)

Again though, that's an influential album for sure, but did it make that huge impact? It wasn't a genre defining record, but it did definite that sub-genre of hip hop, I guess. Is this an arbitrary distinction? I don't know, it's just the way I see it. A record can be important without being a classic, and it can be musically amazing without necessarily hitting that classic status. It's kind of like the original 5 mics rating as opposed to the 5 mic rating The Source gives out now, maybe I'm limiting 'classic' status too much.

I'm not the biggest head by any means, hip hop isn't my background, but maybe it's more like Jeezy helped put the South back on the map? Outkast, Geto Boys/Scarface, Goodie Mob etc were the ones that put the South on the hip hop map in the first place for me.
