I hate saying an album is a classic when it hasn't been out long enough to test time, but I'm 90% confident I can say this is a classic, if not apersonal classic

^ truth....food and liquor lacks replay value...although a few tracks on there still get played on the regular, the album as a whole was nothing spectacular.

Not classic

Food & Liquor is a very good album, but it is not a classic album. Now if you dudes want to say this is a personal classic for you then go right ahead.

BE is soft as muffins

Even if that's the case as an album BE is still better than F&L.

Be is not better than F&L...but thats just my opinion..
edit: as a matter of fact..no...common been in the game..Kanye produced 9 out of the 11 songs
this is lupe fiasco's first album..with a bunch of no name producers and F&L was much more versatile than BE was...and once again..this is his debutalbum..you name me the last person to have a debut album as good as his..(katt Williams) dont worry I'll wait (katt williams)

Then add into the equation the single "kick push"..its a song about skateboarding...i mean cmon..who has a successful song about skateboarding...hewas the pioneer for this whole hipster, nerd, lyricall bs..even though i dont like where its going..u have to give credit when credit is due..

I'm not gonna say it's a guaranteed classic or that its better than BE, but it is defiinitely one of the better debut LPs in my opinion. Mostpeople's first effort as nearly as good as F&L...

Classic. And the only joints off the advance i'll give it to are the intro and ghetto story, and maybe the verses from trials and tribulations.
