Unlike most long-running extended hip-hop crews, the Bay Area‘s Living Legends still seem to really enjoy working together. Just one year after their more compilation-like Creative Differences, Murs, The Grouch, Eligh, and company return with a more collaborative effort, produced primarily by Eligh and with an average of five MCs on each cut. While the opening, the Madlib-produced “Blast Your Radio,” is the undisputed highlight, Eligh‘s Kanye-on-crack beat for “Tears and Pain” and the lyrical introspection of “When I‘m Gone” make Classic a more consistent, if not better, effort than Wu-Tang, Freestyle Fellowship, Hieroglyphics, or Boot Camp‘s last group albums.
