Classic is a studio album by American hip hop group Living Legends. It was released on Legendary Music in 2005.

Reception[edit]

Dan Nishimoto of PopMatters gave the album 7 stars out of 10, saying: "While Classic never aspires to unify itself around a common theme or the such, it sounds and feels whole because of the common spirit with which each MC approaches their verses."[4] Meanwhile, Dalia Cohen of Exclaim! said: "This is an album that would probably sound dope at a live venue with the energy and vibe that Living Legends would bring to the stage, but for at home listening the mad flows of each emcee gets lost in the background."[2]
