The feeling of a certain time period is something unable to replicate. When an album drops, the cultural events surrounding the music often play a large role in how the album is received.

From the movies that are being watched to the president in office at the time everything besides the music helps determine an album’s impact.

In the latest episode of RealStreetRadio’s The Breakdown, Page Kennedy looks at the impact of the cultural climate in Hip Hop and how it influences what we consider a classic album.

Kennedy also discusses how regions might experience albums differently. We look specifically at N.W.A’s Straight Outta Compton, Nas’ Illmatic, Kanye West’s The College Dropout, Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly and more.

Watch “How The Cultural Climate In A Specific Time Period Can Influence A Classic: The Breakdown” above.
