We told you already about [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm]’s perfect score from hipster site Pitchfork. Now, Yeezy is getting an honor from a publication closer to home – the self-proclaimed “Bible of Hip-Hop,” The Source, has given My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy a rare five mic score!

“Finally ‘Ye joins the elite club of Hip-Hop legends like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nas[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jay-Z[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Notorious B.I.G.[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ice Cube[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]De La Soul[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]OutKast[/lastfm] who have created an album deemed a classic by The Source,” a post on the site’s blog said.

Dark Twisted Fantasy is the 45th album to receive the coveted five mic rating since [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bun B[/lastfm]’s Trill OG.

The review will appear in the year-end edition of The Source. It hits newsstands December 14th.

Another day, another critical rave. Yeezy is living the good life now…
