DJ-A- Swizzle says:

To Pimp a Butterfly and MBDTF are definitely classics. other than that i agree

Damon Humble says:

I would argue that any album that cannot be improved in any way should be considered a classic, no matter how old the album is. Also, I don’t think timelessness should even be a factor, as there are plenty of examples of groundbreaking, “classic” albums that don’t hold up as well today.

Chris Gagnon says:

NF has some classics easily

To Pimp a butterfly, Damn, Under Pressure, 2014 Forest Hill Drive, Flower Boy, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, and Nothing Was the Same could all be classics in 10 years.

I think when people use the word “classic” in this context they are saying that it is so good and it will impact music so much that eventually it will become a classic…
