kayne west tried too hard to be a concious rapper.. the album is a terribel attempt to become lyrically strong.. he needs to stick to catchy beats and generic rhymes.... kayne needs to stick to producing and leave hip hop to the truely underground
I agree with madchild and what the fuck are you talking about "if all producers...there would be no..." that doesn't even make sense, Kanye is just ripping off what rawkus did and putting a new spin on what the rza did production wise with a whole lotta sugar.
It makes perfect sense, You guys all complain about mainstream rap nowadays and when he said that kanye should stick to producing, that appears to say that if Kanye should, everybody worse then him should to, so the rapping could stick to the underground. If no mainstream rappers rapped and simply produced, the underground rappers wouldnt be so underground anymore.
Money's clean cause we scrub it good. With guns and gasoline we're gonna save the world. Nothing's obscene if we only close our eyes, boys and girls, welcome to this Joyride. -dmb
I like his new CD.... People tend to just hate on music that isnt underground... deversify, kanye has tight producing skills, his raps are decint and i like his flow.... I listen to Everthing From people under the stares , slick rick , guns n roses, mike jackson, three dog night... kanye new cd was sweet with mostly high points
yeah it's crazy good, like nothing else in hip hop right now. a lot of the songs were produced by the same guy who produced fiona apple and they have this sweet, unique feeling to them. it's just a totally unique sound. besides, who else raps about african civil wars for diamond trades? gone and hey mama are my favorites. it was definitely worth the delays.
fuck kayne that fuck is so full of himself he thinks hes the shit and hes not there are so many beter producers out there, and its pretty wack how he stole a pac beat for on of his songs witch cant compare to shorty wanna be a thug
Underground, mainstreem, who fucking cares, it's good music that makes your head bang. This album is way better than his first. he's treated this album like a Babu album, he produced sick beats and brought in all the MC tallent he could to make it hot. he's got Nas, Common, Camron, Game, and Jay Z all on this. It's a good album, I don't care if he's got songs on MTV, that's a bull shit reason to not like and appreciate somebody's music...
^ it will get as good. i was disappointed at first listen, now i think i might like this better. Its less of a party vibe to it and seems more mature musically. And as someone said just because someone is on MTV doesnt mean you cant like them, hell that probably one of my favorite things about him. He's so successful by making GOOD MUSIC. theres NO WAY commons album would have been as successful without kanye producing it. He's got crazy cross over value. So many people are kanye fans and dont even know it.....its sad but theyre loss.
