    Nobody is going to be talking about Ye this time next year. It's even more forgettable than Pablo, his last record of any lasting value or resonance was Yeezus. That was his swansong.

    This comment is so hilarious. Jesus christ.

    Nobody was talking about Yeezus a year in, only after people had a couple of years with it, did opinions start changing.

    Hell I remember how so many people thought it was garbage when it released.

    Yeezus was hailed immediately by critics and non-rap fans as a modern classic. Fans of Kanye ignorant of other genres of music were understandably confused and put off by it.

    The critics fucked with it, the majority of Kanye's audience didnt. But I dont recall many saying it was a modern classic, it even had fewer amount of 10s compared to MBDTF.

    Minimalism from the brash and dumbed down lyrics to the production was hated at first. Hell KTT, reddit, twitter etc thought it was garbage at first. My friends certainly only liked Blood on the leaves at first, but then grew to rank it as their favorite.

    The producer list is stacked. I'm expecting this to be a classic. Griselda are putting out amazing work.

    Conway's verse on this is nothing short of amazing. That delivery over that beat always get to me. Raw emotion.



    Even though it was Westside's song I felt Conway really overshadowed him here.

    Really liked this new Jay song over his single WIN. I hope we get more songs like this in the new album:


    Really bummed that King's Dead made the album and took up a space in the album but I can see why TDE put it in the album (album sales)

    Triple Beam Dreams is the best guest spot of the decade

    I love Conway and Benny I just can't get into WSG. His drawn out voice and flow just sounds so lazy, especially when put on the same track as conway or benny. This producer list is insane though so I will definitely be checking.

    This happens on every track with them. I dont think WSG is a good rapper, Conway and Benny on the other hand...

    J.I.D is the only person on that list that deserves to be there and is actually good.

    It is highly experimental for such a large release and it is barely hip hop. The production was great, but it needed more verses for me to give it a B+.
