    i love this album, really pushing it out there . makes you wonder what the fuck jay z was playing at with his latest offering.
    kanye may be a dick, but i am a big fan of his music.

    Indeed he is, but didn't he produce that Pusha T track Numbers on the board, that was suprisingly good

    That wasnt him though, he co produced it with a guy called Don Cannon but i think Kanye produces in the way Dre does. Not fully hands on, just helps with ideas

    Thought it was too good to be true, just didnt seem right for him, he's too wrapped up in being a class A Jeb-end to do such a feat

    Kanye hasnt made a good album since Graduation. Watch The Throne had a few good tracks on it but not strictly a Kanye album, Cruel Summer was the same but his last good solo effort was Graduation. Shame cos he is/was one of my favourites.

    Kanye is an OK rapper. He's a fucking sick producer and would recommend all of his albums for the beats. Yeezus is a hard listen for me though, tunes like blood on the leaves would be masterpieces if he would just shut up. New Slaves has good wordplay. Bound 2 is the best thing on there. Everything else is pure skippage for me unfortunately.

    For me it's: College dropout > Late registration > my beautiful dark etc.. > everything else

    Haha, exactly what I was thinking...

    he is a dick. Some of his music is very good. His first two albums are solid. His third is decent. The rest is irrelevant.

    Not a huge fan of him as an MC (he doesn't really use complex rhymes or even talk about great subject matter) but he is a fucking awesome producer (and his tracks overall are good). Some of the shit he produced on his first three albums and even prior to that as one of Roc-A-Fella producers put him as one of the best producers around at the time.

    On the other hand, I don't really like jay Z past the 90s, yet I actually liked his new album a lot. He chats shit mostly, but the beat selection is very fucking good.
