One of the best hip-hop albums of all time. It's sad seeing hip-hop fans degrade this album, as fans of other genres seem to have embraced this album for its natural aesthetic judging by the reviews I've read.
It's probably going to down like Beastie Boy's "Paul's Boutique", De La Soul's "De La Soul Is Dead", Jay-Z's "Reasonable Doubt", The Pharcyde's "Labcabincalifornia" and Redman's "Dare Iz A Darkside", as an album that won't be fully appreciated by hip-hop fans for its brilliance because of how innovative it was until years later.
The man pretty much solidified his position as the greatest hip-hop artist of all time with this album.
The only track I wasn't feeling Bound 2, apart from that every track was five stars and he deserves to sell over 500,000 units first week.
fu*k outta here with "one of the best hip hop albums ever" statement. sh*ts barely even been out. I have no problem with people liking the album, but you guys gassing it up are crazy. You really mean to tell me this is Kanye's best album, or does he have multiple albums that are considered "greatest hip-hop albums ever?"
It's a cool album and good for Kanye for experimenting and pushing the limits, I respect that. And it very well might go down like some of those other albums. But too many dudes on Kanye's d!ck with this album right now. People always have to exaggerate everything. Theres no way this will ever be one of the greatest hip hop albums ever.
