Dope a.ss album...Anyone else feeling like he should have left off La Familia it's the only really mediocre song on the album.
Only track that felt off/weird to me was "BBC" off 1st listen. Sounds like a bonus track, but I know Nas heads would've hated that.

Maybe it'll grow though. It has potential, but that old Pharrell/Neptune style didn't really fit the rest of the album production wise.

How about the "Shocker" track though. Can't nobody tell me that they didn't look at the track list and think "Part II ft. Beyonce" wouldn't be a low point on the album. That sh*t is dope though. And usually B can be annoying.

My reaction going through the album today...






























































I thought it was dope until after Somewhere In America.. Then it was just spotty.

sh*t is musically like an 8/10 but lyrically a 3/10 at best.


Oh and those R&B singers on the hooks just makes me

Tell me how i'm reaching

i will pay pal you 20 dollars if you can prove it in 2 or more sentences
Easy n*gga. Everything you added and everything the original reviewer posted is all a.ssumption that could be made from any rappers simple a.ss lines if you're trying hard enough. That"s a fact. Unless Jay comes out and actually explains the meaning behind such a line, you can only reach for what you THINK the line means. You proved my point in your own post by having 2 totally different views of what the line is getting at, which is why these rappers get away with the lazy bars they do now...because silly fans like yourself will turn the simplest lines into to some kind of impossible riddle that only YOU "get" somehow.

But it"s all good on the $20 as yu will forever have an excuse to how you aren"t reaching here. Jay could tell you to your face that that was just a quick freestyled line that came out while recording and nothing more, and you would somehow turn that into him being some kind of natural effortless genius that doesn"t even know the extent of his own brilliance or some sh*t. I mean, if he freestyles all his verses, hiow could the amount of thought that you two just put into that line be possible during some freestyled bars?

I'll wait....

He doesn't freestyle his verses, he structures them in his mind instead of writing them down. He'll still sit down and think up the sh*t he bout to say. Most people that mimic the gimmick feels it frees their flow up more

"Structuring them in his head" is still considered "freestyling" here. He has said that himmself. He still just spits his quick thoughts down and if it fits, he runs with them. It"s still doesn"t make sense for such a long broken down meaning to be possible with this technique. Which is why most of his metaphors have always been mostly some quick hit of cleverness, nothing nearyl as dramatic as the breakdown of that line that dude is trying to convince himmself of. Come on now.

Heaven, Jay-Z Blue, and Nickels and Dimes "flat out suck"...? Aite, bruh...
Versus, Part 2, Beach Is Better, La Familia and BBC do suck though.

And Jay-Z Blue ain't really sh*t either.

this album is terrible from an originality standpoint. No lyrical content what so ever, i listened to 16 songs and the only line i remember is what i think to be kanye west saying you gon let these dudes sh*t on you?

from a 2013 hip hop standpoint this album is as 9.9/10

So you tell me how i'm "reaching" just to go on to say how you a.ssume or think i would act if Jay told me that one of the ways I viewed the line is wrong because of some supposed blind stan logic..









....
lol

If that's all you got from what I said, then that's on you. Whatever makes you feel better I suppose.

I was gonna buy me a quick dro sac with that easy $20 too, ah well.

It's all good.

All i said was i heard something that the people who decoded the lyric on rap genius...U acting like just because i said decoded and how i thought of something they didn't automatically = me being dramatic...furthermore u go on with some douche bag elitist mind state that people who come up with what a piece of art (film, music, literature, etc) for example, rap lyrics, are silly.....




If i'm wrong please go ahead and explain...or let me guess did you not like the album? or did you
I"ve already explained, it"ll just keep going around in circles on a forum no matter how "right" or "wrong" one of us is.

That quick $20 should be mine though, I will say that. My broke a.ss could really use it for a sac right now lol

I definitely like the album, but I just don't think it's anywhere near as great as people are putting it at on here. But we all have opinions.
