In hip hop ?
I don't know what type of music this dude is doing (I don't really care anymore at this point) but this sh*t can't be the best hip hop album this year. I don't even know if this sh*t is hip-hop...
What do you consider hip hop then? The bullsh*t you hear on the radio today? Because as far as mainstream is concern, besides Kendrick, n*ggas have been horrible and truly copying and pasting each other to a point where sh*t is turning into a Flintstone cartoon montage. And the reason why this album is great to me and others is because he executed a well concept album, which gives you all kinds of elements of different sounds and genres while lyrically being on point, something that hasn't been done well in a good minute in hip hop. You might not get why is good, but to those that do, he did a great job. Didn't think he was going to pull it off, but he did. Plus, an album like that you got it listen to it multiple times to get it, especially if you don't understand the other musical approaches he implemented.
