The point I'm making is we would all respect n*ggas more if they just admitted that they dont understand the album, instead of pretending to

When you tell a n*gga that they dont like it, probably, because it doesn't sound like College Dropout or Late Registration they say "Nooo.. Thats not why"

But then proceed to tell you that they only like all the parts of the album that sound like they could have been on the College Dropout

Im not gonna laugh at anybody for not understanding the album (which seems to be the case with MOST people i've heard hate on it)..

But I will laugh at a n*gga who pretends to understand what they're listening to when they clearly dont. Im just like "Ohhh.. You have a Linkin Park song on your iPod somewhere.. Please tell me more about how eclectic you are, and how you listen to all types of music too"

Im just saying, there's some n*ggas who need to be honest with themselves. Not understanding something doesn't make you any less of a man, or a lesser fan of rap music

It was an attempt at destroying hip hop if anything, that type of dubstep/ techo/ whatever beats are used only by trash artists.

but i will say that people think they are on some upper level of music because they like this cd are talking sideways and no better than an underground fan saying that about underground music.

i listen to different stuff and think the album is ok. there is one song beat wise i skip(on sight) one of my other friends listen to everything(including screamo which i have no idea why personally) but didn't like it. knew 2 dudes that are in a rap group that i know, grew up together basically playing the same music which is mostly texas rap. one likes it ones doesn't so it goes from person to person.

i also don't see whats to understand with this album. its him rapping on non traditional rap beats. that is it to me. its like somebody from the east coast not liking trap beats. its basically a preference
If you listen to how he's getting these different genres to speak to each other on these songs, it's something that we rarely see. This album is an experience.

You go from a track like "Black Skinhead" which infuses early 70's Glam/Stadium Rock with early 80's Punk (two genres that are polar opposites) and they are blended so well together on this track..

Then you cut to a track like "New Slaves" which goes from Industrial rock with Metal influences into 70's progressive rock sample from Hungary, with a Peter Frampton style autotune layer on top. Yet it flows together seamlessly.

One last example

Go to a track like "I'm In It" it goes from Trent Reznor/Nine Inch Nails style Industrial Metal into a Jamaican Dancehall vibe and those are two genres which almost never touch, yet Ye got them conversing fluently..

There's things you just gotta be familiar with to see whats going on from track to track with this album

It's not anybody trying to be a music snob or belittle anybody else, but it just is what it is..

For example.. I keep hearing people who dont know any better call this album "EDM" there is very little EDM on this album at all..

But people are using that term, for lack of a better understanding of what they're actually listening to.. And its okay. Once again. It just is what it is

People really trying say we don't understand the album?

It's music mother fu*ker, not a math problem.

You listen and then you decide if you enjoyed it or not. gtfoh

except for the dancehall part i see all these things. i still think its him not being on non traditional rap beats...and if i knew just changing from one style into a soul/gospel sample would have people go ape sh!t

Like I already stated, the people who like this album, liked it before a single review even came out.. You can check the OG discussion thread to wrap your mind around that if you want.

So you stating that people are liking it because of the reviews nonsense..

The reviews of this album are being brought up to prove one point and one point only, that people who listen to other genres of music consistently seem to like this album for the most part..

Which is an observation that was made before a single review was released. They just solidified what people were already saying..
