I don't get why people tripping. Basically like a jazz or instrumental album. That cat Yanni been doing it for years. Dre just put out a passion project he always wanted to do. His folks like Big supporting him and that's all that matters

I think folk are tripping because itís not actually what was expected. But its a beautiful piece of music. An important piece of art.

To be honest, I like it. Hip hop was built off sampling jazz, 3000 is taking it back to the essence and adding in some bio waves and alpha beats on some Tibetan monk sh1t as well to lead the culture away from the sickness it's currently trapped in. If people don't like jazz, then that's says a lot about our culture more than it says about 3000.

Now, if you do like jazz but don't care for this album then I totally respect that but MOST people critiquing the album REALLY haven't listened. This may not be the most played or celebrate album of today but it will be one of the most sample for future generations of creative for sure. I want to get the vinyl. Overall, the album is therapeutic and on positive vibes.

Yeah, I would probably personally only prefer some bass, to top it off.

But this puts me in the mind of some Ronnie Jordan (RIP), Karl Denson, etc.

It makes perfect sense to me, for a hip hop artist to mature into moreso of a "jazz" aesthetic; along the lines of what y'all have said here.

Actually if you only give this some hard bass, I think it's going to really connect.

Can still be positive, and uplifting.

The album is ass.

I thought he would drop something like ki1lah Priest's projects, being spoken word and thought provoking.

Instead, just spa music...

People do pick and choose what to like and what standards they have for artist. I love Andre I do like Jazz however I find it when it comes to Andre 3000 he gets a pa$s whenever it seems heís scared to drop something hip hop related. He can drop so many dope verses on features but canít provide hip hop heads with an album. Big Boi drops albums, Em still drops albums, Nas drops albums, Hov does but Andre has been making excuses for a decade on why he canít provide us with an actual Hip Hop album

Even though he said in an interview he made it from the "heart" or something like that, it's genius because he'll get support from older business owners, who grew up on hip hop/outkast, and now own a business where it makes sense to license and/or play this type of music in their establishment like restaurants, spas, an office building lobby, doctor's waiting rooms etc. He'll also get support from the older hip hop community in general who don't listen to rap anymore but still try to support older artists.

I hope the younger generation will give it a spin. It does have a calming effect and the younger generation really need to learn how to turn down in a healthy way. I say this because when I was on a road trip with my small children, they were kind of turned up as usual and when I put 3Ks album on (on the humble), the vibe did change and they were calm for the most part for the entire trip. This doesn't surprise me because 3K seems real genuine about being humble and putting out meaningful art and we all know, based on who he is, he was vibing on a whole different frequency in preparation and during the recording of this album.

If everyone watched the movie Idlewild or listened to the LoveBelow side, Dre has been experimenting with music for a while. Elements of 1930s-era blues and jazz music are however featured prominently in many of the musical numbers in that film.

But I look at this current project as being more stripped down. If you look at 3000 as just a rapper, then you might be disappointed but if you look at him the way I do, which is in the vein of somebody like Prince, George Clinton, Rick Rubin, Ye, Ghostface, Mf Doom, MIA, Sly, Jimi, Warhol, Fab Five Freddy, you know he's a visual artist, a creative, a maverick and somebody who zigs when everyone zags as a musician.

This album is really taking you inside the kind of a musical genius at his most bare(pause) moment of reflection. This is a guy who was a member of a group that went Diamond and NEVER had a critical or commercial flop and an artist who made a fortune telling you fame is unhuman and I'm going to play my flute, rock my gold teeth, do my own laundry in public, and be free.

No artist on his level has gotten to do what he's done while keeping his sanity, and those that have are still contractually obligated to keep performing in the circus due to the massive demand of the audience, labels, debts, and creditors.

Andre still has his sanity. I think this is a groundbreaking sh1t considering where the culture is at. Most of this new stuff isn't even music, it's computer-generated- AI noise, this album is like Be Still and Know that I am God! lol
