Only 1 possibility .... Busta Rhymes - The Big Bang ..... the only possibility, if you ask me personally...past that, this sh*t is str8 fire!

4 Mics amazing overall second best of the year, just drive slow is terrible, paul wall is the worst rapper.... ever.... All hes ever said is candy paint, dime piece and w/e. Anyways its a very good cd. Diamonds remix and we major are great. Brandy joint is great as well as touch the sky and common k!lls it too. Didnt like crack music though good concept but annoying hook/beat. JB did that beat right?

after a complete first listen, and maybe i'll change my mind, this is the most disappointing album in my short life of 24 years. maybe my expectations were extremely unreachable, but i have yet to be blown away by any of the tracks. the first time i heard "diamonds" i was absolutely blown away, but that's it on first listen.

where I think this LP goes wrong is with Kanye's arrogance. He's a musical genius, I don't think anyone can deny how knowledgeable, creative and talented he is. But, from what I can tell, he feels he has to prove how proficient he is on every track. That, in my opinion, takes away from the music. You have nowhere to focus, you're all over the place constantly. Case in point, "Hey Mama." I'm still in love with what I guess is the unmastered version from the unreleased leak. That stripped down sound was so emotionally driven, it just hit you; made you want to call you Mom. Now, it's too mastered, it's too perfect. We're not perfect and our relationship with our mothers isn't perfect, that's the beauty of it and that was what was beautiful about the original.

I know Kanye loves music, and I still think he's an unbelievable artist, but I wish he would understand that perfection in music is unobtainable.

damn Kanye fu*ken brought the heat. sophmore jix= not for Mr. West. just like other dudes said quit putting your mind on k!lling and slanging. every album doesnt have to be thug motivation or thoughts of a f*g**t felon. the more i listen to late registration makes me appreciate music. John Brion just made this cd that much more tighter. Kanye kept this sh*t on some college dropout level. he didnt have too many appearnces but just enough. cd is real laid back and im be bumpin this for more than a minute.
favorite tracks
touch the sky- sh*t makes me wanna get up and make that paper
drive slow- sounds like em's iller than me and kanye and paul wall k!ll the track
crack music- beat is on some crack sh*t but game should of hopped on a verse
bring me down- brandy brought the r&b flava wita nice kanye verse
we major- i shouldnt have to say anything but NAS AND KANYE
Gone- sh*t got some oldskool vibe to it

Honestly i should put every track but these ones stick out to me more then the rest. This CD gets a 5 MIC for sure. Anyone who doesnt agree should get off bx and get off young cheezy's d!ck. Be happy you got this sh*t and buy the damn cd cause kanye deserves it.

Man some of yall think this is better than College Dropout?? Kanye doesn't earn his stripes with his lyrics. He earns his stripes with his beats. This sh*t ain't close to College Droupout to me. The beats are a step down. This opinion is off of first listen, but I just don't hear anything for him to be braggin about.

After listening to this album I honestly feel Kanyes lyrics way more than his beats. However I feel both his beats and lyrics as a whole on this album are a step below his last even though some this is better than anything from his last album. Just my opinion if any d!ckryders give me hate for this on Im gon flip cus the sh*t gets old.

Before you call me a hater and etc... believe me when I say I really wanted to like this album... Especially after hearing the Crack Music snippit... check my other threads in this forum if you dont believe me... but here's my full breakdown.


tracks with the most potential
Hidden Track - Craaaazy beat... but I could care less about what he's yappin about
Crack Musik - whaaaaat was the Game on every other bar in the hook suppose to do? did nothing but get my hopes up.... songs 6/10
My way home - I hope to god this track isnt only 1:00 minute long

Flawless tracks
Diamonds are forever - Borderline PERFECT. shouldnt have been a single tho...NO
Hey Mama - old... but perfect
Touch The Sky - PERFECTION

Overrated tracks
Gold Digger - Song shouldve been on the Mixtape of tracks that didnt make the album... doesnt fit at all
Track with nas - I listened to it 3 times in a row just to see what I was missing... I dont like it... plus its crazy long...

Songs that are just average
Bring me down - Brandy ruins it for me
Diamonds remix - I dont listen to remixes...
Gone - Cam k!lled his verse... track is average
Celebration - Hottest out of all of these but still isnt anything that would be on a classic
Addiction - The track everyone is talking about? I'm dissapointed in this track more than the nas one... atleast the nas one had a semi hot beat

Highlights of the album
Touch the sky - Lupe outshined ye... but they both came pretty correct
Diamonds are forever (I dont listen to singles so this track is pretty much useless to me as far as listening to the album goes)

BIGGEST MISTAKE - Having a track like "Gold digger" on the album but leaving bittersweat off.... craazy

Lastly

Album rating - 3/5

you obviously fu*king read my opinion, hippocrit. so who the hell are you to tell me what I can and cannot say in a FORUM. a place of discussion. and how am I e-thug, you don't even fu*king know. you over there drawing conclusions, like a fu*king idiot. you need an education man. you're probably still in HS though. people should learn to respect other peoples opinions, whether they like it or not. if you had posted a long write up on how you liked it, i wouldn't have told you to shut the fu*k up. you're just another "college dropout"

I don't agree exactly, but I can definitely see where you coming from. The album does feel a little bit overproduced and underwhelming lyrically, maybe not from a message standpoint but just a general lack of....words. Kanye is letting the beat speak for him on most of the joints, and that's not something that's done in hip hop a whole lot, because not a lot of producers rap or have the balls to release an instrumental album (read: it won't do numbers).

I don't think stripping Hey Mama down will make it any better (I'm a hater; I just don't like this song ), but maybe if the production was toned down a bit across the board and he dropped a few more bars that would help balance it out. But doing that would take away what makes the album special in the first place.

Experimental music can't please everybody.

yeah man, i get where you're coming from. but that's just it, i applaud anyone trying to push the envelope. it just seems he tried to push it the wrong way, for at least myself. the perfection thing k!lls me. music comes from the soul, and we all know that isn't perfect. but props for the response man.
