Not to hate and no disrespect to any of you who like his music but I've never been a fan of "pop rap" music. Also still holding a grudge against him for not using the madlib beats.
That being said....how's the album? Haha
I think it's interesting to use "pop rap" to refer to him. I can see it previously, but literally the only song on Yeezus that I could see getting radio play would be Bound 2 (and god DAMN that track, beautiful). And to answer your quesiton, I think this is definitely his most idiosyncratic and ballsy release. MBDTF pushed things in terms of concept, but it delivered for both mainstream and more introspective audiences. This one might not be as accessible for the mainstream but is just as honest and raw, just in a different way. Not to sound ridiculous, but if MBDTF was an atomic bomb, Yeezus serves perfectly as the fallout and epoch.

There some interesting sounds for sure, but it just doesn't hit me. It doesn't seem comfortable. It sounds jaded. I guess he is.

I like my hip hop like I like my men: ruff, rugged, raw. WORD UP!

me too, haha- i forgot about that whole debacle...yeah, i'll admit Watch the Throne was pure garbage. but even that crap-album had tracks like "New Day" and "Niggas In Paris"- and that shit's cray.
plus, i'm still holding out on the fact that Kanye's gonna eventually collab with Otis on something...especially if he's going in this more raw direction with his sound.

What was the story with that? I remember reading that there were a slew of producers and guests for MBDTF and some of the tracks didn't make it. Was the Madlib one actually recorded?

you can still kinda hear the influence though, just listen to the way that beat for the song "Otis" was chopped.

I like his line about 300 hoes and where are the Trojans line. Tho, that must of been a little awkward for Kim and the rest of the Jenner's. smh

Knew this would make many people butt hurt. This is next level rap. No College Dropout, even though there are a few College Dropout remnants and during those moments Kanye really shines.
There are leaders and there are followers.

I mean, it is interesting. On Sight and Black Skinhead I think are the best, but overall, for me, he sounds like he is just complaining. Not something I want to put on and relax too.

Anyway, I get it back in the day our parents thought only their era had good music, you know the " back in the day we had the temptations and Marvin Gaye real singers ect. " I realize now that I too am doing the same thing only with hip hop so with that said I will let you kids enjoy it without invoking my elitist attitude
