4:44 is the ultimate rich people rap album. Jay-Z comes forth on 4:44 and makes a handful of bold moves, such as apologizing to Beyonce for being a bad husband.

While most of Jay's best projects were from the earlier years of his career, such as Reasonable Doubt, Vol. 1, and The Blueprint, he has given us not only his best album with 4:44, but his most mature one too. Instead of detailing his experiences with hustling in the streets of Brooklyn, he is giving the listener advice on how to ... read more

My god, this album ended up being so disgustingly boring. Jay-Z shows zero enthusiasm in anything he raps about throughout the entirety of the album on top of these terrible beats,

Magna Carta Holy Grail is a shitshow from top to bottom. Jay is terrible on here, the features are trash, and there are no interesting songs aside from the first song which has a mediocre Justin Timberlake feature anyway. Jay tries to be deep and touches on personal matter in Somewhereinamerica and JAY Z Blue, but ... read more

It's October 22 and we didn't end up getting the rumored Kendrick albums. In place of the two albums that he was rumored to drop, I listened to Donda because I felt that I was not fair with it the first time around.

Donda Chant - I didn't enjoy a second of it. No amount of depth in the track, such as the 58 chants being Donda's age of death, mean anything if the song is ... read more

Watch The Throne features Jay-Z and Kanye riding the waves of their previous albums which have been some of their most commercially successful projects to date. Unfortunately, the album's inconsistency makes it a rough listen.

Jay and Kanye have pretty bad chemistry together in my opinion. They rap very differently and their music styles do not mesh well, hence the mostly bad production throughout the album. There are definitely some hits like Otis, Murder to Excellence, and of course Niggas ... read more

This rating and review are only for the four bonus tracks introduced in the Deluxe version of Watch The Throne.

Once the base album ends, there is a three-minute-long intro to the deluxe album. The entirety of this intro is just pure silence before kicking into the song at exactly 3:00. It's surely a banger and is probably the best song on the entire Watch the Throne album from a lyrical standpoint. Also, the beat is not one of those terrible EDM/pop fusions. HAM is also good but it's less ... read more

mannn it's dope as hell you getting into the weezy mixtapes! I'd recommend that you give W. Carter 1 and LWA more of a chance, they're great. Also, I would give each tape time before you go onto the next to really appreciate everything...good looks tho cuh

About

Welcome! My ratings follow this scale:

100 = Absolutely perfect
90-99 = Immaculate, little to no flaws
75-89 = Great
60-74 = Good
40-59 = Mediocre
26-39 = Bad
11-25 = Awful
1-10 = Borderline unlistenable
0 = Void of any enjoyable content

Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Kendrick Lamar are some of my favorite artists. I also like Kanye West, Travis Scott, Joyner Lucas, and others, but I'm honestly willing to listening to anything.
