oh yeah it's completely cool to not like mainstrem pop trash artists like drake, eminem but yes it is very cool to like experimental genius gods like kanye and kendrick. That's the easy and cool thing to do these days. Yes drake hasn't evolved much since views but shut the fuck up. A 40 user rating with mfs giving this a zero because the album cover is insulting women ,idk how tho. Bro you gave Donda a 100 which contains verses from dababy, a homophobic and Manson a rapist but no Kanye is very ... read more

You know just like Nas' Illmatic set expectations way too high for Nas and his future records, and Illmatic kept following Nas like a black cloud, you could say the same thing for AZ's verse on ' Life's a bitch' off Illmatic. But I don't get how this album just went unnoticed by the mainstream when AZ did everything as good as the other mafioso rap artists at the time. I think AZ did better than Nas did on 'It was written'. Yes I know this went gold but I still think AZ and this album is highly ... read more

EPMD were always 10 years ahead of other rap acts. Listen to the beats on here and then try countering my statement. I mentioned this on their debut review too that it's always real fun listening to an EPMD record especially if you're an educated hip hop head. The beats on here, you will 100% find at least one beat sampled in one of your fav rap songs. Nasty basslines, erick's amazing monotone delivery, PMD's hard delivery, full of iconic bars and man the beat on 'Please Listen To My Demo', ... read more

As Monie love raps on ' Ladies First'
I'm the daughter of a sister(Latifah)
Who's the mother of a brother(tribe) who's the brother(de la) of another
Plus one more(jungle brothers),
Queen Latifah has to be talented right? From possibly the most talented and one of the most important and influential hip hop collective ' Native tongue'. Just like the other acts in Native tongue, lot of jazz on this too. Probably Jazz rap at its finest. A stretch maybe but the horns on here? So good. The ... read more

yes 75-80% of the production is great. But how much of the credit goes to kanye? Since MBDTF, ye always has at least 4-5 producers on the track which is not a bad thing at all. Just makes me question how much does kanye contribute. He proved me wrong when he gave us Daytona in 2018 which he solely produced so why not produce your albums to solely when you produced one of the best produced albums last decade(daytona). But forget about this shit.
Donda I did not expect it to be this good after ... read more

Ice T deserves a lot more respect. Yeah I know he gets a lot of props from the hip hop community but he always is overlooked when it comes to influence on the culture. Ice T is one of the major reasons why west gangsta rap is what it is right now. Ice T directly inluenced Cube and don't get me started on cube's influence on the west coast and hip hop itself. If you see it in a way Ice T created gangsta rap in the west as he created NWA. ' 6 n the morning ' created ' boyz n the hood'. ' Boyz n ... read more

About

yeah I'm an eminem fan. The only genre I've ever cared about and loved is hip-hop. Which includes trap. Basically rap is all I listen to. Open to suggestions though.
