I mean, it’s alright, like…overrated as fuck in my opinion.
This album first appeared in a tweet made on May 2, 2013, revealing a date for the album. People came up with so many ideas for what the album would be like when the rollout would happen, followed by a premiere of the song “New Slaves.” Then, his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, revealed the title of the album.
Oh what a love-hate relationship I’ve had with this album. Some days I enjoy the fuck out of this, some days I don’t, but lately I could never seem to enjoy it.
Yes, Kanye is still creative, especially with the production. It’s pretty abrasive at some points, but it’s easily the best part of this album. His lyrics aren’t the best in the album at all, which is a given for him, but this time a lot of them made me cringe.
This album is so fucking inconsistent, too. I only liked four of the songs, and I found another one to be overrated because Chief Keef was the only highlight of that part. You have one good song, then a skip, then one good song, then a skip, then the process repeats.
Great for what it is, but I can’t really rock with it. I will reply to none of the comments made here.
