kanye has never the best lyricist. I mean ya he's improved but you all act like he should be on some Nas level shit by now or something. And I actually enjoyed that what up yeezus line.
Yawn. I guess I understand how people might think this album is "new" and "experimental", if they haven't listened to any music outside of common reach and popularity. It's definitely new and experimental in terms of Kanye, but that's pretty much it. Lyrics were so rushed it's hilarious...Chief Keef is fucking shit outside of his "Back from the Dead" mixtape. Most real quote in this thread. This album just sounds like shit you'd hear in a Brooklyn warehouse, maybe 5-7 years ago. No issues if you like this, but if it's blowing your mind, you should probably stop listening to hot 97 for your music fix.
I just talked to Jesus
He said, "what's up yeezus?"
Fucking cringe LOL
and lol @ people crucifying this album for just a couple filler lines
...see what i did there
"You know what the Midwest is?
Young & Restless
Where restless (Niggas) might snatch your necklace
And next these (Niggas) might jack your Lexus
Somebody tell these (Niggas) who Kanye West is"
"i just talked to jesus.
he said what up yeezus.
i said nothing chillin.
tryna stack these millions"
nah, its def a drop in lyrical quality. i mean, Late Registration had songs about how his mom was arrested as a child for racial protesting during the civil rights era. Yeezus had songs about him getting condoms at 7-11. sure it's "a filler line" but the people who are critical don't believe in filler lines. if you get the chance to have your words heard by millions on millions of people, would you really just throw out some "filler lines"? i feel like late registration kanye was like "nah, every single second on this album has to mean something" while yeezus kanye is like "eh, whatever. it's still gonna be a hit". and some people can notice that difference.
