^is anyone above this post serious?

This song and video... somebody said "wow he has so much swagger"
Are you serious? thats a very homosexual comment you just made. I hope you know that.

I think the replies on this thread really show why this is a dying hobby and why hip hop is on its way to being a dying genre.

Im pretty sure graduation is gonna be better than this bland song and overly underbudgeted video.

If they were fully confident in the quality of the video they wouldnt have put "DIRECTED BY HYPE WILLIAMS! OH EM GEE!" under it

that would equal the freshest group alive period.


im sorry, but lupe is wack. They'd have dope beats but none of em is a good enough rapper to put them as the freshest group alive. Still, it would be a alright group. crazy production with kanye and pharrell together. If you replaced common with lupe, now thats a group!&)

Mixtape is pretty dope.

Uh oh...

Stronger is pretty bad, and I think CanT Tell Me Nothing is just ok..

If those songs are on the album....I dunno...

Cmon, a group with Kanye, Pharell and Lupe = a group with one good MC. If they made it i expect some good beats and my finger pressing FF untill I get to Lupes verse. Kanye and Pharell Might as well just collab on a LUpe album and cut out the middle man.

For some strange reason I like the video , even though this is not one of his singles its still a cool song as it grows on you. Hype did do this video was very low budget that tells you his single "Stronger" is going to be a expensive as hell

Overall : Nice Vid / Avg Lyrics

** OFFICIAL ** Kanye West Graduation Album Thread!
Mods should merge everything bout kwest graduation in here
I just downloaded the "Cant Tell Me Nothing" mix tape the snippets are pretty cool the best song it to me is "US Placers" with lupe and pharrell.

Personally i think this album is going to do good numbers on the chart and thats what hiphop needs right now.
I mean "Late Registration" Almost went Platinum in one week so i think this album could either do that or do even better. With his single "Stronger" I think it will give it that extra push to do good numbers nevermind that he has Daft Punk on the song also. I know he def has 50 cent a little worried that he had to push his album back wonder why? lol

Voice your opinions on the album

Dude. If any one person out of the three of them was the MC it would be Lupe. Ur definitly trippin with that comment. But Common would be a nice edition to something like this. Esp. with kanye's and Pharrell's production kickin out fire.

Guarantee that Graduation is going to be incredible, from the two tracks I've heard. Kanye does a good job of keeping shit discreet, so we won't know when the albums officially going to drop, and whose going to be featured on it until it drops.

the interludes are jokes.. doubt Stronger is on the album, and if it is, it's probably one of those ''Hidden Tracks'' or Exclusive to Japan etc..

wtf is pharrelll talking about at the end of Us Placers? anyone mind explaining that..

I think it will be a solid album, along the lines of Drop out and Later Registration. But I'll tell u what...I'm not blown away by any of what Iv'e heard from the album so far. Everything I've heard has ranged from good to bot so good. But, I think the album will be good...but "Cant Tell Me Nothin" as a single...makes me not so sure about the rest of it...

co-sign... got the cocaine references and all that but at the end of the verse didn't understand what he meant about ''time magazine etc''

the chorus is from Thom Yourke track, you can listen to it here:
Just ctrl+f and search Lupe.

Lyrics to the orginal song..

Now the beat from stronger is real nice imo, but I recall from ye's old mixtapes, the beats would be real low quality compared to the album, if this makes the album expect to feel the beat a lot more
