I am still not convinced this album is actually happening this year. Until an actual, official single and/or release date drops, I am not going to let myself get excited for a new Kanye album in 2014.
That being said, this leak is making it very hard not to get excited. It always impresses me how much Kanye has progressed as a rapper, from kinda clunky flow with some great lines on College Dropout to effectively carrying New Slaves, which has such minimal production it almost borders on an a capella track until the outro. There is no way he could have pulled that off early in his career, and that is pretty amazing.

I think you forgot to put the band name in the headline. You’re welcome for everything.
100% agree Lese Majesty is getting overlooked. Really, really great album front to back. It is a true album, and all the tracks come together to form an incredible whole. I have listened to it many times in the past week, and catch something new seemingly every time I listen. Right now my favorites are “Solemn Swears”/”Harem Aria,” but like Black Up it’s such a consistent album that I feel like my favorite song will change a lot.
Damn, I don’t know guys, I guess I just like his music and think he seems like a person who exists in the world, flaws and all? He is not Jesus incarnate, but maaaaaan people are keen on hating the dude and I just don’t get it.
This is the album I have been wanting for the summer. It’s different from Black Up but still has traces of that album’s sound. It fully lives up to my expectations, it’s unique and challenging yet strangely accessible at the same time.
I stopped reading the Chart Watch part after “Canadian reggae-pop” because I’ve run the numbers and there is mathematically no possible way that could be good.
What makes me the most sad of all of that is Iggy Azalea has never put out a verse that comes even close to anything off 212. As obnoxious as Azealia Banks is, she demonstrates an immense talent on that song, and it’s depressing to imagine that had she stayed on track we could have had her at the top of the charts instead of the watered down, boring flow and rhyming of Iggy Azalea.
Is that the album cover up top?
