People are probably so annoyed by this thread.
Not comparing albums, merely comparing the fact that El-P has been doing the off the wall production for awhile.
The main element to the album is that the sound of Yeezus is apparently sooo different, and he loves the fact that since most are only informed of hip hop through his brand, he becomes the benefactor of this groundbreaking sound.
It just bothers me that more sites don’t look at what El-P is doing as something sustainable and worth more to Hip Hop overall than Kanye’s submission which may have been indirectly influenced by.
Yeezus does it, it changes the game. El-P does it, and it is more of the same. Sucks that RTJ does not get credit that it should.
Yeezus takes credit for what others have been doing, changing the sound.
Stereogum: Twitter feeds and page views, that’s what we do!

Wheres Mike G?
Love when I get reminders of how good new music can really be.
I guess Sid and Nancy is passe these days.
Soundtracks are a money grab, if not for the artist, it is a label dictation in partnership with movies to make money. “Soundtracks” may have just been a generalization, it was not all inclusive, but any that have been released in the past 8-10 years really hold now worth as a collection and waterdown the product that individual bands or artists are creating.
You still spinning that M83 score to that Tom Cruise whatever it was called movie? Gonna tell me that intrinsically you didn’t cringe at the fact they got a great collective of artists for Twilight soundtracks and all are marginal at best tracks?
Just saying, you know, I mean Spacejam, excluded of course.
You just want to be listened to, hey, I get it, youre welcome, I guess, but, you know, I could be wrong, in that case, I’m sorry a B side from the upcoming album you, ultimately will hate, did not measure up, :/.
I’m already finding it annoying, not particularly because of the song, but because it was made for a movie. Hope artists are not going to start getting lazy and using movie plots as inspiration, instead of actual human inspiration for their songs that movies use for their plots. Both are annoying and create a huge mainstream buzz that ultimately plays the song out, but, it payzzzzzzz.
Then again, who buys soundtracks anyway…
After the fact trolling is just, so, you know, sadface.
Honestly, this has been the featured headline for two days.
Even the B sides are gold on this latest stuff. Reallllly into it. Can’t wait to see Helders fucking mashing the drums live again.
Emo Rap. Somebody give this kid a hug, then go listen to Run the Jewels.
I don’t even know what I am supposed to care or not care about anymore.
Just ignore it and hope that it goes away.
Push is a GOD.
How ironic, I just bought Aha Shake on vinyl like 10 mins ago! Phil, agree to disagree. But, youre wrong. The later stuff blows. But, maybe there is a chance….
“Beyond” too, Wow.
So, did they just bring a new slave into the world?
Teva’s making a comeback, what WHAT! Oh, sorry, I was distracted, what is this list about again. Queen? Thought Freddie Mercury was the man. Wait, sorry, something just popped up about Google Play, think I will check that out. Have to come back to this later.
My dear Fiona, what has time done to you and that marvelous face…
