GOAT-tier album man...every track is literally a classic

this man was a damn genius, even MBDTF was close to that level. Kim ruined this man...

I actually liked Bound 2 for a minute, but I couldn't listen to the whole album from start to finish.


I said toast mutha****a!

I was a HUGE Kanye fan in 2004. I was like 15-16 then and would annoy all my friends about this guy and to listen to the College Dropout.

Now I fukin can't stand him or any of his music.

"Yeezus" is pretty solid, actually. Anyone who takes chances and doesn't take the same formula and run it into the ground is okay in my book.

It's different and I respect the move, but musically, it's not what Kanye really is man... It's not a classic. It's not something you can listen to on repeat every day. Maybe it's just so ahead of it's time that I can't truly appreciate it, but I only fk with one track on that album, and it's not even in my rotation anymore.

Kanye use to hangout at this clothing store in my city. He was friends with the owner and they would have after hours jam sessions. This was when he was underground and coming up.

I wish I had those old flyers to the sessions to show people that he came from the underground.

Glad I knew of him before he blew up.

I consider "Yeezus" a minor experimental work, much like "heartbreak". I enjoyed it for its daring, but I definitely wouldn't compare it to "College Dropout" or "MBDTF". That's almost unfair.

I used to think T-pain and Young Zeezy were like the best. I used to work for a warehouse in high school and all the ppl there who were in their 20s were like "these young kids don't know nothin'."

It's crazy how big Kanye is now.

Whenever I think of him, I still think Kanye the producer and making beats.
