Yeah I agree with that. False arguments and platitudes are just as bad, they often feed group think too. Ignorance breeds ignorance.

thank you for bringing this topic up.. MBDTF was truly a COMPOSITION, just as college dropout was. i always listen to the intro to 'all of the lights' along with the song cause it makes it so much more powerful. i still gotta go with college dropout though just because it's such a classic.

When you present your self as a rapper or a part of the hip-hop community and you put out a song or an album where you are singing all the hooks and your raps then of course some people won't like it.

Al Thornton has a problem. He gets mad at other people's OPINIONS. ISH tolerated dude when he went on a 90-day Lil B dick sucking binge, yet no one else is qualified to have an opinion.

College Dropout had songs about other things...not involving Kanye. The first two albums had songs that were wide ranging.


Now he is all molly'd out talking about shit his listeners don't even know or care about.....well, the listeners that he rode to stardom.


Which is why I feel he was more genuine back then.

I saw an interview after his Grammy where he said his living space was, "too pretty for rap."

Dude sold out and is wearing leather kilts and engaging in false relationships for notoriety.

Just my opinion. Of course theres all the talk about his ghost writters for his first 2 albums, so that could also account for the difference. I just found that Kanye more relate-able than the current one. I still like some of his new stuff and like I said before his production is still amazing, but him as a rapper isn't as appealing to me anymore.

And college dropout is easily a better album imo. But then again everyone looks for different things when listening to an album
