Solid album, not his worst, but not his best either. I think BPIII is better. MCHG doesn't have the lows that BPIII has but it doesn't have the peaks either. I don't think anything on MCHG can match or top On To The Next One, Young Forever, Run This Town, Empire State Of Mind, D.O.A., etc. It falls short of Watch The Throne as well. But overall, solid.

It sounds like Rick Rubin mixed it.

1st song: Him talking about being famous
2nd song: He wants a picasso, and a billion dollars

How/why do regular people listen to this stuff? Unless you're in a club/party, these songs are just out of place and meaningless to me.

3rd song: "Clap for a ***** with his rapping ass." Wtf. Weird flow. Who the hell is Tom Ford? He's trying to sound like Drake, ew.

4th song: "Money talk, I speak flunent *****." Guy rhymes off the n-word for 40 seconds in the first verse. This song is like a rap parody. Dumb lyrics. "**** with me, you know I got it. Sexy bitch, I hope she 'bout it." I bet you're the first rapper to say that.

The quote in the beginning of track 4 is silly too. Not all black people in Africa wore gold. I imagine the type of person who hears that quote and is moved by it, and I judge them silently.

Jay-Z Blue: I stopped listening to the lyrics but this one at least doesn't have an annoying beat like the first 4.


There's no use for rap anymore besides parties. Who can sit there and listen to these guys brag about their money and degrade woman, and just shout their negative attitudes out with no melody. Such a depressing genre.

I was really looking forward towards this album.

The Hype was just about right,I was not disappointed. This album is amazing. 9/10

Every song is good. This beats Kanye's album by light years.

This shit suddenly reminded me of generational gaps and how I've moved on from a lot of this sound.

It's wack, I dunno why people don't listen to real music. Even real hip hop.

It used to bother me that people continue to say music like this (whether it's rap or rock or whatever) is good because it means, to me, that they haven't heard the scope of the shit that's out there. Now, I accept it.
