I would assume so. After hearing leaked songs the album wouldve felt half new. To me anyways.
I usually judge an album by how good the content is... sometimes hearing the singles that come out like a year before an drops can make an album feel stale.. (Busta) but singles are being dropped always for albums..

I have to admit something to GAF-hop..


Last few days I have been a huge Three 6 Mafia/Project Pat binge...

Yes it's true that songs released before albums can go stale and shouldn't effect your overall jugement of an album. But I am not saying it did though. I am just saying that hearing all the songs fresh all at once couldve been a contributing factor to the overall review.

The point is I liked mdtf. Infact I still listen to it when i feel the urge to listen to some ye. You may not like it and I respect that. Your not me I don't expect you to like it. Although it's not his best album, it's still a good album nonetheless.

They aren't a listen to a complete type of click... but they bang

I always thought Project Pat was like a dumber Bun.

But no shame in listening to three 6. What albums though? Mista Don't Play?
 
Rank Kanye's albums
-College Dropout>Late Registration>MBDTF>Graduation>808's

Pick a coast to rep
-I'm from the West, but I like east style more. I'll go West regardless.

Pick a side in the Biggie/2Pac discussion
-Biggie. Easily, nothing 2Pac has compares to Ready To Die.

Make a comparison between Khalifa and something soft
-Khalifa is softer than Neville Chamberlain.

Decide who you think won the Jay-Z/Nas beef.
-As plenty of others say, Nas won the battle. Jay-Z won the war. Illmatic beats Jay-Z's whole catalog.

Flocka or Royce?
-Flocka is one of the worst.

What you think of J. Cole?
-Pretty damn good. Probably the best upcoming rapper (along with Krit).

Who is the best Wu-Tang member? (+optional: Rae vs. Ghost)
-Gza. For me that's pretty easy. Also, I'll go with Rae>Ghost. Barely though.

Can 2pac rap? (Or do Biggie got DAT FLOW?)
-Yes.. to both.

Rate Lupe on a scale of 1-10 (+ call him a dumbass for Lasers and political views)
-9 for his first 2 albums. 6 for Lasers. He is a HUGE dumbass. Needs to shut up.

Lil B? Genius or mentally challenged?
-He's pretty damn funny, I don't listen to his music.

Pick an era of Eminem
-MMLP Eminem was the best. SSLP was up there.

How does Drake write such deep lyrics?
-Lol, no.

Is Nas old and dusted with a horrible ear for production?
-Pretty much. Waiting to be proven otherwise.

Joe Budden: Introspective and witty, or annoying emo fetus killing asshole?
-Going to go with the 2nd. Though he can be alright.
 
Ok let's see

1. Rank Kanye's albums LR>CD>Graduation=808>MBDTF
2. Pick a coast to rep East
3. Pick a side in the Biggie/2Pac discussion Pac although I don't bump either that much
4. Make a comparison between Khalifa and something soft Wiz is softer than the melted whipped cream that J. Cole jerked off with
5. Decide who you think won the Jay-Z/Nas beef. Nas, I don't like Jay
6. Flocka or Royce? Flo...Royce
7. What you think of J. Cole? He's got talent and I've enjoyed seeing his ascension but then he went and dropped a stinker of an album. Talks about coming up way to fucking much. FNL >>> Cole World
8. Who is the best Wu-Tang member? (+optional: Rae vs. Ghost) Ghost, Ghost
9. Can 2pac rap? (Or do Biggie got DAT FLOW?) Pac can rap and his personality and state of mind coming through on his songs is what makes him one of the goats
10. Rate Lupe on a scale of 1-10 (+ call him a dumbass for Lasers and political views) One of the brightest minds to ever do this shit. Shame about lasers
11. Lil B? Genius or mentally challenged? A
comedic
genius
12. Pick an era of Eminem MMLP and prior
13. How does Drake write such deep lyrics? While sitting on a cloud overhanging a valley of roses
14. Is Nas old and dusted with a horrible ear for production? Yes, dude is just grinding to pay his bills now
15. Joe Budden: Introspective and witty, or annoying emo fetus killing asshole? He killed a fetus?

just bumping their hits.. like Chicken Headz, pop your collar, Good Googly Moogly and so on..


Edit: one thing I like about Project is he is more grimy.. he isn't talking about kingpin stuff he is talking about borrowing money from fat girls..
 
  1. Rank Kanye's albums - i told myself id go back & try 808s first again. for now, ill still put Dropout safely at the top (nod to tokus on Spaceship), closely followed by LR. 808s might keep MBDTF at the bottom, not sure yet.
  2. Pick a coast to rep - and it's still East Side 'till i die - why ask why?
  3. Pick a side in the Biggie/2Pac discussion - B.I.G. all day but i'm really appreciating Pac more lately, kinda impressive to see such a diverse catalog in such a short life. everybody switches up album covers & styles, not many do i actually see them grow across their work.
  4. Make a comparison between Khalifa and something soft - never gonna top softer than Tiger Woods in a room of black women.
  5. Decide who you think won the Jay-Z/Nas beef. - anyone who says Nas didn't win needs to hear Stillmatic (h to the omo) freestyle, then ether again. super ugly didnt come close.
    anyway, one dude's struggling to live comfortably thanks to Kelis, the other is fine until the afterlife.
  6. Flocka or Royce? - i really don't have feelings about either one. even when dude's not on about his dick, Royce goes on for bars and bars on some slaughterhouse shit and its not bad but i don't feel it.
  7. What you think of J. Cole? - production is nice, album wasn't bad - i dont think he's a robot, but he would stand to swaggerjack some charisma.
  8. Who is the best Wu-Tang member? (+optional: Rae vs. Ghost) - i love me some RZA, but it's prolly Mef right now. i have so many b-sides & mixtapes and i dont recall hearing shit with dude i didn't like, he's fun even when shit's lazy.
    also, Ghost > all others on discographies, and that's damn sure including Rae.
  9. Can 2pac rap? (Or do Biggie got DAT FLOW?) - how is this even a question? i almost get when ya'll are on about Technique's style, but Pac's? if the man couldn't rap, it'd be even weirder to see dudes still try to sound like him decades later.
    and yeah, biggie could flow all day. here we go, here we go - but i'm not domino; i got the funk flow to make ya draws drop slow
  10. Rate Lupe on a scale of 1-10 (+ call him a dumbass for Lasers and political views) - 7. 6.9 if you take away "all black everything"
  11. Lil B? Genius or mentally challenged? - a question for a future generation; i fear the proper metrics haven't yet been created
  12. Pick an era of Eminem - Slim Shady LP, if someone can edit out the dated shots on pop stars that'd really seal the deal
  13. How does Drake write such deep lyrics? - Owl music in castles. i hope no one heard that
  14. Is Nas old and dusted with a horrible ear for production? - man, we've been doing this since before nas dropped the Nasty
  15. Joe Budden: Introspective and witty, or annoying emo fetus killing asshole? - he can be both. like him when he's talking about industry shit, not so much when he's "CMON SON"ing the screen cause he doesn't rank top 10.
 
Rank Kanye's albums
LR > CD > MBDTF >>> Graduation = 808s (I think all of them are good though)

Pick a coast to rep
I'm Midwest, but I probably listen to East Coast more than anything.

Pick a side in the Biggie/2Pac discussion
I think Big is a better rapper, but I listen to Pac more, if that makes any sense.

Make a comparison between Khalifa and something soft
Can't hate on Wiz after playing those 5 tracks he did with Currensy and Big Sean some 50+ times each.

Decide who you think won the Jay-Z/Nas beef.
I was all Nas at the time, but over the years I've come to believe that Blueprint 2 (the song) had the most effective bars in the beef, even if they came out a year late.

Flocka or Royce?
Royce

What you think of J. Cole?
I first heard of him through GAF fawning over his Warm Up mixtape. Couldn't understand the hype at all. Felt the same about Saturday Night Lights. For whatever reason, his album clicked with me. I wish he did more stuff like Rise And Shine and Fitted Cap (on the MMG album) though.

Who is the best Wu-Tang member? (+optional: Rae vs. Ghost)
Ghost

Can 2pac rap? (Or do Biggie got DAT FLOW?)
Pac to me, is the most convincing sounding rapper I've ever heard. His way of speaking just makes him so believable, which is why I think so many people liked him. Biggie was technically a better rapper though.

Rate Lupe on a scale of 1-10 (+ call him a dumbass for Lasers and political views)
Pre-Lasers, 9/10. Since, a 7, maybe even 6. Lasers wasn't terrible music, but that's not what I want from Lupe. More Super Lupe Fiasco please. I try not to listen to the things he says outside of music.

Lil B? Genius or mentally challenged?
At first I laughed, then I cried. I'm not even mad at him though, but I hate the memes he's created. I didn't ask for people like Jaha in my life.

Pick an era of Eminem.
MMLP or TES, can't decide. I'm a mega-stan though.

How does Drake write such deep lyrics?
I can't be witty at 3AM, but Drake is not deep.

Is Nas old and dusted with a horrible ear for production?
Sadly, yes. He has sounded hungry lately, but I can never trust his beat selection.

Joe Budden: Introspective and witty, or annoying emo fetus killing asshole?
All of the above.
 

wenis

Registered for GAF on September 11, 2001.
didn't do this shit the first time...

Rank Kanye's albums
CD=808's> Graduation=MBDTF > LR

Pick a coast to rep
West..........................

Pick a side in the Biggie/2Pac discussion
Biggie.

Make a comparison between Khalifa and something soft
In the year 2012, President Obama will push a mandate through that will force all pictures in the dictionary describing anything soft in texture or material to only feature a picture of Khalifa.

Decide who you think won the Jay-Z/Nas beef.
Jay-Z, fuck a ether.

Flocka or Royce?
FLOCKA FLOCKA FLOCKA


What you think of J. Cole?
Who?

Who is the best Wu-Tang member? (+optional: Rae vs. Ghost)
Ghostface...no other.

Can 2pac rap? (Or do Biggie got DAT FLOW?)
Pac can say shit that sounds...nice....but Biggie makes you want to do all the shit in his music.

Rate Lupe on a scale of 1-10 (+ call him a dumbass for Lasers and political views)
Fuck Lupe Fiasco, fuck Lasers and fuck anything he's ever said.

Lil B? Genius or mentally challenged?
Idiot savant

Pick an era of Eminem
Before he existed.

How does Drake write such deep lyrics?
He has his mom content check em.

Is Nas old and dusted with a horrible ear for production?
yes.

Joe Budden: Introspective and witty, or annoying emo fetus killing asshole?
who?
 
1.Rank Kanye's albums
CD>LR>808>Graduation>MBDTF

2.Pick a coast to rep
East

3.Pick a side in the Biggie/2Pac discussion
Biggie- "Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis.."

4.Make a comparison between Khalifa and something soft
Wiz so soft, the Pillsbury Doughboy pokes HIS belly.

5.Decide who you think won the Jay-Z/Nas beef.
Jay Z

6.Flocka or Royce?
Flocka, but I like Royce too.

7.What you think of J. Cole?
He's alrite, not a big fan but I like some of his tracks. And i'm glad though he got a chance to prove himself.

8.Who is the best Wu-Tang member?
I like Rae, but i dnt know.

9.Can 2pac rap? (Or do Biggie got DAT FLOW?)
Biggie got that FLOW. 2pac could laydown some deep lyrics though.

10.Rate Lupe on a scale of 1-10 (+ call him a dumbass for Lasers and political views)
8, One of my favorite rappers so I know what he's capable of. Lasers was eh, I hardly go back to it, mostly because of the horrible beat selection.

11.Lil B? Genius or mentally challenged?
A little of both, but I really really question where his head is at sometimes.

12.Pick an era of Eminem
I don't care, he's always been alright to me.

13.How does Drake write such deep lyrics?
He's Drake. Last name: ever. First name: greatest. He also sings at Dusk outside his wondow and his owl friends help him out.

14.Is Nas old and dusted with a horrible ear for production?
I don't know about ear for production but he can still rap. loved his verse on the Outro of Carter IV.

15.Joe Budden: Introspective and witty, or annoying emo fetus killing asshole?
Haven't listened to him enough to know.
 
Alright, let's do this:

Rank Kanye's albums
CD > LR=MBDTF > Graduation. I haven't checked the full 808s, but from what I heard it sits comfortably at the bottom.

Pick a coast to rep
East, no doubt.

Pick a side in the Biggie/2Pac discussion
Biggie was the better MC, Pac was the better artist. If I have to pick a side, I'd go with 2Pac because he was important in making me love hip-hop. But "Ready to Die" is the best album without a doubt.

Make a comparison between Khalifa and something soft
Wiz is softer than the School of Fashion Technology.

Decide who you think won the Jay-Z/Nas beef.
Jay-Z signed Nas to Def Jam. That pretty much sums it all.

Flocka or Royce?
Royce.

What you think of J. Cole?
I can't outfart him...

Who is the best Wu-Tang member? (+optional: Rae vs. Ghost)
I always loved Deck. C.R.E.A.M., Triumph, Above the cloud... Classic verses. GZA is probably the best, though.

Can 2pac rap? (Or do Biggie got DAT FLOW?)
2pac can rap, but he's no Biggie (DAT FLOW!)

Rate Lupe on a scale of 1-10 (+ call him a dumbass for Lasers and political views)
8+. I haven't listened to Lasers other than "All Black Everything", so to me dumbass is still amazing.

Lil B? Genius or mentally challenged?
Mentally Challenged.

Pick an era of Eminem
Slim Shady

How does Drake write such deep lyrics?
Unlike Nas, it's because he fell.

Is Nas old and dusted with a horrible ear for production?
Yes.

Joe Budden: Introspective and witty, or annoying emo fetus killing asshole?
Introspective and Annoying.
 
Rank Kanye's albums > dark fantasy. dropout. graduation. 808s. whatever else.
Pick a coast to rep > inland west.
Pick a side in the Biggie/2Pac discussion > no
Make a comparison between Khalifa and something soft > who?
Decide who you think won the Jay-Z/Nas beef. > both look like fools to me.
Flocka or Royce? > who?
What you think of J. Cole? > again, who?
Who is the best Wu-Tang member? (+optional: Rae vs. Ghost) chef.
Can 2pac rap? (Or do Biggie got DAT FLOW?) > both are correct.
Rate Lupe on a scale of 1-10 (+ call him a dumbass for Lasers and political views) +5 resistance.
Lil B? Genius or mentally challenged? > leaning towards mentally challenged.
Pick an era of Eminem > SSLP.
How does Drake write such deep lyrics? > uhhhh...
Is Nas old and dusted with a horrible ear for production? > probably
Joe Budden: Introspective and witty, or annoying emo fetus killing asshole? > neither

YES!!! East Coast is the best coast.

BTW, loved your latest mix. I'm an East Coast guy, but Pac has a special place in my heart.
Best coast doesn't equal east coast... But this next mix is going to burn stuff down.. West coast ear, mainstream DJ's new east coast mix

Nobody is really beefing their coast at all... But nothing wrong with reppin your coast.
 
overcast said:
Yeah I like it too. Going to try to not get this whole thread going Kanye though. Too early.
last several years, there have only been a handful of albums that blew me away. as far as production and overall sound. things that struck me as "new".

a. POS - never better.
2. kanye - MBDTF.
c. el - p - i'll sleep when you're dead.
3. clipse -hell hath no fury.
d. cecil otter - rebel yellow.

to me, that's what's incredible. 99% of everything else sounds the same. those are groundbreakers to me. just my opinion.

and a major that i forgot -
SHABAZZ PALACES - BLACK UP.

Exactly. I ain't even American, in Europe I'm reppin the West Coast (we don't even have an East Coast...)

you have no idea how much shit i take in real life for taking this stance. all my boys are technically skilled, politically motivated backpackers. they get crowds movin. but i always gotta remind them that kanye put out a better album than they ever will in their lives. it's a division.
