    • You should check out the group the Blue Schloras if you haven't already. They're from Seattle and some of their stuff is pretty tight. I think they might be right up some of your guys' alley.

              I agree. To me I just don't connect with the songs that much. He went ape **** on the production and its almost too much. I just got bored with some of the songs having long ass breakdowns such as the one in Runaway. Sorry Kanye but I'll pass on you distorted humming or whatever the hell it is. But I did like Dark Fantasy, Devil in a New Dress, Hell of a Life and Gorgeous.

              I never thought that Kanye was a fantastic lyricist but he was easy to relate to because he was soulful which I don't think he has in the new album.

              It is a very good album, I just don't think it is classic.

              • You guys understand that there is more to rap than lyrics right? Not that I'm saying that I don't think Kanye is a good lyricist. He's not the best out there but makes up for it with amazing production, delivery, and flow.

                I have to agree that some of the songs drag out too long though, I always switch off of Runaway when he gets to that last stupid humming part.

                • Kanye was never that much of a lyricist

                  • When you're comparing him to the mainstream guys like Eminem, Weezy, etc. I'd only put T.I. on his level. Not that either have really deep subject matter but they can be clever and entertaining to listen to.

                        I made a similar post a while back when EvilNixon claimed that Jay Electronica was the GOAT purely because of lyrical content. To which I responded that there is a lot more to being a rapper than just lyrics.

                        But with that being said, lyricism is being severely undervalued in today's hip-hop.

                          • Lyrics are the most important part of being an emcee. Lyrics are what actually give a song meaning.

                              We as Ravens fans are clearly scum of the earth, and should just be happy that these great people, who cheer for nothing than the finest, morally impeccable players, playing on the finest, most morally impeccable teams, will grace us with their presence, and words of wisdom.
