Magna Carta Holy Grail
New Hov album jus dropped!! ENJOY!!!
I'm gonna give it a listen, but once again, I feel the production will override his lyrics a la Kingdom Come and the majority of American Gangster. But on Another note, I'm really digging Born Sinner by J. Cole. He has made a huge step in his artistry and is much more consistent with making hit singles. Yeezus is ehh...but from an audio engineer's perspective, the bass throughout is booming. And for you underground, "stuck in the 90's" heads out there, I suggest Albert Einstein by Alchemist and Prodigy. So gutter.
I don't know about you but Watching Movies With The Sound Off by Mac Miller was pretty dope. The guy has come a long way, lyrically.
I prefer Mac's album over Yeezuz
Alch did not disappoint on "Einstein", though Prodigy was basically standard fair.
I'ma buy it tomorrow
One word, "Ether". Nas can never lose to Hov after that track.
very smooth, flashy music from jay z once again.
It was over hype, BBC with pharrell best track... WITH NAS ON IT!
G.o.o.d kid MaAd CIty better than holy grail
It says file does not exist
im not digging mcdunkins gif but im really digging his avi
Heading to Best Buy later today to pick it up.
I'm still stuck on that J. Cole though. I've seriously considered putting Kanye West's album in the trash.
J Cole is great. Chance the Rapper- Acid Rap is awesome and innovative if you have yet to hear it.
I honestly haven't liked Jay-Z for a while, his best album was his first but I'll check out MCHG still because I'm sure the production is top notch. I'm really loving J Cole's album and even Wale's The Gifted is pretty good for the most part. Yeezus has a couple good songs, but for the most part it's straight gawbage. It really a irks me that a lot of these critics out there are praising that unlistenable, rushed piece of crap.
Oh and Acid Rap is a great mix tape, it's better than a lot of albums released this year.
replace a lot with the word every and you are correct...
This album is boring as hell. The beats on tracks 3-8, plus BBC (why the hell was this an interlude?) should be given to someone else.
-Goes back to listening to Joey Bada$$'s tape and Run the Jewels back to back-
this whole thread is a different language to me, have no idea what you guys are talking about.
The first thread in a while where almost every post is negged...
Taste is different and black music always a reason to go after each other.
Thanks for the conversation anyway, I'll give some of this a try the next days.
Btw, the link is not working for me

Anybody who don't like YEEZUS isn't probably going to apreciate MCHG. My only problem is that the app worked perfect on my S4 until the album dropped and it crashed the servers so I'm actually listening to it onYoutube.
As a child of the 90s who gcame of age to Jay and the like I can't say enough how much I appreciate Jay for his longevity. Lov or hate em Jay Z consistently pushes the borders of pop culture. First with starting hiw own label then his own clothing company to dropping a classic every 10 months.
Now on his 12th album Jay is still pushing the envelope into the future. He just broke ground with an unprecedented deal with Samsung and most recently became a certified sports agent who just signex Kevin Durant and will most likely sign Lebron and Melo too. JAY s a true revolutionary.
With that said MCHG is an album that's gonna have to grow on you. I'm a J Cole fan but he's lacking something and Born Sinner for all its quality production layering and thought I ut lyrics doesn't compare to the raw and fresh Yeezus that takes convention ans turns it upside down stripped. MCHG is somewhere in between production wise.
And for those wondering where the Yeezus sound came from u need to check out Travis Scotts Owl Pharoah EP.
Pretty solid analysis of these albums. Owl Pharoah disappointed me though. A lot of interesting production angles, but it felt incomplete. Especially the song where 2Chainz verse just cuts off.
Yeah they do cut off short and that's a production choice he cuts song before you can get tired of it yet it leaves one feeeling unsatisfied. Kanye uses this same method on Yeezus for example Bound 2 keeps cutting the same until the end when he lets it play through.
No, actually I very much enjoyed Yeezus and thought this was trash.
After the first couple songs, every song begins to sound exactly the same. And yes, the production completely overrides Jay Z. Not one memorable verse on the entire album.
J Cole's album was also hot garbage. Dude couldn't sound more generic, be less original, and be delivered worse.
I'm not going to pretend I listened to Mac Miller's album, but I'm sure it was better than Wale's at the very least.
As far as Yeezus goes, I am a KW fan, and I believe that music is opinion over anything else so I am fine with people who say they didn't like it. I definitely didnt' think it was his best album, but when it comes down to it I listen to all 10 songs and enjoy the hell out of it. I am a god is the only song I really don't like. Some of it seems kind of out there and strange but overall I like the fact he tries to go into different directions with all of his work, even if in this case it wasn't quite on the same tier as Dark Fantasy. My only complaint is it felt a bit rushed (But not nearly as rushed as this Jay Z crap, which FYI, Rick Rubin did not touch with production, that was all media hype having him in the commercial) and I think he could have done more with a few of the songs. It has received pretty mixed reviews from fans, but critics have loved it. I just think its preference when it comes to an album like this. It's not that people who don't like it "don't get it" or any of that bs it just doesn't appeal to some people and that's fine. I think it's dope.
1. Chance The Rappers Acid Rap might have been the underground tape of the year(depending on how his style fits you)
2. "Nas Lost" is a meme that started on another rap forum years ago I figured you guys would have heard of it. Ive always been a Nas fan and thought you guys would see the joke
Ways in which Nas has lost
"I took the L when he passed it, this little bastid"
Found a used condom on his car babyseat, left there by Jay-Z after Hov f***ed Nas's baby mama, Carmen.
Later signed to Jay-Z's label.
Married known prostitute Kelis.
Forced to pay amazing amounts of alimony and child support to Kelis after the inevitable divorce.
Had Kelis tatted on his arm.
Had to beg a judge to reduce his monthly alimony payments because "nahmean, the economy is rough even for, like, emcees, nahmean?"
so please don't take it out on my poor points
3. Im gonna highjack this thread to get you guys to listen to some real hip hop that's being slept on. Schoolboy Qs oxymoron should be greatness when it drops Ab-soul, The underachievers (I HIGHLY suggest their Indigoism mixtape), Flatbush Zombies list others if you got any
