Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread
Cruel Summer kind've comes off the rails in the 2nd half of it. It's an ok album. Won't be buying it. That run of Legend/Cudi songs puts me to sleep. I like Pusha. Big Sean has grown on me a bit.....he's a good one verse per song guy. LOL at Common rapping 8 bars, what's the point? Overall, it feels like a mixtape, no real vision to it which is unusual for Kanye. If they were going that route, lose the typical Kanye attempts to be "epic" at the end of songs and just drop 12 bangers for the summer. As it stands, I'm more interesting in finding a way to get all the GOOD Friday tracks downloaded, than giving this a lot of run.
Mase came off on his verse though! I'd actually like to hear some new stuff from him now that I heard that.
Only upcoming album I'm anticipating is Kendrick. I'll check for Lupe's and hopefully be surprised but I'm not excited for it.
