Kanye West's New Album

I'm a big hip hop fan, so I thought I'd review a big album I just listened to. It makes me angry.

Kanye's 4th album. 808s & Heartbreak
Scheduled to release November 24. Downloaded it last nite.

This album is garbage.

Rappers should rap, not sing. T-Pain is the only one who could pull it off, because he's obviously a Rappa Ternt Sanga.

I don't want to hear Kanye having fun with auto tunes voice editing. This shit sucks.
Moreover, the songs are emo. Emo as hell. Shut the fuck up Kanye, where is the realness and the truth that your first album had. The struggles you told about, coming up in the game and hustling---where is the genius you rhymed about urban life? This album is like a freaking ballad, Love Lockdown, Heartless? Honestly, your social RAP is your best game, why didn't you stick with it.

I can't stress it enough, WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU SINGING.

Remember how Justin Timberlake reinnovated pop music with "Future Sex Love Sounds." Well Kanye is trying WAY to hard to do that for Hip Hop. The TR-808 beat making he utilizes isn't bad, but it's not groundbreaking and he definitely doesn't compliment it with his auto tunes and emo lyrics. Your last album you tried expanding your musical arsenal with songs like Flashing Lights and it worked all right, but not this new stuff.

He failed, big time.

Kanye your slipping. And your breaking my heart. But I shouldn't be surprised, it's the fucking name of your album.

Now that you've made it big, I kind of preferred if you dropped out again.

Isn't this the guy who claimed he was the Michael Jordon of Hip-hop?

Isn't this the guy who said George Bush doesn't care about black people?
There's a level of facility that everyone needs to accomplish, and from there
it's a matter of deciding for yourself how important ultra-facility is to your
expression. ... I found, like Joseph Campbell said, if you just follow whatever
gives you a little joy or excitement or awe, then you're on the right track.
