It's over.It's literally fucking over.Even RYM isn't circlejerking him. This is a bigger collapse then Kanye. The bubble on critical darling rap has popped and Kendrick is done.
Now Kanye > Kendrick is a an objective fact
>>110482068Always has been, always will be.
>>110482068Goes without saying
>>110482068didn't even need to say it
>2022 >le epic "experimental" hip hop concept albums with dumb interludes with jazzy samples are still a thing When will pop music move on
If Fantano rate this, it will change again. It's always like this. I think even Pitchfork might change this rating at this point, the people on that site might as well be bots.
>>110482162Hopefully soonImagine if Kendrick didn’t have this fucking persecuted Jesus/poet laureate complex and stopped sniffing his own farts. We could have had so many as good as GKMC
>>110481580funny3.5 is a pretty high rating when it comes to metal album kek

>>110482068really, who would think otherwise? kanye is nuts but his discography is serious business.
Why the fuck did he have kodak black all over this?
rym only hypes up rappers like babytron and yeat so that should tell you everything you need to know
>>110482162the blood is already in the waternow its whoever comes up and takes a big enough bite
>>110482352Bursted out laughing at work at this
>>110482068Kanye has and always will be the One in this genre
>>110482068always has been. kanye's production ability puts him above kendrick
>>110482352>MY ANCESTORS ARE SMILING ON ME IMPERIAL
>>110482352>>110482352this is unironically the future of music journalism and its beautifuli now know more about this album than if id read every single mainstream review on it combined
Kendrick's God complex is obnoxiousCant stand any artist who does this type of messianic imagery shit thinking theyre Jesus. No wonder Kendrick loves U2 he's taking a page right out of Bono's play book
>>110481580RYM plebs at work, TPAB is desperately overrated and this new one is honestly better.
>>110484498it was cool when kanye did it tho
>>110482068It way always been the case anonKendrick missed the mark in Overly Dedicated while Kanye revolutionized hip hop with College Dropout808s completely widened hip hop's horizons while all his most influential work (TPAB) did was spring a bunch of hack copycatsCreatives love Kanye while pretentious people love KendrickWe haven't even started on the fact that Kanye can produce while Kendrick relies on his circle of producers
>>110484536Kanye is arrogant and has a God complex as well, but at least it wasnt as on the nose as wearing a crown of thorns on your album cover
>>110484536Kanye pulls it off since he's a literal schizo and is not hamming it up like Kendrick
>RYM didn't massively overrate thisGenuinely surprised.
After Good Kid and Butterfly, I thought Kendrick would be the greatest rapper to ever live if he could keep it up. He couldn't quite keep it up. Not like this newer stuff is bad or anything (See Drake), but it isn't the same level.
>>110482068Of course, Kanye trascended hip hop. Half of the tracks in Mr Morale aren't even songs, they're skits or interludes or spoken word, and the hooks and music is pretty mediocre
>>110482068It feels good, I won’t lie. I’m gonna go listen to Donda now.
>>110481580SUPPORT TRANS CHILDREN
>>110484602Give it time. It's guaranteed to get bolded + #1 for 2022. Once Fantano/Pitchfork praise it, people will follow suit.
>>110481580haven’t listened to it yet but the featured on this album are so fucking weirdkodak black and beth gibbons on the same albumwhat was he thinking?
>>110482068Yes and Kendrick isn’t even 2nd place. Tyler is number 2.
>>110484649kodak black is a walking mistake
>>11048206850 CENT >>>>>>>> KANYE >>>>>>>>> DRAKE >>>>>>>>>>>> KENDRICK
>>110484649The album has zero cohesion or throughline. The Beth Gibbons track is a deeply personal song delivered in a raspy voice over a minimalist piano accompaniment with no percussion. The Kodak Black track is generic trap shit with a tiktok bait hook.
only finished the first disc but it has way too many skits disguised as actual songslike tell me people are really gonna listen to united in grief, worldwide steppers, rich spirit and cry together after the first listen?
>>110484771united in grief is one of the best songs on the album
>naw fuck you bitch>naw fuck you nigga>naw fuck you bitch>naw fuck you nigga>naw fuck you bitch>naw fuck you nigga>naw fuck you bitch>naw fuck you niggaThank you for the great music Kendrick
>>110484771United in Grief was probably the best one i've heard so far (into the second half now)
>>110482352I am posting this in every kendrick thread from now on
>>110482068only rym rated kendrick higher
>>110482068this would be true if Ye retired after 2016 but instead he's tarnishing his legacy by dragging out his music career when he is so obviously far, far past his prime.Ye is in his "how do you do fellow kids" phase.
>>110482068Kanye has 4 classics in his discography, 3 of them in 3 years. Kendrick has one good album, 11 years ago.
>>110482068>KanyeTCD - 9.5/10LR - 10/10Graduation - 7/10808s - 9/10MBDTF - 9/10Yeezus - 9.5/10TLOP - 9/10ye - 8/10KSG - 7/10JIK - 7/10Donda - 8.5/10Donda 2 - 5/10 (I sincerely hope the version out now is not even close to the finished version because if it is then it is BY FAR the worst thing Ye has ever done)>KDotOD - 7/10S80 - 9.5/10GKMC - 9/10TPAB - 10/10UU - 8/10Damn - 8.5/10MM&BS - not sure yet but leaning towards a 9/10They're on pretty equal footing, Kendrick just needs two or three more great albums and he's basically Kanye-level, and it looks like Kanye is starting to fall off, only one great album since 2016 honestly (Donda).
My favorite part of Kendricks discography where he reveals that the guy who signed his label is a violent gang-banging nigger who murdered a fast food employee during a robbery. And he then goes on to talk about the great cosmic coincidence and the spiritual connection between black folk that Kendrick's dad while working the drive-thru would give this violent nigger free chicken so he wouldn't be murdered too. It shows where these people's minds are at and why they can really never be integrated into civil society.

>>110485505what the fuck is going on
>>110485794take a guess
>>110485765I don’t anon, I just think it’s funny
it really feels like kendrick imitating himself. we cry together is a sad attempt at a conceptual kendrick track, it's really embarrassing how badly he wants to be his old self there. The result is a vile, meandering, bloated, meaningless piece of shit. Kendrick used to be more than capable of justifying his arrogance. with this album, his self proclaimed savior persona feels like a joke. he takes himself far too seriously and he has bought into all of his hype. there's great songs here but at least DAMN felt self aware. it was deliberately trying to be stripped down, approachable kendrick. now, he's trying to reach the heights of GKMC and TPAB, but he's lost himself in a pullitzer prize and larger than life image
>>110485505Everything is so weird. Left side gives me the fucking creeps.
>>110485886it does not even feel like something kendrick would make it sounds like something someone pretending to be him would make to get woke points while completely having the point fly above their head
>>110485505They gave him the Pulitzer Prize for his last mediocre album, what do you expect? Kendrick is the go-to rapper for woke, out of touch white boomers.
>>110485886He's definitely on some holier than thou nonsense. Kanye also uses Christianity to fuel his own narcissism, but Kendrick takes it to the next level.
>>110485886>he has bought into all of his hypeThis is just current niggas in general, though. Pushed so heavy, far and wide by the American media/propaganda machine and given the best PR on the planet as the mascots of globalism and now they think they’re like gods or aliens or the only real humans on earth. Similar thing is starting to happen with women, these people really lose themselves in the way media corporations portray them.
>Conscious Hip-HopVomit-inducing genre of music
>>110485505these are all british rags. wait until the non inbred populace publish their opinions.
>>110485505>Critical AcclaimI remember when I used to think this meant anything other than that the recording artist has the correct political views
>>1104855423 lines out of a 1h30 album triggered u that bad wow..
>>110485505And here I was thinking people will finally stop dickriding Kendrick, how foolish of me
Yep. Time for /mu/tards to claim he's "the best rapper alive". Kill yourselves.
I feel like everyone has a bad taste in their mouth after this album, but can't articulate why. Here's my take:This album is far too pessimistic. It's unbalanced and revels in pity and negative emotions. Through 18 songs of listening how horrible everything is, and how hard it is to be Kendrick, you just get exhausted. There's no solution, just criticism and sadness.Donda is rough around the edges and contains similar negative themes, but is emotionally enjoyable because Kanye communicates the strength he finds in his faith and family. This album is therapy for Kendrick, and clearly is more for him than anyone else. It acts like it's going to change the culture, but since it's in such an unpalatable package, nobody is going to want to listen to what the songs have to say.
>>110482352Limmy is the cherry on the top on this absolute monster of a post!
>>110486155yet the entire rest of the album was so meh it makes generic shitty bandcamp rap sound good but yeah whatever "Triggered"
>>110486200pretty fair take. donda is just as long (if not longer?) and has its own share of bad songs, yet it's far easier to listen to. it's refreshing. there's a lot of humanity in stuff like 24 and come to life. this is just the music of someone COMPLETELY entrenched in themselves without any self awareness or attempt to disconnect. I've loved kendrick since TPAB came out and his ego on this album really gives me second hand embarrassment
I dont find the value in criticizing this album. So heres this post.
Can someone explain to me how black israelites and nation of islam followers always talk about Jesus and christians buy it hook line and stinker?
>>110486062They are, they are kings every single black person there were no slaves or workers just royalty and society worked by magic since none did anything but rule I guess
>>110482068You're over 5 years late for this comparison (not that it even needed to be made)
>>110485354>Donda 8.5>2pleb 10Fuck outta here nigga. Nothing on 2blah is on the level of Jesus Lord.
>>110484563>but at least it wasnt as on the nose as wearing a crown of thorns on your album coverHe literally name his album "Yeezus".
>>110487451Yeah and it was kanye at his darkest and most visceral. The absolute lowest point of his hedonism, wallowing in despair. The title is ironic.
>>110485886>The result is a vile, meandering, bloated, meaningless piece of shit.Buzzwords much?
>>110487486>it was kanye at his darkest and most visceralThis means nothing anymore.
The ego fully got to him. The album is fully about himself.
>>110485373I thought I was the only one who recognized how absurd the chicken incident was
most threads up right now are about this album. Just admit you faggots like it already or at least go post all in the same thread holy shit could you all be more obvious >talk about things i like?>bbbbut i want to talk about what i dont like!>yeah i lov- i mean haha yeah its trash!

it sure sound like the most pretentious title for a rap album ever
>>110487716you're autistic and up your ass, get a grip faggot
Fucking nigger troonic music can sneak its way up your American rectums, but ain't no way it's getting anywhere near mine. Toddler level lexically and as nuanced as a farting neckbeard. Instrumentation used to be good at least, but now it's the same trappy dogshit. But you white beta overgrown teenagers will suck a gallon off his balls just because it's the 'hip' thing to do. I ain't see no real nigger would listen to this gay shit.
>>110487925deadass. Karen dog whistle to hate on these bars
>>110485354Take like 3 points out of every rating and it starts to become reasonable
>>110487511How? he hasn't gone that hard since. Donda's imagery may be dark but it's nowhere near as heavy as Yeezus. If anything Donda is hopeful, acknowledging that the world is a fucked up place but through family and faith one can overcome and live well. that message is entirely absent on Yeezus.
>>110487950The same exact cunt who posted that on Red also posted this
>>110487716Terminal autist. They are both white basedboy's nigger music, but at least Kanye is genuinely retarded so his musicality shines through. If you transcribe Kendrick's lyrics with colour crayons I might have mistaken them for the diary of a suicidal special ed nigger teen who tries so very hard to be MLK. Maybe that's why you gravitate towards him, in which case just do me a favour and peruse the rope.
>>110482352sums it up
Kendrick Lamar has always been trash. Always. Since day 1.
>>110482068true but who caresneither has put out a good album in 5+ year
>>110482352Ha ha .. Yep .. Top Scotch comedy from Oor Limmy .. Lmao ..

>>110488753WE WUZ DIN NO BETTA
>>110488545This WILL be the case. Hes "ahead of his time"
I like the album but getting Baby Keem in production for two tracks was a fucking mistake
>>110488769Yes, that concept must be really hard to process for you :^)
There are so many interesting tracks and so many worthless tracks. I don't see why this needed to be a double album.
>>110488876It fits on one CD even lel. But yeah it's far too long.
Mr. Morale and The Big Disappointment…Back to Hendrix.
Kendrick is cancelled guys
>>110482352>>"FUCK YOU NIGGA FUCK YOU BITCH FUCK YOU NIGGA FUCK YOU BITCH ×15"This was kino, though
>>110481580>This is a bigger collapse then Kanye.kanye never collapsed, you're just another faggy white liberal who hates him now because he won't repeat your retarded politics back to you.
>>110484602they ARE massively overrating it. it's a 1.5 at best and they're giving it a 3.5.
Is Kendrick really trans now? I thought he was married?
>>110491044Donda 2 is a collapse my dude
im tired of pretending kendrick is good, he is novelty rap. he raps like he's speedrunning slam poetry. its fucking cringe and his voice is annoying. nothing on to pimp a butterfly aside from maybe King Kunta can be listened to casually.
>>110491230donda 2 is a masterpiece and a huge pleb filter.
>>110482352Broken Buck Kenny!
kendrickbros.. what happened...??
>>110491290>>110491290that's exactly his trick, was since TPAB. I just recently went back to the ending of TPAB, couldn't believe how everybody accepted this nigga cutting out parts of 2Pac interview and making it look like he was speaking to him, how much of a pretentious buffoon faggot you have to be to come up with such idea and unironically think it's a great art concept, something that weird al yankovic was doing for comedy sketchs in 2000s
>>110481580So did the people rating it down get their ratings deweighted?
Beats are -3/10 jfc
>>110484536kanye is a god tho

>>110485886>feels like kendrick imitating himself>it was deliberately trying to be stripped down, approachableagreed. We cry together and Opposites attract from O.D. are essentially the same concept, except opposites attract is 100x more relatable and listenable than the screeching we get on We cry together
>>110485354>I sincerely hope the version out now is not even close to the finished version because if it is then it is BY FAR the worst thing Ye has ever doneAgreed, but True Love could be one of best ye songs if it was finish.
>>110481580>RYM>in 2022Kek boomers man..
>>110484536They are different kinds of 'God complex'.Kanye is literally going like "I am the best of all times, fuck everybody". Kendrick is "im here to elevate everyone because im so smart and everyone should listen to me and my enlightened takes on culture". Kanye comes off as inspirational, he is the embodiment of someone trying his best to achieve his vision. Kendrick just sounds like a self-absorbed 15 year old who thinks he has the answers to everything and thats what makes him a retard.
>>110484498>kendrick loves u2lmao this shit is still funny to me. he even got them on a feature kek holy shit fucking U2 of all bands

>>110482068this has always been a fact except to people that overrate tpab, which will probably now be reevaluated after the mr morale and the mid steppers
Hope he goes with more IDM-ish production like in Mirrors
Yeah I can never look at this guy the same after the concert incident. His social standing is so much higher than that girl's it's not funny. What he did to her was honestly despicable. And a lot of the lines on this album are pretty suspicious too. Keep in mind that a lot of these rappers just fucking hate you if you're white, and you shouldn't make excuses for them when they cheekily say racist shit.
>>110481580>Fuck you nigga>Fuck you bitch>Fuck you fuck youThis album will get nominated for a Grammy
>>110481580i don't care about kendrick lamar music, but getting a bad score by rym users on the general charts must be a good sign

>>110496745tpab is literally the third best album of all time there, even if that was non relevant to most it's kinda mad after 5 years to work it the new album is so distant from that

Is this one of these situations? Because on Wikipedia it says all but one outlet gave it a perfect score, which off the top of my head, I've only seen matched with Thriller.

>>110485507he's gonna put Auntie Diaries in his top 5 soty
>>110501118basically anything longer than 40 minutes by definition has to be at least a double album, it has to do with vinyl
>>110482068DONDA blows this shit out of the water.
>>110481580Has anyone else noticed that this is kendricks first studio album to not be executive produced by dr. Dre? I think the fact the album lacks any cohesion and almost sounds like a different person made it is because we underestimated how much of a role Dre played in quality control. When it comes to quality control, track listing, and cohesion I’m starting to think Kendrick had nothing to do with that. He’s lyrically talented but he can’t put an album together by himself.
the non explicit We Cry Together is hilarious my god what a horrible song
>>110498127That song was kino though

>>110498090>>110505172You're an npc. Yes a lot of rappers don't fuck with you if you're white (noname's drama tanked her reputation far worse than kendrick's).At the concert it was the fans who were booing the chick for not self-censoring, but in retrospective everyone agreed that it was the worst song for him to invite someone up for and it was handled like shit. But majority of people who listen to Kendrick probably don't dwell on the concert and if if Kendrick didn't mention it on the album, majority of people wouldn't have recalled it at all.
>>110482068They're both mid-tier.

>>110501357I'm inclined to believe this, Dre is known for being very directorial with his artists, arguably more so than producing ever since the 90s, he's the best producer to help an artist craft a coherent experience throughout a project
>>110488160DAMN, who is that goddess?
>>110505240Even if everyone forgot about it, I think it stands out as being pretty bad on his part. He's an incredibly wealthy and respected celebrity who absolutely humiliated a fan of his on stage. If the audience started it, then it was his responsibility to defend her, but he's clearly very weird about white people saying nigga, even in the most innocent context possible, and where he has the highest social high ground. This reflected REALLY poorly on his character, and people want to handwave it and say it wasn't that big of a deal, when it kinda was.
>>110505240>>110498090This isn't for you whitey. Dont care didnt ask youre white, take this L and sit the fuck down.

>>110498090We are talking about a guy here that admitted on this album that he cheated on his high school love because he hates white people and a white roastie spread her legs for him, so he couldn´t do anything else as hatefucking her to payback for his ancestors fucking kek thats reperations for him.
>>110481580so. many. fucking. thoughts........ the music. Imagine endless lush tunneled desert planes of cavernous ambience consonance, paced with a particular theatrical chapbook flair that continues the tradition of gkmc. It's slick, it's mercury quick, it's soulful, reverent occasionally. All hope of a "To pimp a butterfly part 2" arrangements wise is decimated within 30 seconds of the searing "N95". Sounwave's emotionally high-octane quiltwork makes it all hang together. Lyrically galvanizes the years of hellish disease and disaster and crystallizes American and Black culture into this treasury with a withdrawn yet beacon confidence, every syllable projects an elevated wisdom. Definitely also got that jaded, grammys collecting dust in the closet sort of hermit thing too. He lays it all out. Are you really here, can you handle it? Really kind of an emo build-up thing, widescreen tear-soaked grab bag in a tusk/kiss me kiss me kiss me operatic way. Digs up the bodies of Eminem's Kim except far better on "We cry together", chilling stuff man. This 18-song album is uniformly earnest, sparingly experimental, richly exploratory and organic. Weighs temperamentally charged moments expertly through the tracklist, as its predecessors did. Conversationally blunt and aromatic, he knows you'll make it of it what you will but you can tell that it has a fixed storyboard to him from his characteristically virtuosic lead performances as a rapper, filling the sonic pallete with bangin overdubs again -- like Gkmc it's attuned to the radio moreso than damn even.
>>110507407But in that mid 2010's bachata meets EDM kegger fucking way, (kodak black is the only vocalist to explicitly feature multiple times i believe) as well as post-soundcloud musings and evocations, throughout disc 1, this might scare you away... But i really fucking like it. It's honest, bombastic and satisfying and everyone just gives their star turn for kdot, i mean of course right!?!. Beats like all of kendricks albums are the tip of the top, just beautiful and the most mouth watering chinese water torture changes of texture. Gets jazzier, darker and more into cloudsoaked ballads as we barrel through this utter masterwork. Starts straying from instrumental vamps and exploring more mindbending effects and thrilling weaving use of piano and group vocals, THANK YOU Duval Timothy, Sampha, and Sam Dew. All of the home stretch is stunners. And yes he has developed a sort of billionare joe rogan view of political correctness amid his assumed toxically masculine persona. Like dylan before him, the prophet is now tainted, but nonetheless shines in our light, my need for the gift his creations provide.
>>110507407This means nothing
>>110507421>>110507407hello sir how do i unsubscribe from your subreddit?
>>110481580>Even RYM isn't circlejerking himThey're not circlejerking him AS much but it's still happening. This wouldn't get nearly as high an average if a nobody put it out.Also the fact that you said "even" implies nobody anywhere else is circlejerking him when critics are once again going absolutely nuts over it.Not saying it's irredeemable garbage btw, just not great.
>>110506486There would be no modern society without the white man. You couldn´t even listen to your shit tier music on your overprized headphones if it wasn´t for the white men. >B-B-BBUT WE INVENTED THA PEANUT BUTTER
>>110498090>>110506486What's this "concert incident" stuff and who's this girl that's being talked about here?
>>110507703kendrick invited a fat white lady up on stage whose somewhat old in her 30-50s and pretty much the song had nigga in the lyrics and soon as she went to say it with him he pulls her off the mic and says no
>>110507747Pretty sure she was a teenager
>>110507856idk man it was years ago still doesnt change it was horseshit back then and even now and he come backs with this shitty album just to excuse it with trans rights shit
>>110507747Oh, well that's dumb. I assume he brought her up there to join in, not to awkwardly stand there. Or maybe he's the type that invites a girl up for him to grind up against during a performance, idk what he's like live.Either way, anyone who thinks that saying nigga while just singing along is off limits is too far gone imo.
>>110498090Yep. Got to track 3 and just shut it off. Why should I listen to someone talk about my people like that? Fuck Kendrick Lamar.
>>110482352>therapy is...LE GOOD!!!
>>110481580Holy shit RYMers got filtered hard It's better than GKMC
>>110502713>Why does Ye always win in the endbecause he's the protagonist of the world while redditors like kendrick are just glorified quest givers.
>>110509337>because he's the protagonist of the worldAre zoomers finally realizing that niggas are their gods? Your whole life so far.
>>110485354Fantano watchers have a thing with massively inflating scores. Their scoring systems make sense only if you substract 2 points out of every score they give.
A video breaking down the "pain-body" concept present on the album.https://youtu.be/G9Uf-mWlPuw
>>110487569>most threads up right now are about this albumLol that this thread is still up a day later and all that weak artwork spam is gone. Forced moment, the nigga is a forced legend at this point. People are bored and wanna live through something important even if they force it. They’ll never not over-rate and -hype his shit, they NEED him to be important. Never thought it’d be the left side that killed culture, everything so funny.
kendrick raps like hes in a middle school talent show
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zI383uEwA6Qnew vid is up
kendrick clearly made this music for non-whites and thats a good thing (unironically)
>>110484536Kanye is Old Testament God complex Kendrick is New Testament God complex
>>110481580Rap trash is always scored 2 points higher than it is
>>110482352based cole's notes poster
>>110489872>>110489872Reject Post-modernism (Hip-Hop) Embrace modernism (beatiful eletric Blues)
Already better than Damn and it'll be even higher when Fantano/Pitchfork drops. Kendrick won again
I needed a win. Every dipshit in the world rushing to write a chuddy thesis on their opinion of this fairly experimental double album a couple hours after it came out was that win./mu/ is dead. long live /mu/. Stay filtered, failures.
>>110513647>seething that peeps don't take his heckin epic retards attempting poetry conversation piece album sewiouslygood riddancehave a good one over on r/hiphopheads my dude!
>>110504949B-but you dont get it anon, its not MEANT to have hits, or good beats, or a cohesive structure, its kendrick at his realest!
>>110505605>modern englishhey man i melt for you slaps

The Elden Ring of music.
>>110512072DEVIL, LAY DOWNDEVIL, LAY DOWN
>>110520015it's it's Ye
maybe its still Kanye West
>>110481580if you think this piece of shit is better than DONDA you have no fucking clue.fuck kendrick for this fart huffing '''album'''. just fucking record a netflix special you cunt. everyone's jerking him off for making 'deep' music but the reality is you pretty much never want to hear any but a handful of a few songs again
>>110486194Music journalists aren't people, Anon.
can anyone share this album?
>>110520841sure, here's the link:http://www.reddit.com/enjoy :)
>>110484536HURRY UP WITH MY DAMN CROISSANT
>>110485209You say that, but I would rather listen to Ye, KSG, and Donda over pretty much any Hip-Hop album released since 2018, besides IGOR.
>>110485540Just wait till the reeeeesss come out, and they will change their score to a 5
>>110491230>>110491332where are you guys hearing Donda 2?
>>110506486>This isn't for you whitey.Kendrick quite literally wouldn't have a career if it wasn't for whitey.
>>110494019It definitely isn't finished. It is like Donda, where he did a bunch of listening parties as the album progressed, he has only done one. The fact that one of the songs appeared completely redone on Future's new album supports this.
>>110485656>Denzel currythis is a joke right?
>>110518291a bloated, overrated mess? I agree
>>110522237>he didn't get a stem player
What did fagtano rate it?
>>110498419Dalek just released a new album soooooo
>>110522515what's wrong with denzel
>>110498401Some fucking energy man. Something to get people moving.
>>110481580album was great, you internet fags have just gotten so fucking radicalized and tribalized that you nitpick the littlest things as a basis for not liking something. lefties think it's too offensive and righties think it's too globohomo. the whole online conversation about music these days is flawed and pointless.
>>110505240They weren’t booing her for da N-word you bluepilled cuck faggot, they were booing because she sounded like shit
>>110482352PUT ME IN THE SCREENCAP
>>110488160Is there anyone more contemptible than troons who say music "bumps" or "slaps"
>>110498401GRODT. sick of this sad shit.
>>110527468>This wavy.made me want to throttle the cunt
>>110481580no one knows what RYM even is outside this slow board and a couple tranny discords. Literally go ask anyone who you think knows a lot about music and they will tell you never heard of it.
>>110502736Reactionary, apologetic, liberal white guilt was at an all time premium in 2017 because muh Drumpf.
>>110525747>not automatically liking whatever slop kendrick lamar shits out on wax is considered "radicalized" now
>>1104815803.5 is low? Also ur a faggot if u care this much about rym ratings
>>110486215Its his diary entry on working through fame, writers block, wanting to retreat from the foreground, personal growth and understanding of perspectives(which you might disagree with as growth) and the religious awakening of faith in a greater power, and that power being within yourself bringing you back among the people to spread the word. You may not agree with the word. You might prefer to call people faggots and tranny's. And that's fine, that's your word. But feel God and spread the word. I'm not religious. But so far I've enjoyed my first few listens. I don't know if it's a 10, but i'm enjoying it. It's kanye without the bipolar. Ego but restrained.
