My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is comfortably better than anything Kendrick Lamar has done, and is widely regarded as the best rap album of the decade. I'd put A$AP Rocky's last two albums above him too. Same with Run the Jewels.
I used to like De La Soul a lot, but I've seen them live 3 times now and they weren't great any time. I still listen to their classics but their half arsed live performances left a bad taste with me. Plus their last album was muck.
Anyone else going to the live premiere of Waves in the cinema on the 11th? Live feed of his fashion reveal at Madison Square Garden plus a full play through of Waves. Gonna be so strawberry floating good.

£18 a ticket in Glasgow
Fancied it but strawberry float that, still £7.20 for Unlimited customers.
Listened to new Kanye on the way to work this morning, rather enjoyed for first listen. Thankfully only seems to do a little bit of that stupid Future/Young Thug style shouting rubbish that all the crap newer rappers seem to do where its not even words they are saying.
Beats are pretty good too. Still don't get the hype with Chance the Rapper, can't get into him and his voice is annoying.
Well, I've listened to it twice and it sounds 100x better on headphones. I've never seen such a disparity between listening to something on 'phones and listening through speakers, but there it is. It's (mostly) good! Very spiritual, which I don't know if I like.
Biggest "Kanye" of the whole thing (which I'm coining as meaning something that would have been otherwise perfect ruined by Kanye West being Kanye West) is the end of FML, where the hungover alien pops in and I want to burn everything to the ground.
So, yeah, right now I think it's pretty good, with a few questionable decisions here and there. Which is, if I'm being honest, exactly what I thought of Yeezus when it came out. But then that grew and grew on me and now I think it's strawberry floating incredible, so I hope this does the same.
