I dont know if its just me, but when Kanye dropped College dropout, 99.9999999999999% of people thought he was the rebirth of "true" Hip hop. That album was instantly deemed a classic.
... then came the 'Flashing Lights' (pun intended) and some ppl started questioning his ego & bitchassness ways
Others like me justified his actions simply becuz he was such a raw MC

Then came Graduation.... dont get me wrong Graduation is nice... but Graduation & College Dropout dont contain the same artist in my opinon. Sure time & life experiences change one's personality, BUT in the scope of 3 albums... this drastic of a change is amazing. (not necessarily good)

With all the hype that surrounds him & his music... Am I in the minority of hip hop listeners when i say... i really could care less aboout Kanye's up in coming 4th album next month?

Goes to show you that money and fame changes a persons mentality. I listened to the new single off his 4th album "Love Lockdown" and personally I hated the song, just couldn't get into it. College Dropout and Graduation are great albums but I prefer College Dropout more than Graduation. As for his Huge Ego problem its just a damn shame as to all i can say, hopefully his ego won't reach the level that 50 cent ego has But he still represent the Chi so I give him his props for that.

I wont rush my damn self.

Much of his album is gonna be too mainstream.

There's gonna be gratuitous use of the synthesizer.

There's gonna be lyrics about "bitches, hoes, and cars".

And there's gonna be lots of Lil Wayne.


Now, I'm hoping for him to prove me wrong, but he's become an arrogant artist with half as much hunger as he used to have.

....his new album is gonna suck PERIOD. I don't like to judge a person's album based on their 1st single nor is it right to do so..........but c'mon, YOU CAN'T SING KANYE!!!!!! The Kanye West from the 1st 3 albums is prolly gone now, we ain't gonna see that signs of rebirth again with this album......I can sense it. Hell, 50 Cent's LAST ALBUM might actually be better than Kanye's new album (I'm not making a prediction, just an assumption).

I think this album came about because of the personal trama he went through this past year. Any takers on that...?

No, it's true. Kanye admitted in an interview that he went with this route in order to take the frustrations and emotions that he had at the time of his mother's death and transform into "art", as Kanye claimed.

"Self-Conscious" =======> "All Falls Down"
"18 Years" ============> "Gold Digger"
"Bittersweet" ==========> "Bittersweet" feat. John Mayer (a bonus track on Graduation)

If Kanye's mom died, then I understand. It's hard for a musician to work well (or work period) if someone close to them died (especially the person who gave them life). I'll give all the time West needs until he gets up on his feet and produces some class:sick shit but I think that's gonna take a while. Cut him some slack for now.

I agree with Jak......as much of a hater I am of Kanye West I did notice a dramatic change from College Dropout/after his horrible car accident and now he has money and his mother is gone he seems confused! Maybe he should take a spiritual sabbatical to find himself..........I've one too many stories about Kanye being gay, saying he doesn't listen to rap music in his apartment because its too nice, saying he wants to pose nude, and other bizarre shit. Take a break Kanye.............he believes that fake shit is real!
