Kanye's insistence that Cudi is talented has me much more concerned for his judgment and mental health than any of his tweets

I’ve been too traumatized by the TLOP rollout to not assume that this is gonna become another epic exercise in goalpost-moving.

7 tracks is pretty great. Immediately makes it seem different than anything he has done. On the other hand, Pablo still seems pretty bad to me.

NY Times piece is interesting: Kanye comes across relatively sympathetically, not that this somehow makes ye a good record or excuses his comments. " just standing up and saying what you feel, and not even doing a lot of research on it" - you are so close and yet so far from understanding what the problem is here.

"Reborn" on Kids See Ghosts sounds good on its own on a playlist.

KSG holds up surprisingly well for me. I didn't even like it that much the first time around, but Freeee and Reborn keep popping into my head. Though in the case of "Freee" my mental version replaces "i don't feel pain anymore" with "i don't wa-bang anymore." no idea why.

I strongly believe pre MBDTF Kanye the really great rap producer >>> Kanye the important troubled "genius"

I don't think it's a coincidence that Daytona and KTSE, the two that seem like him making fairly conventional records in the style of the respective artists are so far and away better than the other half baked junk straining to be "important"

Gotta say, the flip of this is pretty brilliant, (samples are at 1:06 and 1:18):

does he do a lot of the production anymore or he like a george lucas type thing now? like his dudes pick out a bunch of stuff and they he just okays it?

i know he made a big deal about "hand producing" Nas's album (which has the worst production of any of these), so I didn't know if it was a Dr. Dre type thing where he's just taking credit for daz or mel man's or whoever's beats

The Desus & Mero Chain (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 6 July 2018 16:43 (three months ago) Permalink

“Troubled genius” era Kanye does have MBDTF and TLOP, two of my least favorite albums of his, but then there’s Yeezus which I love & is maybe the most troubled genius-ish of all. So idk, maybe more hit-and-miss but I’m OK with it.

This is the first album of his I’ve had a “it’s fine” response to, nothing really wrong with it but haven’t come back to it much. Think the beat at the end of the first track is v cool though.

My sense is he pieces together other people’s contributions, although it looked like the Pusha album had a couple tracks where it was just him credited on production. Of course you could say his co-producers maybe aren’t as good on their own, but then you could also say possibly the same’s true of him right now - I don’t know.

nova, Friday, 6 July 2018 21:17 (three months ago) Permalink

I thought that he had people go out and source/buy a bunch of records, then he sat down and chopped the samples himself. Who knows though (and he's always got Mike Dean engineering and probably co-producing too, right?).

At one point, Kimmel asked Kanye about the situation where families were separated at the border. “Whether we like his personality or not, his actions are really what matter. You so famously and so powerfully said ‘George Bush doesn’t care about black people.’ It makes me wonder, what makes you think that Donald Trump does?” Kanye then went silent for a few seconds, and the show went to commercial.

So there's supposed to be another one coming out this weekend.

It's amazing how quickly I've gone from salivating over a Kanye release to being ambivalent about one. Regardless of the personal drama, the quality of his stuff has dive-bombed this year. He probably just needs to slow down and stop releasing music for a while. High chance that this record won't be any good.

if he'd announced a yeezus sequel at the start of the year i would have been very excited but now it's very hard to care

shocking that he's actually following through on releasing multiple albums in one year which he promised a bunch of times before but never delivered on

He also described Donald Trump and InfoWars’ Alex Jones as “matrix-breakers,” and he falsely stated that there were only about 800 slaves in the United States in the 1800s. (In fact, it was almost 4 million.) And he said he wants to build a flying car factory in Chicago with Tesla alums and announced that “a woman’s pussy count goes back to zero” after undergoing any plastic surgery.

Anyway, if you’re still interested in hearing new Kanye music after all that,
