    Bruh, Ak is a punk for dissing VA like that. I mean, he's a punk in general, but definitely for dissing the 804 and 757.

    it may be that, or seems that Big Sean did change somn in his verse or anticipated Kendrick's verse or it was just by coincidence that he said 'and I'm over niggas saying they're the hottest/then run to the hottest niggas just to stay hot/I'm one of the hottest because I flame drop/drop fire, and not because I'm name dropping, hall of fame droppin' regarding Kendrick's verse where he is calling names, (this name dropping which seems to be why everybody said he bodied it) and also he said 'and I ain't taking shit from nobody unless they're og's cause that ain't the way of a og,' seemingly to counter, or again, just by coincidence in response to Kendrick saying the barber shop debate about ogs and he drops the og names and said the rest are just new niggas and going in on them. Electronica verse was kl too though and was the shortest, he prolly better than both on it but Kendrick is the new fad or whatever so he gets it.

    Yezzus was an excellent album...around the time no body did what Kanye did on that first I hated it...but then I was like "damn this nigga produced this shit, and wrote the songs..."
    Kanye created pure art....then he hit us wit life of Pablo and that album was 🔥af
    It's like Kanye knew trump would be president...Remember... it was different time

    The level of ignorance poured at this moment is astonishing, the fact that you never wen't further than your bloc and heard diferent styles of music it reminds me of white people saying racist and ignorant comentaries about afro music just because they didnt knew about it or the complexity of it, Yeezus is the new 808 & Heathbreaks, tyler's IGOR is the example of the influence and the forward this albums still today. Read and dive a little bit more if not for insterest at least for the mere obligation of your job, in music and specially in hiphop is not just kick snare and an old sample of soul art is far complex and forward than you can see.

    Kendrick had the best verse but now since it's settled and people went back and listened to big sean verse. His verse has become more relevant in discussion to think if he would of for example diss kendrick in the next 12 becasue he just heard kdot name drop every famous rapper on the planet . While at the same time diss every rapper in the most lyrical way ever. In some way I take a side because with name drop kendrick would had an okay verse compared to sean.

    it depends on the length of an album but say the average album is like 20 tracks I would say at least 9 to 10 of those tracks need to be great for it to be a good album.

    How many songs make a great album?

    Its a ratio thing. If you have 10 songs and 5 of them really take off, I think thats a great album
    think of it like a three pointer in basketball, %50 shooting from the three is fuckin amazing
