On whatever podcast Chris Rock and ?uestlove were on together, he said Kanye's My Beautiful is the best record of all time...interesting he went back to Prince here.

My beef with Chris Rock is why he hates on Baby Be Mine... which is one of my favorite joints on Thriller..

?uestlove and chris rock. that's internet gold. Purple Rain is pretty amazing. But Thriller is the pinnacle.

...I will say that "Thriller" didn't have any bad songs, on it, I will say "Baby Be Mine" was & is good enough for radio back then (AM radio) and today (those flackback stations) but it is kind of the least liked song on it but damn that album basically was a bible to how pop artists afterwards should make an album where every song could be a single.
I remember when the album/soundtrack for Purple Rain, I had it on cassette and listened to it that summer of '84, I didn't see the movie until eight or nine years later and it all made sense cause I had a pic of what the movie was like just from the songs; but that album was pretty dope and still a classic (so is the movie), I was listening to hip-hop & new wave rock back more than anything else but like Chris Rock said in an era when rap music was in demand you could still play a Prince joint in the mix.
