i really fucking hope he has a team of people or someone who gives a fuck about his ass...not Kanye the artist and star, but Kanye the person.

Kim has a whole family.

Who does Kanye have? Moms gone, dad is...I dunno, that relationship has always been confusing to me.

for me.

It was a shame he had his untimely passing after that album. Sometimes I wonder what he'd be up to nowadays if he were still here.

808s was the "what's happening" moment.

MBD has a couple jams no question but he wasn't the same. Went from a cocky MC who had a wide range of content to a guy who just liked to rap about himself.

28. "sure but isnt 808 the album that changed the game?"
In response to Reply # 22


  

          

like, everything before that were things that took the existing sound and represented the peak of that sound but then 808 created something new which paved the way for Drake and all the singing rappers of today

I mean, at least how it was explained to me. I still have not heard that album. Its a big ol' "no thanks" for me.

Obviously 808s was huge and defined a new era, and led to Drake and all the artists you reference.

When I said it was the "what's happening" moment I was referring to when he lost *me* in particular.

I think I was out after Late Registration. To me, his high note was "We Major". I heard that track on the radio and it vaulted him to #1 artist at that time. Downhill after that for me.

31. "As hard as it is to imagine, I could see his media power diminishing."
In response to Reply # 27


          

I mentioned in here that he was dating Irina Shayk, and most people replied like that was the 1st time they heard of it. So it wasn't even making waves like that.

On the other hand, ANYONE who Kim dates is going to be big news (just look at her past). Her wedding with relative no-name Kris Humphries was the biggest event in pop culture at one point.

Kanye benefited a lot from the well-oiled Kardashian media machine. Tipping off paps, crafting life events to create storylines and subplots, etc. Literally everything they do gets tons of media coverage, no matter how insignificant it is in the grand scheme of themes. Meanwhile, Kanye pretty much had to do things that were extraordinarily controversial or meaningful to generate the same level of headlines for himself.

If Bruh Bruh is looking for that same level of media magnetism post-Kardashian, it's gonna be a cold world out for him. Which is kinda scary in a way, because he's gonna have to be even more erratic and polarizing to draw eyeballs to himself.

In response to Reply # 31


  

          

I just imagine that the Vinn Diagram of die hard KK fans and Kanye fans didn't have that much overlap pre their merger. and the KK market was bigger than his so I guess I can see why he thought the synergies would be good from a branding perspective (until of course he started making songs about fantasizing about killing her).

He could grow Irina Shayk's brand but yeah I don't think she does much for his brand.

.....Or this dude could get some help and change what he thinks is important.

In response to Reply # 33


          

Irina Shayk has been at the forefront of modeling for like a decade and is already a known commodity. She's also almost 40. I don't see much room to grow to her brand.

Meanwhile, Kim's 2nd "biggest" baby sister is already the highest paid person in Shayk's field and apparently worth twice as much. And she does a fraction of the shows that models like Shayk have to do.

The scale and reach of their respective audiences are just two different levels.

He made her whole look, and had her throw out her whole wardrobe.
My man has a stake in her fashion business which he help make...lol

She was a cheesy reality chick coming off a focked up marriage...
Kanye introduced her to the fashion world and front row seats to
the top designers in the world

Irina is an elite model, and Kanye is using this move for his upcoming
Yeezy/Gap venture. Irina is a stud in the elite fashion world.

Educate yourself homie...Kim doesn’t even look human anymore.
Kim ain’t nowhere near the level and style of Irina

Kanye got what he needed and bounced.

Kanye already had his company good music, and was known GLOBALLY
selling millions of records, and producing almost everyone in the music
industry.

Kanye released his first Yeezys in 2009. He got with Kim in 2012

Kim wasn’t known globally before Kanye. When Kim was just a sex tape chick
and Paris Hilton’s assistant, Kanye was winning Grammys and AA.

Kanye is a talent and his history speaks for itself...TALENT
making music, making shows, making fashion

Kim laid on her back and pushed a sex tape.

And Kendall? She isn’t even respected in the fashion world,
because a lot of her connections came by way of Kanye.

You hate the black man that much?

He was mad that the dating rumors weren't generating the level of press he wanted. Now the press that it is generating is even worse for him.

Even after Kim gets her cut, he has more money than he needs. He has a legacy. He has kids.

Stack your bread, mind your business, fuck dope women privately, focus on your family, live your life, take your meds, drink your water, exercise, and go to the doctor regularly for check ups.

I hope he has 20 years of grown man ass life and swag.
He made it. Ain't shit else to prove.

Most people I know in my personal life are still "fuck Kanye forever." And I feel like the vibe here is basically the same but maybe I've missed something.

In response to Reply # 0


          

He's been out and about with fashion stuff lately....but he's wearing an all over face mask.

He was in the studio with Tyler last week, and was at the finals recently too....full face mask.

No one seems to be talking Ye musically and the buy leaks group has dried up too....which makes me think Ye isn't putting out a record anytime soon either.

That said, he's gotta be in the public somewhat to promote the Gap line (he's always wearing the same black Gap jacket that isn't out in black yet). Plus doing lazy but weird stuff to stay on the sneaker/streewear blogs by wearing Nike's and wearing Nike socks with Adidas.

My guess: Dude doesn't wanna be around people right now....but kinda has to and he'd probably be wearing a mask even if he didn't have to at the moment.

time until afterwards, when you can gauge the impact. You can absolutely say that 808's and Heartbreak was ahead of it's time, because you can look at the artists inspired by it. But I remember people saying that when the Ye album came out, and looking back...nah...

Popular social media influencer trying to tag along with every celebrity circle and stay relevant. He's basically just throwing out stock endorsements to hype the project.

The Kanye album will sound like every other recent album.

Yeezus didn’t sound like anything else out at the time. It didnt sound good to me but it was still a new sound.

64. "Most of Yeezus sounded like a Travis Scott mixtape,"
In response to Reply # 62
Mon Jul-19-21 01:32 PM by Soldado

          

the production of the 1st single was literally a reworking of one of Marilyn Manson's biggest records, etc.

If Yeezus didn't sound like anything else to you then you missed every other work it was explicitly or implicitly derived from.

808s was the last album of Kanye truly pushing the envelope.

Everything since is just an amalgamation of whoever is writing/producing for Kanye and whoever inspired THEM (808s was too but it was a groundbreaking album and Kanye is rightfully credited for having his name on the front).

To be clear NOTHING exists in a vacuum. Even albums that are ahead of their time take cues from things that exist just under the surface.

808s was very much T-pain, Cudi (Plain pat, Emile) and Jeff Bhasker's ideas crashing into each other.

That doesn't make it any less groundbreaking.

Yeezus didn't sound like a Travis Scott tape at all (def had influences). Travis wasn't out here getting gesaffelstein or arca to make rap records.

Kanye has always been an excellent curator. All of his albums are multiple disciplines and maybe even opposing points smashing up against each other for forward progress.

----

That said. I can agree that I don't know how forward-thinking ANYTHING can sound in 2021. Monoculture has made it hard for sub-genres to really gestate (w/ being disturbed) and become solid enough for superstars to pull from.

or just a perfection of a particular sound.

Rick Ross "Deeper Than Rap" might be my last personal classic. And that wasn't him reinventing the wheel as much as it was him just honing in on fleshing out that JL/Runners/Inkredibles audio landscape.

He's made dope albums and mixtapes after that, but to me, that was when the recipe came together to near perfection. It was a new high without a new sound.

From then til now, we've had various artists try to separate themselves from the pack (most have been content to do what everyone else is doing lol). But I honestly can't of anything that's really made me tap on a new vein.

I think all "new" things must contain an air of familiarity

I think the warp tour rap of the new generation is definitely a "new vein". Whether you like it or not is something else but you have emo-rap now so far along that it can reach back to emo-rock for vocal styles and cues.

I do wish we would see a sonic leap forward though. I am not sure where it would come from but I'd love to see sonics just be revolutionized.

Can't judge whether something is "ahead of its time" til you see what happens/comes after it. At least a few years, if not longer.

I'd rather these people who are present just try and break down what the beats sound like from an actual audiophilic standpoint. Heavy drums, heavy bass, synths, electro feel, boom bap feel, funky, jazzy, etc. That's not only more appropriate and apt than "ahead of its time," but it's also at least something tangible that you can sink your teeth into in terms of expectations. "Ahead of its time" is meaningless both literally as explained above, and figuratively in terms of trying to actually figure out what you might expect from this album sonically.

vocal about enjoying his gospel album. I still listen to it to this day....like...not sit down and listen start to finish like some Jesus freak....
but I genuinely enjoy every song on that album and I have it peppered throughout several different playlists.

I just would be interested to see how far he can take it...

In response to Reply # 63


  

          

"falls off" then at first I'm still listening to every release at lease once to give them a chance. After a certain number of disappointments though I'll start to check reviews and forums first to see if that artist is "back" or at least if the record is worth checking out. It's only after a couple of those that I truly get to the "don't care" point and won't even click on a thread.

For Kanye, yeah I still care. I'm probably still at the point where I'll check out the album. But he's getting really close to that last category for me.

I think my initial criticism stands, it sounds unfinished and could have been great if he spent some time polishing some of it, but I I find I put that album in rotation (at least a few songs) I thought I would at the time.

But I haven't listen to anything since that with any regularity.

There was a ton of buzz about the EXISTENCE of the listening party.

But I haven't really seen anyone who was there commenting on the music that was played.

That's kinda weird.

All sorts of writers who were there came out of that like "yea, I was there, and so was Celebrity X Y and Z, and Kanye played some music but uh...listening to rap records playing off a PA in a cacophonous arena while a bunch of people make small talk isn't exactly an easy environment for having takeaways about what the music was.

He's been trash as a musician and as a human being for some time now. I don't wish him any ill will don't get me wrong, I hope he's healthy mentally and all that ...

... but I'll in all likelihood do with this album what I've done with all his albums and work since like 2013 or so, and listen to the first 30secs-1min of each song, hate it, skip to the next, and forget about the entire heap of trash the next day.

My brother & I decided to spend a few days in Miami. We got here on Tuesday and leave on Saturday. We didn't know til today that the Rolling Loud music festival is this weekend. This city is about to be nuts.

Anyway, there are rumors floating around that Kanye will show up and perform stuff from the new album, even though he wasn't advertised on the bill.

Florida's numbers have been disturbingly bad in recent weeks. This festival could very easily be a super spreader event.

White bros.

“Ye never lost lmao”

“Happy Ye is doing things his way”

Etc.

Sounding like straight up Rogan fans or some
shit.


Putting aside Ye’s shitty personality, the music is
trash and the release process more like a big
Fuck You to his stans who actually want new
music for whatever reason.

It honestly seems like he occasionally tests to see
how far the cult will go.

Dude was literally caping for Trump and folks in
here just can’t let him go. Fucking weird.

Apparently a lot of people loved them so I'm guessing they'll love this one too.

But all I heard was the usual generic repetitive production, lazy writing with him doing the usual gimmick of repeating some mediocre bar multiple times like it was hot, etc.

It's overwhelmingly being carried by the features. Not even the quality and substance of the features, because they were pretty forgettable. But just the names of the features and the novelty of them appearing on a Ye album.

The Hov feature was the highlight obviously. But once you get passed the awe of them reuniting and Hov talking that throne talk, you're left with the realization that the track is still mediocre and it was a meh Jay verse, even by his current standards.

This would be bad for a demo, let alone a retail album. I'm sure the usual people will dig deep and try to pull something redeeming from it though.

Because if so, I won’t even give it a hate listen.

Yeezus sucked, but at least it wasn’t generic.

Pablo at least had a few songs and parts of songs that were great.

Since then he’s been musically boring as hell.

On one hand, I appreciate the dedication to trying to make it as good as he thinks it could be.

On the other, I want some more adulthood. Don’t announce it until you’re done with it. Quit trying to cheat the system. Quit creating all of this artificial pressure on yourself and forcing folks to wait on you. It feels like a trick to create additional energy for your music. You’re a big enough deal still that folks wanna wait for you but it would go a long way if you could even pretend that you had your musical shit together. If it’s jamming, put it the fuck out. If it’s great, let it go. If you’re a genius or whatever, your rollouts shouldn’t look like a bad college student getting ready for a midterm. Especially with an era where folks seem to have it together for the most part on this issue.

If his albums are gonna be like video games with a gang of patches and updates, I'd rather him go back to the Pablo album and fix that one. At least that one had good bones. Get a fucking 3000 verse for 30 hours (get QTip too if he'll call you back), change that putrid Stretch My Hands verse and get Kendrick back on there, give me a week with all of the different cuts of Wolves to make one really complete one, and then we could get some shit rolling!

And shit, if he for real trolled up an album that he doesn't actually have even kinda sorta ready, then that is worse than a current day video game. Regardless, I'll head back to Pray for Haiti, updating my Griselda playlist, and making my Nas and Jayz playlists..it's been too long. I also need to refurbish my grillin and chillin mix.

established artists shoulder a lot of pressure to deliver the goods.

expectations can ruin a person...which is something that I suspect is one of the many layers at play with Lauren Hill (I mean, among the many many many layers)

if hes able to just make then more music then more power to him, I think he should even double his output.

fuck it, he should just go crazy and just make a lot of shit because that's how you burn through shitty eras and ideas - ya gotta work it out of your system you know?


I say this not as a Kanye fan but as a person who knows the struggle that is the creative process.

I think this new way he is working is interesting when thinking of it through the creators lens.

In this quick short process he keeps the issues that most creators have of questioning their work when they sit on it too long is eliminated.

Sitting on work too long leads to waaaayy too much doubt and leads to shit not coming out.

117. "The good Friday approach"
In response to Reply # 112


  

          

Would work a lot better. He'd get to test some stuff out. Folks would be happy to hear the sketches and/or outtakes. It would be one song a week. And when he threw out one that was REALLY JAMMING, the reactions would give him a clue when he was barking up the right tree. And if he made some bullshit, those reactions would have a chance to chase him away from some unlistenable yodeling or whatever.

But this short album, halfass album, no album stuff is just making some folks turn on him as an artist for stuff other than the music. And that's a shame, because he has had some amazing stuff along with a parade of rock solid and jamming stuff too. I'm not sure if a chart somewhere says that this is an uncool stance to have, but that's where I'm at.

So yeah, either he should hush until he has a finished thing or he should GOOD Friday it up and release a song ever so often as an event and then collect a set of strong ass jobs and weave them together some kind of way. Then, he could collect the praise, take the dough from having more of his songs on random commercials, then go make some more expensive shoes that I won't gaf about. Its a good deal for all of us!

By 'pressure' does the OP mean that Kanye's output has to be near flawless because his failure means the label doesn't meet financial projections along with execs losing face in front of the corporate side?

Seeing the mixed/lukewarm reaction to the music that was played in Atlanta (which honestly surprised me), I wouldn't be surprised if he just lost interest and shelved the project indefinitely.

This is why he usually has to rely on these eye-opening outrage/controversy/spectacle promotional blitzes to drum up mainstream media hype immediately in the run up to an album. Because if it was left to the just the actual music, he'd struggle to attract a comparable level of interest.

That album isn’t coming out in 2 weeks. Even if it does, it won’t be a finished album..

The last 10-ish years have been rough for him musically. Lots of shenanigans and issues with getting stuff out. Lots of uneven releases too, even when he tried to keep it short. His core run had a lot of the same issues if we look back at it honestly but the resulting music was somewhat easily much better and easier to take in/understand what he was going for. And the try-hard vibe of lots of it was and still is endearing whereas now it just comes off as sloppiness.

I’ll openly vouch for most songs from the beginning through Cruel Summer. And at least a chunk of it stands up very well. It’s a great run even if it’s mostly over in terms of me expecting any kind of reliable and/or consistent work.

I tried making a kanye playlist recently. There’s like 2 hours of outtakes and loosies and I was jamming just putting it together. There’s 4 albums where I basically dragged the whole thing into the playlist. That and most of watch the throne too. I think it’s gonna go really well when I play it on random. It’s 7 hours and there’s shit missing. I can’t do that with a bunch of acts. He’s good as an music act if he never makes even one more likable SONG.

I LOVE his breakdowns, but I'm kinda through, his scope of albums seems to be limited.

With the current season focused on Kanye again, I'm like...please do someone else that isn't Kanye, Tyler, Beyonce, Lauren

To me it's like listening to somebody read a Rap Genius page


He's doing another show called Key Notes that's a little more interesting to me because I'm not musical at all, where he picks a chord progression or style of notation and spends an hour showing how flexible or pervasive that technique is across artists and genres


But yea, Dissect has always been a bail out, finished with everything else listen for me

it certainly sounded far better than Jesus is King or Ye, two clunkers

Pablo's highs are very high but it's extremely uneven, and I loved Yeezus (my favorite) but I get why it polarized so many people

Depending on who you ask, he hasn't made a good album in over 8 years

I was optimistic about this one for some reason. The abruptness of the moment encouraged me I guess - like he knew he had heat - but it's clear he's just totally winging it still.

In my mind, he wouldn't dare put out a bad album named after his mama. If so, I'd consider him 'gone' forever.

I long for the GOOD Friday days. He clearly had a slew of resources around him helping him out and songs were coming together like nobody's business. He eventually settled on a dozen or so of them and went to town making those songs as good as he wanted them to be and everything else either got cut or thrown over to Watch the Throne.

But now, even when it seems like there's folks around, we'll get a Pablo where its obvious half of the songs aren't done or there's something that someone somewhere should've cussed at him about.

The Ye/7-song cuz Jesus yawl era had a lot of goodness to it too (Gonna Love Me for instance) but it still feels like he squandered a shot to have another special set of songs.

In response to Reply # 139


          

Like their artist is the only artist to ever be criticized?

Everyone is picking on poor lil billionaire cultural icon Kanye. Lol.

The persecution complex is eerily similar to Trump supporters. Everybody just up and started plotting against him through no fault of his own, of course.

It’s OK for other people to not be as infatuated with him as you are. He’s given them plenty of valid reasons.

There’s no deep state conspiracy to subjugate the silent majority here. Lol.

Most of the people “hating” on Kanye will openly say that they were once big fans. And his antics, decrease in music quality, etc caused them to hop off the bandwagon. Essentially, he left them as much as they left him.

It’s really not that nefarious. Lol.

I dont know any fans like that but fans tend to go overboard.. because they are fans.

never seen this before but again, they are fans. Its what “some” fans of artist do.

not sure where you get the idea I’m infatuated with him. I haven’t even heard his new shit.

another weird take.

I agree, I was a huge fan until 808’s. I stopped chasing or expecting greatness from him long ago.

>It’s really not that nefarious. Lol.

I said hilarious not nefarious.

You really went all the way in on a post that wasn’t deep at all.

Kanye’s fan base is still massive, but he doesn’t reciprocate the love of that fan base.

The fans give Kanye undying support and consistent benefit of the doubt
and
Kanye gives the fans $300 shoes and unfinished albums every 2 years

His fans get picked on because they behave like suckers. And I’ll admit that at times I’m one of the suckers - I’ve never bought the shoes, but I’m still always going to be excited for a new Kanye project (even if the excitement is fleeting)

but there are people who really despise his ass while also checking for all his new shit.

Shit is hilarious.

Its like the people who tell everyone they will no longer watch the NFL while sitting in a sports bar in Sundays in November.

Are they mad at Ye or mad at themselves for falling for the banana in the tail pipe every time his name or project is mentioned?

he makes it easy to hate him, tbh.

The quality of his music was basically his one saving grace.

Now we don't know if he's writing his own shit, and the music just HASN'T been hitting.

Agreed on the saving grace part. And yeah, he's a bit much even when he's on his best behavior. It is crazy to think how much folks rooted him when he was the regular dude mama's boy rapper surrounded by pimps, thugs, drug kingpins, and super duper ultra rappitty rap folks. Now his mom has been dead for almost 15 years, he married and is about to divorce KimK, his shoes are a bigger deal than his songs, and he can't get an album out when he says he will to save his life even though he clearly still has mountains of resources and help to make it happen.

I'm fairly confident at this point that he's never written his own stuff all alone. AKA there's always been some folks lurking around his work at least throwing in some lines and/or editing to the lines. GLC, Cons, Rhymefest, Pusha T, Common, Twista, Q-Tip, Drake, 2Chainz, Chance, maybe even JayZ and Cam, somebody.

Now, does that mean he's been pulling a Puffy where he's coming in reading the pages and not writing ANYTHING? I want to believe that isn't the case, but I wouldn't be shocked if that is what's going on or if that's been the deal the whole time.

As a side quest: I always wonder if Game is writing his own stuff and lurking around ghost-writing. Or if he's a person who is getting stuff written for him in exchange for gang stuff.

As a 2nd side quest: I've also wondered how much of Tupac's early Death Row stuff was handed to him by Daz, Kurupt, and some of the other folks who were around. Big Syke or some shit. Some of that All Eyez on me still sounds Daz-ish. I could be amazingly wrong and I love me some Tupac raps, but IJS. Maybe they just gave damn near completed songs to Tupac and that's why. IDK.

Which is a backhanded sort of compliment but by the third song on this album it has a way of sounding real familiar but very current.
