"c'mon bruh Westside Gunn -Sincerely Adolf!!!"


  

          

I haven't listened to it a bunch because I need Jesus right now, but this joint is fire right? talk about it.

Do ya'll like the extensive stove god features?

How freaking boom bap is this?

Is this the best HWH or just the best since HWH 3?

Absolute fire.

>Do ya'll like the extensive stove god features?

Yes. On an album full of strong features, he stole the show for me. Can’t wait for his next album, and it’s not hometown bias! He’s ridiculously entertaining.

>How freaking boom bap is this?

Man....I was initially disappointed at the lack of Daringer.....until I heard. Beats are top notch.

>Is this the best HWH or just the best since HWH 3?

I loved 7. That was my favorite. This one is right there. Time will tell.

It sounds like someone advised him to say 'hey yo' then start rapping with minimal shenanigans and he tried for real to do it. I'm glad he did it.

I'm not the right person to ask about Stove cuz I like him. He has at least one line that catches me on just about anything he's on.

And yeah, them booms and baps are up on the scene. It can be done.

I need to listen to the whole series again. There's hella good times throughout..that's for sure. If he really does stop after the 2nd half of 8, he will have had a fun azz run during this 'stay in your lane but do it right' era. So many guys like him got a chance to shine that they probably wouldn't have gotten in that 'you have to try to be multiple things on an album or you're not going to be viewed as important' era.

lots of warbled, fuzzy, and otherwise distorted samples, roughly chopped. almost like boom bap with a vaporwave aesthetic, or maybe oneohtrix point never's replica era, or constrobuz's beats on mfn exquire's projects from the early 2010s, or some combination of all of the above. i can't quite put my finger on it but i do like it quite a lot. i feel like there was some of this sound on mach-hommy's pray for haiti but it was less dialed up and the instrumentals were more straighforward. some the beats on HWH8 are a truly experimental and feel like a logical progression to a more pyschedelic and lavish sound, coming from the grimy, dark, and moody post-alchemist daringer sound that dominated most of griselda's early and middle catalog. there are also a tasteful number of drumless beats, mostly towards the end. they're a nice break from the crunchy snares found in the first half of the project. some of the features are expected (conway, boldy, jada) but others are from out of nowhere (sauce walka?!) and they all kill it. the only lackluster verses are from westside and that's expected at this point in his career as it's known that he mostly gets by on his delivery and has an occasional truly good bar here and there. overall a very enjoyable listen that i wanted to immediately go back to. exemplary stuff!

Love the production, he's mostly tolerable (heavy guest list helps).

Very good album. I do think his rapping was better before he started "getting better"

Have to admit I'm getting tired of the Hitler gimmick at this point. Quality music is rare these days, so I suppose I have to stomach it on some level.

On a positive note, he seems to have gotten the best out of all the guests on here and Westside wasn't too much of a slouch in comparison. He rapped better on Flygod to me, so that's why I can't rate it better than that release.

So he'll always be too big to fail for me


I just love that weird nasally compression


Production has a hazy vibe that reminds me of that and Edan's Beauty & The Beat too


This is going to get a LOOOOT of play this fall, especially as the summer heat wave breaks and I start walking to work instead of taking the bus.

I feel like WSG is really hitting his creative stride as of late. I liked/loved all four of the projects he dropped in 2020, and this is very much a worthy progression.

And it's kind of amazing how Stove God makes everything better,
