Everything I've read says it adds so much more to the mix and surpasses his first two, can't wait to check it out.

After spending a couple weeks with it, I really really enjoy a whole lot of songs on this album. In time, it could even be my favorite Ye album.

If their beef with each other was real, they're apparently over it now. Apparently, they're bonding over MTV's lack of caring about arrogant black rappers.

Kanye said yesterday that a black man couldn't get a break, and that he and 50 are joining forces to fight the establishment!

That's a paraphrase, but you get the point.


I like that Kanye has the balls to say what he wants to say... but that inevitably leads to him saying dumb things sometimes. 2-way street there.

It's definitely an album that builds steam as it goes. It's so endearingly quirky, and the self-depracation juxtaposed with the boasting has reached a transcendently weird plane. I definitely approve, and I think it's the most consistently listenable rap album I've heard in years, surpassing both of Kanye's first two albums, even if it doesn't have as many obvious hits.

Curtis who?

Honestly, he's so conceited that I can't even listen to the man speak anymore. I still love his music, but there is nothing that irks me more than arrogance. He needs to get over himself.

I think he is really aware of it, and I think he plays it for laughs quite a bit. Listen to the track "Big Brother," there's actually a good bit of humility there.

I like Kanyes new album, the beats are different that what we usually hear. And I am happy that Kanye is winning, cause My friend will have to watch U2's ZooTV dvd since he lost the bet we made.

Would that be a bet based on the 50 Cent thing? It's really sad. I think he was just trying to tag along with someone who has remained relevant. 50 has had more mainstream singles, but has barely been involved with anything remotely interesting. Arrogance or not, Kanye is hard-working and devoted to music, not destorying Jim Sheridan's near-perfect body of work and promoting Vitamin Water with a single from 2 albums ago.

yes it's from the 50 thing. I too think Kanye is a man of music where as 50 is more about making the money and not really about the music.

I also like the one with Chris Martin also. Like the piano beat. There is another version out there with out chris martin and it sounds like a blues or jazz lounge Kanye is rapping in
