I really liked the singles themselves but I have to say, it was the quintessential Corporation versus Artistic Freedom battle.

Tha Carter IV's outro is depressing. I've listened to it three times and still can't believe that's SHYNE. Prison turned his voice and delivery into a low-grade Rick Ross.

I downloaded WTT the day it leaked, but still haven't listened to it. I just don't...care.

The new Danny Brown mixtape is really good, though. Guy has an ear for beats and is eccentric in a manner that feels less gimmicky that Odd Future.

And can you guys please stop quoting JapanAlex? I put him on ignore after a string of absurd posts he made in SW&D months ago. People quoting his stupidity so often is why I don't venture into this thread much anymore.

Am I seriously the only person that didn't like the Carter III? (I'm assuming besides CtK). Never really saw all the weezy hype and the third album more or less secured my perception of his downfall (from a somewhat decent mc to dude who keeps pushing out garbage). For the record I'm quite fond of Tha Carter II.

And after some reflection I feel like I came off as a bit of a dick in regards to Ye being better than Jay on WTT. I'm still of the impression that line for line Jay had a much better showing than Ye - regardless of auto pilot or not. I actually thought his lyricism was a step back from MBDTF where Ye showed some growth as a writer and actually was putting out some solid bars.

TC III, to me, gets a free pass for a few reasons, none of which have anything to do with the project a cohesive album. It was one of the last rap albums to both generate a huge buzz leading up to its release and then move a ton of units. It produced two singles that were wildly popular with casual and non-fans alike ("Lollipop" and "A Milli") and two singles that were generally well received ("Got Money" and "Mrs. Officer"). And the album hit stores when Wayne was arguably at his commercial peak, so there's a bit of rosy-tinted nostalgia for a lot of folks when they think about it.

For me, TC III offered some choice cuts. "A Milli" is one of those rare songs that seemingly everyone loving didn't alter my perception of it. I'm not sure there was a rapper who didn't do a freestyle over that beat. "Playing with Fire," "Let the Beat Build," and "Comfortable" are tracks that I frequently revisit.

But the finished product is a staggering 80 minutes. There's just too much excess fat for me to ever ponder whether or not it's a classic album. Wayne had never been more marketable and likely won't be again. This was his best chance to deliver that classic album. TC III was a commercial success, but he missed the mark in that respect.

eh, I wasn't as into hip hop then but around the time C3 was coming out I don't think anyone had illusions about weezy not being a main stream radio rapper. And even still I think C3 pulls some pretty interesting/non-radio friendly moves, beatwise it's his most musically sophisticated release by far and it's just a lot of fun. I think the real trick with C3 is that it is fucking chock full of hooks. Hook overload. There's some weird stuff going in there but it's still super catchy (to me at least), every song grabs your attention in some way. YMMV.

Carter III had a few great songs but I like Carter II a lot more overall. I think he was at his peak during Carter 2 or during the period between C2 and C3. Carter 1 had incredible production but he just wasn't that good at that point.

Big Sean's album is doo-doo.

i listen to Tha Carter IV this week end.
It is a f*** shame for Lil Wayne. The guy is not on the best track of his own album: interlude and outro.
Plus his lyrics are weaker than ever. Seriously the song John is basically a carbon copy of Rick Ross old song.
Lil Wayne should seriously understand that an album is not a compilation of singles and remixes and featuring.
Concentrate on your own music before claming stupid thongs about being the best.

ps. What do you guys think of J. Cole? My take is he's too inconsistent and is no where near as good as he thinks he is. He'll have songs where he just goes in and kills it and songs that suck ass. I think it's telling that he supposedly came close to losing his record deal and took him about three years to finally get an album out.

Jay may have good lyrics but for me Kanye just flows better on this album.

I've liked J. Cole for a while now haven't heard his album though, what's it called? The warm up mixtape is sick!

Friday Night Lights was J Cole's last big release I believe...the next one (official release on Jay's label I think?) comes out September 27th, some day as Big K.R.I.T.'s first official full lenght, Live From the Underground. Gonna be a big fucking day for hip hop. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

$5,000 says Big K.R.I.T.'s album shits on J. Cole's artistically.

Not that J. Cole's won't have good tracks, but, as an album.

What in your mind is the difference between the two? I like Big KRIT and J. Cole, for the record. I just don't get the KRIT championing. He's got great beats, but he's not the best lyricist and his narrative that seems to inspire everyone else seems like an Oxygen channel movie to me.

It's all good, Big K.R.I.T. still loves you! thumbs-up.gif
