Today we celebrate the most influential album of all time... 808s and Heartbreak (not a Drake album). This album will always have a special place in my heart as it was the first encounter I had with my idol Kanye West, when I heard the song "Heartless". My favorite songs from the album are "Say You Will" and "Street Lights". This is a fine example of Autotune used at it's best. Kanye uses autotune to express the pain and sadness he felt after his mom's death and his breakup.
ALBUM: Radio Silence
TOP TRACKS: She's My Hero, Traveling Light, Knockturnal
RELEASED: 17 Nov 2017
Summary: The 42 year-old Brooklyn emcee shows he's still got it on a poetic and political set of tracks.
As a set of songs, the album's 11-song track listing is pretty solid, lacking many weak cuts, although it does significantly trail off towards the latter half of the album. Kweli handles most of the load himself, although he does incorporate some fresher faces such as Anderson Paak, BJ the Chicago Kid, Jay Electronica, and Waka Flaka Flame. One of the highlights of this album is Kweli's refreshing lyricism on tracks like "She's My Hero" and "The Magic Hour."
The album starts very strong in its first half; "Traveling Light" has a soulful Paak verse over groovy Kaytranada production, "She's My Hero" is an emotional story telling track of the corrupt criminal case of Breasha Meadows (I didn't know about it before this track, I would recommend researching it), and "Chips" and "Knockturnal" are fantastic high energy tracks packed with bars about street life, prostitution, and crime.
However, I think this album falls short as a whole. Kweli never really explained the "Radio Silence" concept, even on the title track, and many of the tracks don't necessarily feel like they belong on the same project. On the final track, cleverly titled "Write at Home", we are given a LENGTHY spoken word session on topics such as science, religion, energy, and thoughts. It's all very odd. I feel like Kweli had a bigger message to convey but simply didn't get it across. The track also contains somewhat of a hidden verse to finish the album off.
What would you rate this project?
TOP 20 RAP ALBUMS OF THIS DECADE 🌑
Number 8 - Joey Bada$$ - B4.DA.$$
Top 5 Tracks - Paper Trail$, Hazeus View, Christ Conscious, Save the Children, Like Me
A must listen for any Hip Hop fan! Joey one of them artists who keeps on delivering excellent albums and excellent tracks. 1999 is a great mixtape and AABA is superb as well. But this album is perfect! 10/10! From start to finish, it’s so good. Amazing introduction track and the album just gets better from there. Great production and his flow and lyrics are on point!
This man needs to drop his album immediately or at the very least do a fucking guest feature. I've missed hearing new shit from earl especially since he's one of my favorite artists ever. So it really does suck that I haven't heard new shit from him since like last year which were singles that hyped me up to hear this new project he's working on even more. ————————————————————————————— What're your thoughts on earl?
at 15, we have logic.
i think this a good time to remind you that this is my favorite rappers, not the best. I've been following logic for a long time now. ever since he dropped welcome to forever. his most recent release kind of disappointed me, but nevertheless I see him as one of my favorite rappers. he can have some ridiculous flows but also some really laidback ones. he's extremely versitile and very talented. logic is also a very talented storyteller like on songs like gang related where he raps from his brothers perspective the whole song. he's also pretty creative with his song topics like nikki. overall, just a great rapper and one of my favorites.
favorite project: under pressure •
favorite songs: soul food, gang related, fade away, common logic/midnight marauders, under pressure •
overall rating: 9.4/10

I'm part of the reason they still Crippin' out in Brooklyn🚨
Before I was an artist I would book 'em, mm
Push ya shit back while on them front line, n*gga, ya lunch time
who is your favorite artist that is involved in different arts besides music? -
mine is definitely gambino. the mans a great artist and actor. ofc he does many different things but any show or movie that he is involved in im never left dissatisfied.
What are your thoughts on the SoundCloud rapper wave (or supposedly raps “punk phase”)?
Personally, I’m not going to hate on it. Is it a versatile sub-genre with a ton of lyrical content? Obviously not, but I think it’s to the point, funny (definitely a meme), and fun stuff if you just want to listen to some stupid head banging shit. It’s definitely not for everyone, and good news for the haters of this wave is that it’s probably going to fade in 5 years, but I say screw it and enjoy this dumb shit while you can.
I decided to do an elimination game on overshadowed albums. I considered an overshadowed album as one that is not the artists best, but at least an 8/10 and gets ignored in favor of the better album sometimes. Last time Because the Internet by Childish Gambino was eliminated. Like for the album you think should be ELIMINATED.

So @kendricklamar is my favourite artist of this generation as some may or may not know. Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of people saying he’s overrated, tbh I don’t actually think they know the meaning of overrated. People are only calling him overrated because he gained more fans this year when he released his album DAMN. and tbh I don’t really like how his new fans act but every single day he’s gaining at least one hater because of these new fans. It’s really annoying how these new fans are acting but we should never let fans push us away from our favourite artist or a artist that we like. Also I’ll be posting my top 15 artist of all time tomorrow, I’ll be doing 3 post a day until I’m done
Who’s your number 1 or favourite artist of this generation? Doesn’t have to be rap, it can we an artist from a different genre
A totally new sound. Experimental like The Life Of Pablo. Cohesive like Yeezus. Maximalist like My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Introspective like 808s & Heartbreak. Stadium-status like Graduation. Bars like Late Registration. Conscious like College Dropout.
The abomination of Obama’s nation had his back against the wall. Isolating himself and working for what seemed to be days on end, he did what he’s always done with all the stress and pressure on him: turn the negative energy into good music.
Taking influence from his trip to Wyoming, Ye says (in the Zane Lowe interview conducted the day before the album dropped): “If I could use three words to describe this album, they would be “dark”, “hellish”, and “innovative”. There were a lot of dark times in the time that I made this album, you can see it in my music, you can see it in my fashion, you can see it in everything that I make. Everything that I have and will ever make is a reflection of my life. I want to transform all the negative energy that is inside me into dope shit.” Kanye West’s 8th album, God Is Dead, has been said by many to be his greatest album ever. Being described as “everything So Help Me God was supposed to be”. “Can U Be”
Our anti-hero is currently at the edge of the top of the world.
The braggadocio-laced banger contains Kanye spitting some of his best bars over a lo-fi filter. Mike WiLL Made-It made this during the Yeezus sessions, which lead to Kanye and Mike Dean giving the beat their own signature taste, using an ASR. Travis Scott is caught harmonizing in the background. “I caught a wave Caught more air than Super Dave Call Aaliyah, I'm super paid Jet lag, and tryna recuperate Just got off the flight from Budapest Don't need Khaled, just say "you the best!" You the type of nigga to shop at Uniqlo Just found out my father-in-law unisex
I might spend a milli on my city hoe
I might spend a milli on my video”
