I'm not sure if the Denzel Curry album from this year is really meh or I'm just losing interest in that type of hip hop..

Finally getting to it.

I've gotta say... Unfortunately....

This is the first album to firmly grab me by the fucking balls and give me a shock to the heart and soul since THE LIFE OF PABLO.

This is AWESOME.

Fucking 'Ye and Chance are the Batman and Robin of hip hop.

I like this better than untitled unmastered.

"No Problem" is the best track Lil WYne OR 2 Chainz have appeared on in for Fucking ever.

This is some exuberant, joyous, heavenly ass shit, and it's EXACTLY what I needed. This, like TLOP, is fucking heroin for the soul.

2nd best album of the year. Sorry Bey.

I'm glad you're enjoying it so much! I do like it better than untitled unmastered as well.

Yeah man.. it's bland and uninteresting. In my opinion, at least.

Who said you were a hater?

Of anything other than TLOP, that is ;)

It's the goddamn definition of off the goddamn chain!!!

My gut reaction is to say it's better even than Acid Rap, which I believe is among the best albums (I'm not calling it a mixtape, not when it's THAT good) of the decade.

The first 4 songs are just fucking non-stop brilliance. It's like he's actually beating me over the head with awesomeness. In this, it reminds me a great deal of TLOP, which I think was an obvious source of inspiration for this. But it also has some of the most exuberant and ecstatic beats and production that have appeared on a major project since Gradu-fucking-ation.

(Really, tell me "No Problem" doesn't remind you of "The Glory" ... or at least bring it to mind..)

Not saying it's an imitation. I'm saying it's fucking BEAUTIFUL.

Part of me wishes Chance would "sell out" and get a record deal, because he's the only rapper I've ever encountered who I truly believe could be another Kanye. But he's on his own path, and he's certainly a shot-caller.

This record makes me bounce back and forth between elation and tearfulness the same way Pablo does. It's SO MUCJ better than I ever expected, and I was expecting pretty awesome shit, so that's saying a lot.

And the record covers so much ground, sonically and stylistically. It's got gospel, it's got a little trap, it's oozing soul and there are streaks of jazz and EDM and neo-soul and rock and pop and .... Blah!

This is what I think is missing in so much of today's hip hop. Positivity, fun, chaos, goofiness, variety. This is what I want to hear.

It's like Chance made the anti-VIEWS. A colorful, vibrant album about his home town, but instead of floating around inside his own brain (like Drake does in his asshole), it's like Chance is casting flood lights outward, onto the people of the city and beyond, out to rest of the world and into space and into heaven.

It's just incredible. I can't say enough about it, really.

Great post and comparsion, Sev!

Chance AMA on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/hiphopheads...is_out_ask_me/

He said that the tape will be available for free everywhere in less than two weeks! Go Chance!!

louder 05.15.2016 04:17 AM

I raised an eyebrow when I saw Lil Yachty and Justin Bieber in the tracklist, but they surprisingly killed their features. With all the shit we gave Lil Yachty in the last page, I must give him props where it's due.

louder 05.15.2016 04:18 AM

And don't even get me started on that Jay Electronica verse.. one of the absolute BEST rappers in the world.

louder 05.15.2016 05:19 AM

Coloring Book is one of the most uplifting albums I've EVER heard in my entire life, up there with Exile from Main St., Songs in the Key of Life, Discovery and Graduation.. saving people from suicide type of shit. Y'know?

Whenever that Kirk Franklin song is on, I just have a BIG smile on my face.

louder 05.15.2016 05:45 AM

"Kanye's best prodigy, he ain't sign me but he proud of me"

No doubt.

louder 05.16.2016 02:34 PM

Common announced a new album!

Severian 05.16.2016 05:25 PM

That track sounds like a freestyle. At least the verse.

I just love Chanc's cadence and vocal spi. I love it when his voice cracks and it sounds like he's laughing, crying, and maybe even getting ready to scream in someone's face, all at once.

In this era of largely bullshit trend hopping scuzz rapper, Chance really stands out. He's someone I can't help but root for. And this is the best goddamn "mixtape" that's dropped in I don't know how long. I can't think of anything that surpasses it.

Highest score this year, along with the new Radiohead (which I think they overrated a bit). Well deserved.
