Gucci Mane has always been inexplicable to me. his rhymes are lame, his rhyme scheme is wack, bordering on the stupid, and his grills make his too big teeth already look like some sort of attack on titan shit.

I’m just giving you shit because you only drop by to say shit once a month or less.

Just giving it a first listen — “4eva is a Mighty Long Time,” that is — and I’m actually feeling it. Yes I am. I came around to “Cadillactica,” which initially sounded OK, but also kind of like a hybrid rehash of 808s and Southernplayalostic. By the end of the year it was in my top ten rap albums.

This one feels more immediate. More interesting from first listen. But it’s a double album and I’m only a few tracks in. First two are dope though. Third is derivative but still good. Not sure I like “1999” but I dugthe first two tracks enough to keep listening.

Video: “IS KANYE WEST THE MOST EGOTISTICAL RAPPER”
By: TheNeedleDrop

https://youtu.be/U9fAVowpiEo

This is pretty funny. I still don’t know how I feel about this guy, Anthony Fantano, because he’s such a dick and he’s *so* part of the problem with troll culture and “shitpost” culture that he really does skirt the boundaries of alt-rightism at times.

But... this is a look at the “most egotistical” rappers, based on some kid’s stat-music-blog. It’s extremely flawed from a statistical perspective because Chance the Rapper, with only one album and one mixtape counted, ranks at no. 10, while artists like Jay and Kanye rank slightly above him. If we’re really talking about comparing these results, then Chance would be at the top. You can’t say “this guy with ONE album is at no. 10 because he only references himself 6.5 percent of the time; these other guys are at no. 7-8 because they reference themselves 7 percent of the time OVER SEVEN TO THIRTEEN ALBUMS.”

Anyone see what I’m saying? It’s called a z-score, dickhead, and it’s really easy to find. It allows you to compare results like these directly, by assigning a weighted score that takes average over instance into account.
For a stats nerd, this guy (whoever made the initial post) who loves making graphs in SPSS certainly has neglected one of the most basic and essential tools in statistics — one that is totally essential to comparative and differential statistics in general, and it’s really the only way you could ever compare data sets as diverse as these.

It would be better to just pick an album to use as a sample, or perhaps to randomly choose, like, 10 songs from each artist. That would’ve smarter than comparing such grossly different bodies of work.

But whatever... Kanye only in seventh place (though he should be even lower), and Nicki Minaj at no. 1.

Weird sample. I wonder why Eminem wasn’t included. Seems to be totally rubric-free sample selection from what I can see, though it’s certainly not “random” as smart-guy Fantano repeatedly and erroneously states.

Blah!

Sev, it's a super consistent double album with about 0 amount of filler. Every disc plays smoothly from start to finish and doesn't feel overlong or boring. The 1st disc is full of bangers. The 2nd disc is, as the cover suggests, more enlightened and introspective, without being preachy. "Mixed Messages" is one of my favorite songs this year, as well as the song J. Cole strives to make. I think it's KRIT's best effort in years and on par with DAMN, 4:44 and Big Fish Theory.

“On par with DAMN.?”

Who are you and what have you done with louder?

Yeah, it’s a fine album, but more on a par with, say, Tetsuo & Youth. Good, fine, occasionally really good, but that’s it.

DAMN. is a fucking masterpiece.
4:44 is the strongest and most concise pure rap album in years (“pure” rap excludes albums like Good Kid, TPAB, Yeezus and Pablo of course, because those albums are transcendent). 4:44 is a better pure rap record than “We Got it from here... Thank You 4 your Service.”

And DAMN. is just... well, the name really says it all.

Maybe this KRIT is on par with Big Fish Theory, but not 4:44 and most certainly not DAMN.

Dude.

Easy! “Madvillainy.” If you like that, dig backwards. His best album is “MM.. Food?” in my opinion, but it’s more underground and weirdo than the super-palatable “Madvillainy.”

All of his albums are pretty good, with “Danger Doom” probably being the least inspired. Don’t forget the Viktor Vaughn albums also... “Vaudeville Villain” and “Venemous Villain.” Both are MF Doom albums, and unlike many of his albums, these are largely produced by Doom (so is “MM.. Food?” and “Operation Doomsday”), while “Madvillainy” and “Danger Doom” are collaborations, with Madlib and Danger Mouse handling beats and production, respectively.

“Key to the Kuffs” and “Born Like This” are both good too, but not something you need to start out with.

Lol, perspective dude. I don't think it's better than any of the aforementioned albums actually, but it's comfortably sitting at #4 right now with nothing coming close.

Well, good music is good music. After being exposed to the Lil Pumps and 21 Savages of the world, I bet you'd find yourself lumping them all together too.

I didn't really care for Run the Jewels 3. 1 and 2 were enjoyable but I'm pretty much over them.

Admittedly I enjoy Kodak Black more than I'd like.. I know he's a problematic person, but "Project Baby 2" is stacked with so many good songs.

No, I know what’s shit. I’ve alwayd liked Big KRIT, but he’s not to be lumped together with Kendrick. I thought you’d be the ONE person who’d agree with me on that.

There are tiers in modern hip hop. There’s the top tier, which almost isn’t hip-hop anymore because it’s too good to be limited to one genre (Kendrick, Kanye, Tribe, very few others, honestly), then there’s the rest. The best of the rest is where folks like Jay find themselves when they drop an absolute classic. Or Pusha, Who you know I love. Or Chance, when he’s on point. Danny Brown. Vince. Maybe KRIT will fit into this category, but not yet. And I do like him, honestly, but this album is good at best.

I’ve gone back and forth, but ultimately, yeah, pretty boring. All the songs sound the same, have the same sonic palette. That’s not a winning formula.

I still enjoy some of their stuff, but they’re not saviors of anything. Not even killer mike’s best work. CERTAINLY not el-p’s.

Bro, Kendrick is the best rapper in our day and age, one of the greatest hip hop acts of all time, AND one of the best artists in this decade all genres included, PERIOD.

KRIT is dope and I think he's one of the best in hip hop RIGHT NOW. Definitely underrated and deserves to have a huge following. I feel the same way about Danny, Vince and Gibbs.

Tribe's album shat on everyone but it was more like a one time affair. They aren't a continuous force in hip hop (sadly).

Kendrick's already sold out to the illuminati. his agenda is no longer his own, it is being shaped and pushed by the powers-that-be
