personally i could never listen to this mega douches output - Id just as soon listen to a donald trump country album. i will examine the reception to gauge the state of popular culture.
i've been listening to
this album a bit. there's some great playing and samples. i think I like
most of the songs on this tbh.
a lot of good collabos. i wouldn’t have expected havoc to be on
this. kareem riggins on 30 hours. ty dolla $ign tracks. andre on 30 hours.
lots of nice moments.
stuff like when the beat drops on freestyle 4. or when frank ocean comes in at
the end of wolves.
At times it feels as if 'Ye himself is simply one of the bigger names amongst a cast of thousands rather than the Star of the Show. Certainly it seems he's moving more towards the more traditional producer role, a la Dre or even Quincy Jones, roping in whoever he thinks is most capable of Actualizing His Vision. It's making for some pretty extraordinary records, I know that much.
Is it ironic to anyone else that Ty Dolla Sign from South Africa?
