can we all agree that this is the worst part of the entire album?
it would be if Jay-Z hadn't blessed us with that horrid Monster verse.
in my saltier moments i've argued that Nicki's the only guest who pulled her weight on MBDTF, but i'd rather not die on that hill today.
>"one man in the air if you don't really care" part
>"ain't no question if I want it I need it" part
Are the worst parts of the album.
What about Yeezus?
My vote goes to "If you love me so much then why'd you let me go". Also that Jamaican dude and "I heard you need a new fad, a new fad" ruin good songs for me.
RZA is the only reason i've listened to So Appalled more than once.
i don't like Ross on DIAND for the same reason i don't like Push on Runaway.
neither of them have the self-awareness and melancholy that make Kanye's verses worth reading into on those songs.
it's just flossing, which is fun, but i can't help but wish they'd gone deeper.
Frankly the Pusha T somewhat ruins Runaway for me to the point where I skip over that verse
Runaway is definitely my favourite song on the album, but his verse is just out of place
It takes away from the sadness and guilt that I want to hear
maybe so, but it's also more energy and charisma spot than anybody else shows on that song.
full disclosure, though: i could listen to RZA mumble about more or less anything for at least five minutes straight.
which is why he also had the best track on the James Blake record, but that's getting away from the point.
I can't speak for Ross, but Pusha was very self-aware when he wrote his verse, trying again and again to be as big of a douche as possible. He sets himself up as the perfect example of what the song is about, the young, rich and tasteless black rapper. His verse presents the rawest form of the money, sex and power topics in rap. Personally I love the verse because there is absolutely nothing glamorous about it, it's dark and depressing despite T rapping about being on top of the game. It's my second favorite section of Runaway
it does help a little knowing Pusha went out of his way to be as miserable as possible on that verse, but that doesn't make it any less, well, miserable for me to listen to.
it just feels more hateful than insightful, but that's my taste, i guess.
It's not worse than these.
>EEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYY YO CHAMPAIGNE DISHES AND DIRTY WHITE BITCHES!!!!!!
Sounds so mad and out of place.
>Put the pussy in a sarcophagus
>She find pictures in my eeeeeeee-mail, I sent this bitch a picture of my dick
This is an awful line, yet everyone is praising it because it was done by Kanye. If it was something from Benji, everybody would call it shit.
>The older head, boulderhead, would train a soldier head
Makes no sense at all, especially in the context of the song. Plus he's rhyming head with head like 5 times, so it's not impressive in any way. It's the level of lyricism you'd expect from Chief Keef, but not Raekwon.
>I'm so appalled, spalding bald, balding Donald Trump taking dollars from y'all
Literally what the fuck?
>Too many Urkels on yo team that's why yo wins low
>That'll be the same day MTV play video, that was a lil joke voila
1. The line doesn't make much sense.
2. It wasn't funny at all. And it's like he's looking for a validation or something by saying "that was a lil joke".
>Fuck with the lights on, fu- fu- fuck with the lights on.
I removed this from my copy, because it was completely unnecessary and added nothing to the song.
>Colin Powells, Austin Powers
BRAVO KANYE, NO WORDS FOR THIS ONE.
If you didn't know it was Kanye, you'd swear some of these lyrics were written by a 6 year old.
Also, MBDTF is in my top 10 albums of all time, but these are the parts that annoy me.
Pusha rewrote the verse 4 times just to get that point across, so it's not too far-fetched to believe that Kanye had a strong purpose for him. I love the the idea of him suddenly being shot into stardom and having more money and influence than he knows what to do with, so he spirals into a soulless, hedonistic lifestyle and that verse represents it perfectly. Kanye's verse is the self-aware part of him, admitting his faults.
Ross' verse feels a bit out-of-place in Devil, though. I just like it because of the delivery.
Cyhi is one of the corniest rappers.
Pusha is the best rapper on the album.
head doesn't rhyme with head. the rhyme is clearly older/boulder/soldier. I'm not sure that's even the line cause Rae's delivery isn't clear at times.
it's spalding ball but yeah dumb line.
the pictures in my e-mail line is in reference to kanye's dick pic that was floating around the net at the time.
I'm convinced that Pusha T wrote that verse. Just read it in his voice, it sounds like something he'd write, plus Rick Ross is not on that level as a lyricist.
Pusha T wrote the majority of MBDTF, I'm sure of it.
Almost feels like Pusha wrote that verse. Not that Ross can't write a good verse.
He wasn't even supposed to be on the track. He put his verse on there without Kanye knowing and he ended up keeping it.
They really don't though. Not even on a Ghostface/Action Bronson level where it's only the tone of their voice.
>Jay-Z, using one of the least flattering vocal tones in his career, pronounced "love" as "LAAAHF" and still managed to cut deeply, flashing a vein of real bitterness towards estranged former colleagues who he had "made millionaires."
While that's a good answer what in the song itself supports that? I guess you would have to know the context of why/how the album was created which allow that to make sense but I don't think "Runaway" really mentions that although I could be wrong.
Please go shitpost on another board like /tv/
Runaway isn't explicitly about anything. I mean, if you take it literally, it's about a relationship. But really, it's more generally about Kanye's awareness of his asshole-ishness and his reputation in the media.
You could also simply interpret that, as in 808s, he is using autotune to convey a more emotional tone: but the "dark twisted" version of it here is beyond redemption. 808s felt like a phase: the depression conveyed in Runaway seems abyssal.
Okay yeah that makes sense. Thanks for the explanation cause anytime I'm asked why he does that by friends I can only respond with "I dunno it just sounds cool I guess" or some variation of that.
I mean MBDTF is pretty good but it's not THAT good. Everyone who rides this album's dick makes me cringe like a huge portion of Kanye's lyrics. The man is not a mastermind, he's a pretty good rapper.
The more I listen to Wolves the more I really like it.
The lyrics are really simple (not a bad thing because simple lyrics get a point across) which goes along with the simple beat and I think Vic/Sia were really good on it too
I'm excited to hear how the album sounds but I hope there's more from Ye and Paul like an EP or something because it doesn't seem like the type of stuff they're working on will fit within the album
wow this album has so many terrible moments, despite being so good all around.
>so much head I woke up in sleepy hollow
>they can kiss my whole ass, more specifically they can kiss my asshole
>have you ever had sex with a pharoah? i put her pussy in a sarcophagus
>i sent this picture of my diiiick
>if we died in each others arms, still get laid in the afterlife
what a poet.
>everything in so appalled besides the beat
>all those fucking rhymes of the same word
>those overly transparent lyrics
>that Iron Man sample
either way the album is like an 8 or a nine for its production
Man its like you're me, its one of the most impressive albums production wise but is scattered with some of the most unintelligent, borderline releaseable garbage. do none of these lyrics get any second consideration besides "i thought of it so it must be good. im going to sell it now"
RZA is kind of retarded even without the retard juice
Sometimes it's hard to believe this man made 36 chambers
Or maybe he's just an elaborate troll
