Everyone says "Oh I wished he rapped more, hes just a production rapper now" but if he went back everyone would still complain. Hes at the top of hip hop at the moment, hes already proved that he can rap and now hes pushing the limits of hip hop further then anyone else in my opinion. I for one, am happy that he tries to push the boundaries with each record and doesnt settle for the TCD or LR sound and makes a different album each time. We have plenty of rappers doing the same old shit over and over, Im happy we have someone like Kanye doing it different.
PS. I loved 808 and Heartbreaks. I like it better then LR.
That's what I'm saying. The Food is example of good, rapping Kanye. TCD is my favorite album of his then LR. I like when he raps, when it's hip-hop. His shit now is more about production than anything else and I can see why people dig it, but I like his earlier work more.
I was actually hoping his next album would have the production value of MBDTF and the lyrical content of LR. That would be the best record ever made.
