Kanye murders Jay on this record, but it's the best offering from Jay since American Gangster.

it's all about the production/beats with this album. as of late, it's the only thing I really look forward to when hearing about a Kanye production. His lyrics have gotten weaker over time, but his shit always bumps

Excellent, excellent review. I feel like your hip-hop reviews help me strength my opinions of the records in question - not in the way that I lean toward or away from your opinion, just because you know more about the genre so reading about it helps me learn more intricacies that I didn't notice before. I definitely don't listen to this genre like I do others.

I love you, ian, but jay is far from weak. He smacks kanye around on about 4 tracks. New day, illest mfer, welcome to the jungle, and why I love you all rule. Couldn't disagree more with ya there. Kanye def got jay a few times, but he's younger and has a lot more to rap about than a guy who's at the top of the forbes list and has 11 number one albums. Ya dig?

But as always, great review, you're sexy, etc.

Frank Ocean almost single-handedly makes two songs. Your track listing is also wrong (and had me confused).

It's

1. No Church in the Wild (feat. Frank Ocean)
2. Lift Off (feat. Beyoncé)
3. ****** in Paris
4. Otis (feat. Otis Redding)
5. Gotta Have It
6. New Day
7. That's My Bitch
8. Welcome to the Jungle
9. Who Gon Stop Me
10. Murder to Excellence
11. Made in America (feat. Frank Ocean)
12. Why I Love You (feat. Mr Hudson)

Bonus Tracks:

13. Illest Motherfucker Alive
14. H*A*M
15. Primetime
16. The Joy (feat. Curtis Mayfield)

Very god review, I was looking forward to this for quite some time and ultimately it's very hard for an album to reach it's potential when it has so much hype behind it. My favorite track would definitely have to be New Day.

"Gotta Have It" is criminally short.

Only thing I disagree with you about is Frank Ocean, cause he was great on the first song. Second song he should have been cut out or down though. And if we're talking about weak Jay verses just look at Lift Off, though that is a weak song in general.
