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.
