    Armenian_Jedi Yeah I know. It's an amazing tape. Didn't have high hopes after his #10day tape but this blew me away. Now I'm just wondering when and who will sign him.

    Yeah, I've been seein a lot of hype everywhere around him. He's prolly in a position where he can even pick and choose from a few labels to be honest.

    Yeah, he's in the same position as Travis Scott was in like a year ago, ended up getting signed by Kanye and T.I. - My prediction is that Chance gets signed by either T.D.E., or Visionary.

    I have never really gotten that much into R.A. I know he's a dope MC and I have heard a few great songs with from and a lot of great things. What would you reccomend me checking out first?

    Seems like the media outlets love it but it's more of a mixed reaction with hip hop fans.

    IMO Yeezus is waaaaay far off from being his best album. You can't get better than College Dropout and Late Registration. Yeezus was all right, much better than 808 but my favorite song on the album has to be Blood on the Leaves.

    Anyone excited for Jay's new album??

    see i think both of those records are great, but mbdtf topped both of them and yeezus goes one step further. he's playing with sound and growing as an artist in a way no other mainstream rapper would ever dare. the production on the record is so weird. you can go from song to song to song in the middle of the record without ever hearing a snare drum and yet it totally works. imo it's a game changer and i won't be at all surprised to see it inspire a whole new acid house/hip hop hybrid sub-genre.

    Ya I agree, it could start a whole new genre if it really catches on. I'm a HUGE Kanye fan, saw him twice in concert and they were the best performances I have ever seen. I really don't dig this album as much BUT I bought the 2 songs I like and listened to the rest once. This is an album I will have to listen to a few times to really appreciate it and that's exactly what I will do.

    seriously that's the ****, tom. I loved the white album and now this. only complaint is more of a request: turn up the low end!

    thanks man! i'll see what we can do about the low end. obviously a lot depends on your speaker setup. we mixed it on a few different systems in addition to a nice pair of headphones but it's still always possible that we didn't get it quite right.

    also the white album disc 2 should be done really soon. possibly next week.

    Has anyone bought this yet? Probably the best new song to drop since Will Smith returned from the Wild Wild West.
