How Can You Not Respect Kanye West

I thought Kanye's first album was ok and thats really on the fact that half the album is skits now if he didn't use so many that album deserves what it got. This album is pure genius I'm talken perfect straight play no next song skips. You can hate Kanye West but the truth is you need to love him because this album is bringing back the true beauty of hip-hop I mean this album is nothing short of hard work. The first point noticed about this album is the production the beats are so different and Kanye produced every track except for touch the sky which was done by just blaze. The beats are carefully done with usage of all instruments so nothing sounds the same every one has samples from old school legendary songs I thought no rapper would ever use.The concept of kanyes album sticks through out the entire album he states facts that cant be ignored and raps about the past pains of our african ancestors so we can remember how we got here plus the struggle of the broke man. Now if your wondering about the lyrics I have to say I'm very surprised and impressed the concepts he uses are very hard to rap about but he pulls it off and he knows what rappers to put in like NaS and Common and make this album sick. Something I would like to see is NaS hook up with Knaye on the next album because his beats just brought some extra somethin from NaS. Basically This album should get all kinds of awards because this man is trying to build something new in this game that has become tasteless, finally someone with a big voice comes at the government and real issues in life I mean NaS, Common, Jadakiss, and styles speak but more of the trouble makers pay attention to Mr. West.

Kanye West proves one thing if nothing else: Not all rap is created equal. Like many other achievements in popular music, West takes elements from soul, jazz, and pop, to mix with his bright, witty lyrics. Fun but also formidable, Kanye takes on the trappings of American material culture and understandably finds much to mock. With different meters and measures, Kanye West makes all other efforts seem stale. Giving snatches of wit, his rapping inspires some real laughs. While inserting the soundtrack …

About this album

Wiki

For haters eager to see Kanye hit a sophomore slump--no such luck.Late Registrationcan't replicate the novelty of last year'sCollege Dropout, but otherwise, this is an impressively more mature and labored-over album. Lyrically, Kanye's only improved a notch but musically, the album sounds incredible, especially with co-producer Jon Brion helping polish the songs to perfection. Tracks like "Heard 'Em Say" (featuring Maroon 5's Adam Levine) and "Hey Mama," are richly textured in their soulfulness while the flint-edge of "Crack Music" and "Gone" (feat. Cam'ron) will appeal to the street-oriented. There's a few duds on here--the sickly-sweet, syrupy "Bring Me Down" (feat. Brandy) being one of the worst offenders--but when the album's good, it's very, very good. In short, Kanye's detractors may not be swayed in their resistance to his charms but not only will his past supporters be rewarded butLate Registrationhas enough appeal to earn new crowds of fans. --Oliver Wang
