This the first Kanye project I fully listen to, I don’t know how his music been changing but his name big on the rap and music scene as a rapper and a producer. The album is 1h44 long, at first I was like there ain’t no way in hell I’d listen to it, but the rollout was amazing and it set my expectations really high, I think it’s the best rollout I’ve ever seen and we will ever witness. I highly recommend listening to it, to the whole project. The listening goes by so fast and it’s not annoying at all. The featurings are incredible and Mike’s mixing is just succulent.
As I was goin through the songs I was greatly surprised by the voices I’d recognize (or not) on the songs, the transitions between Kanye’s verses and the song’s guest(s) are really smooth, sometimes I wouldn’t even notice it wasn’t Kanye who was singing.
The 2 tracks featuring Carti are so innovative, the Sunday service Choir did an amazing job (I’d be crying every time I’d hear them) and Vory was much needed in the album.
Personally, I have "Jonah" on repeat since yesterday.
Give it 1h44 of your day, you won’t regret it even if you’re not into the rap/HipHop genre.
