    I agree. It was also very insightful that you pointed out that I'm a pure hip-hop listener. Your right I got use to a more hip-hop flavored Kanye.Though I prefer hip-hop over any other genre of music doesn't mean that I don't like other genres. I'm not saying your assuming that either so don't take that in the wrong way.My main argument is that though this was an album that mixed different genres, It was also half ass for such a talented and creative rapper and producer.Kanye can do better and has done better and I'm a very disappointed fan who was expecting to hear a different Kanye or remnants of a younger/earlier Kanye.He's trying to do different things and I can respect that because some guy already stated that's what artist do but in this situation I don't believe different is better and I would vmuch rather hear Kanye be as lyrical as he was on songs like "Last Call" or "drive slow" or even "stronger" just to know he still cares about his lyrics.I believe what people are noticing the most are his beats and his chorus's only because his verses aren't memorable anymore what quote has Kanye recently said that's as memorable as "mayonnaise colored benz I push miracle whips". All I'm saying is on this new album he was trying to prove himself as more a DJ and completely played himself out as a rapper.Peace.

    Dog first of all you don't have a valid argument because you basically contradicted your whole comment with one bad sentence.And how in the hell is he pushing the boundaries you just admitted to him falling off lyrically I don't call that evolving my friend, and that shows that you obviously don't know the meaning of that word.Dog you couldn't even name some of his recent songs that can compare to any of those songs you named and your dumbass doesn't even realize your agreeing with me in your own subliminal way. No I don't believe Kanye should stay the same I would love to see him progress and I believe he still has the talent and capacity to make amazing music and no I don't believe all of his newer songs are bad like chain heavy I love that song but in no way is it or will it be as memorable as through the wire and 5 years from now that song will basically strike no nostalgia for me. I believe were both fans of kanye west but I think, no I know I noticed that kanye is falling off but your on his dick so hard it's effecting your thought process and opinion on what G.O.O.D music actually is buddy. Your contradiction came when you brought up his earlier songs and it shows that your knowledgeable of a better Kanye but yet all you can name that has gotten better is his beats which I want to make very clear to you that I don't give a fuck about his dumb ass beats. A beat is a beat and is nothing more than a rhythm it's main purpose is to assist the performer or the artist and a beat isn't shit because if it was then everyone would listen the instrumental version of this garbage track. A beat isn't shit without a rappers input my friend and when a rapper constantly is inputting wack ass verses a true listener (like me) is going to say something and a true dick rider (like you) is going to come to the defense of an idol who doesn't even know your bitch ass exist and honestly dog does his single "runaway" compare to his other mainstream singles like "good life" or "gold digger" or can't tell me nothing ask yourself... is Kanye really doing his best or is he just putting out rushed songs that dickriders (like you) will bang and enjoy but soon tire of? I agree I'm an ignorant person but it's because I know and can admit to this trait which every living species on this planet shares makes me a little less ignorant than a dickrider (like you) who is so blinded with his own stupidity that he can't realize that his beloved idol is making trash music. I respect that Kanye is putting a lot of artist on but at the same time he's compromising his own reputation because he is constantly getting murdered and getting less air time on his own songs no offense when I type in a Kanye song I want to listen to Kanye and sometimes just kanye not a thousand other artist. I respect your opinion but in my perspective Kanye is now average better than the rest but at the same time he's not doing the best he could and as you know deep down inside where his dick is not touching you know it's true dog so just shut the hell up and admit it your only lying to yourself. Peace bra. Till the next time.

    Dog tell me how in the hell can you have more substance when he hardly says anything at all. Kanye's older albums only had a few guest appearances. I'm not lying nor being ignorant. How has he gotten better? Listen to the college dropout and listen to MBDTF. With the College Dropout you hear smooth entertaining beats filled with Kanye's signature style and you also get some of his truly best lyricism and guest features that don't have better and more verses than kanye and everything has it's place. But when you listen to his new bullshit all you get is over the top beats with too much put into them and half ass verses from kanye that basically get murdered by weak ass artist. I'm not saying kanye isn't doing his thing cause I personally favor him out of all of the artist out today but I'm just saying he could and has done better. But listen to the albums and you'll find that his newest one is heavily pop influenced while his older one like the College Dropout or Late Registration are more raw and just better overall.

    I think all of the people who likes this song are wack. Dog as a longtime fan of Kanye, since the college dropout in my opinion his lyricism has not improved but only died down and I know it's only natural that every artist is only in their prime once but Kanye can do and has done better than this bullshit and his newest album was good for todays standards but compared to his early works that shit was horrible I admire Kanye's effort and creativity but I don't admire the dumb ass dick riders like the fans of this song. I think someone has to agree with me I mean almost emphasis on the almost all of these good friday songs Kanye has been murdered verse wise. Someone has to agree with me I mean use a little common sense on this one dog.

    Kanye continues to be one of the few cats expanding the boundaries of hiphop on a populist level. beyond bitches, hoes, guns and clubs lyric 'ish". Sometimes it's hit and miss but he continues to take chances. Good Look, for real..would have liked a cat like Talib on this , just for a different take on christnmas in Harlem. Christmas in Brooklyn has a better sound to it..lol..BROOKLYN!

    why u callin everybody dog? i'm a man! and ur hatin on people that are "ridin" kanye, so to speak. but ur just "ridin" old kanye the same way. people grow up yo, kanyes not the same person and he's not in the same circumstances he once was in...just cause u think his old stuff is better dont mean his new stuff isnt good!

    the reason he is expanding is because he is not only hip hop any more, college drop out is better in your eyes because it is a pure hip hop album, so you probably only listen to hip hop, and that is not a bad thing, MBDTF is an example of how he is trying new things, he tries to fuse classical, rock, alternative and hip hop/rap together. Its not a pure hip hop album, which is why i wouldn't call it the best hip hop album of the year, but it can appeal to other genres, so that is why i consider it one of the, if not the best album out this year

    his beats on here have gotten wayy better... they're by far more intriquite and sonically advanceed than naything else he has ever donee.. and his lyrics rso personal now. His music is filled iwth double entendres and metaphors.. usings similies is the easiest way to rap so he rapped with mostlyy metaphors. But everything he says has multiple meanings. He's much more political now. Before he wanted to prove he belonged so he just dropeed hard lines, now that he's sealed his spot as 1 of the greatest, he raps more personal, social, and political.

    xyz123
    xyz123

    wtf r u talking about??? he only keeps getting better..listen to the album again maan.. The shiit he says has double or triple meanings. and as a producer he's gotten 20x better.. ur prblyy 1 of them dudes who only listens for metaphors. His new verses r filled with substance and meaning. not just "hot lines". and this one was for christmas. they just havin fun w/ the art, dnt b ignorant

    I'd rather write a book than a idiotic comment.I'm sorry our opinions differ but no matter what you say I still think older Kanye is better than newer Kanye.That's all I'm saying dog no need to go bananas I'm just messing around pissing you off baiting you into a senseless and pointless debate. Last thing I'm gonna say is your going to get aids or internal rashes from riding Kanye's dick so hard bro.I'm not really mad dog just a little frustrated that you can't understand something so simple.Music nowadays would have never lasted with a more intelligent audience who can resist falling for the okey doke last thing.Peace.

    Bigdickbandit

    I tried to reply but it wouldn't let me so instead I just left a regular comment down here. I agree with some of what your saying. I just don't really think he's doing anything new. I believe this because all he is doing is experimenting with different sounding beats and consistently collaborating with a lot of artist on his new songs. Point blank I don't think your seeing my point of view 808's was different and I liked that album that proves that I don't hate his different projects because that album is his most different album to date. The only thing so different about his newest album is his beats, the amount of his collaborations, and the amount of solid bars he spits as a individual artist. Kanye is not really doing anything new he's just doing stuff he didn't have to do on his earlier songs. I seriously don't see what's so new about his album other than his beats and collaborations which makes it seem as if he is only using them as either to make better "art" or he's too lazy to do a lot of the songs by himself or he knows he can attract some of his fellow collaborator's fan base by using them on all of his songs. So basically my true point and argument is that I believe hes becoming less of a rapper and more of a DJ and the proof is in the music just listen.Like I said I don't listen to Kanye so I can listen to a thousand other artist and I sure as hell don't listen to him for his pop sounding beats maybe your right and I just don't like the direction in which he is heading in because he is only jeopardizing his own artistic reputation by over utilizing other artist musical abilities it almost makes you forget about his own.Peace.

    I think his beats are way too flashy and pop influenced. I also really don't give a fuck about the beats I listened to Kanye because of his lyrics and the emotion and effort I sensed he put into them. I don't agree with a lot of your comment. His current raps are personal but overall they don't compare to the raps that Kanye wrote before he found super stardom and a substantial amount of success. Not to mention his songs are becoming annoyingly random. Before kanye had a concurring theme which was about his educational stuff and I loved that then he moved on to gay themes like love and shit and now I'm on this website preaching to people who probably don't give a fuck and are only letting their mentality soften by listening to this non thought provoking mainstream bullshit. All I want to do is make you realize that America is quickly falling victim to diseases by the name of ignorance and stupidity and my proof is the existence of your dumbass comment. Kanye has always been a personal rapper but a younger kanye could better express himself because he was better lyrically but now I see him as someone trying to fit in but he does it better than every other artist so it makes him stand out. Dog all I'm saying is to do the research for yourself and read some of his older lyrics from his earlier works and compare them unless your so brainwashed you don't know a what a good rap sounds like. Let me also state that my opinion is not at all bias and it is an opinion I've listened to Kanye since his earliest and latest album and I have noticed a large change in his production style and musical substance and I can honestly say he is not changing for the better. I've been a kanye fan (not a dickrider just a fan) even when he was bitching about rewards he should've won and still stuck with kanye because I don't let an artist personal life overshadow their musical accomplishments so I have no reason other than educational purposes to rant on about kanye because in the end of all of this I am making a statement that pop cultures ignorance is not allowing actual good artist like kanye be good artist because they don't demand more and instead settle for half ass songs like Christmas in Harlem.Peace.Reply if you got balls.

    I guess kanye can just never get it right, back in his college dropout days everyone complained about all the samples he used and now those same ppl are complaining his music is not the same. True artist make songs that reflect their feelings and Kanye has showed that more then anyone by altering his style to fit how he feels.

    Come on now that was uncalled for. Your wrong I am American though your also not as smart as you think,Your also really random when did I type anything about "hard ish"?Sorry if offended you by using the word gay but from where I'm from it's pretty much just slang for softer people or more fimine things in general.I was only trying to state that his subjects changed into softer love themed songs I never said anything about being "hard" then again from my point of view Kanye has never in my eyes been a "hard" rapper and that was sort of the appeal it made him stand out to me.Maybe I approached the wrong track but it isn't simply about this dumbass song I only used this track to reference Kanye's overall new direction.Point blank I really do care for what you have to say.Kanye is creating different music than what he was previously doing and I think everyone will agree with me on that but I'm just a bigger fan of a different Kanye we all have opinions that differ I like the earlier Kanye right or wrong you seem to be more fond of his newer style there's nothing wrong with that but from my point of view Kanye did not improve and that will remain my point of view until someone with some sense can change it or at least have a minor influence on it.I got respect for Isaiah because he actually said something that was not agreeing with my opinion but he said it in a respectable manner.I apologize to anyone I offended when I started this debate or argument or whatever you want to call it I was simply just trying to spark everyone's interest but I did it in a immature and non respectable manner.Peace.

    @ Bigdickbandit..I lol'ed at "gay shit like Love etc". Probably as moronic a diatribe as I've had to read here. Let me guess..you're not American but you buy into all that tough guy BS you hear on record .Listen kid, Every record doesn't have to be about hard "ish".The lyrical flow was concurrent with the time of season,son. Come close.young 'un, lemme holla at you real quick...ITS A CHRISTMAS SONG, DUMBASS!!! LIGHTEN THE FUCK UP! The real problem with hiphop...it's so called fans.

    Bigdickbandit, how you jump down and leave a statement like it's a reply, lmao. point blank period both of yall have your opinions, I happen to agree with xyz123, if Kanye doesn't always seem like he is falling in the direction that you expect him too it is because he is not, Kanye is an artists and in art you constantly keep trying new things to become more well rounded. That is the reason why he made a left turn and did an album like 808s, it's also why he likes to collaborate with other musicians and artists, all of their art is different and by bringing them into his art it automatically makes his art different.

    1st off i dont need to "do research" cuz i own all of his albums and been listeniin to Kanye since his graduate mixtape buddy.. and no ur one of the people who thinks he needs to stay the same.. his music is going to evolve as he does. he isnt in the same place in his life so how is he going to make the same music. and how is he getting worse if he is pushing the boundaries sonically and creating genre bending beats that any hiphophead can love, yet allowing for main stream listeners to like it. And he's always rapped about things dear to him.."hey Mama", "Roses", "family business", etc. snd he wrote political shit. ex. crack music. and now he's doing the same with a different sound. And people who are ignorant and think they know hiphop like u who just hate on the evolution of the game try and say he fell off. Christmas in Harlem is just a track he had fun with to get Dipset back on and for the holidays. But as far as MBDTF its an amazing album. His rhyme scheme has become a little simpler. I'll give you that.But his substance and the quality of his rhymes he's spittin have not gotten any less than better my friend. But a true artist always expands. never stays the same. People like you just have yet to catch up to where he's at. And his beats r not flashy just intricate and dnt even bring up his shit about award shows. He's right about it 90% of the time. just needs to choose his moments better. So instead of listenin to douche bags like you he's going to continue make G.O.O.D. Music.. all the way back from the "This cant be life" beat, to now. Kanye is the best. Get off his dick. and i aint gonna sayy "reply if u got balls" cuz ur on the internet. that cyber shit talkin dnt make u sound tough boii.

    True, but personally I always liked Kanye no matter what songs he was making but nowadays his music just seems a little boring without good lyrical substances and more solo songs.
