Meh… It is about what I expected and my expectations were extremely low. I am just not a fan of Kanye West at all anymore. Everyone applauds his last LP to be some creative masterpiece and I just didn't hear it at all, I thought it was very weak. As I posted on the LP review thread I'll state here as well: I do not like this new marketing ploy of advertising artists to be featured on songs when all that is used is a sample! New God Flow was the only song I was really looking forward to, mainly due to Ghostface, and to hear just a two bar sample for the hook I was instantly bummed. It's just like how they marketed the DMX song Time To Get Paid as a song actually featuring Biggie. They lead you to believe there is going to be averse by said artists, what a let down. I am also not a fan of Cypha The Prince, Big Sean and especially have hate in my heart for 2 Chainz so with that bias how could I take this LP seriously? Kanye needs to get back to the sound that made him so popular in the first place. I know the argument will come that artists need to grow and change but I say look at DJ Premier or Pete Rock, you know it's one of their songs after the two drum hits and I never get tired of their sound cause it's so choice. Anyways I say don't waste your precious free time listening to this LP, there is a ton of other new LPs much more worthy of your listening attention. Get Purpose and Confidence's LP The Purpose Of Confidence, that is a real Hip Hop LP in my world not this Hip Pop corny nonsense Kanye is involved with.

It starts out really good but falls apart during the second half.
