Sorry I've seen the greats: RZA (production), and Nas (lyrics) do a much better job innovating the rap game. Kanye's not doing anything new or better.
WTF? On the og song and the remix when hes saying put ur diamonds in the sky hes talking about the roc sign not diamonds from the earth. Im not even a fan of his but dont slamm him on glorifying diamonds when hes not.

Kanye gets a pass because he cops people's styles. Everyone who doesn't know rap calls him "innovative" because they don't hear the shit Kanye gets his steeze from--his whole drum kit is stolen from Jay Dilla. And he dresses like a preppy, so the rich white folk love him.

I read in this Toronto magazine (Dose) that Kanye went diamond shopping for his birthday. Point is you shouldnt speak out against something then go drop a hundred g's on it.

I kinda disagree with that. It's just my humble opinion, but i don't understand why people are loving so much the Heatmakerz' beats. I hate the way they over-use toms, crashes and hi hats to give some energy to their tracks. It's way too much for my ears.

Somebody's been studying Nas.

By the way Hype Williams is still an incredible director.
LOl... ok just because he talks about diamonds from Sierra Leone.. he should not talk about sex

I guess conscious people dont have sex... lol..

Of the newest artist that have come out in the last 3 years, whose putting tight music out in the mixtapes and radio and videos?

FUck cares if he dresses like a prep, tha man got style thats what that means.

His beats are very recognisible, but they be song tight beats.

Yes RZA started it, and Kanye just follows it into the 2000's keepin that vibe alive.
his songs are very humble and meaningful like a RZA joint, im not making comparisons, but its true.

give the man respect, cause he deserves it. But he needs to leave the ROC, cause hes on a sunken ship, hope his Sophmore album sales double what College Dropout comes out.

Some of you missed my point, while some understood my point. I have not listened to the CD album, nor will I ever. All Falls Down is a great video. Jesus Walk was a powerful song, only to find out it wasn't pen by him. I don't get why his conceited attitude, and unoriginal ideas are praised so much, when he too flip flops? Wasn't Kanye just talking about white jesus pieces (LOL) he was bringing out?
