Game On a Nation: Hip Hop Intellectual


My assessment of Kanye's latest album has not been fair. In my personal life I prejudged Kanye's 808 and Heartbreak album without really paying attention to the songs. I pre-judged it because of the auto-tunes, but I have to admit I like "Welcome to Heartbreak" and "Amazin". After reading some of the reviews and after listening more closely, this album is a "reflective" album. Kanye is delving into his emotional space after losing his mother and breaking up with his fiancée. All that said, I only purchased "Amazin." I still want the old, let me show you that I can rap, Kanye Back. That is, I want the Kanye that appears in the video below. Kanye kills it, Common kills it, and yes, Kid Cudi kills it as well. It’s hard not to prejudge some of these hip hop cats sometimes, but this is how we learn and grow in Hip Hop.
