Kanye's music had definitely gone downfall recently, but he hasn't always been this terrible! These songs show why he had skill.
- •College Dropout: We don't CareThe first official album by Kanye, The College Dropout was very different from the material popular rappers were releasing preceding this album. We don't Care started off the album with a smooth slow flow from Kanye, combined with his own up lifting beat. Right off the bat, it was clear he want going for gangster rap.
- •College Dropout: Two WordsTwo Words was faster paced than many of the previous songs on the album, and stylistically is amazing! Like many early Kanye tracks, the production is breathtaking. The chorus is very similar to Talib's choruses, and is an all around solid track.
- •College Dropout: Family BusinessTowards the end of the album, Kanye's soft side is brought out in this heartwarming track. It gives a little insight to his childhood, and what his family is like. Lyrically very good, but Kanye also takes an attack on materialism.
When I listen to music, I can reflect on important life events just by hearing a song that I listened to when the event occurred. These are the albums that have affected my life directly.
- •MadvillainyUpon listening All Caps, I was blown away by the unique creative genius that is Mf Doom. The production in this song, and on the entire album, is breathtakingly brilliant. It's the most well put together album from start to finish listening. It's designed to be heard one track at a time, with out breaks. A truly inspiring album!
- •IndigiosimFor what seemed like an eternity, I had lost all hope in the current status of hip hop. With the release of Indigiosim, the first official mixture from the New York rap group The Underachievers, I knew that there was hope for hip hop. It reassured me that there are still rappers who refuse to adapt to the mind dumbing sound of trap beats, egotistical assholes and money crazed tracks. Thank god for theses brace souls.
- •What's the Story, Morning GloryRock and Roll was never a genre that I could apreciate, until hearing Oasis, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I was extremely ignorant when it came to music, and I would only listen to old school hip hop since that was the genre of choice for my older brothers. I finally branched out from hip hop, after hearing Don't Look Back In Anger, Hey now!, Champagne Supernova, and Wonderwall. But my next album, was my real fury step into rock and roll.
