    So, some fuck nigga decided to vandalize Prodigy's mural not even 24 hours after it was completed.

    Compared to Magna Carta, this was waaaay better. Not getting into the dumb ass shit you all are on about, but 50 wasn't trolling, it was "alright" & these niggas nowadays don't wanna hear smart shit.

    That's why when he said the money phone line, which in all honesty, he has a point, EVERYBODY started doin it, like a bad ass kid whose mom tells em not to do something, so they go do said shit in their room, same thing.

    For this being in the era of old man jay, I'll throw 9.99 at it. Again, I'm comparing to this to MCHG, which wasn't garbage, but most definitely was sewer water, 4:44 was nice.

    Blk album
    American gangster
    Vol 2
    Reasonable doubt
    Blueprint


    All those albums shit on 4:44
    You're on crack
    I like it just as much as AG so it is tied at #5. A better concise project than Dynasty, Vol1/3, BP2, r Kelly and Kanye collabs lol

    It ain't top five imo. I liked it though, I prefer grown man rap nowadays and it ain't an album for pop hits or mainstream radio play. Don't think u should look at it in that context. It's better than like 90% of shit out today but that ain't saying much. In terms of his own catalog it's on the lower end for me but I still liked it, solid project for an old head it ain't trash by any means

    From a few songs I've heard from 4:44, Jay reminds me of a professor speaking to their collegiate class. Sort of interesting to me.

    Magna Carta is his worst album. Yes, even worse than Kingdom Come. The album was straight garbage.

    Listening to you guys talk just reminds me how weird my standards are (or have gotten). I'm grading on the steepest curve imaginable. If an album has 4 or 5 songs I can rock to out of 10, that's like album of the year to me. I trash SO much of what I come across.

    Same.

    Just give me 3-4 songs that have repay value and that's a good album/mixtape for me.

    Otherwise it gets designated as background music and eventually forgotten about.

    If you said 4-5 song are fantastic and the rest are decent then I'd say that's good...but only 4-5 are good, c'mon, son. If I'm skipping more than half the songs then it's not good.

    Im not only listening to 3 songs though. I like every one. With the weakest being Caught their Eyes and Smile but the execution of the concepts on those songs still 8/10 imo. Been listening to the whole album every other day since release. I really really like it. Jay flipped out and these are some of the best soul chops since Piñata and Be

    I'm a massive Tribe fan and I liked We Got It From Here. A lot of critics loved it. If anything I think it's underrated.

    I think it is objectively top 3 Tribe. Even better than the debut as a whole

    Man I really like how $uicideboy$ took elements of early Bone Thugs and 3 6 and ran it through distortion. Their soundcloud page strong asf imo.


    Speaking of soundcloud, do you guys really think Chance came through with a cheque phat enough to bail out soundcloud? Thats super suspect.

    I like a majority of 4:44. Sue me.

    It's not his best album or even in the top 5 (fully agree with The Epidemic's 5 albums that are better) but that doesn't make it not a good album. The production is particular is ridiculous! NoID continues to bring the heat...

    [edit] One more thing, I really like Smile the more I hear it, Gloria's poem does give me the feels but fucks sake, can people stop biting drake's flow already? I don't like when Drake does it, much less anyone else

    I hate to say it but i only like legacy off of 4.44
    i gave it a sample listen last night the lyrics cool but it suffers from nas syndrome
    i just didnt like the instrumentals I hate to say it that way but damn... i just didnt like them and there were point audio i could barely even hear them like it wasnt mixed that well
    maybe I didnt have my headphones on point or something but i just didnt like his selection this time and really it was almost unbearable.

    Haven't listened yet either it was just a heads up to anyone who's a fan who wasn't aware. I appreciate it when people gives me a heads up about shit since I'm typically out of the loop.
