Lil Wayne's last album is straight up "meh", lol. Kanye is a good producer, but as a MC he needs work in a lot of areas (although he's getting better). Lupe is okay, but is overrated imo...
I agree, I don't dig Kanye's flow, but WHAT HE SAYS and HOW HE SAYS IT is genius. If you can name another rapper that can give you real statements in his raps and STILL have mass appeal (besides Jay-z and Tupac)I will gladly listen to him.
I agree, Lil Wayne is not great a writing albums. That is his one weakness. But, can you name another one (besides subject matter)?
Lupe is still a child. Give him a chance to grow. Watch what he does.
