So in contrast to yesterday's post I'm going to talk about the better album that dropped on the same day. Cole put it down. He finally gave up on the largely mainstream sound he thought would sell records and gave his early fans what they wanted. Above average production and excellent lines and themes. I have to say I'm biased because I won't listen to Yeezus for my reasons but it's hard to imagine Kanye banging with Cole lyrically.
His use of samples from songs this generation would see as classics in our lifetime is probably my favorite aspect. Makes a nigga feel old but experienced in hip hop. I bought the deluxe edition. Pricey but I'm a fan.
