  21. Wavy Shprocketts Says:

    if any of yall who i fucks with on NR come to the chi without giving the kid a heads up i’ll be sorely disappointed

    if nothing else at least you have to stop by the townhome here on the south side for some of the wifey’s curry chicken (get your head out of the gutter lol), shit is better than oxygen (no she’s not paki she’s just absolutely ridick in the kitchen)

  22. L.P.CROOKS Says:

    ((((((((((((())))))))))))))))

    1…say what you want bout kanye but if he died tonight (no pac) all of his albums would be instantly labeled classics and he would be called 3 kinds of genius for his revealing lyrics and blah blah blah

    2…um ….true.

  29. BKScribe Says:

    honestly.. i think kanye more lyrical than given credit for..

    i jus hate when people quote the ‘mayonnaise colored benz miracle whip’ line like thas the pinnacle of his lyricism

  30. L.P.CROOKS Says:

    @ BK
    I agree that shit was standard

    “whether your broke or rich you gotta get this
    havin money’s not everything …not havin it is”

    Much better

  31. BKScribe Says:

    yo lp whats good with that music on ya page?

  32. L.P.CROOKS Says:

    yo that my lil brother shit… detroit cat livin in the south (florida)
    he does the tracks, rappin and singin
    what you think of it

  33. Wavy Shprocketts Says:

    people who say ye isn’t lyrical need to swallow cyanide

    and frankly most of his lines are going over people’s monkey heads anyway

    when he says: “before he spoke / his suit bespoke” — that’s fucking ill.

    when he says “the Goyard so hard man I’m Hugo’s Boss / why I gotta ax what that two-door cost / house in hills, two doors from Tracey Ross” — that’s fucking ill.

    i could go on. i don’t think he’s as nice as lupe on the straight lyrical tip but look — kanye openly admits it — he dumbed down the lyrics on this album because he was doing stadium joints. little brother can do “house of blues” joints because even though they’re nice as fuck, they’re not doing venues bigger than little bars and shit. ye is rocking NBA stadiums, give me a break, the dude is massive.

    he could afford the best ghost-writing but why? he cracked the code which is that if you rap from the heart the fans will fall in love with you (no homo.) he won.

    people need to admit to themselves that finally there’s a pop artist who’s the biggest AND the best. be happy for the motherfucker! he’s making good music.

  34. BKScribe Says:

    shit is decent.. i gotta listen more intently but first impression was a good one..

    1 Q tho.. sup with every florida cat lookin like rick ross mayneeeee

  35. Boosie Says:

    This is like his worst song on this album, why would he do a video for this?

  36. L.P.CROOKS Says:

    @ wavy yea kanye rappin from the heart(see the real meanin of keepin itreal) is the key

    @bk yeah give my dude a listen i dont even think thats his dopest shit on there but he gone change it up tho… maybe im bias but I think his shit is dope

  37. BKScribe Says:

    that bio shit was decent.. keep me updated.. it’s interesting to listen to new artists..

    the shit is tho.. nowadays more than ever there is a more distinct line drawn in the sand between doin it for the art… and for the money

  38. L.P.CROOKS Says:

    The only thing bout kanye that fuck wit me tho(nah) is his message
    he basically be sayin fuck school just get money look at me I did it
    that shit is the worse thing to tell kids

  39. Paperstacker Says:

    kanye openly admits it — he dumbed down the lyrics on this album because he was doing stadium joints

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    LOL…Spoken like a true Kanye Stan

  40. BKScribe Says:

    aight L.P. and the rest of yall… im out

    1

  41. L.P.CROOKS Says:

    Aight BK

    5000
    *pulls all-nighter on this school project*

  42. Two-Times Says:

    where all the E-THUGS like yaboy, Killumanti at ???

    it’s no fun with out them…

    those kids probably think they got E-Stripes cause they talked shit online…..

    yaboy is getting the 1st E-Thug Life tattoo

    and

    Killumanti is probably mad cause he didn’t think of that first

  43. Wavy Shprocketts Says:

    L.P.CROOKS Says:

    pulls all-nighter

    ^

    *salutes*

    i would say pull nighters now, rest later

    but instead i’ll give you the truth: pull all-nighters now and get good grades so that you can get a damn good job where you get paid ridiculous cash to pull all-nighters

    the sleep depravation doesn’t go away but let me tell you, when you lose sleep but your pockets are green you don’t miss sleep as much

  44. nation Says:

    yo that Rider part 2 knocks

    it’s a shame Lil Wayne did it 6 months ago

  45. Two-Times Says:

    smh @ yaboy & killumanti

    they stuck on losing….

  46. nation Says:

    chea is the greatest talker of all time. I swear he’s like ty in his prime. he’s biggums with a enter/spacebar

    he can speak on any and every topic with such sophistication, you’d think he’s a reliable source

  47. Two-Times Says:

    nation Says:

    yo that Rider part 2 knocks

    it’s a shame Lil Wayne did it 6 months ago

    ^^^
    yeah it’s a damn shame!!…

    go cop that “Elephant in the Room” on 03.11.08 !!!!

  48. Wavy Shprocketts Says:

    you love my style n*gga

    lol

    *pops own collar*

  49. That Man Says:

    I always wanted to go to Chicago…

    I can’t way in on Chicago Vs. NY until then, but I do like deep dish pizza.

    lol

    random

  50. That Man Says:

    I’ve just heard Curtis Jackson brought the rights to rename Wrigley Field to “ThisisCurtis.com”.

    Don’t kill the messenger.

  51. Two-Times Says:

    post that Mechanic video

    that song is hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  52. sleep Says:

    Brooklyn pizza»» chicago pizza

  53. Wavy Shprocketts Says:

    sleep Says:

    March 7th, 2008 at 1:32 am
    Brooklyn pizza»» chicago pizza

    ^

    ninjer that’s like saying a mcdonald’s hamburger is better than filet mignon

    on the real though:

    aged, smoked texas brisket > air and water

    one of my housemates [||] senior year of college was from texas, his parents would bring some brisket up each semester that they smoked in a pit in their own backyard (any entree that requires you to dig a ditch in your backyard to make it is going to be piff). shit made me forget steak, wings, pizza and all the other chicago cuisine because it was the absolute truth

  54. Two-Times Says:

    aged, smoked texas brisket > air and water

    ^^^
    yeah ofcourse….

  55. Wavy Shprocketts Says:

    suwoop gaaaaaaaaaaang
    and if you ain’t widdit then you in the food chain

    is little wang [||] falling off

    if i have to ask i guess i already know the answer

    drought 3 = inexplicable stroke of genius that can’t be replicated

    unless i hear some heat soon, i’m going to be convinced that that’s the verdict, cause wang’s shit recently has been doodoo [||]

  56. SAG Says:

    kanye is crazy

  57. Korean Slap Boxer Says:

    Kanye was wining on Big Brother bout Jay using Chris Martin too. At the end of the day tho….

    Beach Chair > Home Coming

    Home Coming with John Legend > Home Coming with Chris Martin

  58. 456 Says:

    graduation=overhyped

  59. 911 Says:

    I thought everyone of Kanye’s albums were perfect after hearing it that first time…I haven’t changed my position since on any of them. I could relate to a lot of his idiosyncrasies…Chicago and Cleveland aren’t that different I s’pose. Midwest Up.

  60. steve Says:

    i cosign with nation, i hate this version

  61. complexone Says:

    Fuck coldplay. Crackin ass voice aggin

  62. 456 Says:

    AG> Graduation, say no

  63. 911 Says:

    I would play along 456…but your camel meter is undetectable to any means known to man. Jay-z takes no L’s in any of your arguments so by me even putting up a staunch defense for Ye’ and counter pointing your every point would only make you better in latter arguments in defense of Hov.

    With all that said I’ll abstain and resort to something tried and true.

    Kanye last three albums > Shawn last three albums.

    *replaces 456 queen with rook*

    ^You’ve rendered any debate meaningless by going too wide. To actually cover that ground would require far more time and space than this format allows. I commend you on the use of strategy, but let me also note: it is the tactic of a weaker, less equipped opponent. So in reality, you conceded. And would like to try another argument.

    *lays 911’s exposed and cornered king on its side.*

    For the record:

    AG>Late Registration>Black Album>Graduation>Kingdom Come>College Dropout. I would argue that Jay wins on points and the fact that Kanye has not ever matched up to him lyrically. Kanye still basically lives in the Camel’s shadow, as he has admitted on more than one occassion.

  65. L.A FINEST Says:

    MUCH LOVE ESKAY ! u a hustla for real all the way to killa kali NAH RIGHT IS KNOWN, but the rap game needs a shake up we need more kanye west and MURS and cee-lo green ,,,,,, THE FAKE RICK ROSE ..and the young jeezys and the bama wrap has lost us in the south!!!

    they beef one min. then be hugging in flicks the next what happnened where if u battle u battled and left at that no hugging and kissing ala kool moe dee and L.L.

  66. Lanna Jouja Says:

    all 3 of kanye albums> kingdom come

    Black album> all three of kanye albums

  67. miltee Says:

    That Can I Speak to Biggie track was on a few mixtapes 1 year ago. It had Chingy, Main-O and Hav Boy on it. That Bizzy Bone verse was added, but it’s been out for some time.

  68. miltee Says:

    …lol @ the best of bootcamp mixtape.

    How are you gonna have a tape like that missing OGC? lame.

  69. spotrusherz Says:

    How are you gonna have a tape like that missing OGC? lame.
