    The only 2 that are actually good are wtt and wattba.
    It’s a formula that only works with super stars who have chemistry and anything else is forgettable trash (uzi and Gucci album for example)

    There’s definitely a distinction to be made between partnerships that came together naturally (Ye/Jay, m---/Red) and those that came together out of obligation or expectation (Future/Drake, Uzi/Gucci), and one song is usually enough to tell which is which

    Black out it different in my eyes because a)it was a pre wtt era b)m--- and red have always felt like more of a group than just two rappers collabing on an album

    ksg is immensely overrated and though there’s okay songs it’s not amazing and we certainly could’ve lived without it

    why do people still make this distinction lol. It's an album. There's virtually no difference between an album and a mixtape aside from what an artist feels like calling them....and it's been that way for a decade at this point.

    Yeah, they call them mixtapes/playlists to have an excuse if they are not well-received.

    Acid rap was great. I had that album on repeat when it came out.
