    shocked Cole didn't name drop at all on this album :srsguy:
     
  2. i hope there will be a lot of the experimental heave instrumentation singing shit ...

    i don't know if everyone will agree with me on that but i love that and thats one of the biggest ways in which their styles have become so congruent now ...

    because they are both doing a lot of that nowadays and its something which takes the genre to another level imo ... so i would not accept an album without that and just full with bars, because its not taking full advantage of both of their extremely wide ranging skill sets ...

    i think it should be like 15 songs with 1/3 heavy bars, 1/3 big banging beats big hook hit records and 1/3 experimental instrumental singing shit like i said ...

    but not like 5-5-5 songs of each but rather mixing these elements into each song roughly 33% each in a way that makes sense

  3. a few songs for sure, but i think you have to take advantage of these new skill sets which they are both bringing and are so congruent with each other and are taking the genre to another level

    this album has to be some game changing shit people won't accept anything less, so i don't know if just bars would do the job

    although there definitely should be a few tracks where they just going off, absolutely

  4. Idk, I just doubt they'll use that platform just to rap a bunch of nothing. Think they'll try to say something. Their albums been like that they whole career, don't see them switching it up

    Plus temptations and shock the world was on some storytelling shit.
     
  5. I want this.

  6. I don't even like talking bout the collab, cause I don't see it dropping. I'll believe it when I see it.

    For all we know Kendrick and cole dropping solo projects next year

  7. i said this before and ill say it again ... even tho kendrick has tackled "social justice" issues for two albums now and cole one ...

    is that really enough to change the destructive cycles in society when rappers have been making 100000 of albums for decades about the other end of the spectrum ... glorifying the street life ...

    cole and kendricks collab is going to have to tackle these issues even more and really try to make a change ... ALTHOUGH i 100% would not want another album which follows a story concept the whole way through ... a loose theme perhaps, yes absolutely, I'm sure they will find a creative way to do it .. but they should not restrict themselves ...

    it should be all of their best songs with a rough concept reflected in the title and a lot of songs which tackle issues but not exclusively that ...

    #Lockz coming soon :kobe::khaled:

  8. Calling it right now, that Kendrick and Cole will be unexpected. Not saying all of it will be unexpected, but 75% of the album will not be what people expect. I just just think Kendrick and Cole are in a different space creativity (as with TPAB and 4YEO) other than just penning BARS after BARS. I think both of them are more concerned with "What are we going to say on this album" as opposed to "let's rap our asses off just to have Bars."

  11. untitled umastered dropped march 2016 and tpab march 2015 ... they both seem to like leaving exact years between their projects ...

    February will be exactly that for kendrick

    it doesn't count for 4YEO because its only 10 songs and cole did this on purpose knowing the collab coming soon ...

    they for sure been working on it we know this ...

    "This February bet shit get scary when i f--k around drop ...

    Locks" - February 2017

  14. @NYC What are your thoughts on the album after sitting with it for a few days? Did it grow on you.

    One of my concerns is that we may never hear those old tracks from when they first met. Sonically I kinda don't want another TPAB/4YEO but at this stage in their careers I think it's the only thing I can see them do.

    it def grew on me but not enough to fall in love with the album.

    I still enjoyed Born Sinner and FHD more but this album isnt as bad as i thought before.

    Only issues i have is the album is short (10 tracks, maybe 6 real songs?). I think Cole should've added 2 tracks. I feel 03 adolescence and Tale of two cities would've been dope as hell on this album.

  17. Yeah. I don't see the collab album being a purely "rap" album.

  19. this album missing Big Amount ...

    na jokes but that actually made me realize what kind of banger this album actually is missing ... :khaled:

    essentially big amount lol, after immortal there should have been a track where the street guy is just feeling a crazy amount of joy from all the money he racking up ... just a huge hit about stacking dough and making gwap ...

    perhaps the title "ITS MINE" ... :weebey::weebey::weebey:

    talking about the joy he feels about his money from the street life :weebey::weebey::weebey:

    and its an absolute BANGER and super joyful and positive ... but then later on she's mine he realizes its not real joy

    :weebey::weebey::weebey:

    holy shit i just took this album to a WHOLE OTHER LEVEL

    gotdam y'all cole really gota contact me before dropping albums lol
