    Ayeee. We finally found the last taboo! No cancel culture talk! Because, according to them, it doesn’t actually exist. That’s the line for these fake woke culture writers, got it.

    If it were up to me:

    It’s A Boy 2023. Personal, introspective album like DONDA and Mr. Morale and The Big Steppers

    ROTD4 2024 - bangers, hits, bangers, hits, bangers

    The Fall Off 2025 - loose concept, different issues covered, bangers, hits and introspection. List of all star producers since it might be his last album

    I mean a more personal theme in general. Cole is a lot smoother than Kendrick and isn’t a spazz with s---.

    You know Cole doesn’t do all that extra s---. “Take off the foo-foo” “take it off!” in a spazzy voice. “Push these ni**as off me like Huh!” s----s cringe. And Cole won’t do spoken word flow like Kendrick. Cole slicker and more melodic

    Imagine a whole album with tracks like Born Sinner title track, Lost Ones, 03 Adolescence, Lights Please, Sacrifices, let go my hand, once an addict. That’s what I mean by a personal theme @Uncle Luke

    Not sure @MsGrayJCN23

    Bas gets a 50% on that EP though. He was hit chasing with Admire Her and The Jackie. Generic songs. He can do so much better. The other tracks, Eyes On You and The Others, are good. Bas can make melodic s--- and not sound like other s--- out. I thought Milky Way was excellent. Nothing felt forced and he has his own style on it.

    Hit chasing is no good. i.e. Earthgang- Options. Ewww!!

    Same as it always was:

    Drake is the best hit maker. Cole is the best emcee. Kendrick is the best artist.

    Kendrick 286K after all the hype in the world and 5 year hiatus. People thought he’d do 500K. Cole did 282 with Offseason with little promotion and not as much buzz as Kenny. I’m thinking Cole can do 300K first week next one

    Ain’t nobody doing 500k these days but drake. And even with drake doing them numbers, his numbers are down from years ago. people forget d--- sold over 100k physicals, ain’t no more physicals, they come after the album is released now. I thought Kendrick would do at least 350k tho lol, that album trash tho, I’m not surprised the hype wore off lol. I think people who praise that s--- lowkey delusional, and I’m not even hating, cause I was ready to hear the album, but that s--- was a let down. It don’t even sound inspired, sound like that n----- just put some s--- together cause he had to. I believe he had writers block, and is probably still in it lol, people was probably in his ear telling him it’s been too long or he was in his own head saying he taking too long to drop lol, if this is what came of that he should’ve just stayed in his hiatus til he came out of that jam

    Are y’all hearing the s--- that n----- Logic is dropping tho? Logic is one of them dudes I think are skillfully ahead of Kendrick in 2022 for sure

    Cole, Benny, Conway, logic, drake, ransom, the og Nas … h--- even boldy James and lute lowkey , all better than kdot and dropping fire s---. Kendrick need to get off that weird s--- and get back on his hip hop tip fr lol, that n----- tripping

    Are those doubled because of the double album? Or does it not work like that since there aren’t any physicals?

    Pretty sure Complex put Off-season at #2 overall album of 2021 (all genres)

    Cole gets credit, just not in this specific tweet
