    This gon' be a long paragraph about... THE GREATEST HIP-HOP ALBUM SO FAR. (I would say "of all time" but who knows what's coming sooner or later, right?)

    I wasn't Kanye fan back in like idk. 2009? 2008? I liked a few songs, these popular ones, but I never really listened to the whole Kanye album. I wasn't a hater tho, not at all. I just wasn't into his music that much. I was really into that lyrical miracle s--- mixed with "real Hip-Hop" sound. Anything more artistic than DJ Premier sampled beat / Dr. Dre piano mixed with synths and hard drums was a no-no for me for some weird reason. My homie (back then, f--- him now, I hope he got a--- cancer for trying to hit on my gf back then) sent me a link to "Power" by Ye. Boy, I was blown away by this song. When I first heard that "Ohh eeee Ohh eee" I knew it was special, like not that typical rap project I would bump at the time. Something clicked in me. Song itself was my go to when I needed inspiration. Keep in mind I started rapping back in 2010 so this was some serious ego boost for me.

    For some other reason... this was the only song I've heard off this album untill I broke up with this girl that my ex-homie tried to smash. It was 2014, I was kinda f----- over that relationship ending, so I was bumping everything, literally every rap album I could just to zone myself out. f---ing Kanye appeared on my playlist again. I listened to the whole album. I was heavy into Childish Gambino artistic s--- in 2014 so imagine how f---ing crazy MBDTF sounded to me for the first time - 4 years late. I think I listened to this album back to back at least 20 times in a few days. I was into that artistic phase so album like this made me go spastic. I don't think I was as inspired as I was back in 2014.

    2017. I moved out of my parents house. 700 km away from the family house. Guess what album I was bumping in that train ride - MBDTF. "Runaway" was the anthem.

    Guess what song I was bumping just the day before I proposed to my gf at that time, now wife - POWER, you motherfucker.

    THAT'S JUST PERSONAL SIDE OF THIS ALBUM.

    If I would go with artistic opinion I would go for 2-3 days non-stop posting... beats, lyrics, samples, synths, drums, drum brakes, Kanye singing, features, particular sounds.

    The best Hip-Hop album so far, I really doubt any human being will be able to top this ever, but once AI take over, well... we'll see.

    It's already a masterpiece but I would love to hear what Em would say on a remix. Just the beat is fire af

    This album isn’t about Kanye anymore. Its about hip hop. Hip hop won the race and started to rule the world the day that MBDTF came out.

    It's really unique and beautiful. I would say his best album. I recently relistened to the whole thing. Still amazing.
