    People seem to think that this should have been a free release as its only demo's and unmastered versions

    I can see where theyre coming from when
    - these tracks are not fully complete
    - each unmixed song is worth the same as a 'finished' song on tpab
    but still gets the vinyl and cd treatment

    so this begs the question, should kendrick be asking for money for this project, knowing it was unfinished

    edit - was it the right move releasing physicals?

    i know his fans love it (i personally don't care for half of the songs) so they're prob willing to pay for it, i just feel like if you're going to charge for throwaways AT THEY VERY LEAST master them

    see i kinda agree

    although i love the project, if it could have been better with someone mastering it before printing it on vinyl, that wouldve been great

    I find it kind of protentious asking your fans to pay for unfinished and unmastered tracks.

    What do you guys think Aftermath/Interscope is going to do when Eminem dies? I don't think they'll release unreleased music to the fans just for fun. It's all about the $$$.

    You can tell hip hop is such a young genre when a thread like this is made. Like someone said before, artists been doing this for decades..for several reasons.

    You seem to forget a very important point: this is the very first project to be released on all streaming services at the same time since the new rules

    You didn't have to pay to listen to it, it was in option.

    No one is forcing you to pay for it. I don't see the issue.
