its gonna be in a store near you tomorrow, go hand them a 20, get your change back, and im sure you'll be able to hear it then, that is if you picked up the album before you handed them the 20.  ;)  8)

Too many skits, too many vocal samples and he's too average of an MC.  Other than that it's actually pretty good.

Yo Aler G, i was once a huge skeptic of Kanye's and i usually hte that sped up vocal sample stuff, but Kanyes songs are actually really dope.  Unfortunately, he change the best song (family business) and left off some standouts.  What you need to do is get the advance, and get the official copy, and make your own mix.  

And yo, Kanye is pretty nice on the mic actually, but ore importantly he makes good music (family bus, never let me down ft. jay z, we dont care, etc)

his lyrics and skillz on the MIC are "eh"...but he's a dope producer. Thats pretty much all you need to have a good album now a days lol

see i'm not a fan of his lyrics and delivery and get tired of his sped up vocal sample easily, so therefor i'm not going to go out and cop this cd, i'd rather download this first to see if it's worth my money, peace.

trust me man its definitely worth your money and he doesnt use sped up vocals on every song, for the last couple of tracks they arent even samples including workout plan!

like teecee said, download both the advance and retail, casue advance has some hot songs not on retail and vise versa, personaly i love this cd, i fuckin hate the skits tho, it give the cd such a childish sounds, his lyrics are ok, his flow is enough, but his coruses and beats keep me listening,

The advanced copy was much better than the actual itself...he should stick to being featured on songs and producing beats...

Its a solid performance, It was a good 17 dollars well spent. I've spent a shitload worse

I like vocal samples and they are good on this album but it starts to piss me off on here when I find it difficult to hear all the lyrics in a verse when some chick is singing over the MC's vocals.

The skits have to go, it just ruins it for me.  I gotta get a hold of the advance and make a nice 12 track CD (which is what he should have done).

^^ It's even more annoyin', if there is a tracklist but without numbers before the track-names, so that you have to count them to know how the currently playin' song is called :-X

lol... it's really annoying. I find it funny that not one person could have suggested it when the album sleeve was being designed and printed.

"You know what guys, wouldn't it be easier if we had the tracks numbered somewhere?"

"Nah man, just have them spiralling round the spokes the CD fits onto in the case so that the listener have to turn the cover round and round trying to count them."

(Luckily I think the CD's so hot I can play it front to back ;))

lol y'all got GZA's "Liquid Swordz" ? That's the most annoying tracklisting of all fuckin times ;D

^^ Yeah LoL :D It confused me when I first listened to it because the track-names didn't really fit to the tracks :-\  It took me long to understand that the tracklist is mixed up :P

I think the Canadian version of Supreme Clientle is different then others but that's a really fucked up tracklisting.  The one of the back isn't the same as the one in the book (the version in the book had 10 more tracks) and neither matched what was on the CD.

Bulletproof Wallets is just as fucked up.  It has tracks listed on the back that aren't on the CD.
