But, I'm a just take an L because I can't disagree with you but I cant' agree with you.  I think he's fresh, authentic, and original.  You don't.  You have valid points but I think they undermine the comprehensive project he delivers.  Canibus is technically a dope record but he doesn't made dope albums so  a part of me doesn't care if you're technically great if you're not dope.  Hence, it just falls back on if you're feeling it and you're not.  Me trying to persuade you is stupid. 
I was just very underwhelmed by the project.It didnt suck me in emotionally like I hoped it would.And you cant really anaylyze it because really its pretty thin and theirs nothing to analyze.You can use the excuse of its just music to be played when its club music and party music but this album is supposed to be meaningful and deep and it really isnt.Its a fine album to play in the background while im doing something else and not really paying attention to but other then that I was extremely dissapointed.
I like how you felt about the album, Jaydc.  I was trying to figure out how to say it, but you touched on it.  It has a different style, and there are some good songs on there, but overall it wasn't spectacular.  The flow would change during the song, which for me fucks the flow of the song itself up.  It's definately music I would play as background music, not a "you've got to here this shit" album.
Time for a change...bring it!

It was average I like about half the songs.The style and production is kind of dull.It felt like 808s and heartbreaks part two


not really, but like I said, your average rap fan isn't going to feel this album
It felt just like it.Slow moving beats,half singing half rapping,songs with average lyrics about heartbreak and depressiong that just talk about it but dont really explan things or go into detail.
Id give it a 6 out of 10.I was really looking forward to this album but its just not that good.


average lyrics?


Yes,average lyrics.He has mediocre wordplay,not many multi syllables,no clever metaphors or similes,his plysyllabic count is very low.His rhyme schemes are very basic.Theirs no clever lines to figure out or make you damn.The lyrics arent particulary deep either.Maybe if your 12 years old these lyrics are deep.But their just broad strokes of emotions without really scratching the surface.


wow, so you're those type of niggas that bust a nut when Lil Wayne says something like "I am legend like Will Smith" then you go  :banana_trippin: thinking you hearing something clever


here is something I think someone of your standards will like:

As far as Cudi's lyrical ability, I don't really care that much about that as long as you can create actual songs and that they have substance. Take Slaughterhouse for example; miles ahead of Cudi lyrically but couldn't make a proper song to save their life.



that sums it up perfectly, but I wouldn't say they are miles ahead lyrically, but only on a flow standpoint.  They can rap nice but they are rapping about nothing

That's not true.  Off the top of my head:

Sound Off: introduction to slaughterhouse
Lyrical murders: statement of the album - "it's about the lyrics stupid"
Cuckoo: each rap about characteristics or actions that make them cuckoo
Pray (It's A Shame):  mini-bio and struggles
Cut You Loose: current state of hip-hop
Rain Drops: personal sorrows

They all rap about something.   The execution isn't the best and it should be improved but they're all speaking on something.  It's not like Slaughterhouse denied it's about the bars.  That's what brought them together and that's what pushed them to create the album.

Here's CuDi explaining each track off the album.   I fear he might be developing that Ye complex.  He bigs up his own work and talks about who listens to it as if it's legendary.  Man, I hate when artist do that.   I like humble CuDi.   Still pretty dope to hear his insight.

Tracks 1-8


Tracks 9-15

obviously they rap about something, when every song is the same redundant gun clapping, collar popping nonsense we hear all the fucking time then it seems like they have nothing to say

That's not the case though.  All of'em rap about their reality.  None of them are bullshiting.  This isn't ja rule.  Maybe you can't feel what they're saying but they're saying something.

Great album IMO. I will go buy it now

I think people need to realize that some albums take a few listens to get into. it took a few for me but its a really greatly produced and put together album. Its what i would call alternative rap though. He isnt the world greatest rapper but its a great album none the less. Dudes got the combo he can sing, he can rap, he had good subject matter as well.

I liked BP3 but theres other albums better than BP3, this is one of the them, OB4CL2 is one of the others.

I went and bought this today after listening to it like 6 times on mp3. I hadn't really heard any Kid Cudi other than Heartless (what did he do on that song hard to tell) and the crookers remix of day n nite

its quite popular in Australia, well at least on triple J. That, Brooklyn We Go Hard & DOA are 3 USA hip hop songs that seem to get play outside of the Aussie hip hop and other music on there

Doesn't make sense tho...
It's a club song but it's a bout some lonely stoner
