It doesn't make any sense when the two projects are completely different and have nothing to do with each other.

This is why people can't enjoy new projects because they stay comparing it to something else. Especially when the albums are different.
post #11673 of 13051
How are the albums different? Cause one is any easy listen and one is homework? Cause one you can ride to and one you can....well, i dont know what you can do to the other one but anywhoo

Both albums are about dudes finding themselves, giving messages. One took a straight forward approach, one took a more dense approach.

You can compare the albums without saying one is better than the other...or you can compare and say which one you prefer over the other.

Right now I prefer FHD, it will prolly stay that way.

I agree with homie above in the sense that both albums are about Cole and K.Dot finding themselves after becoming lost and complacent in the current state of the rap, along with providing commentary on not just the rap game, but on the state of America on issues such as capitalism, greed, and of course racism. So on that note, these two albums should be compared.

 

J. Cole's album was excellent and what we needed both three months ago and especially now. It was easily his most cohesive album to date and is up there with the Warm Up and FNL. However, K.Dot's album is just on another level. Both have the same subject matter, K.Dot's is just more complex and takes longer to digest and fully understand. While I loved FHD from the jump, I had to marinate on TPAB to comprehend all that's going on. I'd say TPAB>FHD, but make no mistake, these two albums are the best work put out since GKMC.

Conscious rap doesn't have to mean lecturing rap or boring rap, and I think Cole and Big KRIT have nailed the sweet spot.


I'll be listening to TPAB more in the next few days but as of now FHD >>>
Dude I really thought you would have enjoyed that album. As much as I rate TPAB up with FHD and Cadillactica, I see what you mean. For better or for worse, Kendrick really is in his own realm of music. For some that's a welcomed experience, for others, it's so different, that there isn't much room for replay value. Sec.80 is closer to KRIT and Cole's latest works, every song sounds completely different from the next. GKMD and TPAB are so linear in sound that listening to one song almost feels unsatisfactory.  

With that said, I need that Cole and Kendrick album like a lung. 

I thought I would like it more too, and I'm still listening to it hoping I change my mind. Completely agree with Sec80 sounding closer to Cole and Krit

love how simple this album is. It's a great chaser to K Dots album so I play it immediately after listening most of the time.

Butterfly
Cadillactica
FHD


All 3 are great albums from a content and rapping standpoint but the production on Cole's ain't as good as the other 2. I appreciate what those dudes bring to the table. Really the only rappers from this generation that are doing their own thing, not worried about being trendy or non of that ****.

Dropping so much knowledge and sharing thoughts that Im sure of lot of us have had or will have

Amazing interview. I'm glad there's a rapper who has debunked the stereotype of college students, as well as the main issue of our pedagogy system. I feel like i've been trying to tell my friends that and they'd just tell me "Well why don't you get a 4.0?"

Video is Powerful .

post #11684 of 13051

Video just made the song better.

I thought the song was cool but hearing it while watching the video not only matches it but I appreciate the song more now.

post #11685 of 13051
Enjoyed the video... always liked the song because I knew the intent. People was taking the song too literal.... video should def get their mind right
post #11686 of 13051
One of my favorite songs off the album, video is dope. I would've liked a video for No Role Models though

What exactly are you asking? What album would i want to hear most or what album would be better? If you're asking the former, I'd want to hear a Cole/Kendrick album. If you're asking the later, can't really answer that without anything to base my opinion on

Cole did it man. 2014 Forest Hills Drive is Platinum

Long time coming, well deserved.

I know the sales arent important but I think when you look at the caliber artist that he is along with his content & message, the success of the album should be acknowledged and celebrated.
