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.
