For the last 3 years Kanye has basically been older Travis Scott. Kanye is one of my favorite artist ever but I can't excuse this ****.
I mean if yall hate the lyrics so much that it ruins the album for you, that's your opinion and its cool. In the same way, some people hear the lyrics and either arent bothered or don't give a **** because they love the music.
Pusha T is my dude and hes definitely way more of a rapper's rapper than Kanye at this point, but I definitely haven't listened to darkest before dawn since it dropped. Lyrics alone don't make a dope album to me, its just a part of the whole.
I'm sure every member of slaughterhouse will kill Kanye lyrically but all their group albums are frisbees.
And going back to my previous point, them slaughterhouse dudes would definitely kill Guru on the mic, but Moment of Truth will still crush any group album they've ever put out.
I'm not saying I wouldn't prefer Kanye got back on his lyrics but some people still mess with the theme and the sound of the album despite the lyrics. And some of yall just hate the lyrics so much that you gotta hate on everybody else for not hating it too, which is pointless because it's all subjective at the end of the day.
