with all of the kanye >/< jay-z in the rihanna thread, i thought this deserved its own thread.

you can maybe make an argument for college dropout. but thats about it

People's opinions on music is subjective

What's the point of this thread?

It's the middle of the night and you worrying about Jay-Z and Kanye .. Go wash your face

Nope, can't even remember the last time I played AG while CD, LR, and MBDTF get pretty consistent rotation

American Gangster was a good record. Not on the level of any of Kanye's best albums though.

You know, I second guessed myself too. Then I went back and listened to it.
Intro - wack
pray - wack
american dreamin - wack
hello brooklyn - wack
no hook - enh wack.
roc boys - i personally like this
sweet - wack.
I know - hell its neptunes, classic.
party life - wack
ignorant snarf - wack
say hello - i snarfs with it
success - probably best track on the cd
fallin' - I snarfs with it
blue magic - I take that back about neptunes + jay-z = classic, cuz this is wack.
american gangster - waaaaaack

album is trash. but then again. the last classic he made before this was the blueprint. I rage at the amount of filler music Jay-z has made since the "Dynasty Roc la Familia" era...

This is just straight ridiculous mean.gif

AG was a weed plate minus 2 songs at most. It's better than Kingdom Come i'll give you that though laugh.gif

How about NO. Second best album of the back half of his career and you can make an argument for it being the best one.indifferent.gif

Jesus........ I dont really think its fair to judge every track as a standalone track seeing as how they all tie in together and tell the story of the rise and fall of a hustler but ok....

-How do you call an Intro that is a skit wack? This is how I know you were just hating to hate and nothing you said after this would hold any merit.

-Pray was good, especailly verse two.

-American Dreaming was wack? What song were you listening too?

-Lil Wayne was terrible on Hello Brooklyn

-I cant keep doing this. Tell me what was wack about this song

-Finally something smart was said. Roc Boys is one of his best singles ever

-I didnt like Sweet either. A point for you

-Another smart thign was said-

-Party Life was one of the few rap songs about girls that was good ever.

-mean.gif

-Say Hello was hot

-This is by far the worst thing you said. How is this the best song on the album? Half of it is filled with nonsense rambling from who else but Naz. Awful verse

-Fallin is the best track on the album

-indifferent.gif

-Song was good. Not one of the ones I give heavy play but it was good.

Minus two songs at most he said. Name 3 albums better than it that came out that year. Dont worry I will wait.A

 

AG was a fantastic album and no KanYe album was better than it. Some of them may be tied with it, but better? Nope.

You are comparing intros that are songs to a skit.... A skit...... A SKIT!!!!!!! It's not meant to count for anything

Trust me I have heard them. I never knew people were out there taking skits seriously.

American Gangster intro w/ Denzel was GENIUS

Everything played right off the the movie..........then followed by Pray...aww man thats some epic s_ right there mean.gif
post #19 of 161
I said the second album of the back half of his career, that means post Blueprint 1. Black Album is first, then AG. AG ranks in the top half of his albums for me.

Yeah I liked it too, it set the tone. It's one of those things that just feels right the first time you hear it. It belongs there

i don't mess with AG outside of Say Hello.

the album is very forgettable
post #24 of 161
Had no idea people weren't feeling American Gangster...that's honestly one of Jay's better albums. And Sweet was probably my favorite track.

I'm scared to ask y'alls opinion of Kingdom Come now? mean.gif

AG was pretty bad no matter where you place it in his career. I'm at work so I can't see what other albums came out that year but that also doesn't mean it was any good though.
post #28 of 161

Kigndom Come was good for its time. It wasnt timeless like majority of his albums but it was fire when it came out.

Can not agree with the "AG was wack" talk.

That album had GREAT production and good lyrics...

Not sure about it being better than every Kanye album tho
