My buddy asked if I'd heard the new Kanye single Love Lockdown, I listened and couldn't finish the song cause cheese was clogging my ears. She then asked if I heard the other new single Heartless, gave it a listen, once again couldn't finish it. Then she told me to hear the song from the album with Kid Cudi called Welcome to Heartbreak, couldn't stomach that either. I couldn't tell if these songs were for serious so I googled the album.

Turns out the album is called 808s & Heartbreak AND the cover is an image of a broken heart. Barf.

Basically, I hate this album.

Kid Cudi's awesome, though.
I'd recommend his mixtape "A Kid Named Cudi"

SInce he was on the album this could be semi-on-topic.

FaSho, have you listened to Kid Cudi's mixtape "A Kid Named Cudi"

Personally this album was pathetic. As if the mans head isnt big enough. Now after being the self proclaimed voice of todays generation he will rise to an even higher status. He needs to shut the **** up and stick to making good beats and actually flowing over them. This is the most mainstream conformist bull**** he could possibly put out.

What happened to Graduation and College Dropout? Well there goes a large part of his fanbase including me thanks to this new wonderful album. He can enjoy having them replaced by 12-13 year old girls watching television.

**** you Kanye West, I used to respect you and enjoy your music and now you leave me listening to nothing.

Did you know he has another album coming out in the next couple months? And from what I've heard as of late, it isn't going to be layered with Auto-Tune. Meaning it will consist of material that you would consider "good 'ole" Kanye. Don't go flying off the handle because of one album that was not to your 'standards' for the man. Why would you totally kick him to the curb? It's his first 'okay' album.

He only did it for the money, before EVERYONE was tired of Auto-Tune, and it worked.

I think he's smart.

Because he has become the biggest ego in the music industry. Actually recently he claimed to be the voice of the present generation. And I disagree, this was not even close to an okay album. It was written to make money and be on the top 40 all day long. Sounds NOTHING like anything he has made.

So yes kicking him to the curb works for me. A sold out ego tripping has been.

Agreed. Ill give him that, he is a smart mother ****er. Cash in on a dying trend. Not the first time its been done and certainly not the last.
