Kanye West 808's and Heartbreaks is a flop

HAHAHA!! I called this one back in September. Kanye, nobody wants to hear your bitch ass sangin all the time. NOBODY. The only reason you sold as much as you did (projected 425,000 first week which is barely half of what graduation did first week out) was because 75% of buyers were not aware that the lead singles "Love Lockdown" and "Heartless" were going to be the recipe for the entire album. This just goes to illustrate my point further as to how much people just follow the leader rather than creating their own path. There is not one person, whose hip hop opinion matters to me, that can say they are impressed by this album. Sorry Smalls, that includes you. Kanye shit the bed with this release and I really hope he quits with all this sunglasses at night, rockin the fox tail, tight jeans, deck shoes ass bullshit...

as far as flopped goes...he definately didnt do that...he is number one on the billboard charts right now with both singles and the entire album sold more than any other album coming out at this time...but as far as kanye the person goes...i think this whole time he thought wayne was saying "go homo" cuz the kid has lost his mind...but i listened to the entire album and the work he put into it and the production is acutally amazing..but im with u all the way, i miss the old ye...holla atcho boy...

When I said flop, i meant it strictly in the terms of sales. Look back at Kanye's 3 other major releases, platinum out the gate first week every time. This joint doesnt even sell half of that... Can you guess why? And dont say its the economy. Its because this fool (Kanye) is suffering from a severe case of bitchassness. Look, as far as losing your mama goes, i wouldnt know, havent had to deal with that, but when it comes to losin a girl, you gotta grieve in the privacy of your own home, not create auto-tuned homoerotic R&B music and drop shitty albums. And to address the "production is amazing" im not buying it. Its overly produced blowhard ego boosted orchestra music with 808 drums that have had the "grit" removed. RZA is pissed (remember when RZA introduced all the world to the gritty drum sounds that come from an 808??). The whole point of the 808 is to maintain that grittiness in the drums and samples but kanye managed to "whitewash" that and by whitewash i mean take one of hip hop's best tools and turn it pop. I am not hatin on Kanye gettin scratch, ive been a fan, but as a fan i feel it is neccessary to blast Ye for this foolishness until he gets his shit together and bounces back. LISTEN HOMIE, you are Kanye West, you can pull more bitches than Ollie without sayin a word. Step yo game up and quit simpin over some punk ass trick.

As fas as the Kanye purists out there are concerned, you know your boy laid an egg, just admit it and move on, so i can stop blastin Kanye on this site all the time.

album most definately doesn't compare to the previous 3. I think hes having a mental breakdown....starting when his moms died. Now hes all up the fashion world's ass. I hope the old 'Ye returns asap.
