It seems like everyone who was gonna buy it sort of... did.
 
2013-07-03 09:10:47 PM  
People bought it? It was on torrent sites within, like, eight seconds.

Which explains why people stopped buying it.  Who wants to waste money on a guy who named his daughter North West?

He probably thought that was really clever.

It would be pretty clever if she ever wrote a book or story titled "North"

Sorry but that album sucks. The only person I know who likes it is my cousin.

Guess he should have named his kid North and this album South

People from Washington or Oregon?

It sucks because he is a lazy, spoiled fark who waited until FIVE weeks before the record was supposed to be released to actually work on it. Even then it was Rick Rubin that did most of the work.

I could seriously not care if him and his entire clan were tortured to death.

Thanks for posting.  Hope that lets people realize he's not a genius.  Not surprised the album was a mess...

Rubin tried really hard to put a positive spin on that, but it just comes off as Kanye West is an unprofessional farkhole who doesn't have any respect for anyone.

Jizz Master Zero: Oh gawd, here comes the endless, "It dropped because of the piracy and the leaks and in no way because people are sick of my shiat."


It dropped because it didn't have a crossover hit.  And by "crossover"  - I mean top40 stations that cater to the generic market (white people).

There aren't any radio singles playing nationwide, so there's no expansion.

I loved the album, but Magna Carta Holy Grail dropped today. That's not going to help Yeezy's cause.

You wanna know how I know you've never heard the album? You called it generic.
 
2013-07-04 04:33:18 AM  
Oh, is he still relevant? I assumed his moment had passed, or is that what's happening right now, the passing of his moment?

Time to do something stupid to pump up publicity.

Trying to take a loaded gun on a commercial flight works for everyone else.

I don't even have an album and managed to crack the top 20 doing that.

drjekel_mrhyde: Sorry but that album sucks. The only person I know who likes it is my cousin.


I like it, or at least a few tracks. It's very different for him, and it doesn't surprise me that it's not hugely popular in the main stream. It's modern, not very traditional rap music, and full of some kind of dark and serious themes (and, you know, stupid shiat too - not hitting on every track, but who is).

Actually he said he gives no fark about leaks. Such a terrible terrible arrogance
 
2013-07-04 08:17:56 AM  
Sales dropped because people torrented it to decide if they like it and decided they didn't like it enough to pay money for it.
 
2013-07-04 08:53:18 AM  
Good. Dude is talented, but he needs to be taken down a few pegs. The whole "I AM A GENIUS AND A GOD" sh*t is just tiresome.

Stop telling us how awesome you think are and just let your damn music prove it to us.

That's one of the most interesting articles I've read in years.  Thanks for posting.

I gave his stuff a try, the best it got, to me, was "listenable".  I can't understand why people think he's such a genius.  The disparity between his talent and his success is so ridiculous that the only way to make it look reasonable is to compare it to his wife's.

I'm no Kanye fan, so it troubles me to white knight him, but that article could just as easily explain his genius - that he did five vocals, writing the lyrics for two songs, in just over an hour.  Although I guess it depends on what those songs end up sounding like.

THIS. I haven't heard the album yet, so I can't comment on the quality. But Kanye West is anything but generic.

Yeah, in that case then I was a genius at every course I took in college.
