What do you think?

There's a mixed bag when people discuss him.


I think the guy's a great producer- I love most of what he does for others, as well as himself, but lyrically he's just mediocre. I think he put more into his lyrics in his first CD, but since it has seemed to fall off.

His last CD was a risk, and I do like some of it- a few songs are real tight, but it's a dark dark cd. You can tell through the lyrics that dude needs some help.

He is overrated and full of himself.

Yes, of course he is overrated and full of himself.
However, he is a very talented producer - that's why he got success in the first place. His lyrics were really pretty interesting on the first album (and second - to a lesser degree). But he lacks solid skills as an MC.
There's no way I'm going to spend any time with his latest, but I will always have a soft spot for College Dropout. It's just a good album - hopefully he has got a healthy savings account...

I agree. No one loves him as much as himself. He is the brightest star in his own universe. The guy is such a tool. He should get beatin with a wiffle ball bat over and over until he confesses he is a closet pervert who is in love with Joaquin Phoenix and thinks JP is the best rapper of all time!

And it had to be Biggie and 2Pac who got sniped out! We are in luck though, there is still time....LOL

For me, he made hip hop/rap more palatable and as someone mentioned earlier College Drop Out was a good album.

"George Bush doesn't care about black people"


I'll just never be able to get past that one.
