College Dropout expanded on the soulful vibe that he contributed on The Blueprint, and the production was almost entirely handled by Kanye (Breathe In was co-produced by Brian Miller).. College Dropout touches on minimum wage labor, Christianity, his near-fatal car crash and materialism amongst other topics..

Late Registration is Kanye's sophomore album and was entirely co-produced by Jon Brion (he gets a shout out on We Major), and Touch the Sky was produced by Just Blaze.. aside from the great guest verses by Jay-Z, Nas, Cam'ron and Lupe, Late Registration touched on the ills of the 🤬 Epidemic, corrupt presidents and government officials, Africans dying, being exploited and being mutilated over the diamond trade in Sierra Leone amongst other topics..

    I almost choose college dropout, but then i realized that LR had a better balance of substance and musical imaculance. So i chose LR. Both are classics tho.

    Wooow LR runnin away with this??

    I look at it like this:

    Skippable/Average songs

    Dropout- Workout Plan, Breath In
    Late Reg- Roses, Gone

    Classic songs

    Dropout-Spaceship, Jesus Walks, Never Let Me Down, Slow Jamz, Thru the Wire, Family Business, Last Call
    Late Reg: We Major, Hey Mamma, Late, maybe Addiction, maybe Bring me Down

    Dropout>Late Reg

    Back to back classics but I think LR is better musically rather than lyrically where I think they tie. Then again, Late Registration is my favorite of Kanye's Catologue

    I can agree with that..as far as impact and what was going on in rap at that time CD was necessary and brought a different style to the game, but overall it's Kanye's third best album

    If Kanye actually has a classic to his name, this is it.
    IF he has a classic to his name? Word my dude? IF. You could argue that he doesn't have more than one and that would be pushing depending on which albums of his you're disputing but the albums listed in the polls are Hip-Hop classics not just Ye's classics.

    Production on LR vs Dropout lets say is a wash.

    But lyrically? How can you argue that Ye wasnt waaaaay better on Dropout?

    On Dropout Ye arguably got the best of Jay on Never let me down (Jay even had to drop a extra verse to try to recoup!)...Then he killed Free and Mos on 2 words.

    On LR Jay shat on Ye on Diamonds. Embarrased him
    On LR Lupe steals the show on Touch the sky
    On LR even Cam and Consequence outshine him Lol
