    Ye's best album
    my personal #1 album of all time
    This 🤬 was flawless
    This was Ye at his peak IMO
    Although I can see how someone could argue for MBDTF
    But this was a different time, he was just coming into his own as a star rapper
    The live orchestra, lawd... 🤬 was GOAT

    drop those gems





    It also introduced the world to Lupe The Goat



    This album was perfect.

    I slept on this album at first.



    But when I took time to listen to it, I had to go to FYE to cop this joint. Some of the man's best work.........

    Second favorite Kanye album behind MBDTF. Both those albums at least top 10 for best album in last 25 years

    And Late Registration wasnt?
    He incorporated Jon Brion who never made any kinda hip-hop music before, to work with him
    He had a live orchestra during recording sessions
    He had string arrangements and everything
    This was the beginning of Kanye experimenting and evolving.

    This album was dope as 🤬 ! Remember buying two copies when it dropped. I can't say its better than MBDTF. To me, that's his dopest album, but LR?? Classic album, classic songs. Ye mastered the strings and instruments in a way never heard on a rap album before. I remember thinking he might 🤬 around and catch an L on his sophomore album after the classic CD. This 🤬 killed it and continued to build a GOAT worthy catalog

    @IceBergTaylor
    Dr. Dre has been using live instrumentation on 🤬 and I think the Chronic also.
    Too Short personally played the Bass lines on his first LP.
    orchestras musicians on Chronic 2001

    College Dropout had string arrangements also Kanye West in Scratch magazine said he wanted to release a remastered College Dropout to highlight thlse strings.

    MBDTF pushed the boundries of the Rap album as we know it with its fluid song arrangement and sound laandscapes.

    That was album that really made me embrace Kanye. I wasn't feeling College Dropout at first, Kane annoyed me as a rapper and it took some years to get into this work. LR was stunning record from the beginning and he definitely improved his rapping skills . Can't believe it's been almost 10 years.
