Watch The Throne Would Have Given 04′ Yeezy Vertigo.

I’m not feeling Watch The Throne. Everything about it is overdose – the production, the rhymes, the ego. I’ve kept my opinions to myself tho. Cuz moms always said if you ain’t got shit nice to say don’t say shit. And cuz I thought I was the only one who felt the way I did. Until I remembered hearing this:

“I heard it, and I was thinking like, man, I really wanted more like of the simple type Jay-Z, I ain’t want like the, the more introspective, complicated rhyme- or the, in my personal opinion.

Kanye West on Last Call

True dat. Big ups to simplicity. Mother fuckers rapping about being faded off champagnes I can’t pronounce in Paris and shit. Man give me a bottle of OE and some gummy worms and I’d be just as content. Bet.

Granted Yeezy was talking about another record entirely but the heart of his message still resonates.

I ain’t gon front tho however. If Kanye and/or Hov were to ask me what I thought of WTT I’d prally say “Man that shit was tight.” Na what I’m sayin? What I’m gon tell em’.. I’m just a kid with a blog.

    you’re tripping. I think you’re missing the whole point/message of WTT.
