I know I’m not the only person who thought this soundtrack was dope.

Ten years have gone by, and my thoughts on this album remained the same. It’s a great soundtrack.

Kanye West – My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy: 5th Anniversary

mbdtf

This album is nothing short of amazing.

It’s one of the greatest rap albums I’ve ever heard. It’s too dope. A majority of music and hip-hop fans feel the same way. Kanye delivered an incredible album.

The first few times I heard it, I knew it was dope. It was special. It almost felt like a fairy tale or a film. The protagonist gets in trouble and has to overcome a larger than life obstacle—in this case, Kanye has to win back the world after the Taylor Swift debacle. Eventually, the protagonist overcomes his trials and tribulations.

Kanye sort-of did.

The Alchemist and Chris Co – How Does It Feel EP

I have to admit, when this came out, I didn’t know who Chris Co was. I didn’t know why Alchemist would make a project with him. I went ahead and downloaded anyway.

It wasn’t until recently that I searched his name via Google and was able to put a name to a face. I found out he is from Detroit. Also, up until recent, I had never heard the five-track project.

The album is a classic, most people would agree. Kanye was two for two. Two albums under his belt and two very dope end products.

Can you believe this was one of the two Kanye West albums—the other being 808s and Heartbreaks—that I really didn’t check out? Crazy, I know, especially for this one. I could understand why I would shy away from 808s because it was different and full of autotune but Late Registration? Nah, not Late.

Young Jeezy – Let’s Get it: Thug Motivation 101 – 10 Year Anniversary

This album is a modern-day classic.

It’s not spectacular lyrically but who says that’s part of the criteria for a classic album, especially in today’s time?

The album is banging. You could play it straight-through. There isn’t a skippable track on here. Each song has something about it that makes you not skip it.
