    No Mac? I thought his album was a it improvement from his previous work

  • Confusion

    WORST album? no way, that’s crazy talk. It’s not great for a Jay album, still decent in comparison to other albums this summer. If it wasn’t Jay we’d judge it differently.

    What were your favorites from the summer?

  • Birch

    Yeezus was amazing.

    This list is basically just 15 albums that were released this summer. Jay Z and Kanye at a low together

    Yeezus is a terrific album, sure its different and its hard for us to embrace different, but if you take the time to play that album again and again, you will find a very deep, aggressive and basically kanye album

  • mvious

    thats your opinion.

  • Naaaaaatey

    Have ya seen Earl rocking all the louie belts in the hive video? Doris is fucking ok.

  • Aashim

    My first though too. That album was dope and a massive improvement from his previous efforts. Great guest verses from Action etc. and Mac still kept up with them bar for bar. Great album.

  • flacko
