Today’s a big day for Hip-Hop, son. Honestly, there’s no excuse for anyone not to buy an album today. A bunch of anticipated albums are dropping, and you’d be soulless if you didn’t support someone. With that being said, there are two artists who are the center of attention right now: Kanye West and J. Cole. Ye is putting out his sixth album, Yeezus, while Cole is vying for the top spot with his second record, Born Sinner.
Naturally, people are speculating about who’s going to sell more. Ye was on the opposite end of this type of competition back in 2007, when he challenged the all-powerful 50 Cent to hand-to-hand combat. Ye ended up the victor, catapulting to superstardom, while Curtis has yet to fully recover. Could Cole do the same thing to Ye? Maybe, but mainly because his music is a little more accessible than Ye’s right now. I could go into a review of both records, but I’ll save that for Monday and Tuesday of next week. Long story short, Cole could end up outselling Ye, simply because he reminds fans of the music Ye used to make.
In any case, which album are you fine folks feeling? Kanye? J. Cole? Both? I’ll give y’all my thoughts in a few days, but I want to know how y’all feel. From what I’m seeing on social media, people either love or supremely hate Kanye’s album, while people are either cool with or indifferent to Cole’s record. What’s your verdict? Holla at me.
P.S. I’d advise you guys to check out Mac Miller‘s album too. Yes, I just said Mac Miller. People love to hate on the dude, but I’m a fan of his music and I’m digging some of the cuts on this Watching Movies With The Sound Off album. Good music is good music, son, regardless of where it comes from. Chuuuch!
