are you stupid
it's the mastering of the album in a picture, there's a shitload of clipping
along with Future he is legit a joke, the only people who like them are people from hhh/KTT and people who've never listened to a significant of music outside of hip-hop
Honestly the main reason I assume the whole Young Thug thing is a hypebeast fad for teens is because his fans never actually explain the appeal. They just go "no he's actually good!" without explaining why his warbling and whining isn't terrible. I know people like to be vague on /mu/ but I've literally never seen one person explain him even when I've asked.
Oh and to add to this, the only people I know IRL who listen to Young Thug are my teenage brother's friends who are always like "it's lit senpai" and a white 29 year old marketing dude who unironically also says stuff like It's lit senpai this shit's fire" and listens exclusively to the latest top-40 hip hop. I've even asked them to explain it to me and they can't, they're just like "this shit's hard senpai that's why"
No one in hip-hop really brings the same unique kind of energy as him. You and plenty of others might not like him, but he has a interesting flow and is bursts with so much charisma in his songs that its hard not to like him (as long as you're already in to this kind of stuff). Not to mention his great ear for melodies and absurd lyrics (which can be really funny sometimes)
But really, he's the type of rapper that you either love or hate
Barter 6 might be the most important hip-hop album of this decade. Its barely there production doesn’t so much frame his rapping as it does provide a surface for his words to dance upon, to explore the art of rapping in multiple dimensions: melodically, rhythmically, lyrically, and in terms of composition. His voice glides through the thick absence of sound. He’s responsible for a lot of the songwriting; he knocks out his own hooks, and his writing speaks to his use of phrasing, his backgrounds, the flows he uses, and the way he plays with each song’s internal architecture. On “Halftime,” his car-screech adlibs are elongated—it’s as if a camera panned suddenly from a pinprick of light, causing it to blur—so he can change tones, harmonizing this background yelp with his own main vocals.
His lyrical style stands out in a number of ways; the most obvious is his ear for figurative language. Thug’s similes often build upon familiar imagery, but move in unexpected directions. On “Check,” he opens rapping about a “Mink coat with the rolls like a Shar Pei”; later on, he raps, “All my niggas, they hard, call them beetles.” These aren’t punchlines intended to get rap fans doubling over laughing (although they can be funny in their unpredictability). Thug seems more interested in an original and idiosyncratic approach to imagery, in discovering pathways in language that haven’t already been heavily traveled.
In this, his lyrical approach is closer to a rapper like Raekwon than it is Lil Wayne, with whom Thug is frequently compared through some fault of his own. But any close reading of his lyrics suggest comparisons between The Barter 6 and Wayne’s Carter series, for which it is named, are a total misdirection. Where Wayne shredded his vocals against hip-hop’s formal constraints, Thug is a synthesist, a rapper of control, an artist in the process of reassembly.
Thank you for replying, you are the first person to ever do so to this question when I've asked.
So he has a "unique energy." How so? Like what does that mean. What separates his flows from all the other triplet-rapping guys that are everywhere right now? I can understand being a unique figure who's charismatic and funny but that seems pretty distinct from the music. Like if you JUST had those ingredients the final product wouldn't be good. Though the melody thing I get.
Sorry if this comes off asshole-ish.
Jesus of Nazareth, I did not expect this at all.
Thank you based Aphex
the tl;dr of this copypasta is that if you have shitty "barely there" production that takes minutes to make and do wacky noises on top then some white hipster will promote your album for free
usually when there's minimalistic instrumentation on something people focus on the other parts that are good, like the singing and well-written lyrics, since that's the point of putting the instrumentation so far out of the focus.
the problem with shitty top-40 hip hop is that a couple years ago when people would say "why do you listen to this garbage the rapping is bad and the lyrics are shit" their response was "yeah but the production is so well made!" now they can't do that because the production has gotten so lazy so they've started praising "barely there production" for vague reasons
This is the saddest album I've listened to in some time. and one of my favorites. The whole album is packed full with emotion and sorrow, about fleeting friendships and dejection.
I truly love this band.
and for the double up
This album fucking destroyed me.
I know he's talking about the clipping
I was pointing out how silly it was posting a picture of clipping from a completely different track and artist - putting a waveform of Monster in as the pic would make the point far better
I agree that Blackstar is like Black Tie White Noise. Because it's one of his best albums.
I find a lot of his melodies to be very interesting and basically ear candy, yet there's a certain weirdness/uniqueness that seperates him from other trap rappers
All that being said I usually can't/don't sit through a full project of his, but his high points are mountainous
this is absolutely the most retarded post i have ever seen on 4ailchan's /mu/
you wanted a reply? you got it you absolute fucking pleb

How do I into Future? I listened to DS2 and found it to be pretty mediocre, but then I listened to WATTBA and loved it (especially Diamonds Dancing and Live From The Gutter). Please anons.
he's more of a singles guy. check out codeine crazy and march madness. the monster tape was my favorite full effort of his, but ds2 really grew on me. groupies is a fucking monster track
I don't hear the Kate Bush influence that's constantly attributed to this album.
I'm a huge Kate Bush fan and also really into the idea of liking rap, so I gave it a good honest try.
I don't, I live in fucking Texas, that's why this all seems so tryhard. It also doesn't help than any professional critic that praises him is the "it's lit f.am" type on social media except way more embarassing because they're 30+
If you think he's a triplet rapper you need to actually listen to his music... he's doing things with flow that have never been done before. Seriously sit through the entirety of Barter 6 and tell me you think he's not one of the most technically proficient rappers in the game right now
She is so fucking good, but you can't go around hyping up your new album as a return to your old school chiptune shit and then put pop vocals on every track. I mean the music's dope but still.
I had never listened to Sigh before, I just new they were Japanese. I was in for quite a surprise
I like young thug because of the melodic tones of his voice and I think he's rather successful solely because of that. Yes his lyrics and content may not be as good as other rappers out there but its his voice that makes him fun to listen to. What's to say that screaming to the point where nothing can be understood is better than Young"s "warbling and whining"
Perfect. The first time I heard Escailles de Lune pt 2 I had tears in my eyes, it was so beautiful. I was really high at the time, but still.
If you like this, check out Neige's other project Lantlos
anon i swear to fucking god
I'm so sad chillwave has pretty much died now. I think VEGA Intl. Night School was it's last hurrah, I mean Washed Out's basically given up on chillwave, Toro Y Moi is shit now, and as for everyone else they seem to have disappeared
I have the perfect rare album for you
Doublestacked was possibly the weirdest and best SoundCloud project I've ever heard. The artist was notorious for deleting their albums. Many people felt like he deleted his albums because he was too self-conscious with his music. He probably saw them as not good enough, and took them down a few months after he'd put them up. Half a year ago, he deleted his soundcloud, and I haven't heard anything since.
Nope, fucker. This is what you asked for. I'm going to give it to you for the album and it's ALL you're going to get. Besides, now that you've tried too change the deal, who's to say you'll be satisfied with my beautiful cover of Girlfriend? [spoiler]it's also 3:30 AM and there are people sleeping in the same room as me[/spoiler]
That's not the point. The point is I'm only going to give you what we agree on. I don't know if you're on your period or something, but you're being an asshole about this whole thing for no reason that I can see.
Did I personally wrong you or something?
Did I kill your parents or something?
Guys what is this album I want it so bad please help if u can
after 3 years I've come to agree with this, it is nowhere near as slick as any of their other outings, almost downright lazy in some ways. its more of a collection of ideas, which is what it was intended to be in the first place.
>mfw >>61930144 it's real
>mfw tripfag won't believe me
i just want to help, i found it in the archive, do i send you the link of the thread or what
Got it to work
thanks man ;) in all fields
Too much music is about the lyrics, the substance when music is supposed to be about the style. That's how music started. There are too many rappers that have shitty generic boring lyrics that have no value and young thug is the same except he styles it along with the music and make his vocals have style over substance. If I want to hear good lyrics I'd listen to Kendrick.
Holding back your music till the very end
You might be an even bigger fan than me!
this album makes me want to drink
