Man, its an album I keep on revisiting. I really don't listen to MBDTF outside of the intro and a few other highlights (all of the lights, Runaway are among his best songs imo)Late Registration > MBDTF
@ me, let’s talk about it
But Late Registration is powerful man, not my favorite album (TLOP) but his best imo
Touch the sky- First off, that beat , then you get into that first verse about his insecurity before fame (when he's at his best), setting the stage about his claim to fame the hunger is tangible. "I felt like Bad boy street team, I couldn't work the Lox", then of course you have Lupe skating on that last verse.
Gold Digger- Not my fave song, but that **** hits
Drive Slow- My favorite Kanye Song period, admittedly bias, but that beat combined with his and Paul Walls verse about letting fame/riches get the better of you and leading down the wrong path resonate to this day imo especially after all the rappers we have lost since
Sierra Leone Remix - Man people always vouch for Jay on this track and rightfully so, but Kanye skates on this. "I forget better **** than you ever thought of"
Hey Mama- Mothers day anthem, I like what Jon Brion did with this, made it polished and Kanyes mumble singing is A1
Gone- Cam + Kanye on top of their game
Late- My favorite outro of any Kanye Album, I'll be late for that. I went to junior high with all of them and they been slow
HIs BEST album, not my favorite but his best
