A lot of people claim that hip hop is dead, and in some senses it is, or rather it has been for some time now. This brings to mind the statement 50 just made recently about people not wanting intellectual type albums from the Nas/Jay-Z/Tupac/Biggie era Interesting Link, it begs the question of where hip hop will be 10 years from now. Graduation is what hiphop needs right now. period. Every song and every verse are put together in such way that you can't help but to praise Kanye for putting so much work in. The album sounds better the second, third, fourth time you listen to it, and that is what a classic album is supposed to be. I'm not the type to go out and buy an album because most times I can just download them for free, but for Kan's new release I felt a need to show some support. If we fans don't buy these albums from artists we appreciate who will? The bottom line is Kanye's graduation album is a success in every way a 2007 hip hop album can be, and more.
