Kanye West – Late Registration (review – 79%) – 2005

30 Août , 2016  


Le seul de ses 3 premiers albums auquel je n’ai pas accroché. On entend que les prods sont travaillées mais ce n’est pas un style musical que j’affectionne. Niveau textes il est pas mauvais du tout même si les featurings relèvent la note lyricale.


Heard Em Say

Kanye parle de la dur réalité de la vie dans le ghetto.
Things we see on the screen that’s not ours
But these niggas from the hood so these dreams not far
Where I’m from the dope boys is the rock stars
But they can’t cop cars without seeing cop cars

They say people in your life are seasons
And anything that happen is for a reason

The devil is alive I feel him breathin
Claiming money is the key, so keep on dreamin
And put them lottery tickets just to tease us


Touch The Sky

I’m trying to right my wrongs
But it’s funny them same wrongs helped me write this song

Gold Digger

Chanson fun sur les meufs qui sortent qu’avec des mecs friqués.


Crack Music

La chanson compare la cocaine en Amérique avec l’addiction du Hip-Hop.



Ca raconte ce que lui et sa famille ont endurés la fois où sa grand mère a failli mourir.


Bring Me Down

Il parle de ses haters.

Your girl don’t like me, how long has she been gay?

It’s funny how these wack niggas need my help
Wasn’t around when I couldn’t feed myself
Dawg, if I was you, I wouldn’t feel myself
Dawg, if I was you, I’d kill myself
Made a mil’ myself and I’m still myself
And I’mma look in the mirror if I need some help


Diamonds (remix)

Difficult takes a day, impossible takes a week

I’m not a businessman, I’m a business, man!

People lined up to see the Titanic sinkin’
Instead we rose up from the ash like a phoenix



We Major

Kanye et Nas parle de la réussite de leur carrière.



L’hommage de Kanye West à sa mère quelques années avant qu’elle décède.


Diamonds Are Forever

Does he write his own rhymes, well sort of, I think ’em
That mean I forgot better shit than you ever thought of


We Can Make It Better

Chanson consciente où les 5 rappeurs décrivent cinq problèmes de la société avec l’espoir que ca s’arrangera.
