    you could argue taylor may influence change

    but making a list on albums that "changed music history", anything less than a decade old is void automatically. they knew that tho, the taylor album is in there so people will talk about the list

    Kid cudi already was building a solid discog before Kanye was in that era and yes every song on motm is better and more meaningful than Kanye droning about not having a kid lmaoooo

    Nigga he had A MIXTAPE out.. what the f*** are you talking about?

  • Jan 16

    Genuinely asking, why Fearless 2021 specifically outta all her albums?

    motm came out after and no it did not do it better

    I think if you’re being fair MOTM and 808s is debatable

    Even if you prefer 808s i dont think its crazy for someone to prefer MOTM

    Not the ones I would have picked

    Raising Hell should be on this list

    Rap music was largely singles based until it came out.

    It went platinum in 3 months.

    I don't really get the comparison outside of "they are sad"

    Plenty of sad albums out there, 808s and motm are just too inherently different

    Yeah MOTM isn’t even really a sad album honestly I feel like the arch of the album is very optimistic and it has a happy ending

    I wouldn’t compare it to 808s and it def doesn’t have the same impact. I do think quality wise it can hold its own with a lot of albums though

    So fresh and forward thinking for its time but basically a timeless album imo, just spun it a few days ago and still loved it. Probably more than ever because I’m approaching the age he was on the album and its mad relatable

    Don't get me wrong I like both motm 1 and 2 more than 808s by far but credit is due for what 808s did

    Agree with all you said

  • At this point they just include Taylor in everything for maximum engagement and clicks

    Brain dead list. 808s did not exist in a vacuum . Motm exists , Lover Boy Andre exists , Prince exists , and all did it better .Completely nonsensical. I think they just added Taylor to avoid being firebombed or something idk

    yep 808s is a dead end in terms of influence. amazing album but that's BECAUSE it sounds so unique. look at the 80s pop influence and african msic influence all over that album, completely absent in any hip hop artists "inspired by 808s". except for a few drake songs i guess

    also rappers started using autotune because of lil wayne and t-pain and did it in their style, not kanye's

    and drake got being emotional from houston (zro trae etc.) and added his own feminine spin on it, cudi got it from having mental illness since birth, that's how we got emo rap. nothing to do with kanye.

    none of this is to hate on 808s which is my 2nd favourite kanye album, just stating facts. if anything it makes 808s better that nobody could duplicate it

    That’s downplaying it heavy and you can make that same argument for the rest of the albums listed. It did more than just birth Drake.. it birthed modern rap as we know it. Without 808s you do not get Drake, Cudi (yes he worked on it but if Ye didn’t put him on I don’t think Cudi gets that huge of a fanbase), Future, Thug, Uzi, Juice, Abel (not a rapper but yeah) and the list goes on

  • amory

    no free engagement with these c***institutions

    They do it intentionally knowing it’ll generate clicks, no doubt about it

  • Hahahhahahah knew they were gonna add Taylor

    Fearless really?

    MOTM1 is a classic it’s about on the same level as 808s imo

    Shout out to connecting Kid Cudi with emo rap, I also think he had part in it

  • I’d accept Adele - 21 instead of the Taylor album

    None of those albums changed music history that I’m aware of.

    What new subgenres or artists were spawned from those albums?

    808s and Heartbreak gave us Cudi, Drake, Juice WRLD, etc! A new sound pallet of Rnb/Hip-Hop/Pop Blend,

    How did 808s give us cudi when the success of day n nite prompted Kanye to keep making that album ?
