An incredible follow up album and a classic today. I believe Late Registration is actually a better album than The College Dropout but the overall buildup and story behind TCDO just gives it the edge for me. Every single track on this album is incredible and in just one year, you can tell Kanye has perfected his production and his rapping has gotten better. Some of the melodies, sounds and bass on this album just hit your ear in the perfect spot. Like the song Crack Music is an ear pounding aggressive anthem of how music is a drug for many African Americans and then it transitions into Hey Mama. An ballad to Kanye's mom, thanking her for everything. The song is catchy, sweet and heartfelt but the transitions works when in theory is shouldn't. All in all an great album and easily a top three Kanye album.

“Late Registration” is Kanye West’s second album which came out in 2005. The album won Rap Album of the Year at the Grammys. This album is similar to his debut album with amazing production, A-list features and hit singles. Kanye does a great job with samples with my personal favourite being the sample of the song Move on Up by Curtis Mayfeild during the album’s second track “Touch the Sky”. The album has a great feature list including Jay-Z, Nas, Common, Adam Levine and others. This album delivered hit singles with tracks like “Gold Digger” and “Heard ‘Em Say” but is contrasted with some more soulful songs like “Hey Mama” and “Roses”. Kanye continues clever one liners like those in his debut album. Overall Kanye’s second album is one of his most timeless albums and earns a five out of five star rating from me.

Late registration by Kanye West is his second album. I really enjoy this album and many others do. It was released in 2005 and many call it a classic. It's Kanye at his best many say cause he is trying different and creative sounds at the time. Gold digger was a very big song at the time of its release and is one of Kanye's most famous songs. The album has a lot of chill songs and is a great listen the whole way through. Some of my favourites are Heard 'Em say, Drive Slow and We major. This album is a big recommend to listen to.

Cutie the bomb
Met her at a beauty salon
With a baby Louis Vuitton
Under her underarm
She said I can tell you ROC
I can tell by ya charm
Far as girls you got a flock
I can tell by ya charm and ya arm
But I'm looking for the one
