Ball Street Journal by DLOOS

While other writers keep a look out for what’s new and hot on the mainstream and the underground, I do the exact opposite by writing about shameful attempts at hip hop hits on the radio. The most recent disappointment I have heard was E-40’s new album not-so-cleverly entitled “The Ball Street Journal”, which is almost as witty as his last album title “My Ghetto Report Card”. E-40 was at one point in the 90s a hit rapper, who produced gold and platinum albums and even did a song featuring the late, great Tupac Shakur. He disappeared for a number of years and resurfaced with the anthem of the Bay Area, Tell Me When To Go, which also went platinum. The new cd is more mindless, not thought out trash and shouldn’t be purchased by anyone. There is so little to say about this cd because it so overwhelmingly boring and mediocre.

I don’t know what to make of this album. One minute it seems a wrong decision for Ye’s career, and later I feel its the best thing he has put out for a while. However, there is one solid fact about this album, it IS ground breaking for the genre of hip-hop. When I first heard about this album a few months back, honestly, I was disgusted. When Love Lockdown came out, I was disappointed…But now, I see why Kanye made this record. It is a good album, and I have to say I really enjoy it…Hearing the album all together really made it sound great, and I’m Glad Kanye was able to convert me.

Positive Tracks:Say You Will, Welcome to Heartbreak, Heartless, Amazin, Street Lights, See You in my Nightmares, Coldest Winter, Pinocchio Story

Negative Tracks:Robocop (Sorry, I just hate this song), Bad News, Welcome to Heartbreak(The New Version)

On the fence:Love Lockdown, Paranoid

My favorite tracks: See You in my nightmare ( we hear Wayne actually tell a story in a verse), Amazin’, Street Lights, Heartless, and Pinocchio Story.

Honestly, I have to give it to Ye, He took the most annoying tool in hip-hop/R&B and made it enjoyable for me. One Question though: What the hell did he do to “Welcome to Heartbreak”.  When it leaked, it was the hottest shit out…now it sounds horrible
