1. Late Registration
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was an instant classic and everything in Kanye’s career led him to that classic but Late Registration IS Kanye West. It has everything you want and expect from Yeezus. It takes everything that made College Dropout so good but added maturity. Every single track tells a story.
While Graduation has the more recognizable samples, Late Registration has more obscure and totally appropriate samples in any rap song. You know Kanye was really digging through record crates to find some of those samples. Top to bottom there are no skippable songs. Kanye West’s best album is Late Registration.
Best Songs: Gold Digger, Diamonds From Sierra Leone, Heard Em say
