Always been a fan of Quik and Eiht. I think it's crazy they were both able to drop high quality albums this late in their careers. Even though it looks like they squashed the beef from back in the day they really went hard at each other on wax.

Who dropped the better album this year?

While both were good, Rosecrans is a much better listen. Sounds more like a cohesive album, even though some of the joints were released on that EP last year. The Eiht was too inconsistent for me for it to be on Rosecrans level.

I probablly played Rosecrans more but maybe that's cuz it came out earlier. Love the DJ Premier vibe that's throughout the whole MC Eiht album tho. I don't know man. I can't call it. Gonna listen to both over the next few days. One of em is gonna make my top 10 and the other one is just gonna miss it I think.

Eiht took out Quik (dj cake mix) this year.

which way iz west has more dope tracks and is a solid ,ill album. shits waaay more raw and hits hard and has those soulful, chill tracks too. i was big on it for a couple months when it dropped and need to re listen. rosecrans is pretty dope but is shorter and has 3 songs i consider wack/cheesy. The whole thing with his other recent releases with him trying to sound more current is backfiring. also Problem as an emcee aint doper than eiht and i honestly dont see how/why he's getting an album produced by Quik!? plus rosecrans just comes across as too bubble gum at points and too polished .Eiht had better features too and Eiht>>>problem.

Yeah I did cut 2 or 3 songs off Rosecrans and I'm not sure why Problem was Quik's first pick as the feature rapper. I think Dom Kennedy would have been a better choice. Him and Quik seem like a perfect match.

Musically Which Way Iz West is child's play compared to Rosecrans.
8 has too many tracks. Also the mixmaster is trash. Eiht's voice sounds effed up too.

Solid debate.. I may need to listen to both again before giving an answer but I gotta say that I was a fan of both of these albums when I listened and thought they were both top notch.

^yup a few too many and quiks production is more technical, pro and skillful and also yes some mixing and mastering issues on the eiht but still dope imo. has more replay. feels more like a real rap album cause it is.

You are wrong.

Kendrick, 8 (besides the shitty mixmaster and too many tracks) as well as DJ Quik and Problem dropped quality.
A tier below you got LMNO Twiz and Oh No Tristate.

On the EAST the only release(s) on that level might be ROC and DJ Prince Paul (old vocals though - remix redux)
A tier below is Agallah.

Naw the south will forever be the kings of hip hop the only way to make it is to move to Atlanta because the scene out there , NY and Cali will never have a scene like the ATL

As Deception said "Musically Which Way Iz West is child's play compared to Rosecrans."

I'm not going to comment on the but I can even play Rosecrans as background music.

Rosecrans EP and Rosecrans LP are probably the most pleasants surprised I had in hiphop in the last 2 years thanks to those beats
