Every few years a great r&b album drops that just stands above the rest of the pack. The last one for me personally just happened to be by an awkward new sing-songy rapper and a great underground beatmaker. Nx Worries, "Yes Lawd", a collaboration between Anderson Paak and Knxwledge, has been that album in the last few years for me. I remember 88 praising it and I felt like I just couldn't relate to it at first (I was gonna trade it).



I remember 88 putting it in his years best list on here and me arguing it's not hip hop, but listening back now, it really is and also so much more. Knxwledge was a name I was kinda familiar with, but I never dug too far into his catalog upon the time I first heard this.



He along with Anderson Paak pull off something that falls between a more soulful, spaced-out r&b version of "Madvillain" or dare I say a more pimpish "Moment of Truth" because each member is at the top of their game with what they're bringing to the table on this colection of tracks. The songs are short, some almost sound like random interludes and at first might seem out of place or disappointing when they come to an abrupt end just as your starting to decide that this is a song you really like and then, BOOM, it ends.



Lol, I was like wtf, but it's all good, with repeated listens each of these random out of place short songs fits in to a much more genius puzzle than I at first realized I had purchased and almost got rid of before I truly appreciated this album's pimpish humor (shouts to rosebudds) and amazing madlib meets preemo-esque production and skits that tie all the songs together perfectly (you want mayonaise?)




.

How does this album rank in you guys top r&b/rap albums? I put it up there with some of the greats from the last 20 years like the dream - love/hate and franky ocean's - channel orange.

No hyperbole, one of my fav albums from this decade. Knx is some kind of mad scientist descendant of madlib. And paak keeps up with the anything-could-happen pace. Album's a gift. So excited for their follow up.

Anderson Paak is overrated as fuk. The dude is pretty much a one note singer.

Frank Ocean - Blond Is the best R&B album in looooong ass time.

lol at me being pudgy

what is this 3rd grade? If I am pudgy that just means I can afford to eat good. You lose in any scenario against me gayfer.

My presence in this thread is basically that of God or even the moment Kool G Rap returns on the scene to shatter some small time Chain-snatching, jive-ass, maricon motherfucker's operation.




Kiss the Ring, bitch

mm. i don't know. it's got some filler tracks. don't get me wrong, the good songs are godly. there's just some skippable tracks. i don't skip any tracks on yes lawd. iiwii.

frank's 2017 singles were all fresh as fuck. i deleted the skippable tracks off blonde, and replaced them with those singles.
