Graduation is the third studio album from Chicago rapper Kanye West. Lyrically, Kanye analyzes himself and talks about his life after becoming famous and how he is criticized from the media

American rapper and record producer Kanye West has released eight studio albums, two collaborative studio albums, two live albums, three video albums and four mixtapes. West has sold 21 million albums and 100 million digital downloads worldwide. Seven of his studio albums have been certified at least platinum in the United States, and his output has been generally met with consistent commercial and critical popularity.

With ‘Graduation’, Kanye West pushed hip-hop to its limits, ushering in an eclectic era that would embrace everything from rock to Chicago house. Published on. September 11, 2018. Its release coincided with 50 Cent’s third album, Curtis; steeped in the traditions of gangsta rap, the latter stood in stark contrast to Kanye’s futuristic hybrid. A competition between the pair ensued, spurred on by 50 Cent’s assertion that he would easily outsell his rival. In the end, Kanye won by a landslide as Graduation sold nearly one million albums to Curtis’ 691,000

When Kanye West's Graduation-which turns 10 today-happened to come up in a recent staff conversation, I knew we had the makings of a piece. Is Graduation overrated or another Kanye classic? An album that spoke to your soul or 'Ye's emptiest effort? It had all the makings of a great hip-hop debate, so I instigated, set up the fight post and had them go at it. ADVERTISEMENT.

Def Jam. Roc-A-Fella. While rap music famously thrives on the kind of drama surrounding this week's 50 vs. Kanye record-sales standoff, even this showdown's closest followers would probably admit there's something faintly procedural about it. Maybe it's because album sales don't really work as a precise measure.

Sounds alright. Wish they didn't change the tracklist so much though.

Sounds alright. Definitely CD-sourced but what can you do, it's a bootleg. It's good for what it is though

If anyone knows how many marbled gray vinyls were pressed that would be awesome! Just curious!
