Fetty Wap had a good thing going. It seemed every song he released was a banger. All he had to do was take the singles, add a couple more tracks for balance and he had a great album (reviewed here by 20 Watts’ own Kyle Driscoll).

Instead: 20 tracks. Over an HOUR AND FIFTEEN MINUTES. OF THE SAME SONG. AND SAME AB-LIBS.

How many rappers can actually release that amount of music and not have it be the same thing? Maybe five. At some point, someone should have thought to tell Fetty Wap not to make his album nearly as long as two episodes of Chopped (though according to Reddit the album syncs up perfectly with the first two rounds of the Chopped Teen Tournament). What point was he trying to make on those extra eight songs? That he loves women or the trap THAT much more?

Fetty Wap had a classic album in his hands and he gave it to Monty for another four features. You have to earn that type of self-service, just look at the fact that Magna Carta Holy Grail exists.

But let’s give Fetty a break. He’s young, probably doesn’t have the right advice. But hey look, there’s a new The Game album coming out…

19 tracks…

73 minutes…

………ON DISC ONE?????

Yes, The Game is releasing a sequel ten years later to his classic album The Documentary with two discs and 38 tracks. I don’t care if The Game and Dre sacrificed the tail end of 50 Cent’s career to resurrect 2Pac and have him rap on half the songs, I still wouldn’t want to listen to that many songs by The Game. Hell I wouldn’t want to listen to that many songs by any rapper unless Kendrick, Kanye and Young Thug came together to make an album executive produced by Jesus.

Let’s do a little math. If disc one is 73 minutes and we double that to account for the second disc that would be almost two and a half hours. Things I could do in two and a half hours:

Watch the first Avengers movie.

Play roughly 10 games of FIFA.

Take half of the SAT.

Microwave 150 hot pockets (two at a time).

Start and get bored of a game of Monopoly.

So basically what I am saying to all of the rappers out there: chill the fuck out. There is literally nothing you could say that could keep me or 95% of your fans interested this long. Just because Lil B blessed the world with his 101-track, nearly 6 hour masterpiece 05 Fuck Em, doesn’t mean you should try to make your own long ass album.

Unless you’re Kendrick.

    Finally someone said it. Even the HOTTEST FIRE is just too much after listening to the same drum machine beat for 60 minutes.
