The production is just worlds apart. Maybe it just speaks to Tyler, the Creator as a producer? I mean the guy is a mad genius. But I think also the standard has been raised in the past two decades also. Super interesting juxtaposition.
Listening to some DMX because of course, and there's lots of early 2000s nostalgia for me in that, but after going on a binge of modern hip hop recently (albums from the last ~5 years) it's crazy to me how much production has evolved. The edgiest of edgy beats from 2000 sound so basic now. No disrespect but I find it fascinating.
