Oct 22, 2013Khaled does his usual cheerleading and gets some production credits himself, but the real trick he pulls off is inspiring all these artists to somehow save up all these high-grade club tracks and singles for the DJ's annual dispatch. Suffering from Success, once again.
Oct 22, 2013“You Don’t Want These Problems”--a posse cut featuring Mr. Ross, Big Sean, French Montana, 2 Chainz, Meek Mill, Ace Hood and Timbaland--comes closer to hitting the album’s bull’s-eye of gloating complaint.... Much of the rest of Suffering From Success feels rote, with too little payoff for the crassness.
Oct 22, 2013This album by Khaled is not only one of his best, its one of the best compilation albums you just might hear. One song that surely does not fit with the rest of the mood of the album, but is good in a way, is "I Wanna Be With You" with Nicki Minaj, Future, & Rick Ross. The rest of the album is damn near perfect.… Expand
Oct 23, 2013The best multi-artist rap album this year? I sure think so. This might be Khaled's best work so far.
Album starts with clever editing of Obama's speech after his second election with Khaled's "All I Do Is Win", "Suffering From Success" starts with some sick beats, unfortunately I can't understand why Future has to use auto-tune. It ruins the songs somehow. Ace Hood has mad flow in this song, just outstanding!
"I Feel Like Pac I Feel Like Biggie" continues where last song left, with great beats and flow from Meek Mill and T.I.
"You Don't Want These Problems" here we actually hear Khaled rap (for a tiny bit). Big Sean's voice and flow fits nicely in this song but once again Ace Hood steals the show. Songs are actually better just because of him. "Blackball" is my personal best from this album even though Future's auto-tuning is damn annoying. Lots of power and energy in this song.
"No Motive" interesting song, heavily influenced by Lil Wayne of course. "I'm Still" a bit slower song but that only makes it better, great combination of artists, Khaled raps again (OMFG!).
"I Wanna Be With You" the already known single, the way Nicki raps is the way I like it from her (annoying Future auto-tune again).
"No New Friends" first single from this album, this years "I'm On One" hit.
"Give It All To Me" uplifting song of Caribbean accents by Mavado and Nicki.
"Hell's Kitchen" my second best song. J. Cole and Bas tear it apart.
"Never Surrender" my third best song. I like Scarface. Hell, I LOVE Scarface. Brilliant song.
"Murcielago" the worst song on the album...
"Black Ghost" nothing special really.
"Take That Off" same as last one.. Just a filler.
"Weed & Hennessy" I like it when Mavado gets a solo song on Khaled's albums. Good stuff.… Expand
Oct 22, 2013While a fan of Khalid's past albums, I had high hopes for this album. Imagine my surprise when I listened to this album and found most of the verses weak and dialed in, and most of the tracks in general wouldn't cut it on a mixtape. After a few listens, I put on We the Best and that fully exposed how weak, uninspired and wack Suffering from Success turns out to be....… Expand
Nov 3, 2013Crappy banger after crappy banger, DJ Khaled's compilation album lives up to my expectations. It's also a fitting addition to his already horrendous discography. I really wish he'd release an entire album of good tracks, as his albums always consist of two or three tracks clearly designed to actually be good compared to the rest of the album. If he put out an album with nothing but these songs, he'd be in line for his first good release.… Expand
