Seriously. I liked his old stuff but this is on another level. I like this better than American Gangster and better than Graduation and 8 Diagrams. His verbal dexterity is amazing and his storytelling is bar none.
He reminds me of a Stankonia-era Andre 3000 or a Black on Both Sides Mos Def. I highly recommend everyone listen to it, even if you're not usually into Hip-Hop.
