I feel like the more I listen to it, the more little things I catch and the more I begin to understand the effect it's having on hip hop.

I do think it was a challenging album to make. You can already see the impact on the music released post MBDTF. Just look at Section 80 clearly inspired by MBDTF.

There's a reason C4 keeps getting pushed back.

Rappers have to at least try and top MBDTF. No one can put out mediocre shit anymore.

This album has marked a new era of Hip Hop and in the next few years we will see the effect. Some people just don't wan't to accept it yet.

Like what?
Hell of a Life for example is Ye's attempt to try and blend his desires (most of which are considered unholy) with his Christian upbringing... which inside he feels won't happen and gives up (Lost In The World) and chooses both sides. That's basically what the album was about really... looking beyond what we see with our eyes and what we think we understand about the world.

I'm about ready to do a full breakdown and write up of an album.. it's truly fascinating and very deep.

EDIT - and before people go "oh you read too much into things" this is a man who himself stated that, for example, in the Runaway movie he purposely used colors and other methods to expand upon deeper imagery that's within the messages... so best believe he puts more thought into what he does than just basic ABCs.

Yes, the album definitely challenged creativity in hip hop. Hopefully, we've entered a new stage in the hip hop where artists are worried about putting sub par music out. C4 keeps getting pushed back, Section.80 was obviously inspired by MBDTF as well.
