one day if not already be known as the true greatest of all time. He is already the most admired rapper today. Every rapper who has a record label, clothing line, or any sort of business venture should thank Jay-Z because
he is the trailblazer for the lifestyle your favorite
rapper has become accustom to.
instead of taking all the credit
it with mc's that have
passed away (big, pac,) or may not be as hot anymore. All those that
chastise Jay for stealing, borrowing, or sampling other rappers should know that
for example by taking an old Ice-T song "99 problems" he is helping the evolution of hip-hop
without forgetting the legends that
paved his way,at the same time he is showing the younger rappers how to manage being
a well known public figure from
the hood and how to handle all the attention from
high profile court
cases to high profile girlfriend.
is something that
is never brought
to light amongst the common rap fans that
to music but would
rather skim through it. It is common among those who criticize Jay to say he was good back
in 95 but his skills have
taken a back
seat to creating a catchy radio single. He has admitted some
truth in that assertion however
one must remember that
the purpose of the single is to advertise
itself so in order to draw you in their must be a sure fire hit. Supposedly his best album
Reasonable Doubt had no such hit. It is no coincidence then that
it was his lowest seller and thereby slept-on.
My last point is to refer to the battle between Jay-Z and Nas. To make my point I will
paraphrase the lines that
the mc's used to battle first Jay would
attack Nas credibility
making statements that
were 100 percent
nowhere as good as his first, how he was getting screwed out of his money (if you check reasonble doubts
credits you will
see he did pay searchlight publishing) and how he wasn't what he claimed to be. Nas responded back
by making a whole
jay gay. Go back
to ether all the parts people
always mention are parts not based off truth they are just gay jokes same thing
with the stillmatic freestyle
gay jokes and theat whole
"on the freeway to memephis" nonsense.I will
give him that
Ether is a great diss song but it doesn't cut with the same power
as super ugly song did. He said he left condoms in nas's baby mamas seat that
had to hurt him. This
is at the end the day what the battle was gay jokes big lips jokes versus
personal revaltion that
At the end of the day anyone who says ether and nas are better than takeover and jay probably is one of those people that
never wanted hip-hop
to progress never want anything
new or change Jay-Z however
is the oppsite as he continues
to see how much
he can change hip-hop
for the better that
is why he is the greatest of all time.
"crime family well connected jay-z
and you fake

"pops new exactly what he did when he made me try to get a nut and he got a nut in what"
"and all you other
