This is in response to Da yAy. Does he really not rap only about money? Let's analyze his lyrics, the one you posted.

"I had to hustle, my back to the wall, ashy knuckles
Pockets filled with a lot of lint, not a cent"
-Rappin about how he had no money yet

"Gotta vent, lot of innocent of lives lost on the project bench
Whatchu hollerin? Gotta pay rent, bring dollars in"
-Rapping about getting money

"By the bodega, iron under my coat, feelin braver
Doo-rag wrappin my waves up, pockets full of hope
Do not step to me - I'm awkward, I box leftier often"
-Rappin about how "hard" he is

"My pops left me an orphan, my momma wasn't home
Could not stress to me I wasn't grown; 'specially on nights
I brought somethin home to quiet the stomach rumblings"
-Rappin about his shitty childhood

"My demeanor - thirty years my senior
My childhood didn't mean much, only raisin green up"
-Rapping about making money

"Raisin my fingers to critics; raisin my head to the sky
Big I did it - multi before I die (nigga)"
-Rapping about making money

Alright, I stand corrected. Between all the times he raps about his money, he throws a line or two in there about his shitty childhood and about how hard he is. Big difference!
Jay-z is the shittiest rapper alive

A poser that was actually good with Biggie, but when he got shot, he resorted to performing with white boy pop artists, underground rock bands, and soft charcoal reggae musicians. He also performs with Beyonce, which wasn't that good anyway, since all he raps about with her is about his daughter. Was in a feud with Nas, which then ended with Jay-Z being owned on God's Son, which was a diss tape directed towards him, his producers, and his girlfriend-to-be-wife Beyonce. He was so embarrassed apparently that he was angry when he wrote his own diss tape, it fucking sucked monkey cock. Has lately collaborated with Justin Bieber, which proves he sucks even more, as he needs anything to retain his reputation as the wealthiest rap artist in the world. What better way to extort money from 7 year olds? Basically this guy needs to work with more rap artists instead of little spoiled brats, 18 year old wannabes and pimply white boys "from the hood".
Fred: I went to the Jay-Z concert earlier today.

Greg: Really? Did Caitlin force you to?
Fred: Yeah. All he does is sing about a daughter that he's never going to spend time with since he's so fucking rich.
Greg: Amen to that.

He's an overrated rapper but he's not wack .He's a good buisness man (like Puffy)but U can't compare him to neither of the best rapper(2pac,Biggie.NaS,Rakim).He maybe had alot of commercial succes but that doesn't mean a rapper is good.Look at Illmatic not alot of commercial succes but one of the best album.Yeah he switched to a more pop style,but you've got to look a the best of Jay-Z .
There's 2 kind of critics

-He sucks ,he's bad 'he's commercial and bla bla
-He's the f*cking best rapper alive ouhhhhhhhhhhh
4 people who saying he sucks ...Dude stop acting tough and go back play with your barbie
4 Those who say :"HE'S THE FUCKING BEST "Did you listen to another rapper to real legend before saying someone is the best try to listen to everything

My point is he's overrated but he's not bad and I have no problem for putting it in the top 10 (I'm kind of good ) but #1 ...NO
MTV is wrong,Jay-Z is not the best
by A rap fan December 25, 2011
