look up any word, like pussy:
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

A person that took a great Art and teamed up with overzealous corporations, spunned from the deregulation act of 1996 and bleached it negatively. Blasphemous as they come, like all that are vile; brags about his talent as a rapper, MC though he is not. Very good rapper none the less that needs to respect true legends and artists. The other reason aswell as P diddy why Hiphop has disappeared, today being emulated by pop Hip pop, mostly from the south and a little New York aswell.
Jay Z is like Britney spears who is getting fame over Jill scott and Celine Deon. The last two mentioned artists are true legends.

A poor excuse for a rapper. An uneducated drug dealer turned music ho' with poor rhythm and rhyme skills.
See any Hip Hop "Artist"

Went from riding Nas's dick to saying he wasn't shit, then breaking down on the radio from ether to Blueprint 2 to The Black Album to saying he was 'retiring' to going on tour with a child molester
Fiesta, fiesta.... molesta, molesta... confessa, confessa...
