Jay-Z Then and Now...
« on: January 14, 2007, 12:01:18 PM »
I just wanted to make sure everybody knows how wack Jiggaman has gotten, so I threw this together:

Original Flavor featuring Jay-Z "Can I Get Open".  Jay has the third verse and absolutely DESTROYS it.  Circa 93-94

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/yLC7ZcSTzag" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/yLC7ZcSTzag</a>

Jay-Z "Show Me What You Got".  God this shit is corny.  Nice fuckin hook jiggaman.  Circa 06-07

That Original Flavor track is dope. I have 2 Jaz albums with Jay-Z on them circa 89-91 which are great. His flow used to be just incredible. Now i can barely listen to him.

Damn, never knew that Original Flavour track had a video.Jay really MURDERS it.

And I was just thinking the same thing 15 minutes ago.Watching the Dead Presidents video on youtube, I scrolled down and saw the "Show ME What You Got" one.I was like WTF, is that really the same person?That's some "Kurupt falling off" type of shit

^  didnt he first appear on the Hot Boys album in like 97?

but yea Lil Wayne is a completely different rapper than he was when he was a lot younger



as for Jay-Z, I have listened to his album a fair amount it's just blah, absolutely saying nothing

I'd rather listen to Kurupt

I'm still probs one of the only ones on this forum who thinks this way...

Anyway, good hook up with the old school vid Jrome :D Jay DID kill it, it's the shit when i hear nigga'z spit fast and you can understand them, i was sleeping on him those years lol.

Show me what you got, i still like it, the hook appeals to me big time, the vid for me just added to it alot better, he looked better in the 90's though.

Everyones best era was probably the 90's, doggystyle still tops blue carpet treatment, peeps banging the chronic, easy e, NWA, etc. Artists/rappers were at their high point around then except for one or two who finish it now like lil' wayne.

Hova's still ite to me, he just lost a bit of the flame but he got it still just about.

To each his own man.  But yeah that was Jays thing back then - to spit as fast as possible but still articulate to where you could hear everything that he said clearly.  He was dope back then.

Lil Wayne and B.G. first showed up in a group in 1993 on the album B.G.'z- True Story. Wayne was named Baby D and B.G. was Lil Doogie. B.G. had more solo songs on the album and took over the name. When the cd was rereleased in 1999 it was labeled as a B.G. cd and the 'z was photoshopped out.

was jay z part of the group og flavor cause the music video channel didn't credit him...


damn, i didn't know he was doin' stuff that long ago. that verse is sick.can someone upload some of the 80's/90's stuff of his?

that showme what you got song is 5 times better than for example "can i get a" shit like that is garbage.

Jay-z's flow was untouchable back when reasonable doubt and vol. 1 were released...he even shined well on hard knock life...and while i think his flow has fallen off a lot...i still enjoy it...his lyrics really aren't a lot different...except now he has a few more radio joints...

but no doubt about it...i still get goosebumps listening to vol. 1....and i don't get that feeling listening to kingdom come...its a good album IMO...but it doesn't showcase jays talent...understandable though...he's a lot older now

age really shouldn't matter. Look at rock. there shouldn't be anything rock can do that rap can't. they're certaily both valid artforms in every respect.

jay-z puts out tracks in or around his album for niggaz like you who think because of a few crossover tracks he's lost it

listen to :

dear summer
ignorant shit
my first song
minority report
44 fours
corporate takover

then tell us he's lost it

don't sleep on these tracks
