What's the big deal about Jay-Z?
« on: July 01, 2005, 06:40:12 PM »
Don't get me wrong, I like most of the stuff I've heard from the guy(got about 4-5 of his albums), but over time I've read or heard people mention him as a big trend setter and stuff along those lines but haven't really seen it myself. I realise he's much bigger over there than here(Australia) so you guys would be exposed to him a lot more. Also another thing is the praise he gets for his flow, but to me he sounds like he's off beat/key on some tracks? is it because his flow is fairly originally that he gets the praise he does for it?

Jiggaman is just on his victory lap right now, he's just fucking shit up..
Dear Summer & Diamonds remix just proved his greatness, even the Jay-Z haters wishing for a new album now, though he needed the little break because of over-exposure.

dunno, sometimes he comes with some shit thatīs out of this world to only come with some average/wack shit on the next joint. but Jay has been blessed with some of the best production on earth too coz without that i donīt think people would even mention in the same breath as some of the greats. and his subject matter is extremely limited and thatīs prolly the biggest reason why i canīt put him in my top 10 coz heīs been talkin about the exact same shit on every album for 10 years.

def the most overrated figure in hiphop atm. he's just good at choosing producers/beats. but not a uber-mc.

he's off the hook lyrically, his flow is un-matchable, the only reason he's hated on is coz of his topics, he doesnt rap deep, but never the less he still has tight rhymes.

yo i dont see it either man.  I aint got 1 album by dude.  He dont really do anything for me.  Im not saying he's wack, its just his music dont really move me in no kinda way.  You know, the west keeps me gangsta, the bay puts me in a real pimpish mood, the south a get me crunk, and j z just gets me umm.  He got flows though, cant take that from em.  I just think his cocky flow tends to influence allot of his listeners.

Blueprint album is deep. It shows a bigger picture.

It's not just about average streethustlin', it's about hustlin' on all aspects of life.

You're an idiot.  How the fuck is Jay hip hop's greatest when Nas is better than him???  And btw, BIG shits on Jay-z IMO.

lol at people saying Jay aint that good when they dont even have any of his albums...

UWA, seen you on some other forums I think, anyways, Jay is an innovator, look at Best of Both Worlds and MTV Unplugged, dude tries different things, and always drops quality...

I personally dont see the big deal with him either. I have three of his albums (Reasonable Doubt, Blueprint, Black Album), and while he's good for a listen here and there, he doesnt do much for me overall. Definatly one of the most overrated mc's ever IMO.
