just cuz u start rapping in the 80's dont make you a good rapper.
but Rakim is one of the greatest
It'd be ridiculous if you sayin Ra' aint a good rapper. He's one of the best to do it.
But you are right, just not if you talkin about Rakim.
Jay-z=recycler of watered down bullshit
Jay-z will make a sub par album just to keep his name afloat(and many of you fagz will say its a great album before listening to it)
Rakim won't sell his soul to Dre's gay ass
maybe Ra is like me and dosen't repect the game anymore
too many psuedo hip-hoppers now who don't even know wtf there talkin about....
Ra signed with dre and hopped on a pop single with one of Dre's artists, but then he left just cause his album got shelved for too long
what the fuck is you talkin about
^ yo what's the single called?
^that joint with Truth Hurts
Addiction or Addicted or some shit like that.
some of y'all dudes are in denial
^^ very tru
I think the real thing holding Ra back is fear of failure, both in quality and sales. There has to be a ton of rap labels, commercial and independent, that would be honored to release his album.
Why we gotta be in denial?
Because we're not elitists who think only one style of rap from one period is dope?
word, i can feel that.
Oh really Namor so please tell me what Jay-Z albums have you listened to again?
"oh well uh, I never um really listened to any"
Anybody who can even hate on Jay one bit IMO is full of shit. If you can honestly sit here and tell me in depth which albums you listened to and what you don't like then I won't think you're full of shit. Until then you're just as guilty for saying albums suck that you never listened to fucking hypocrite.
wtf are you talking about?
Niggas in denial cuz they acting like their favorite rapper aint about money, when in reality its the opposite.
Quit responding to me dude. You're old, I understand why you like that garbage shit, cuz you grew up when it was hot. I get it. I dont care what you like. You can like whatever.
My problem is with people that act like young'ns should like it. Or that todays music is inferior to that shit.
ive listneed to all jay-z albums
and people are saying he never sold out??? he even admits he doumbed his shir down after rd.
y'all need to define selling out to me.
he came in the game talking about money, so he did what he needed to do to get more of it.
anotha reason jayz makes albumz instead of rakim is cuz shit alwayz getz better....i.e...jordan=kobe
Jayz throughout his career really is damn good though....when i was younger i kind of hated on him with the mainstream and everything
but their was a few songs that i thought got way to much credit(like girls,girls,girls,a few songs like that i hated) but overall Ra had his days where he helped influence such as Nas,so both had their best days...
theirs a lot worse rappers than Jay-Z though thats for sure....
The fear of failure doesnt let him make albums
