    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.

    Rakim=innovater

    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

    Exactly.

    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?

    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.

    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....
