    I'd say Jay became the face of rap when he dropped The Black Album. That album was monumental when combined with the MSG show and all the other shit he had going on at that time. I think that's when he solidified his spot...

    Wrong. Do your research. 50 was known on columbia and got dropped... but he still had a HUGE buzz in the streets... if Eminem didn't pick him up somebody else would have.... or 50 would be a huge on an indy level.

    His selling power is (was?) staggering. I know Curtis probably went platinum, but as far as respect in the hip hop community, Jay >>>>>>>>

    And I'm not sold on the fact that Jay marrying Beyonce was a career move.

    I'm just sayin, it's not really news to me anymore to hear 50 (or Game) talkin shit. They do it so much, you start to think they're doing it for publicity. Just to get some attention before, oh, I don't know, an album drops?

    yeah his boost in fame must be because of beyonce.

    not because he's been putting out albums and touring and making moves in the business world and topping Forbes lists and being the best rapper alive.

    It's all Beyonce.
