    Could you be any more up your own ass freebass?

    Even nightmare doesnt love the smell of his own shit as much as you.

    I can see people giving it 3/5 if its to thier taste but this album is wack, afew decent tracks mainly due to the beats and thats about it. If anyone thinks this is 4/5 was every jay album before 2000 6/5?

    Real talk, the bar is so pathetically low now.

    Seriously someone listen to RD or any of jay z's decent albums then listen to this and tell me its deserves anything more than 2/5...



    Wtf is this shit? Would of been a decent track for a justin timberlake album or something....that first verse is terrible. The 2nd is better than the first atleast...

    still haven't peeped yet, but RD, bp1, BP2 (BP2, diamonds are forever, gunz & rozes, bitch, and at least 5 more very good songs), Black album, Vol 1, American gangster, and even kingdom come(given lost ones, the prelude, Hollywood for even just those few) and BP3( for just empire state and run this or whatever)...... That is at least 2 amazing albums, BP2 would be amazing if it was a best of both discs, a few great albums in Black album American gangster and and some that are more arguably wherever on the spectrum......take a 10 year cross section of work for any artist to juxtapose with anothers, but it has to be the same career periods, not the same time decade wise.....Can't call kanye wack cuz he didn't put out anything at all before jay made a couple classic albums.....

    i agree kingdom come is not his worst thats why i said id rather listen to that than this even though i gave this one a 3/5. and actually this one is probably closer to a 2/5 while kingdom come is the 3/5

    Bro I plainly said I haven't listened to it yet and I simply read your comments and all others up till the post i quoted.....I think you need to be a little more mindful of what I actually say, and what you do.....3/5 from your own post is something that is not wack man....I was really just saying you listened to it before me and I will see where your opinion lands in terms of where mine does.....I don't lie about my taste bro

    i am not saying kanye is better at rhyming or technically or anything. But overall.

    -is both rapper and producer. Can make great songs that he is 100% responsible for
    -ju st the fact that he produced his own albums (with some help). Not to mention he deserves half the credit for Blueprint's greatness.Also Common's Be, and many songs for others.
    -better ratio of good songs to bad ones
    -better artist, is more creative and less formulaic
    -brings other artists together to make hits that probably never would have collaborated otherwise.
    -more entertaining.
    -havent seen either of them live but i bet kanye puts on a better show as well
    -speaks his mind, says an does things others may not agree with, not afraid to take risks.

    dude does not deserve half the credit for blueprint, he just made a few of the beats that turned into great songs, he provided some great backdrops but just blaze, bink, and em did too.....BE, I will forever not say that this album/sound musically is largely dilla and common wanting kanye's beats to sound like dilla's on this album.....I always saw that as disrespectful, but I have gotten less vocal about it over the years....

    I am not fond of the brings artists together view, but jay brought kanye on star ship, so I would see that being a dead end argument even though they are not saying the same thing really....

    I remember how easy it is to diverge a topic off with arguments like this one, but the rest seems like all opinion and maybe most of it is too....except the BP and BE shit.....

    Yea chances are good that someone who was aware of Kanye's sound back then, but didn't check BP production credits would have mistaken Ye beats for Bink! and Just Blaze.

    I remember back then I thought for SURE, Girls Girls Girls was Kanye.

    Kanye may be more creative musically than Jay, but Jay is by far the better artist. 6 albums in and Ye still has amateur delivery. That's just not acceptable if you wanna be compared to Hov.
