Clap For Her
Congrats Mac you made it my nigga....don't know where you made it too...but once they say your gay your there.
Juicy J did good on this track but them 2 other niggas sucks!
Jay was likely an influence of Ems because before Em came in the game, Jay was already a HUGE influence on the culture. Jay had the culture talking about private planes, platinum gold, owning business etc... Before Em came in.
Who is BETTER between Jay and Nas? Jay and here's why? BARS.
Now Nas is such a great lyricist thats its difficult for more to see where Jay has the edge on Nas but lets talk quotables. How many verses do people know word for word almost? Its alot, Jay can do damn near a whole show and people will know all the words, no matter how intricate they are. What does this mean? It means there's a CLARITY to Jays lyrics thats more embedded in people's minds the Nas.
It means where Nas would likely switch topics in the same song and go in another direction, Jay is likely to stay on subject and drive an overall point home on a more consistent basis. Punchlines are more emphasized by Jay, entendres are more emphasized then there's RANGE of lyricism as far as song writing goes.
If we talk HITS, Jay is put up more then Nas and these aint just weak lyrical hits, Jay puts up hit records that are lyrical songs as well. Hard Knock Life, 99 Problems, D.O.A, Empire State etc...
Now with Nas imo Jay is gonna get his closest competition but again, BAR for BAR, song for song, concept for concept, flow for flow etc... Jay is gonna come out on top once you really get into who does more of what on a more consistent basis.
I think people were initially turned off about how Jay presented Tidal. The rollout of it was all messed up. Not that I was upset about it or anything but many people were looking at it as Jay (& the artists he recruited for that commercial) being successful artists & yet their still complaining. The pricing was another thing ppl were upset at. A lot of ppl feel like music shouldn't be "exclusive", especially when you can easily get it from other outlets such as: Piratebay. How is exclusive is it? I think that's what people were initially upset about...
