Pete Rock Is Illmatic.
This Tea Good?
Kanye is rap savior
I'm only getting my hate on because sometimes I feel like a frustrated under achiever.
On top of that Flex didnt play the record first. The song is from the Nutty Professor sdtk so it was already movin. The point is Jay was a very determined person and he had a whole team behind him. Its no way they were gonna just put their whole fate in the decision of one Dj in NY and they didn't put all their eggs into the basket of one song and whether it gets played or not. Jay had a song with Notorious Big also. If he dropped that record in 96? Shit woulda been outta here......
You honestly believe one man determines the whole fate of Jayz and Rocafella? Thats crazy. They were not just drug dealers before that time. Jay was about the drop Reasonable Doubt, the album was ready and Jay was also willing to pay for the singles to be played and Clark Kent also played the record. Not to mention NY city as more then one Dj so even if Flex didn't play the record somebody else would. Can't Knock The Hustle, Dead Presidents, and Feeling It were also ready to go. Not to mention the videos, as well as the features on the album, as well as Jay doing shows all over NY and people showing up to support etc... This ship was gonna sail regardless. Its no way they were just gonna throw the whole album in the trash and give up because of one Dj, thats ridiculous. Plus In My Lifetime was getting played and Dead Presidents was getting played already and the single was selling in stores before Aint No Nigga got played.
Agreed Thank Me Later is better I actually think that's his best work. NWTS I can't agree with..Aside from Maybe the first four tracks it was mediocre to me..
