American Express releases some official footage of Jay-Z‘s recent Carnegie Hall show. The most recent released clip is Hov performing “U Dont Know,” and te video below that is “Public Service Announcement.”
lol I remember poppin in black album
Imma show u dudes what i do to protect this, shoot at you actors like movie directors
I knew from the begginging it was jays best album and an undoubtable classic
Wack shit. Jayz is alright, but people on here be riding him like his one of the greats.For one he has very weak lyrics and really doesn’t have the emotion of a
2Pac to make up for the lack of lyrical talent. I really don’t think he
is necessarily overrated because he did put out good material, but then
again with the production he had I think any above average rapper would
be on the GOAT list. But despite all of that, these lines explain it
“If skills sold, truth be told, I’d probably be lyrically Talib Kweli
Truthfully, I wanna rhyme like Common Sense
(But I did five Mil)
I ain’t been rhyming like Common since”
That is why anyone in Hip-Hop should lose all respect for him as an
artist. You don’t sellout first of all, and second of all if you do
sellout don’t fukking admit that shyt. Same with biting lyrics and all
You know you fukced up when you admitted to biting lyrics, flows, styles, and selling out, all on the same song.
His lyrics are very good compared to other artists in the mainstream
media right now HOWEVER when you listen to his albums they do start to
run together and things sound the same throughout. There are people who
feel he is overrated because there are so many emcees that deserve
limelight and don’t get it. I can think of several emcees with powerful
wordplay and production that don’t get the credit they deserve. Bavitz
is one helluvah emcee and he gets harped on for being “weird” but dude
has better wordplay than Jay.
It’s pretty much a preferential thing though. I prefer metaphoric lyricism over simple word play
Plus everyone knows he will never be as good as Talib, Common, Big Daddy
Kane, or Biggie Smalls, so I don’t even know why he would front, like
he’s talent wise, on the same level in that song.
Lol I see what your saying.. But the lines right before that explain it..
” I dumbed down for my
Audience n double my dollars
They criticize me for it yet they all yell holla”
wooow this was lame as fuck. It looks like Hov came from the hood, to the richer society but they dont know how to bump heads to rap shit and and i dont know, just watch this wack shit and u know what I m saying lol laaaame. I dont like Hov but really, music like this needs to be in an underground club full of niggas, baggys, timbs and beanies on, bump their head and shit, now am saying.. and all u see is the crowd going up and down bumping to ur shit.
