"But would you rather be underpaid or overrated..."

"Moral victories is for minor league coaches..."


Does a person really have to have that mindset to make the big $$$?

jay-z is the american dream

and no one has any reason to say someone is holding them back

most people duidnt have a upbringing even close to as harsh as jay's was

no reason, america is a country where you can make YOUR dreams come true if you work hard and dont get greedy
and what's your proof and evidence of this?

one guy who was in the right place at the right time with the right voice to write rhymes?

Jay got lucky, and if you don't think it's luck, then there should be a formula anyone can follow and get the exact same results, otherwise, it's luck...

What are your thoughts on arrogant current generation "rappers" from Toronto who don't write their own rhymes or own their own masters?
Arrogance has always been part of rap music. But Jay doesn't make heartfelt music like he used to cause he's so full of himself. As for Drake he makes good music but I can't take him too serious like I used to cause of his ghostwriting.

Jay got lucky,
are you out your squirrel a.ss mind

got lucky???

right place?? right time?? it took jay damn near 15 years to blow, dude was rapping sone the 80's, opened up for kane, tried to go to london because he wasnt popping in america

that sh*t is hard work and perseverance

how dare you take what another man has worked so hard for and say "he got lucky"

when you don't understand something, questions work better than a.ssumptions

NYC in the 90s, Jay rapping today in Kansas would be a whole different story

 Jacc Blacc said:

he did work hard and he did persevere, but that's not why he's where he's at now

Jay is not the only one to work hard and persevere

 Jacc Blacc said:

how dare you make foolish a.ssumptions

once again, unless someone can provide the formula that will get the exact same results as Jay, then it's luck

I don't hate him, I just can't feel him.

He got into that Gwyneth Paltrow/Chris Martin crowd... & started walking around, like a metros3xual paralegal.

Dude is all about money, and politics.

I feel like he wouldn't be caught dead, seen in public hanging with just an everyday n*gga. No matter how real.

I could be wrong. & I know, that money changes things.. whether you want it to, or not.

But I get the feeling that Will Smith, is more ******ish (for lack of a better word), and down to Earth, than Jay.

Bottom line is: Jay may be getting money... but he's a corporate puppet.

He is the machine's rapper. (And a full blown token, tbh.)

People actually stopped checking on him musically awhile ago.

But you wouldn't know that, if you read the papers & magazines.

His loyal fanbase signed up for his music service, to show support.

Come to find out -- you can't even hear his albums on there.

(But ya'll still paying for it. )

That should tell you all you need to know.

But, hey... at least he's still taking ya'lls money.

And exactly how much have I contributed to this bi*ch n*gga's fortune?

Well....let's break it down.....

Record Labels - Nope.

Concert Sales - Again....nope. And, I haven't heard of anyone checking for a Jay Z tour date since like 2005, and that was only because it was right around the time he dropped his last album that was even worth a damn.

Music Streaming and Album Sales - I have not purchased a single album in probably 15 years. And I have NEVER purchased one that was recorded by Jay Z. Why the fu*k are people paying for music? I mean....seriously.....

Clothing and Merchandise - LOL. "Hey, guys! Check out these awesome shoes I'm wearing! They're called S Dots, because they're named after Jay Z, whose real name is Shawn. So they took the first letter from his real name and then put a period after it, but they called the period a "dot" because he once had a song with this ugly bi*ch who looked like a 40 year old heroin addict and sounded something like an emu giving birth where he mentions 'S dot Carter' and then he informs his audience that they are required to try harder, and then he's all like 'competition is.....' and then the ugly bi*ch yells out 'NAAADAAAAAA!!!!' Isn't that cool?" fu*k outta here...

Endorsements - What's he endorse? Antibiotic cream for ringworm? A line of extra large bottles of nasal spray, or tubes of chapstick? Elevator telephones? Some local company that offers camel rides to kids? Nah...

Real Estate - Right...cuz people are so eager to buy a likely already expensive home at an extremely inflated price simply because it's being sold by a dude who once said "38 revolve like the sun round the earth."

Roc-A-Fella Records - The now defunct. I never wrote checks for them.



So that makes for a grand total of.....


*does math in head*

..............

*carries the 1*

..............

Uhh.....nothing. Nothing at all. Not one single penny of mine will ever go into this as*hole's pockets. I'm better than that.
