Jay-Z Says He's On Lil Wayne's Level, "..To Still Be Able To Compete At My Age, That's Rarefied Air"
 

 
Jay-Z has explained why retirement talk is nothing more than gossip and how he is still competing at the same pace as artists like Lil Wayne in the new Rolling Stone issue.

Despite being 40 years-old, Young Hov says his competitive nature has not slowed down.

"One of the reasons I wanted to make Blueprint 3 was because of the challenge," Jay told the magazine in a cover story out this week. "We've seen people like LL [Cool J] have longevity, and we respect the heritage of what he's done, but it's not like, right now, he's competing on the same level as Lil Wayne. So for me to still be able to compete at that level at my age, that's rarefied air. It's never been done. I think the problem with people, as they start to mature, they say, 'Rap is a young man's game,' and they keep trying to make young songs. But you don't know the slang -- it changes every day. You can visit the topic, but these young kids live it every day, and you're just visiting. So you're trying to be something you're not, and the audience doesn't buy into that. And people wonder why. 'I made a great Southern bounce song!' You're from New York, and you're 70! Why are you bouncing?"

Sean and Marshall are the best period living right now you can't touch either one's track record Album for Album both have elevated to that next level so to say retire for either one of them would be a joke and an injustice to Hip Hop right now

Didnt read the whole article but from what i read....Yall boys focusing in on the WRONG THINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jay Z has always understood rap isnt all about what you are saying. Its about reaching people. For a 40year old man to still be reaching the scope that he does is phenomenal. He is still one of the most popular rappers on earth that itself is RARE! Besides die hard hiphop heads who checking for the new KRS One and Rakim? Most mainstream listeners dont know who them cats are! I bet them cats can still put down some magnificent verses but you aint checking for them. Mainstream hiphop is all about being trendy. And for JayZ to still be big is a testament to his ability to compete and reinvent himself into a marketable product that people like and support.

He is not a business man..he is a BUSINESS, mann!
