that he has 11 of them all in different years...i understand if you was talking about someone that did it like 3-4 times but for him to do it with such longevity is a good barometer for how prominent he was and is in the rap game (he's the only solo artist to be able to say this...thats not a coincidence) im not saying us it as a full analysis...but it should take a part
only thing I give Jay credit for relative to this topic is his constant output of music, he dropped an album a year for a decade which i applaud but numbers 1's as a whole for ANY artist i just disregard, the cumulative record sales are already a better measure cuz it captures the prestige of a number 1 and more , it tells the whole story, the bigger picture. I didn't applaud when Ross, Banks, or Diddy grabbed number 1 albums cuz they released on weeks when nothing was out, so it's only keeping it unbiased to disregard Jay's as well, im not saying that means he's not a great artist, he's in my top 5, and there's so many other things i can praise him for but number 1 records as a whole are stupid, 11 PLATINUM albums is something id rather applaud him for which i think he has done or is close to. The number 1 claims is something his marketing team keeps pushing out there to make him seem great relative to soundscan giants such as elvis, michael jackson, the beatles, etc, when realistically he is no where near them.
"10 number albums in a row who better than me? just the beatles.... i crush Elvis in his blue suede shoes"
I'm a much bigger Jay fan than Elvis but i dont sip the bias kool aid, i call it like it is, and how Hov has the audacity to make it seem like this feat matters when being compared to these other guys is beyond me.

To have more Number 1 albums than Elvis Presley is quite impressive and it is a big deal. Your using the "if" factor. If you want to use it then "if" Eminem was black that n*gga would be tech n9ne if you want to use that. He definently would be selling 20 percent of what hes selling now. So if your gonna call a spade call the other a spade its a fact and thats a fact.
Speculative BS. please think about what you just said and then go read my previous posts in this thread and feel free to tell me what else do you see from your crystal ball of certainty.
