Does Jay Z Have A Classic Meaningful Single?
 

 
All of the real legends have their meaningful classic songs but i cant think of one for jay z

2pac had several ....Dear Mamma, Shed So Many Tears, Keep Ya Head Up

Biggie had Juicy, Skys The Limit (didnt have many his career wasnt as long)

Nas has The World Is Yours, Nas Is Like, If I Ruled The World...

Eminem has Stan, Sing For The Moment, Like Toy Soldiers, Lose Yourself...

hell jadakiss even has Why

is it just me or is jay z severely lacking in this department?

unsure of what you mean by "meaningful", if we talking about a song with a central meaning, everysong can have a meaning, like "success ft nas", its meaningful as it depicts success in a different light and how his sick of it but then better than not having nothing

but if you talking about "depressing as, joe budden type meaningful songs", theres also a handful

this cant be life, where have you been, song cry, renegade (there is meaning there), meet the parents, december 4th (pretty meaningful to me, its practically his whole upbringing). bleach chair?, lost ones, you must love me, lucky me,

but if you talking about things that will uplift other people and talking bout the world and society and such

i can only think of "minority report" with neyo

im referring to singles such as songs with a video that got radio play hes very limited in that area cuz hes always goin the club route like a bi*ch hes suppose to be a "elite" mc but cant come out with a meaningful or thoughtful single hes overrated trash

I guess this guy is talking about official singles. Both Anything and Hard Knock Life fit the bill. Gotta stop listening to the catchy hooks and listen to the verses. Now neither song is as good as say Juicy or Stan but that wasn't your question. Jay-Z does have classic, meaningful singles.

how many of those songs had fu*kin videos.... @ u we talking about SINGLES ...

Singles are what the artist release with music videos and to radio for airplay. Notice all the songs i mention have videos and were played on the radio and were successful on the charts...

none of the songs u listed were successful on the charts or had videos...except cant knock the hustle...and whats so meaningful about that?


and to you guys mentioning song cry...thats one song out of a 20 year plus career is that all u guys can come up with is a handful of songs out of a 20 plus year career thats fu*kin sad

@ n*ggas naming album joints when TS clearly said singles

I agree with TS, even though I ain't a camel hater.

Dear Momma is one of Pacs signature songs

If I Ruled the World is one of Nas signature songs

Juicy is one of Bigs signature songs


"Lost Ones" or "Song Cry" aint in the top 20 of Jays signature songs

Hard Knock Life is a hip hop classic, but as far as meaningful it ain't no where on the level of those ones we listed for the others

So good observation TS
