If you don't accept that Jay and Em are great rappers then you are the idiot and youngster. They aren't even in my personal top five too.
is that your opinion? I'm an Eminem fan since Infinite...before you even knew who he was, when it was released on cassette tape...Jay-Z is the most overrated rapper in hip hop...the ONLY reason people even flock to him is because of his longevity and seniority. Younger rappers put him on a pedestal because of how long he has been in the game and his pull with label heads and his BUSINESS sense. So they try to get that Jay co-sign and "it's cool" to like Jay because of that. Hell, Joe Budden is a better rapper than Jay...so is Common, Mos Def, Black Thought etc. Yea he puts out music consistently, but that doesnt make what he says "great". It makes it catchy. Eminem, yes he WAS dope...but his time has come and gone. If YOU think he still spits with the same passion as before then YOU my friend are the "idiot and youngster". There are plenty of rappers who dont have that platform who are much better all around rappers than both of these dudes, only reason this is a debate is because Jay and Em have that platform, so that makes them better by default in the average persons eyes. I never said they were wack...because they both have something unique about them in a way...Im mainly saying that people d!ckride ANYTHING these 2 put out. Jay spit a mediocre a.ss verse and people are over here hyping it up like its some incredible magical magnificent verse lol
