my favorite part of the song, and probably the album...that sh*t was a call to arms for black people real talk
that verse put the battery on my back.

i asked because tracks like "murder for excellence", "new day"...etc. don't really grasp you in the first listen. to appreciate them you gotta really listen .

jay uses dominos to explain class and race hierarchy. the black spots are called pips. the person with the least amount of pips has the HIGHER score. this is how you win

the higher hov rises in status and wealth, the fewer blacks he sees until he is almost totally surrounded by white (people)

hince: "i'm all dressed up with no where to go" (the whites on his level don't want his blackass, but his black lower-level friends don't want his rich a.ss) hov is waiting for more of us (black people) to get to his level of success to celebrate w/ him. 'till then hes alone.

you one of those dudes who think its a classic huh
Not at all..the album came out a week ago...how can anyone call it a classic.


It seems like your review of the album was pre-determined before you even listened to it
You have some type of biased of these two artist in which clouded your judgement of the album musically.

ex...murder to excellence...welcome to the jungle...lift off..

your preception of jay's lyrics in murder to excellence is different from mines...thats part of the reason for me disagreeing. I can disagree right?

and why base your overall score of the album by judging each song individually? How does each song mesh together as a whole should play a part too. transitions? flow of the album?
Your review is tunnel vision.

For me (out of 5):

No Church in the Wild (ft. Frank Ocean) = 4.0
Lift Off (ft. Beyoncé) = 1.0
n*ggas in Paris = 2.0
Otis (ft. Otis Redding) = 4.0
Gotta Have It = 3.0
New Day = 2.5
That's My bi*ch = 4.5
Welcome to the Jungle = 3.5
Who Gon Stop Me = 2.0
murder to Excellence = 4.0
Made In America (ft. Frank Ocean) = 2.5
Why I Love You (ft. Mr Hudson) = 1.0
Illest Motherfu*ker Alive = 2.0
H*A*M = 1.5
Primetime = 3.5
The Joy (ft. Curtis Mayfield) = 3.5

Overall... It's a mixed bag for me. So, its a 3.0 or a 3.5...

LOL I am trying to figure out what pauses this n*gga talking about. Some of these n*ggas can't be posting on hip hop boards b/c they hearing is sh*t. Jay's flow was smooth and lyrically...the way he reflected on BIG, Pac, MJ and Pimp C in the second verse is beyond impressive. The only problem with the song is Swizz. The beat is good enough...but him getting on the track was not needed. I think this n*gga must Jay's flow on the last verse of "Who Gon Stop Me" confused with "Welcome to the Jungle".

Otis yes. Who Gon Stop Me...omg get this n*gga an oxygen tank. But not in Welcome to the Jungle man. You gotta have the two songs mixed up.

Only song that is unbearable is Lift Off and the beat is good just everything else is garbage. I'm a 30 yr old White male and I APPROVE! Such a MUSICAL cd I understand why some don't like it. Its actually musically and has soul and feeling and the swag and ignance is untouchable I love that! Hate whatever u want but u know its a great cd!

stopped reading whenu were a 15yr old f*ggot! Deluxe edition really makes it a great cd. Jigga does soo many subliminal disses its funny. I don't expect u young f*gs to appreciate this cd. For all the old heads who honestly thought we would ever get Bad Meets Evil and The zthrone in the same yr?
