jay z is more intelligent
Not really, Jay-Z is more so articulate , he's somewhat intelligent too but IMO not more than 50. I've never really listened to a Jay-Z interview and go " Hmmm, He's right, I've never really looked at that way" He's just very well spoken. Dont mistake me for saying he's dumb, he's very smart but not on 50's level. Jay-Z accumulated his wealth doing a bunch of business partnerships and going in on investments that other people proposed to him. Alot of 50's business decisions were things that he spearheaded off his own observations. If you listen to them talk and explain their rationale then it's easy to recognize what I just said.
Too bad that "intelligence" doesn't parlay into music.
Hes making money ONLY because of his initial success. Hes not more intelligent than any other entertainer.
His insight doesn't mean anything if you're not someone who already has money OR if you're not an entertainer.
Listening to 50 Cent talk is basically mental masturbation of things that no one can functionally employ.
Creativity and Intelligence are two separate things, this should be common sense since you can see plenty of people in this world who have alot of one but not the other.
and if you actually recognize all of the business decisions 50 has made and the stuff he's done behind the scenes to get them off the ground then none of what your'e saying makes any sense.
50's intelligence is beneficial to those without money as well, you wont be able to flip as huge a profit because you probably wont have as large an initial investment but alot of shyt is practical shyt that if someone is willing to do the hard work required would benefit off of.
You dont accumulate the type of diversified business portfolio he has by being "lucky".
