When Dmx and Jay z were in competition from 98 to 2000, Dmx was k!lling that n*gga all across the boards. It wasn't until Dmx started doing them exit wound movies and slacking on his rap sh-t that Jay z was really looked at as number 1. It's not like Hov rose up, X just fell off, and Jay stayed afloat. But if Dmx would have stayed on top of his game, Jay wouldn't be talked about as much, and Dmx would likely been looked at as the Goat. Not that it matters, I'm just a x fan, and think this generation doesn't really give him the respect he deserves. If you got Biggie in your top 10, I think Dmx should be right up there somewhere

Crazy to think about that now. X was huge back then, so much hype around him. At that time I feel like Jay was looked at as basically being just another rapper while X brought something new.

True to an extent
Jay had his own little niche. He wasn't as aggressive as X was. You gotta give Jay credit for staying clever on the mic and keeping the hustler image intact. Other than Nas and maybe Big Pun, he was the only NYC threat to DMX. We knew one of them would eventually take over.

though I think Jay is the best overall, if you follow his career, he always copied someone else sh*t. JAy didnt bring nothing new to rap.

I was listening to Vol. 2 the other day and it blows my mind that when that album dropped in 1998, DMX was THE ONLY ARTIST EVER TO HAVE TWO ALBUMS DEBUT AT NUMBER 1 IN THE SAME YEAR.

HE EVENTUALLY BECAME THE FIRST ARTIST TO HAVE HIS FIRST 5 ALBUMS REACH NUMBER 1 IN MUSIC HISTORY.

Yeah. That's in caps because n*ggas underestimate just how big DMX was.

Jay was Scottie Pippen? So was the rest of the rap game.

A couple labels beg to differ.

I always felt like Jay could rap (obviously) but that he was almost generic in a way, like there wasn't anything that really stuck out about him to me. In a sense I think that's kinda why he made it so far in the end, he took a somewhat safer route, just played the middle, talked about regular street sh*t but didn't get too extreme, had skills but didn't go over people's heads, good flow, etc.

I remember Reasonable Doubt dropping (I was going into 7th grade I think) and I remember when all his other sh*t up to the Blueprint dropped but I don't remember any of them having the type of impact at the time that they dropped as X did.

X took sh*t to an extreme, but the thing is I don't think that all that yelling and barking and sh*t could have resulted in the kind of longevity that Jay saw. Jay was always way smoother with his delivery so I think over time it could appeal to a soft-ass demographic in a way that X couldn't.

Which album dropped in June of 98, went No. 1, and eventually went 4x platinum?

Which album dropped at the end of 98 at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 and went on to go 4x platinum by the end of 99?

This is a hard one.

And they had to rearrange the line up, because Dmx's performance was so much better than Jay z's, that Jay couldn't even perform after X. Jay admitted this on several occasions

truth
i was going to 10th grade when RDoubt dropped. Jay never had a crazy buzz nor wasnt considered a heavyweight until Vol.2 dropped. so when he said "who's the best emcee Biggie, Jayz or Nas" me at 15/16 and my brother peers 10 years plus older all looked puzzled.

tbt, if nas was out there, the game could of been his for some time ESP after Pac/Big died. there was a void in 97 for East coast after big died. Jay tried with vol.1, he didnt hit. He struck gold(figure of speech)with vol 2. NAs took a break that k!lled him from 96 to 99 only dropping the lackluster The Firm.

Jay is smart. he rode waves. & correct. How long can a mofo yell on every song & expect longetivity
