If his lyrics are 2.5 out a 5. Then you are saying that 98% of the rap game are 1 out of 5.
Would I be wrong in saying that though? Rap is pretty much dead. Doesn't help that artists of Jay calibur are getting lazy on the mic and letting beats carry them. Jay doesn't owe us much Hes a legend regardless but doesn't mean he can talk about being richer than every1 on every song and rap about the same sh*t with no creativity it gets old. No reason I should be able to easily guess what Jayz is gonna rap about on each album.

had my post said "I don't understand the lyrics to Picasso, can anybody help me out?" that would have been an excellent reply.
It's alright, I forgive your ignorance.

stacks ftw

knowing the voice and spotlight he gets with each release its upsetting to hear how shallow and uncreative he has chosen to be.

im not really expecting rappers in their 40s to do mind blowing sh!t. im damn sure not listening to e40 who is pushing 50 for that

who is really doing more than just coasting in their lane who are 40+? you basically get what you get with them. at this point im just hoping they have an ok/good project and i think jay-z did that on here

and nas turns 40 in a couple of months

i wouldn't give the production a 5/5. more like a 4/5. part II sounded like it shoulda been on a beyonce album. bbc sounded like a n.e.r.d throwaway.

i just got the vibe throughout that jay was tryna emulate a rick ross album. from the cadence on certain songs to the beat selection.

this is probably my second least favorite album from him next to kingdom come.

people who are saying this is better than american gangster are idiots. that album was pretty soilid throughout. had some mishaps, but also some really standout joints. this one doesn't have a single song that sticks out more than another.

if i had to rank all jay's albums, my list looks like this...

reasonable doubt
the blueprint
the black album
dynasty album (if people consider this a jay solo effort)
american gangster
vol 2
blueprint 3
blueprint 2
vol 1
vol 3
mghg
kingdom come


mchg is a 6.5/10 in my eyes. some of jay's lyrics are corny as sh*t on this. the rick ross swagger jacking on some songs also annoys me.
Still a pretty good beat to me. Sounds like a combo of the ti and robin thicke song and in the wind by trick daddy and ceelo. I loved all the beats for the most part some exceptional enough to carry the others. BP3 is toO high on your list to me. I cant put that over volume 1 at all but its your opinion. MGHG is probably Jays third least worst album with BP3 and KC beating it out in the bad category.

People like AG cause he was spittin. MCHG is a better album, but Jays flow was a lot smoother, and his bars were sharper on AG.
I can agree with that. Thats the one thing i liked about AG but, the production was jus not there. It did have one of my fav jay joints on it tho. Ignorant sh*t>>>>

n*ggaz gotta pay attention to this MCHG tho. To say he wasnt spittin is jus a lie. Alotta quotables on this. He did step down a notch lyrically but, he still spittin. I fu*k wit this because it just reminds me of what jay used to be. I remember a time were i could never pick a fav song on a jay album before kingdom come. My favorite would change everyday. This is the feeling im getting with this. "Picasso Baby," was my fav on first listen. Now, "Nickle & Dimes is.He delivered. fu*kahater!
