He won't, Al Sharpton tried to get him to stop and so did Oprah. Al was a confrontational in his approach so Jay basically told him to stfu. On Oprah he justified his reasoning for using the word.
Was it some BS about it being endearing? I liked the album but I still view him as a ****.

So far I think it's one of his better albums, but saying that I mean maybe 6th best. I don't think that's a bad thing though considering RD, BP1, Vol 2, Black Album, and AG. Lyrics could've been better, but I don't think they were terrible or anything. I'll have to sit with it for a while to know where I place it for sure.

Finally got through my mandatory 3 end to end spins and added whip test. As more of a Jay critic rather than a full blown fan, must say this album didn't really blow me away but it is surprisingly good.
To me it is exactly what I would expect from Jay in 2013, especially if you paid attention to BP3 and WTT. It's like the best of those 2 and then sprinkle in Jay's penchant for borrowing contemporary flows and beats from today's up and comers and you get this album.
I would personally give it a 7/10, again not amazing but a good album with some weak spots. If you want substance, this is not the album for you, but I have never listened to Jay for substance. This album is about hearing Jay talk about himself, his life and his greatness over some bangers and he does throw in some jewels for the golden agers too. I mean "Heaven" is basically a Wu homage even rocking that Rza flow too and even using that "Arm Leg Leg Arm Head" (Allah) 5%'er ish that Rza loves to use. "Picasso" and "Nickels and Dimes" would probably round out my 3 fav songs on the album followed quickly by "Oceans" and "Somewhere In America". "BBC" is disappointing but kinda grows on you. Rick Ross should not have been featured but the beat saves that track, wouldn't be surprised if it was actually a Ross track to begin with. The Beyonce song and Tom Ford are probably the weakest tracks for me, but there is no joint I would say is an outright skippable. The biggest flaw for me is more based on my personal sickness of hearing Jay basically talk the same sh*t, but ultimately he does it in an entertaining way.

After taking the time to absorb the album, I give it a solid 8.3/10

At it's best, this album is amazing. There is a dull spot or two (La Familia, Jay-Z Blue)

Also, this album is missing that dynamic cinematic element that we've become accustomed to when it comes to HOV.. The songs are really really good. But are any songs INCREDIBLE?

Also there's nothing proprietary, or game changing about this album.

It is what it is though. A really great hip hop album.
