Do people even listen to Jay's music like that? Jay's nice but I listen to his albums twice and never touch them again. I can never understand why he gets praised like he really influenced people
im a fan of both and I see it like this...
Jay has no doubt influenced a generation of rappers...content, flow, style...even strategy (word to drake not beefing). He literally laid down a blueprint to success in the rap game and rappers have been following it since
Nas influenced a generation of kids to BECOME rappers
fine, but key, difference
