Jay had to announce he was retiring to build anticipation for the black album after blueprint 2 was the most anticipated trash of 2002

I know this is a baseless claim but I feel like Jay executed supply and demand strategy for when he retired.

50 cent was blazing and crushing NY rappers at the time and it was only a matter of time before he went after Jay in full force.

Jay retired at the pinnacle of his career (at that point in his life) and thus raised the demand for his music considerably. It was huge when he called it quits that fade to black concert and all that.

Jay takes a few years off drops some side projects (that many questioned him asking if he wasn't retired). All the while if 50 came at Jay he could just use the retirement card.

Comes back in 2006 with Kingdom Come and 50's decline begins a little while later with 2007's Curtis.

I know this is basically a conspiracy with no evidence what so ever, but I often thought that Jay was thinking like this. Not because he was scared of 50 but more because hip hop fans are so fu*king fickle and would just bandwagon 50 on the beef. Typical battle sh*t if you have the crowd on your side it doesn't matter what you say and 50 cent had the crowd in 2003.

I love Uptown Saturday Night, like I really do. But them n*ggas not rapping as smooth as RD Hov. Hov sh*t was lyrical but easy to process and digest. Camp Lo sh*t almost sound cryptic if you not paying attention.

But I like that type of sh*t though.

Hov could’ve never made Luchini and Camp Lo could’ve never made Dead Presidents I or II imo





Same flow but Hov rode the beat waaay better though. That type of sh*t makes a difference

The only reason ja lost fans too. Cuz Ja had just came off a big year!!!!! All that stopped when 50 started dissin him. Cuz then eminem started and so forth so he was just losing all kinda fans from n*ggas picking sides

As good as blood in my eye was, dudes had already chose a side.

n*ggas really tryna make Jay and 50 a thing.

Jay a top 5 rapper and 50's name is barely mentioned at all in top 10's.

50 is an average rapper at best if you're looking at it objectively and not d*ck riding

Jay definitely knew and seen that 50 takeover coming before most of hip hop that’s why he dipped when the time came



And the way g unit were doing there thang this is the moment jay gave up on the og roc nation I.e state prop,freeway cuz he knew their time had passed






And that’s why he took office at def jam and slowly rebuilt roc nation again


Any camel stan sayin he didn’t duck the fade are in straight denial nas already ethered jay by then imagine 50 getting all up on his a*s after that would’ve been queens 2 Brooklyn 0
