Is Jay-Z the most universal rapper to ever come from NYC?
 

 
FYI: Pac doesn't count.

Jay seems to appeal to the most people out of any rapper from NYC: the streets, the suburbs, the casuals, the hipsters, all regions of the USA, people overseas(sort of), etc. He's respected in rap and business alike. He's Beyonce's husband.

The list goes on and on.

Nas is my GOAT and I feel he's better but he doesn't seem to reach people outside rap like Hov does.

Thoughts?

Before I even clicked I knew some dumb sh*t would ask this.

If you really don't know what something is just shut the fu*k up and let others respond.

I’ma go with DMX. That pain he put in his music was felt on every coast. Hov had success because he was able to tap in to the demographics of different coasts and see what was poppin, so he could ride the wave. X had genuine love from everybody because of who he was

Jay knows how to move in a room full of vultures


He knows to move publicly

He knows how to talk


He stays fresh

He stays relevant


He hasn't fallen off lyrically.


He's in tune, no stopping hov.


I don't think he has universal appeal but he makes the right relationships and he'll always be in that spot

Y’all know what this n*gga meant

LL, X, Big, Q-Tip and etc. wasn’t showing love to other regions like Jay Z.... especially back then

he's the most commercially successful NYC artist from his era. he was always more commercial than nas & has more longevity than 50. he does business on the level of puff.
