Default Jay-z has the worst rhymes ever

I gotta admit, the production in his tracks are pretty good. But honestly. Someone listen to the lyrics of a JayZ track and then listen to the lyrics of a tupac / eminem thread, and tell me with a straight face that JayZ even approaches tupac / eminem / hell even any other joe rapper.

this guy's lyrics are so bad, he would rhyme with the same exact word like 8 times. Listen to tupac. His flow and beat is so incredible. It's like the background produced beats are actually following his lyrics, not the other way around.

jay-z has dumb down his rhymes through out the years for a reason. i hope you're up on reasonable doubt. his narratives were impecable. his delivery was sylablicly on point. he wrote those rhymes...he doesn't write no more. he knows the different formulas between club hits and street records. tupac and em are dope by no means, but no mc can knock out records out of thin air without writing lyrics like jay-z can. the audience right now would not be able to keep up with vintage jay-z, but if you listen his verses, they are still above the game over these down south one dimention 2 words per minute white gown wearin same style havin clowns...

worst rhymes ever? with that headline, I aint even gonna read what u posted.

Jay is a lyricist... may not be the best, but he definetly aint nowhere near the worst. I see u mentioned eminem... go listen to his verse on "smack that"...
