I don't understand all these faux ass artists, critics and ppl who think they have an elevated musical palette knockin it for being 'commercial' or 'corporate' just because Jay-Z used his vast resources to promote and get reputable producers. The final product is damn good.

Critics and artists need to differentiate themselves somehow and playing the pure art angle is just one option. I dont agree with that as a criticism but its not a hard motive to understand.

I downloaded and listened to it.

I'm not really feeling it but I was never a Jay-z.

Jay Z isnt with the Illuminati. I think you are listening a bit too deeply in the lyrics.

I could have got a pair of front rows for $390, but passed on it. I dont mind Justin Timberlake, but I wouldnt pay to see him. If it was WTT2 though...

How about lyrical depth? Once you listen to the songs enough times to remember the lyrics it starts to become really one dimensional.
