I dont think thats a bad track record at all
Keep it real...Jigga made a career rapping about ignorance.
No hate towards Jay but I question how can one be considered
the greatest when his catolog is filled with ignorance.
The same thing goes for Biggie. Biggie spit a lot of poison
with two albums. The closest Biggie ever came to something positive
is "Juicy" and "Skys The limit"....Other then that Biggie spit
a lot of ignorance as well.. But the focus we're on now is Jay.
Unlike the likes of KRS, Rakim, Nas, Tupac and Scarface,
Jay rarely touched on real issues affecting society. Issues such
as: AIDS and STD's, Drug addiction, Blacks and prison, Child abuse,
Gun violence. All jay has talked about through out his career is himself.
And if he wasn't talking about himself he was rapping about something immature.
and materialistic. Lets take a look at Jays biggest hits:
- "ain't no ***** like the one I got..No one can F$%# u better"
- "***** what? ***** Who?
- "Money cash hoes money cash hoes..What!"
-"Can I get a **** YOU to these *****es from all of my ****** who don't love hoes, they get no dough"
- "Jigga(What's my mother****in name?) Jigga (And who I'm rollin with huh?) My ******.... ****** better get it right, *****es better get it right"
- "Is That your *****?"
- "Big pimpin"
- "Gimme that funk, that sweet, that nasty, that gushi stuff"
- "As we, smoke that La, La, La Memph Bleek still smokin' that
La, La, La Beanie Sigel Desert Eagle the .45 It's the ROC *****
sing our Lulla-Bye"
all of his albums are filled with braggadoccio and materialism,
Here are the only songs from each album where he isn't
bragging about how he's better then u and me and speaks on real issues:
"Regerets" from Reasonable Doubt
"Streets Is watching" from Vol 1
Nothing in Vol 2
Nothin on vol 3
nothing on Roc La Familia ("Where Have You Been" is self centered)
"Mama Loves Me" on Blueprint
"A Ballad for the Fallen Soldier" on BP2
(a double album and only one song)
Nothing on Black Album
"Monority Report" on Kingdom Come
Go check for yaself....jay spit a lot of poison
throuhout his career. Just wanted to point that out.
