JAY-Z IS A HATER
Fist let me start by saying JAY Z is the greatest Rapper Ever, better than Pac, Big, Nas, and Em… Now for the blasphemy – JAY Z IS A FUCKING HATER
Shawn Carter is the biggest hater in rap and has been since 1998, Ask Murder Mase.
CHECK YOUR OWN VIDEO YOU’LL ALWAYS BE NUMBER 2:
When B.I.G was alive Jay was nice, but he didn’t have any hits. Despite help from Mary J, Foxy, and the Notorious one Jay was in Memphis Bleek land. Not because he couldn’t rap, but because he couldn’t figure out radio. Yeah Reasonable Doubt was hot, yeah Vol. 1 is a classic, but them shits ain’t move nobody at the time but New York hip hop dick riders, the same dick riders who believed Mobb Deep was the realist niggas out and that Camp Lo were really from the 1970’s.
On the other hand you had Ma$e and Puff making smash hits that still hold up to this day. What did Jay do? Did he salute a nigga? No he made subliminal diss records about Mason. Nothing wrong with that, Rap is competitive at times. But this nigga Hov had the nerve to go and get Puffy and Lil Kim to give him a Bad Boy song – Remember “I know what boys like”??? Neither does S. Carter. And let’s not talk about the “Sunshine Video”.
POINT: Jay may have been a better lyricist than Ma$e but he couldn’t make a better song even with Puff’s help so he took shots.
I’m not going to get into Nas, even the hardest riding Hova fans have to admit that Jay Z did act like a mini Stan when Nas decided he didn’t want to be on his first two albums. Hov took hating to another level, smashing his baby moms; sneak attacking him at summer jam… all for what? So Nas could finally cave in and become his bff???
POINT: Jay Z wanted New York to love him, so he assassinated its favorite son.
COME HOME WITH ME:
Cam’ron was the best artist on Rocafella records. There is no denying that. For a good two year span of Come Home With me and mixtapes Killa ran that place. Jay Z didn’t like Cam cus he didn’t like Ma$e. He chose State Prop over Dipset because Philly winning wasn’t as hurtful as Harlem winning.
Siegel was never a threat, he was a fucking HENCHMAN. Bleek was a fucking SIDEKICK, and Kanye at that time was just a fucking producer spitting raps about Miracle Whip that would never come out. Cam had taken the ear of the streets, went platinum on a label where only Jay-Z and DJ Clue had gone platinum before. So Jay-Z made sure to snub Cam at every turn.
POINT: Fame and Love is more powerful than Money to S. Carter. Cam made him money, but he would rather give that up than have a nigga from Harlem taking his shine.
DEATH OF AUTO TUNE:
This is Anti Ringtone, death of Auto tune! Tellm’ why you mad son! I mean really, Jay Z is a cranky old man. This nigga should have some hot air balloons and go UP like fucking Pixar with all that bitterness. You know why Jay-Z is mad? Because he hasn’t had a radio hit since like – fuck somebody tell me cus I can’t remember it! Jay is going sell records regardless of Radio, he’s a name. Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, The Eagles. They don’t need a smash hit. They come out tomorrow; they’re going to sell albums.
But Jay doesn’t seem to take that as an honor, he’s mad as FUCK that he can’t do what these lesser talented kids and lames are doing. Fuck I think Jay Z’s still mad over “Occhie Wally”, “Pump It Up”, “Tell Me What You Want From ME” and “Oh Boy”.
Orphan Annie made Jay-Z a household name… don’t argue that.
Ja Rule and Amil are the reason Jay-Z had his other bit hit… don’t argue that.
Timberland, Pherrell, and Kanye were crutches for weak hooks (Imagine Big Pimpn’ over a DJ Premier beat)… dong argue that.
Now who gives a fuck about a hook? I don’t listen to Jay-Z because he’s going to break out the latest dance craze, or the best ad libs and melody. I listen for his 16 bars. But apparently he’s not happy with that, he wants to be on top of the singles charts… let it go Shawn Corey Carter, let it go!
So who is Jay talking about on DOA? Not Tpain cus he shouts him out, not Kanye because he did the beat. Maybe Lil Wayne? He wants the Mixtape Weezy… okay; you’ve done a few songs with the non mixtape Weezy.
Shawn Carter, shit or get off the fucking toilet!!! ROAST LIL’ WAYNE OR SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT IT. ROAST SOULJA BOY OR SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT IT. ROAST EVERYBODY OR LEARN HOW TO DO THE RICKY BOBBY AND… SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT IT.
I know Jay isn’t talking about Ron Brown, so why the fuck don’t he just say what he means on the song? BECAUSE HE’S A HATER. He’s mad about Ma$e, mad about Nas, mad about Joe Budden, Mad at Harlem. Mad that Jim Jones embarrassed him, Mad that State Property and Memphis Bleek suck! Mad that he signed Rihanna to Def Jam and Tierra Marie to Roc-a-fella. Mad that he chose Amil over Foxy, Mad that T.I made his hot line a hot song. Mad that 50 cent exist. Mad that “Show me What you Got little lady” was not this generation’s Penny Lane. Jay is just MAD period.
Now Kanye can cry about “His Big Brother” and forgive him for stealing Coldplay songs but the truth is that Jay-Z is a dickhead. Look how he treated Ye, didn’t even want to buy the man a chain? Who does that? A Hater, that’s who.
So Yeah I’m going to buy Blueprint 3, and praise the lyrical prowess of Hova, but the difference is – I accept that he’s a hater… do you?
