To me that is staying true to yourself. If that makes me a Stan then eh....
Nah not at all. That guy agreed with someone else that Jay's music has aged badly and then went on to speak about content, subject matter and how he doesn't relate to it.
All you did was take weak shots at Nas to make yourself look even more like a stan for Jay/Nas hater. That's all you did.
What I think your problem is on a topic like this is you can't accept other ppl having a different opinion from you because you have an extreme bias.
Now you can go ahead and defend Jay and come up with any interpretation for why his music has this content and spin it w/e way you like but that's just your view on it. Don't make it true, right, or a fact. You have to deal with that. I can easily say the opposite of what you're saying as far as content. What Jay talks about easily gets him a pass cuz he's talking about what most ppl don't have, pitching the same get rich living the lavish life ****. That is not going to easily garner more negativity. That's just ppl calling out that bull **** as far as the message in his music. What that comes down to is target audience though, just cuz you like it and can relate it does not mean that other Jay fans do, they just might want to be sold a dream.

, I never moved weight and I'm not a millionaire. Its still the best product out IMO
Son which is it then?
What's with this blatant hypocrisy in two different threads?
You relate to Jay's music more to Nas yet you don't relate to Jay's music either? Nas' rap content is less relate-able than Jay-Z's?Edited by Master Zik - 2/4/13 at 7:43pm
