Hova’s Sub-Par Verse

So what if Jay came with a sub par verse. Yall should be happy he graced yall with his presence. He don’t owe yall nuthin no more. So what if he used Rick Ross semi simple rhyme pattern to construct his point. So what if you tired of hearin Jeezy and Jay spit together. Def Jam is his movement god dammit and President Carter rides for his cabinet.

One thing I have noticed about his cabinet tho………

Ghostface, Beans, Peedi Peedi, Freeway, Redman, Sam Scarfo, Tru-Life (did I forget any?) are all east coast artists on Def Jam. So far Jay Z has done a Jeezy Remix, Kanye Remix, Bun B song, Ric Ross remix, and Mariah Carey remix with Jeezy (produced by a Southern producer) Wow, 4 South songs, 1 midwest and no remixes for the rappers on his own label from the East….how ironic, The King Of New York…..

Sickamore is right. Tip, Jeezy, and Wayne are the new Jay, Biggie & Nas respectivly. In my Ozone cover story I said the same thing. You fuckin die hard “era critics” who always get stuck in your favorite time period will never admit it but who cares what yall think. Yall were mad when people said Jay-Z was better than Big Daddy Kane.
Just look at this. Whether or not Tip went at Wayne on “I’m Talkin to You”, any real rap fan sat back and imagined what it would be like if those two powerhouses were to Takeover/Ether each other. I mean, real talk, T.I. vs. Wayne is the closest thing to Jay vs. Nas since. Lyrically and monumetally if they were to ever exchange jabs….

And another thing…

Erybody wastin they time dissin snap music needs to shut the fuck up. Shit is for the kids, let em have it…. If snap music is fuckin up hiphop then so is every gun totin crack hustler from the block turnt rapper (which in a way I guess they both are!!!! But didn’t MC Hammer ruin hiphop too… and Puff Daddy?). For every snap song there is a rapper on Smack DVD from the east coast showin his gunz off lookin more like comedy than drama….
Snap Music = Silly Gangster East Coast Rap

The smartest comment in the South vs. East debacle was made by David Banner on Hot 97 Street Soldiers. “Only in hiphop do we divide so someone else can conquer”. You don’t ever hear Rock N Rollers talkin bout “West Coast Rock N Roll is dominatin East Coast Rock N Roll.”.

The shit is dumb. Bring New York back? Where did it go? If the South is enjoying an all time high why does that mean that another coasts relevance is challenged?

I’ll be the first to say, snap music is not my music of choice. I’ve never really supported it on Gangsta Grillz. Check my resume. No disrespect to the artists but that aint my lane. And still, my Down South mixtapes have made they’re way across the country and the world and respected by hoods everywhere.

So maybe someone should tell President Carter to do some songs with some of his East Coast artists to help bring New York back. But I guess they need to make some hits first (does Ghostface “Back Like that” count?)

And what about when New York does make its return? Those of you out there waitin for the next coming, are you also waitin on the South’s downfall?

Keep Dreamin.
