  • Reemycks!

    I think HipHopDX is right. YN is dick riding Jay-Z. How? Well…

    1) In XXL, there are like 1000000 Roc ads, clothes, etc etc. Peep the 10th anniversary edit.

    2) Jay-Z was the first to appear on an XXL Cover. And now they covering this American Gangster shit like it’s the biggest thing since the light bulb. shit = Wack, Jay-Z need to sit his ass down, and focus on what matters: Being the best CEO he can be. And I rarely agree with LL COOL J.

  • JustKC

    No matter what they say… YN knows who the TRUE best rapper alive is and know’s about the past. Most of these lames running these sites don’t know anything about the past. They think lil wayne was the 1st rapper to come outta the south. and think the west started with snoop. keep it going patna

  • C. Rob

    its funny how wayne being on a jay z album hurt a lot of these niggaz feelings. its getting harder and harder for them to hate on wayne,the joint is banging, Jay will tell you that himself, AND it was wayne’s own concept, Jay just jumped on it……….

  • Maco

    are you guys retarded? how is he on jayz dick?its a beastie boys song.

  • Casper

    Maco.. it’s the sample used in the Jay-Z/Wayne collab

  • MannyWallace

    A few weeks ago YN said that the coverage would be extensive until the album dropped. The way I see it, he’s just keeping his word.

  • Matt Herbz

    Yeah, that’s the worst song on the album, the most annoying song in hip-hop history since the original. I’m usually feeling my white Beastie niggaz, but in this case, I gots to Fast Forward that shit. Holla…

    I think everybody is tripping.

    Jay-Z’s album is sooo vicious! It’s kind of like Reasonable doubt status. I’m 21, and i can’t listen to all these mixtape rappers. I gotta have an album to listen and roll an L too. This album might be too real for most people. None of these new generation rappers can mess with Jay-Z. All these new rappers rap about cars, money, rims, and how they are the man. I want to listen to some shyt i can relate too. Some real ni66a shyt. I just don’t care for what thses new rappers have to say. i like their beats though. If it wasn’t for their producer or DJ they wouldn’t be nothing. That’s why they have to get T-Pain or Akon to sing on teir songs. And it’s not even their real voice, they use voice boxes…especially T-Pain. I’m not hating cause the songs be club worthy…but just to me, it’s just not what’s up. i hate when i see 12 year old’s with $20 fake gold plated grillz in their mouths. definately not what’s up. Jay-Z is on a whole nother level. Most of ya’ll who hate are just probably childish and simply just need to grow up. Sorry for the long post…but i felt it was necessary…I’m out.

    Shout out Detroit…The Dirty Glove!!!!

    • nappy_pappy

      i had to cosign this shit….its true…jayz has more meaningful rap… it touches u on emotional as well as spiritual levels( well maybe not spiritual) but u know what i mean. and thats wasup another 313 cat in this piece u already know michigan baby we been had our gloves on!
