I'm going to reiterate my previous statement that Jay-Z is really, really bad.

Well, he is the first rapper to sample lyrics on multiple songs in one album. What are the odds he does NiN's Closer? I mean, Fred D and the boys did it already but who knows.

I'm willing to bet this is a sample/hook and not a "reference", but either way this is bad.

Hov isn't doing himself any favors by releasing these lyrics first. I, however, am still excited.

Yes, his lyrics have definitely dumbed down over time. Reasonable Doubt, Vol 1, 2, 3, and the first Blueprint are classics though. did you not like his recent stuff like Blueprint 3 or Watch the Throne?

Man you guys are dumb.. put any rap song that has come out in the last 2 years on paper and it would look the same..

Edit: f that.. put your favorite bands lyrics down on paper and it would probably look the same..

obviously he's tryi-ng something new here, hopefully it works. the negativity about Jay-Z on this site is laughable though, the fact that he's one of the best rappers of all time is not up for debate

have you actually listened to a jay-z album or are you just making judgements based on these lyrics alone?

I don't understand all the negative feedback in here. These lyrics aren't that bad.
