Jay Z- Rap Genius

Postby djcraig » Fri Sep 06, 2013 2:18 am

A sample of the splendor, articulation and wit from Jay Zs recent "Holy Grail". Mere mortals should not even attempt to duplicate this feat...

<big>[i]Caught up in all these lights and cameras
But look what that shit did to Hammer

God damn it it I like it
bright lights is enticing
But look what it did to Tyson

All that money in one night
30 mill for one fight
But soon as all the money blows, all the pigeons take flight[/i]</big>

See how he rhymed "cameras" with "Hammer"? and "enticing" with "Tyson". Woah!

He includes a few lines borrowed from Nirvana's "Teen Spirit" and they actually help to make the song mildly interesting. Then back to the banal, sing song, 3rd grade rhyming... Way to keep it real, mah Homey!

Ahh Rap music; Allowing the musically untalented to become recording artists since the late 70's.

at least early disco/hip-hop hits like Joe Bataan's Rap O Clap and Sugar Hill Gang were positive and uplifting, without all that anger and negativity...
Grandmaster Flash was also better..

Jay Z he always sucked

True!

I kinda like some very early stuff. I dislike all the rap and hiphop shit around now. All. Every last bit of it. It's purile nonsense that more often than not enforces poor values on people and the world is a poorer place because of it.

I'll second that! if you have to make up entire new words in order to get some loosely rhyming lyrics in your erm; 'songs' (for want of a better word)about hoes and bitches and getting knobs sucked and popping caps in ass's etc AND be massively successful recording artists, then in my view, the entire music industry is fucked and a majority of consumers have failed as humans.

It's always baffled me, specifically since the late 80's and early 90's onslaught of .. onslaught of... hmm 'shit'.. yep - probably the best term for it: 'Shit'.
