    I am most definitely a fan of both.

    Nicki is too damn sexy though.

    Imagine thinking the blueprint and Reasonable doubt aren't nearly perfect albums
    Reasonable Doubt is good but let's not act like it wasn't just another Mafioso type New York CD in an era filled with Mafioso type New York CDs - many of which are better than Reasonable Doubt. A large part of it's 'classic' status came from Jay telling everyone this himself.

    The Blueprint was alright, largely down to Kanye's production.

    For the supposed 'greatest of all time' his discography is filled with shite.

    Then who is the greatest
    I don't know. Rakim is arguably the greatest, as is Ice Cube as is Andre and about ten others.

    Imaging thinking Jay Z isn't the greatest of all time in 2016

    Jay-Z isn't the greatest of all time though. Jay-Z turned himself into a legend in the 00s through self hype when everything started to go a bit shite.
    I don't understand the hype for Jay-Z AT ALL.

    I googled it and people were saying his first album was good.

    It's pure mediocre at best though when I gave it a listen. Beats sucked. His rapping was mediocre and his lyrics ranged from mediocre to average.

    Unless due to the historicity of it it was really good compare to everything else then... Like that's the only justification it has.

    "Mediocre lyrics"

    Welp, did you even listen to Can I live or D'Evils?

    "Beats sucked"

    Ok ye Irv Gotti is such a bad producer, and as for that DJ Premier bloke, well...

    you're trippin, what's an example of a good rap album in your opinion

    Good mafioso rap is hard to find.
    The only two true good mafia rap albums I've ever listened to is OB4CL n RD

    It's a bit like McDonald's - Just because it is the most well known and wealthiest it doesn't mean the product isn't shite.

    Never been a trendsetter, never made a classic, never cared about making one either. Just adapts to contemporary trends to shift as many units as possible.

    He is dull as ****.

    i don't listen to her music often but she's SO adorable, watch her talks with ellen i arguably think she's a good rolemodel too in the message she tries to convey (not as much in her lyrics but more like her personality lol)

    I agree,it reminds me of how good you are a role model to Kaneki.Pretty savage how you met your end .
