    Why no appreciation for Jay Z.

    Boat dock in front of Hermes picking cotton,
    Silk and fleeces, lay on my Jesus,
    Oh my God, I hope y'all don't get seasick

    Hermes was an Olympian God in Greek mythology. Among his many specialties, (including poetry) Hermes was a God of transitions and boundaries. As discussed by Jay himself, this song explores the transition of a passageway for slave transport into a bed rest of yachting–luxury and excess.

    Hermès is also a prominent French quality goods manufacturer known for their luxury items in perfume, clothing, and home decor. Jay-Z is in the Hermes store picking out clothes (cotton), very expensive clothes at that, while also alluding to the African American slaves who used to work on the cotton fields.

    For students of mythology, the word “fleece” will instantly bring to mind the golden fleece. The hero Jason has to retrieve the golden fleece from the claws of an immense dragon in order to regain his rightful place as ruler. In some versions, the goddess Atalanta travels on Jason’s ship, the Argo, as the only female member of the crew. This ties the mythology back to the mention of Atalanta (the “sailing lady” with “ivory”) in the first line of Frank’s hook.

    Hov mentions Jesus in the next line, a reference to a Jesus piece, but also to the Christian Lord, who is referred to as the lamb of god because he, like a sacrificial lamb, gave his life for the sins of Christian believers.

    Without going into too much depth, there are also a number of secret societies that use the imagery of fleece and wool, including the Order of the Golden Fleece and the Freemasons. Given the many plausible references to secret history in the song

    In order to get to the West cotton picking to produce silk, fleeces and slavery, African american’s ancestors were piled on top of the slave ship called “Jesus”. Jesus was the name of the 1st slave ship to hit the West.

    This is a play on the homophone of sea and see:
    -In a literal sense, with all of these aquatic references, Jay hopes that you don’t become seasick.
    -According to Jay, with his wealth on display in the form of clothes, cards and jewellery, he hopes you that you don’t become jealous of what you see, therefore becoming “see sick”.

    Jay explains the meaning behind the song. “It sounds like a celebration of where we are now on some big yacht, throwing champagne in the water,” he tells Rick Rubin. “But the undertow of the thing is that this is the same water that brought us here originally as slaves, so it has this whole duality and even how we re-write history, the stories we were told about the history of America.”

    In terms of success you have to tip your hat off to him.

    But if you compare his ability with the other GOAT's in terms of music then like Wilf said, he isn't very good.
