    I just hope this whole album doesnt have the content of "Otis". I mean if this is supposed to be a great album that means it will have to have more than just how much money, cars and houses both Jay and Kanye have and how many times they can "buy out the bar".

    • miles b

      naw man thats just not true man. the bottom line is that lyrically em has top 5 talent. he has mastered the multi-syllabic rhyme scheme and if you go back to his first album and infinite, youll see he is extremely lyrical and real and thats why he blew up!

      co-sign , yeah Em is good for a good fix, or rap battle hype, but not really in a legendary sense -not to take anything away from him, he's great, he's very entertaining, but if he were black (tyler the creator, brotha lynch, tech n9ne) his style wouldnt be acknowleged or accepted by the masses like Em(numbers dont lie)...SN: if jay-z were white he would've sold waaayyy more albums than Eminem....truth

    "Let's see, right now, G. Rap, Nas, Eminem," Kool G told SOHH when asked who would be in his dream rap group. "I can't ignore the fact that that boy Eminem is incredible. He's lyrically incredible. Anybody that's ever sat and fronted on this dude's talent is like, come on, man. Stop playing me. I'm a [hip-hop] nemesis and even I can't ignore the dude's talent level. I would say my man Jay-Z. We're talking lyricists right here. I'm talking real heavy weights"-------Kool G Rap. ""Nas did so much in the earlier part of his career that it holds weight," G. Rap added. "Nas and Jay-Z gotta definitely be in there. I think Eminem has shown and proved enough that he deserves a spot in the category of legendary lyricists including myself"-----Kool G Rap. Niggaz stop bitching over Em, dude is a top 5 MC without doubt!

      MANDY 1) Make improvements in grammar and spelling a priority for sure 2) 'Renegade' is the definition of someone getting obliterated on their own track... Jay hasn't spit a verse as good as Em's first verse his entire career [Jay on Young Gs/Dynasty intro is close] 3) The term 'ethered' is now coined for when someone gets crushed in a battle... can you guess why that is? It ain't because Jay won that one 4)Jay got dominated by Esco on Success while at the same time proving himself to be a straight biter by jacking the eminem line to start his first verse... even more Nas subliminally dissed Jay ON HIS OWN TRACK with the 'worst enemies want to be my best friends line' 5) Jay hasn't put out a good album since Black Album... half the emcees on GOOD music can go bar for bar with HOVITO nowadays 'Rip the freeway Shoot through memphis with money bags Stop in Philly order cheesesteak And eat beans fast Then take it back up top Remove the fake king of New York You show off I count off when you sample my voice I rule you'

  • mymomma

    @Lawrence Allure was a banger! who has had a greater influence on the rap game pop culture and social media? JAY. mmlp and sslp were the only classics by em. jay is hands down top 5 dead or alive. he is a black icon, somebody that people aspire to be. he is a philanthropist and makes magazine covers Warren buffet. and in the end of the day he will most likely shit on your favorite rapper. he has destroyed careers (obviously mobb deep but also look at a post-takeover nas. he is ruined) and has created many more (kanye jcole jay elect wale). not to take anything from em he is an amazing artist in his own right, but to compare the two is ridiculous.

      Finally another person that thinks Blueprint is overrated and Jay's only classic is Reasonable Doubt. But back to Jay vs Eminem. The only areas Jay are better in is delivery and flow. Eminem is much better freestyler, battle rapper, diss track writer, more meaningful, creative, better rhymes and wordplay, etc... Wanna go into classics? Jay has Reasonable Doubt, Em has Infinite (most lyrical album ever = instant classic to me, even if the production and delivery isnt that great), SSEP, SSLP, MMLP, and the near clasiscs Eminem Show and Hell the Sequel. But why are we even arguing about this?? The article has nothing to do with Eminem...

    • Kenneth

      MyMomma SOCIAL MEDIA ????? You are an idiot. Em social media exposure is more than the world can handle. The dude is the popular guy on FB(dead or alive), most viewed Rapper on Youtube, most followed rapper on Twitter, His fanbase triples that of Jay...WTF are you saying ?? And how many classics do jay have ? 1(Reasonable doubt), Blueprint is overrated, Black album is just good. personally, i prefer American Gangster to Black Album. Forbes is a business Magazine and Jay is a Business man while Em is not, So the warren Buffet line is BS. Btw, Em makes more magazine covers than Jay. How many Rolling stone covers is Jay on ? Complex ? XXl ? Vibe ? Spin ? Etc...Get your facts right. If you feel Jay destroyed Nas, why did jay join forces with him ? Em Vs Jay is debatable, they are the best around, who is better is clearly based on opinion....Personally, i prefer Em. STFU!!

    • Lawerence

      Your comment is an obvious reflection of how stupid you are. How many classics do jay have ? 2 as well(Reasonable doubt and arguably Blueprint). Em is also a top 5 MC(Best alive). Em is not just an icon, but a voice of a generation, He's music biggest icon at the moment..82nd greatest artist of all times by rolling stone(Jay did not make the top 100), MTV #7 Greatest pop icons of all times(Jay #8), Billboard's artist of the decade(Even with 5years hiatus), BET best rapper of the 21st century, VH1 #1 Hip Hop act of the 2000's and many more which i can't stress. Em is poet, an story teller, unlike jay, who brags about his riches and bite other MC's lyrics and call it homage. Em magazine issues sell 10x more than Jay's own. Em Gave just 50cent who is 10x better than Kanye. btw, Em destroyed careers as well, Benzino ! Jay he is an amazing artist in his own right, but to compare the two is ridiculous !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And why they can talk for an entire group of people (i.e. "We buy rap album bcoz of lyrics not beats.") You're so into lyrics but you can't spell or write for shit.

    Lyrically, BME is definitely Gonna beat the shit out of Watch the Throne, production means nothing folks, Illamtic had awful production, but still the GOAT. We buy rap album bcoz of lyrics not beats. MBDTF had a genius production, but wack and uninspired lyrics ruined it totally !!

      Illmatic had great production apart from 1 or two tracks (One Love, One Time 4 Your Mind,) and they were still alright. And yes Lyrically this won't touch the BME album and the BME album will overall be better most likely, but production does matter. Just not as much as lyrics.

    • dylan

      1)Illmatic did not have awful production. 2)Kanye's MBDTF was in no way filled with awful and uninspired lyrics 3)You got to be fucking kidding me with this fucking bad meets evil shit, i mean really? Okay eminem sounds better on HTS than recovery and it's a return to his shady ego but come on, it sounds fucking terrible with the exception of 3-4 songs on that ep, WTT!!!!!!!

    • Anonymous

      WTT will beat BME only because its an album and not an EP. They actually tried compared to eminem and royce who were just joking around int he studio. if they had actually made an album it would be filled with dre and premier beats with even better lyrics...

    • Anonymous

      You're an idiot.

    • midnighter

      Respect your opinion but please do realize that Illmatic is considered by many esteemed music journalists and fans alike to not only be a classic in terms radically transforming the art of lyricism but also in terms of raising the bar of how sample based production should sound and be used to make a cohesive album.

    I'm starting to feel like DJ Premier is being disrespected here. I'll definitely give it a listen due to Q-Tip, Pete Rock and RZAs involvement in the LP but Lex Luger's "H.A.M." is so terrible that if the other tracks resemble this track whatsoever it'l be complete garbage.

    nas and eminem stans are unbelievable. when jay writes a verse and when he references something else done by another artist he becomes a biter. the other day i was listening to PSA and my brother called him a biter for "HOV. not DOC but similar to the letters no one could do it better". WTF! when he makes a song like hard knock life or empire state of Mind he is called a sell out. if those records are sell outs, then what do you have to say about Biggie's whole carreer? shut up Jigga haters. he's top 5 dead or alive, has 3 classic albums, and will go down as the most successful MC ever. what more can I say?

SSLP and Reasonable Doubt ?Hmm, Two great albums...No idea MMLP>>>Blueprint TES>>>Black Album Collaboration albums Devils Night>>>Best of both Worlds D12 World>>>Unfinished business Nuttin To Do(First BME)>>>> Collision Course The only reason why you feel jay has more good songs is because you listen to him more, and hey, grown folks listen to Em too. As far as who is a better Mc, thats a personally opinion. They are both great Mc's, Jay talks more about himself(Money, cash, hoes, riches, brags) not "larger than life perspective" as you claim, in fact, that should be a vice versal, Em is the one that speaks more about reality !!

      THE NaS/JAY-Z BEEF IS OVER. STOP ARGUING. I don't even like 90% of Jay's post Reasonable Doubt stuff and think NaS is alot better but come on... This is just stupid.

    • comachonvargas

      LSN Who cares about sales and being someone else's boss [and Jay was the Def Jam CEO NOT Nas' boss btw]... look @ CREDIBILITY in the rap game... Nas took the crown of NY with Ether no doubt... Jay was trying to hold back tears when asked if Ether was a hot joint on Hot 97[the very station that blackballed him - check out Angie interview]... Memph bleek told Jay point blank that Nas got him after hearing Ether once... you see that nas/jay interview with Sway where they got asked about Ether/takeover? Jay calls takeover a figure four leglock like he delivered the death blow... then Ether comes up and the conversation immediately ends [Nas calls it a napalm bomb and jay looks uncomfortable as hell] Did Jay no harm? Has J responded directly to another diss since Ether? NO... the old jay would have wrecked some dudes... the post-Ether jay took lumps from cam, jim jones, game, dame, beanie, DMX, prodigy etc... please People say ether is all name-calling... jacking big lyrics? em toasting jay on renegade? jay trying to hop on classic Nas tracks? jay taking the blame for un rivera's stabbing? jay first coming up with foxy and jocking the firm? jay's shady business tactics and disloyalty? MUST BE ALL MADE UP... morons The greatest thing about ether is that it had EXACTLY the effect Nas wanted it to... it shook up Jay and thrashed his ego and he has not been the same emcee ever since Btw... following Ether Jay claimed Nas owed him royalties since he 'brought his career back'. Nas response was 'you going to give me royalties for Takeover? How you going to diss someone and claim they owe you something when you respond? What was I supposed to do roll over and die? YOU HAVE TO LIVE WITH ETHER FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE

    • Lsn22s

      At the time, Nas seemed like he was really goin in on Jay...but in the end, Jay still wins...the Nas diss NEVER even SLIGHTLY affected his sales, popularity or otherwise, hell, he eventually became Nas's BOSS...and Super Ugly was easily the most vicious diss in that battle, Nas cracked jokes but Jay had more REAL shit to say about him...people try to make it seem like Nas killed Jay in that battle, it's soooo NOT the time it was pretty even...I even remember going to a show that year and a couple of artists asked on stage "who do yall think is winning this Jay & Nas battle?" the crowd was slightly in Nas's favor...the two artists on stage were like "Damn, this is the only place we been that sided with Nas on this one"....that was a Red n' Meth show by the's easy to look back at it and say it was a win for Nas, but it was really a David vs. goliath thing...everyone likes to see the underdog win, and Jay was the biggest dog out, so a lot of folks took their dislike for Jay's position at the top and joined it with support for Nas just because Jay was super-mainstream and Nas was kinda falling off at the time....if you listen to all of their disses I think Jay had harder bars by far...I understand a lot of folks love to hate Jay, but in reality Nas did him no harm, he just came back harder than expected so people latched onto the spectacle...sad but true

    • comachonvargas

      DUTCH Nas mostly lacks greatness... you see even though Nas' catalog SHITS on Jay's all day Jay should be considered a legend sure... but really? Nas has 8+ platinum albums, 20 million+ in total albums sold, the greatest hip hop album of all time, 4 classics, greatest diss record ever, probably the most sampled/influential artist ever, I could go on and on And as far as being anticipated... what kind of promotion does Nas have? NONE? What kind of mainstream exposure does he have? BARELY ANY... Jay is constantly striving to stay in the limelight hopping on whatever track he can with whatever rapper/producer is hot at the moment... and Jay owes so much of his career to Kanye it ain't even funny... Blueprint/BP2/Black Album highlights are tracks produced by Kanye, and WTT is almost exclusively Kanye production Hov needs constant promotion and bitchmade trend-hopping to stay relevant... Nas stays in his own lane WITH NO INDUSTRY SUPPORT and has two of the most discussed singles this year MITCH Greatest songs in the beef? 1) Stillmatic freestyle 2) Ether 3) Eye for an eye freestyle HOV got smashed even though Hot97 was blackballin Esco at the time... please

      Look I love eminem and royce but to be honest with you BME was pretty bad by their standards, they used good rhyme patterns and their flow was on point but they talked about utter nonsense most of the album. People need to realize there is alot more to lyrical ability than just good rhyme schemes, you have to be saying something with those rhymes and thats why I already know I would rather listen to WTT than BME

    • Barisua Kenneth Ngbor

      Yeah, lyrically, No one is on Em and Royce's level, but production wise, i think Watch the Throne will be better. 70% of why we buy hip hop albums is because of lyrics not BEAT !!!

The signs are too OBVIOUS! Notice the track called "Welcome to the Jungle." Waka Flocka Flame had a similar line in his verse on the track "Fuck The Club Up." Club rhymes with Rub. My ex girl use to give some damn good back rubs before she left me for my weed dealer. She probably given him hot sensual rubs while getting lifted on some good ass trees now. Now I'm broke, bitchless, and can't buy kush. BITCHless? That's my BITCH?! These facts and flawless research scientifically prove These two only plan to consume your souls so the elites can harness the power of the underground rabid man-eating mole people!

    Damn! only one RZA joint.

  • shane

    Any one else thinking that for this shit to be a so called new "classic" kanye would have to be close to the same level as jay z lyricaly or he'll just b carrying him. And from all the knaye songs i've ever heard he's always been a slightly above average rapper who says funny shit. Like i'm not trying to hate but for it to be as good as it should rather than be on his latest shit jays gonna have to be close to reasonable doubt status(obviously not content wise just overall greatness wise). only reason i expect that is because this cd's been hyped like the miami heat. But meanwhile lyricaly kanye's never been at that level his whole career.

    • bad kid from a good home

      ^^agreed. kanye is def an avg 2 above avg rapper n jay hasnt performed great thru n thru an album since black album...but i think 4 this record 2 be succesful cuz i doubt it will be a 'classic' they both have 2 execute the concepts of the songs excellently n the production has 2 be great...i think the production is gonna be the thing that shines more than the lyrics cuz it did on mdbtf n that is kanyes best produced album in mines n hella people opinions n the sound on wtt will probably just be an extension of that which means great'll def be jay's best collab album if anything n i hope its better than his last few solo's

    looks like livin so italian is off the album...niggaz on that got 2 sit in on the listening session said it was 1 of the best songs played smdh...probably couldnt get sample clearance...i think w/ the production line up n the descriptions ive heard of sum songs n samples that r being used its gonna sound a little like mdtf n maybe tba which r sonicaly 2 great albums...i just hope it aint all beats n theres sum substance in the lyrics not just money clothes n hoes which im sure is the topic on quite a few given the song titles n what weve already heard tmb n ham particularly...their both better than that...all in all its probably gonna be 1 of the better rap albums 2 drop in 2011...all the rest steady getting pushed back...dont compare an ep 2 an album wtt is an album theve been working on 4 months now so it more than likely will be better than hell which was put 2gether in short time i believe if they worked on a lp it wouldve been great n much better than what was released...but thats just me

      no i actually didnt son...thats ur opinion of eminem thats point was the comparisons...u missed that? yes? no?...allow me 2 clarify...i wasnt talking about any artists in particular after i said what i said bout the albums n the 4 artists...u see it now? i was talikg bout the fans who always compare other artists n albums with their narrowminded view of what hiphop is supposed 2 be not letting them do them...never spoke about skills or lack there of...expanding hiphop is necessary n is happening already just like it happen to rock...rock was dying in the 80's n there was different 'genres' of it then til grunge came then n exploded n sold then that died out n alterntive became popular so n so forth..point is let them do what their doing as artists...if u dont like it dont buy it dont even download it illegally support it in no way...other than that dont compare n dont complain...ur opinion is just yours tha entitled 2 mine

    And for all you lame haters saying Hell: The Sequel will be better than this album I'll have you know that this album will include MORE tracks plus it will come in a beautifully designed gold accented case unlike Hell: The Sequel. Another thing this album will do better is the fact that it features two superstar rappers( jay z & kanye) collaborating as opposed to just one(eminem) on Hell the sequel. Nobody knows the other guy Royce 59 whatever his weird name is. Lastly the only good song off Hell the sequel was Lighters! The rest of the songs were unintelligible meaningless fast passed songs.

But I do find funny that Frank Ocean is on track with the words Church and Jesus considering the fact how OFWGKTA attacks Christans and they're all aetheist Lol but it should be amzing 2 hear I just hope they paid attention to Eminem and Royce da 5'9 on their album. watch the throne should be best album of the yr.

    • drPHiL

      Not everyone in OFWGFKTA are athiests Frank ocean believes in god and so does Mike G some other members idk but the rest are athiests but it IS kinda wierd how hes on both songs that are religion related

    • Greg Hunter Jr.

      Isn't that a good thing they Bruno cokehead Mars off the album? He's not good anyway. But anywho I'm tried of ppl hatin on these two sure Jay has put out some lack luster albums and Kanye last twp albums weren't worth the $$ but Jay has the record for most #1 rap albums:11 Made 3 Classic Albums: Black Album, Blueprint 1, and Resonalbe Doubt. And went toe to toe with alot of rappers n no Nas didn't destroy the guy Jay puted a hella of a fight with the take over. Jay is Mount Rushmore with Big,Pac, and Big L. Kanye on the other hand is very well crafted in my opinion. But his personal issues have affected his music badly. But seriously how many of yall brought College Dropout, and Late Registration? @ great albums Kanye isn't goin win the most lyrical rapper award but he's an amazing talent that produces (most copy the way he do it) and raps. So please STOP HATING instead give them the benefit of the doubt because its you all who are still goin to buy the album. N let hate replies begin in 3 2 1

      You all fail because it's music and not worth debating like you're scholars of something. You like Nas? Cool. You like Jay? Cool. Both made hits. Both made shits. Move on, you fucking tweeners. Go do something productive.

    • Mr Flamboyant

      Oh yeah...Shout out to the homie comachonvargas above. He put it the best and I ended up echoing everything he said. The thing that kills me is Jay-Z is the biggest Nas stan/dickrider ever in life. He wanted to be dude. He wanted dude to big up him forever. Then he turned around and dissed him for attention... hell he went and pursued his baby mama for yelling out loud. That's some fag ish truthfully. But why the debate bad..."debate" with who is better between the two is always a mystery to me. It's not even close. Not to take anything away from Jay-Z...he's a definite as far as the hall goes cause he's good at what he does... well what he did originally. Now...the nigga is a great businessman who is overstepping his boundaries in the game on the mic now. Hopefully dude is hungry as Swizz says on this album. But Swizz is a dick rider so...

    • Mr Flamboyant

      LOL at this dumb ass nigga Dutch. Since when is American Gangster considered a classic? Because it came after a damn coaster/weed plate/frisbee known as Kingdom Come? He should have been purged and faced lashes with a scourge and hot iron for dropping that and the rest of the post Black Album bullshit. Street Disciple wasn't a proper double disc album...hell really none released ever are. Jay Z can say the same as well running on us with that double disc full of fillers and trash. One CD and you have a solid album. That ish was doo. Jay Z wanted Nas to be on Reasonable Doubt and damn near every release up to the Blueprint where he dissed him. We all know how that resulted...LOL!!! The title of the song that blazed him became a gatdamn verb. (Damn... you got ETHERED!) Capital P said it best on his Hail Mary freestyle about Jigga... "Nigga we been selling records back when you was suckin Nas' dick to get a verse on your first album"... Boy the number of blind sheep walking the world is pitiful. Illmatic is the GOAT hip hop LP and It Was Written kills a LOT of competition and even all of Jay-Z's albums. Go make up your bed, you stupid nigga.

    • Kill

      Nas when be considered the G.O.A.T. when the time comes...he's better in every aspect than Jay.

      Jay-Z was murdered when Either came out. Nas is lyrically better than Jay-Z, has better albums then Jay-Z, and overall is one of the best, if not the best rapper alive. I like HOV but Nas is 10 times better

    • comachonvargas

      Dutch said: 'does Nas even have a top 25?' I do try to respect differing opinions, but really? You jay stans thought Hov would last forever and with some good reason... he had quite a run for real... but everything post-black album has been average [AG] to sub-par [BP3] to straight weed plate (KC). But Nas? Put Illmatic and It Was Written against any two CDs of any hip hop artist in the history of the game. Nas practically invented the term CLASSIC with those albums... but where was Jay? Oh thats right... he was sampling Nas' voice and giving the firm props while trying to get on ANY Nas record he could And people dreaming that Nas is a legend? Ask Jadakiss, Styles P, eminem, kweli, j electronica, snoop, kanye, FUCK ASK ANYONE... Nas is a GOAT contender for real And you need to get real about Jays catalogue... Vol3/BP2/BP3/Kingdom Come are weak and American Gangster being classic? Please... Jay used the Frank Lucas concept to convince delusional stans like yourself into believing his triple beam pipe dreams... Jay is hanging at bar mitzvahs and doing corny Jamaican accents [Young Forever] while Nas is getting back with Raekwon and Mobb Deep Jay has straight GARBAGE verses on his resume as of late... Monster? So Appalled? HAM? Oh how about i do it for hop hop with Nas and Luda? Listen to that track and tell me who takes it... Luda shits on Jay and Nas calls himself the greatest ever while Jay drops some bullshit half-assed MC Shan impersonation... utter wackness And for the record... Jay is the biggest closet Nas stan of any emcee living... but god knows he would never admit it after GODSON dropped that napalm bomb and the whole ROC was running like roaches

    • Special Ed

      Blah blah blah is all you keep blurting out... Classic this, Top 25 that!! That's your opinion, but you haven't shown how Jay's plethora of songs surpasses Nas' diamonds... In my opinion, Jay does popular music that one can dance to in the club and all that, music that's easy to rap along to, music that's easy to find, and music that's friendly to the ear... Nas challenges you ear, his music is complex and one needs to sit down to understand it... You may even need a dictionary or go back to the history books to get his message... In conclusion, Jay is for the easy-going, relaxed, party-type people who don't want any trouble (this generation's B.I.G), and Nas is the professor, his music teaches you something, it queries everything you ever believed (This genernation's KRS, Chuck D, mixed with some Tupac)... That is my opinion... I love both artists and listen to them both... What I'm trying to tell you is this, stop hating and embrace both artists... You may learn something.. They stopped beefing a long time ago and you still on this???? lol

How niggaz believe he spits the truth are either deaf or brainwashed to believe he's the best just because they live on the west coast. Fuck Pac, that nigga named himself after a satanist (Machiavelli is synonym to evil, check out some of his philosophies). Enough of the YMCMB bullshit too. Just because I don't listen to Pac doesn't mean I like YMCMB or radio rap for that matter. Rhymesayers spit the truth. Also let me spill the truth out on your favorite conspiracy theorist rappers Vinnie Paz, Immortal Technique and Lowkey. All of them are frauds. But that's another story.

      808's & Heartbreaks isnt nothin to brag about either lol its betta than Rebirth but definetly Kanye's worst work..I agree Kanye's the better artist but he's lost a step..Wayne makes so stupid music but still has hard punchlines and always makes hit songs. Ppl r anticipating tha carter 4 as much as Watch the Throne, we'll jus have to see who sells more

    • Anonymous

      REBIRTH, MY NIGGA. REBIRTH. That's all the evidence I need to prove Wayne is shit. "He didn't go hard lyrically." Kanye NEVER has 'gone hard'. When's the last time you've heard him just put on a drum line and went off? NEVER. He crafts stories, not "LIFE'S A BITCH SO I FUCK IT DAILY" line that you consider is 'going hard'. The fact that you're going off of what MTV says makes you that much less credible. Tell you what, go suck off a shotgun till it cums in the back of your throat. How's that for a metaphor?

    • aarontodavis

      I'm not sayin dat Wayne is da better artist than Kanye (cuz he's not), Im sayin right now he's on top..every true Kanye fans knows dat Kanye aint da same rapper dat made great albulms like College Dropout, Late Registration & Graduation..MDTF is a great cd wen it comes to production but as far as lyrics and songs, it's not great. Ye barely went hard on any of his tracks and jus featured like a billion ppl..Lyrically, Wayne's punchlines, flow & metaphors on no ceilings was jus ill..U proly didnt like it cuz u cudnt comprehend his punchlines becuz even other rap artits & MTV (panels) said No Ceilings was mixtape of the year wen it came out

    • illmaticbridge

      @aarontodavis Sorry, but in no way is wayne slightly musical, let alone compared to Ye. Regardless of what you have to say about ye lyrically (and i do think he is superior to wayne in the sense that ye actually has some strung together, thoughtful verses that add up to a complete song, unlike wayne who throws out completly unrelated punchlines), it is simply undebatable who is a more musical artist. Ye is an incredible producer, and the soundscape on mbdtf is surreal and untraditional. and by the way, no ceilings was trash

    • aarontodavis

      MBDTF dropped last yr.Wayne dropped 6 foot 7(if u dnt think dat shows any lyricism or dope flow, u dnt kno wat MURDERING A TRACK REALLY MEANS) end of last year and it blew up dis year..He hopped on Ace Hood's Hustle Hard and look wat big dat record got? hopped on Kelly Rowland's motivation, look how big dat record got? Then he also hopped on I'm on one too (even tho dat song didnt really need him) wen Wayne hops on songs, dey instantly become "commercial hits"...tha carter 4 is prolly the most anticipated albulm of the yr..if u think Wayne aint lyrcial, listen to no ceilings or any of his past mixtapes and da new 1 he's gonna put out

      realest shit i've read in awhile. ppl need to realize in order to really pay homage to the man, they have to tell the truth about him so we can learn from them. i think he would want that bcos he believed in telling it as it is and not sugarcoating stuff. as great as he was he had some faults and i bet if he could do alot of stuff over again, he would do it differently.

    • Anonymous

      Again, now that alot of time has passed, and Tupac is dead, it is so easy to pick apart his legacy, a tradition that often backfires when logic is applied. Yes, Tupac went to a prominent school. No, Tupac was not a gangbanger. Yes, Tupac saw more trouble around Death Row. No, you do not know all of what he went through before that. Yes, he was a political activists. Yes Tupac was an actor, thats a no brainer. No, Tupac was not fake, he was a rapper/entertainer, something alot of your favorited underground punchline rappers cant wrap their heads around.

    • yeeepp

      ^^ co-sign...ppl dont realize pac was just an actor, a very very good actor, but still just an actor...infact thats what made me a fan of his was when i first saw him in JUICE ,not his albums, well except for "Me against the world"(that was a classic), but other than that i liked his movies more than his music, The thing that makes ppl say pac was "real" was because he got shot and lived through it(the first time) but no disrespect to him but those are facts...RIP

Nigga that CD had about 5 good moments on it. The intro. This Can't Be Life. Squeeze 1st. Soon You'll Understand. Daddy Where Have You Been. Yeah... that's a banger all right. BP3 was ass. Kingdom Come. ASS. American Gangster. Half ASS but ASS cause it was depicted as a concept album.

      Guy above: Jay has the best discography? WOW I will concede that RD/Blueprint/Black Album are classics with a few not-so-great tracks here or there... but Vol1 was kinda weak [remember I know what girls like?], vol3 was REAL weak it just got a pass because of big pimpin, blueprint 2 was nothing special at all [Jay still smartin from ether on the title track], Kingdom Come was LAME [no explanation needed], and BP3 was SO overrated [Young Forever J? Really?] Sorry to say but Nas' discography eats Jay's alive, not too mention that Jay's best CD was quite arguably inspired by Illmatic... actually...

      @ Mitch - Youre naming single songs. Im saying they dont release replay worthy ALBUMS. Dark Twisted Fantasy was some metrosexual rhymes about shopping and bullshit I could care less for. Yeah, the production was top notch but the actual songs were forgettable. I listen to everything these guys put out and the only albums I would call classic from these two are Reasonable Doubt, Blueprint, American Gangster, Black Album was almost flawless, College Dropout and Graduation. The rest of their albums are pretty predictable and forgettable.

    • mitch

      My beautiful dark twisted fantasy is a masterpiece ,also you say jay hasnt released a solid album in a long time? every single from Blueprint 3: DOA= grammy , run this town= grammy, empire state of mind= grammy ,on to the next one= grammy ...sounds pretty "solid" to me, maybe not by hip hop standards, but musically/commercially, its a winner. and Watch the throne is gonna be better than both of the albums combined

    The track titles scare me a bit. I support Jay and Ye but the song titles make it seem like all they will be talking about is Money and bitches which is of course OLD ASS NEWS.

      1. If you REALLY listen to both of these guys, you'd know that they have way more to offer lyrically than "money & bitches" 2. As a fan of hip-hop, you should know that the song title does not have anything to do with the quality of the music. When you pre-judge an album based on song titles, you're REALLY reaching for something to hate on

    I wish there were more songs on their, Atleast 14. It's like one song more then a EP. Both guys have more then 12 grammys, both are consitant with platinum sales. The expectations will be high. This should be on a Speaker box/ Love below level.

    haha i like how shady gets all the hate for doing a song with bruno mars and these guys do it and it aint so bad..... its aight tho im a fan of these guys hopefully jay steps his game up tho i kno kanye will be dope after MBDTF

  • Mr Flamboyant

    Man I have a feeling this LP is just gonna be a bunch of delusions of grandeur and wackness. Hope that I'm incorrect. But Jay-Z has been a fail musically since the Black Album (Kingdom Come and Blueprint 3 were supremely wack, American Gangster average as all get out) and Kanye makes overhyped and extreme albums with his best songs omitted from the release (Chain Heavy, Mama's Boyfriend). Late Registration > MBDTF. I just hope it's nice. I'll get it a chance and hope that it's worthy. No words for the cover. It is what it is. Not bad but not good either.

    If yal hate these niggaz so much why do yal bother clicking on the article and then type paragraphs about how much yal hate these niggaz?

    ahahah bruno mars and that bitch beyoncé they should make love together and give birth to a bunch of rats they're like the worth thing that happened to rap with backpacker rappers, skinny jeans trend and that lame fuck david guetta

  • Lsn22s

    Good to see some official info on this, will be a day-one purchase right there...trying to cop that deluxe version myself. I honestly think the cover art is kinda dope, the gold cover with the intricate border design? That makes me think of royal shit like crowns and thrones...I mean, what do you guys want, it's a damn cd would be dope if it was some sort of metal case with a raised design, at least that's what I'm hoping, although metal might be a bit much...

  • nuc

    that album cover looks like the cheap plastic tiles you put behind kitchen sinks,,,,,,

  • Tempoclash

    wow that album cover is rank!

  • Christopher Currie

    they need to reach out to: Big daddy kane, KRS-One, Rakim, slick rick..

    • Jack Skill

      Naw, Kanye & Jay need to hook up with MF DOOM & Madlib/Madvillain, Pete Rock, Edan, Wolf Haley, Hodgy Beats, Q-Tip, Mos Def and Nas.

    i have a question. so all you guys saying they're apart of the illuminati, what's your point? so what do you want ppl to do? rise up and overthrow them? what are you all doing in your lives? how much money are you making? what are you doing to fight this "evil" you all talk about all the time. you say we need to wake up and see the light, ok fine. once we see the light, then what? lmao. niggaz trying to diagnose shit but aren't providing a cure.

    You people who are complaining about Bruno mars...c'mon now I know you know better than that. Bruno Mars and Beyonce are only on the first track. Hmmm I wonder what that means. Its obvious they're only gonna be contributing to the hook. Have you ever heard a singer do anything more on a Kanye track? Besides Brandy maybe. You people are acting like Bruno Mars took over the whole album. Just let Kanye do his thing. He knows what he's doing a lot more than you haters. That's why he's pushing 6 figure whips and you listen to his CD in your corolla

  • The Ice Cold Phenom

    "That's My Bitch" is kinda dope. I'm surprised it didn't make the standard album package.

  • Eddy.

    Pretty poor artwork, I could have done that on Microsoft paint. August 2nd is fine by me though, surely people didn't actually believe the july 4th rumour?

    First of all bad meets evil was solid an had some pretty good moments lyrically..... if history tells me anything watch the throne is going to be legendary!!!!!(if you dont like jay an ye why are you on a page about their upcoming album. i dont understand hating in the first place let alone going out of your way to do so.....)

  • Anonymous

    Sigh people are clueless... NO, Jay and Kanye are not getting the idea from Bad Meets Evil and vice versa. BME was formed in 1999 but announced their EP AFTER the Jay/Kanye. So niether really copied. And to the people calling the BME EP wack.. you don't know hip hop.

  • Kaycee Dike Swizzson Blood


  • The Terminator

    since it seems they're tryna copy Bad Meets Evil, they should name themselves, Fad meets Ego!

    • Siyabonga


    • G

      LOL your a fucking idiot, this is an LP, Bad Meets Evil was some wack side project, Eminem will never compare to Kanye so go kill yourself for comparing the 2 based on a tracklist.

    • lol

      are you fucking serious? this was announced before that shitfest you call "bad meets evil" you fucking stupid stan, go hang yourself

  • bola

    we've been waiting for this shit for this long...and theres only 10 tracks? what the fuck man. 2 dudes like that could easily make a disk with 18-20 songs

    • !

      Whether it's a label decision or not, I think short albums are better, more efficient and there is no place for average songs. I prefer a perfect 10 tracks album than an unequal 15 tracks album.

    • ?

      But we're talking about jay-z, no label is going to tell him what to do

    • Johnathon

      you probably don't know this but most major labels these days won't let you make a album with more than 13 tracks.. Thats the reason albums are so short now and days.

  • Hmmmm

    So many Jay z stans it makes eminem look unpopular on site. Jay z has Been horrible for how many years yet still gets worshipped. I remember listening to him on the carter 3 and Wayne produced some of his worst verses of the album and i thought "Jay will destroy him here" and he produced a equally horrible verse. Also on swagger like us, I hope he enjoyed getting pounded by everyone else on the track. Most overrated MC of all time Jay is.

      LMAO @ Jay being whack. He still goes over your head.

      Lol Jay is so wack now. Its embarassing. RD = Classic Blueprint = great but apart from those.... And people in the comments saying the BME EP was wack?? And then say they're going to look forward to Jay-Z and KANYE? Sigh...

      No he is not, but he sold his soul to the illuminati, those that direct and control the small percentage of the hip hop which you hear on tv and these various other outlets. These artist's receive big promotional and finacial support just so they can hold a dominant influence on society, popular music and culture. Keep the people blind making the young hip hop nation their newest slave.

  • Mu

    You got damn internet nerds need to stop it. Imagine Jay-Z and Ye feeling like they have to copy what Em and Royce do, GTFOH. Here's a thought... what if both projects are both dope??

  • Anonymous

    I love the way this is supposedly copying bad meets evil when it was clearly in the works before bad and evil was even brought up. Hopefully they aren't copying bad meets evil though because it was horrible.

  • coleworld

    judging from these track names theyre all going to be like H.A.M. wtf is this, release some real hip hop, not some young money-like bullshit.

    • nunya

      How many fuckin red bulls you drink before you posted that dumbassness? How in the living mother fuck can you tell they all sound like ham by the name of the tracks? WTF is this Obvious Day at Camp Stupid. So many fuckin retards in here I don't even know what to say.
