    "Two #1 platinum albums weren't given to him. He earned it. Being a hater significantly reduces the chances Drake will perform at your next birthday party." Typical Drake stan/dickrider response. Besides, Birdman bought half of the albums.

  • G.O.O.D. Music...

    ...is WINNING!

  • DavidDanielz

    Lets get this clear. Jay is the King of HipHop. He doesn't need anyone to make himself relevant. Everyone that goes into the game wants to do what he has done and is doing. Some just want to be respected like him, others want to have the fame that he has, and others want to be as rich as he is. Regardless, he is the one artist others aspire to be. You want to say some corny bs about random things to bring his star power down then by all means knock yourself out buddy. Your favorite rapper will never be successful as Jay point blank.

    • Anonymous

      Look @ this loser David calling Jay king of hiphop. Because he is rich? Last time I checked, Puffy is richer than him and I can name at least 10 rappers that is lyrical than him. Eminem and pac sold more albums than him, Kanye has more grammy than him. What are u saying nigga? How is Jay the king of hip hop exactly? U are a fucking loser.

    • ETK

      co-sign. not even a Jay fan but a lot of niggas will hate on successful niggas anyway so

    "He has no criminal record. Everything he has was given to him" Two #1 platinum albums weren't given to him. He earned it. Being a hater significantly reduces the chances Drake will perform at your next birthday party.

    "Diggy Simmons nabbed the Youngstars Award" J. Cole should have rushed the stage and knocked the award out his hand.

    Jay is that nigga if he was fake he would've fell off a long time ago like most rappers, but he's still on top, think of all the rappers that've come & gone, 50 cent, lil flip, nelly, Ja rule,master p, luda, chingy,dmx ll cool j, mobb deep,nore,all them rocafella niggas, wu tang(even tho they still tour they aint hot like that no more)mike jones, chamillionaire, paul wall, numerous one hit wonders from the south, shit i could go on niggas can hate all they want but jay is the real deal & he never sells out despite what the haters say, most of his singles barely chart. but i know what it is niggas wanna wait till he dies to jump on his dick

    • Moron & A HAter

      sorry bra replied on the wrong thread

    • Moron & A HAter

      No matter how much u want jay to fall of,Reasonable Doubt was a classic to hell with the reason u are givin,name one rapper who realeased ever album every year without fallin off even Eminem flopped with Relapsed, stayin on top of yr game is hard but Jay managed give him that...

  • Fuck Marcy

    Jay is one of the most overrated emcee's in the history of hip hop. Fact: only one classic album (The Blueprint) in his over hype career, and please don't even bring up Reasonable Doubt six nice track at best. I'm sorry but that doesn't measure up to classic material. Fact: After RD Jay push out about five marginal albums from '98 thru 2000 consisting mainly of a couple of hot singles here and there. He was able to regain his mojo with the Black Album but it's been all down hill since then.

    • ^^^^

      That's YOUR opinion. No matter what you say, Reasonable Doubt is still a classic.

    • Fuck Marcy*

      Fist six tracks of RD was tight but everything after D'Evils was average with no replay value at all. Sorry Jay stans that's not up to par as far as classic albums. After all it wasn't an EP it was a full length album.

    • ^^^

      How would you know that?

    • Fuck Marcy

      @Yungdubz27 I highly doubt that you were even alive when Reasonable Doubt came out...

    • ^^^^

      That's YOUR opinion. But Reasonable Doubt is a classic.

    • dentaldamboy

      Everyone's got thier own taste in music. And that's cool. But Reasonable Doubt isn't a classic like Ready to Die, Blueprint, Black Album, Get Rich or Die Trying, All Eyez on Me, etc.

    • Yungdubz27

      Naw that shit was dope...I was bumping it when it came out and I still bump it now from time to time...With all the wack shit that is out now its refreshing to listen to music like that.

    • dentaldamboy

      @Yungdubs27 Reasonable Doubt was not aclassic. People didn't bump that until Jay-Z announced he was retiring. And no one bumps that anymore.

    • Yungdubz27

      Reasonable Doubt was a classic....don't know what your talking about but thats was a dope album.

  • Yungdubz27

    I felt like some of that was rigged...Best Video had 2 Beyonce videos and 2 Jay-Z and Kanye West Videos? You mean to tell me there wasn't 2 other videos you could put up there? And I'm a fan of them.

    • ^^^^

      Now, if there's a rapper who has a squeaky clean image, it's Drake. That nigga is from Canada. He lived in a middle class neighborhood/family and starred in a teen drama. He has no criminal record. Everything he has was given to him.

    • ^^^

      You clearly don't know about Jay Z's life. Squeaky clean? Jay is far from that. He has actually sold drugs to survive and, oh, yeah, he did stab someone who pirated his albums and power guilty to the charges.

    • dentaldamboy

      Of course it was rigged. Corporate interests LOVE Jay-Z. He is squeaky clean. He's one of the few rappers without a criminal history. While other rappers posted up as teens to feed thier families, Jay-Z sat around the house moping while his mother and sister nearly starved to death.

    • starface

      U must be joking....Kanye and Jay-z are fuckin legends.....dont mention Weezy and Drake in the same sentence with Rap's elite. SWag indeed

  • ben

    Wow, what a fucking joke. I tried watching until D'Angelo and didn't even get 30 minutes in. I felt like I was a 30 year old going back to High School. Something I don't understand is 'Best Actor.' So, this just means of all the movies out this year, that Kevin Hart was the best black lead role?!? Really? I would scrap that category, it just reeks of bullshit. Movie awards just are not like that. Second, Kevin Hart? It was pretty consensus that that movie sucked.
