    MCHG is dope as fuck. The whole album is great. It's way the fuck better than Yeezus which was a let down for me. Born Sinner has its moments, but HOV is on another level. His beats are diverse and better than Ye's and Cole's combine, concepts are deeper, lyricism is better than Ye and Cole (not quite black album), but definitely there. I have no clue how this guy below can even remotely say Ross's verse killed the whole album. Ross is on his usual shit with a few nice lines like, "Money talk I speak fluent nigga, Reeboks on, I just do it nigga" - While Jay hits with a double entendre,"Cent'anni, ciao bella Come money dance with the good fellas, Hov keep gettin' that dinero, got it Even if a nigga gotta Robert, get it?".......C'MON SON!!! And he flips the flow mid verse...GTFOH...

      if you think the elementary rhyme schemes on this album are better then the lyrics on Born Sinner then you must be either insane or a Jay-Z stan. and that's coming from a Jay fan.

  • TRE

    ehh maybe 3-4 solid tracks IMO. kinda just sounds like a better version of Yeezus. Jays flow is still there on some songs but his lyrical ability took a huge drop. i'd honestly rather listen to BP3 all the way through then this. but once again thats just my opinion. i say 6/10

      You're lying. MCHG is a great album. Rick Ross the C.O. was the worst part of the album. Wayne kissing Birdman is gay, no matter what bullshit excuse you make. Two men kissing is gay, period.

    • dentaldamboy

      MCHG is a terrible album, I don't have to listen to the majority of you, Rick Ross is the best part, and Wayne kissing Birdman is not gay but the circle of life and a father and son moment.

      Everything you say, dentlabitch, is lies. MCHG is a great album. Rick Ross is actually the worst part of that album. BTW, Wayne kisses men on the lips; that's gay.

      That's a fake. Im not even gay and I have my own samsung phone. I had to listen to the album to see how shit it is but that is the worst I have heard from Gay Z. Wayne isn't gay BTW.

    • dentaldamboy

      Let me clarify...I was listening to Wayne's Samsung phone while he was in the shower after he fucked the shit out of me. I didn't mean to listen to the album but it was good...I was just trying to see if Weezy was cheating on me with other men.

    The artwork for Yeezus was minimalist, but that was part of its charm and I liked the post-modern meta aspect of having an album cover's official artwork represented by bootleg-style CD case. Jay-Z's attempt however is pathetic. No thought as gone into this lousy record cover, and some listeners who may have been tempted to buy this album will now be cautious. My favourite LPs so far this year - Ghostface, Action Bronson, Durag Dynasty, Ill Bill, Homeboy Sandman, Prodigy/ Alchemist - all made an effort in their artwork and the quality of the artwork was matched by the music. Jigga can learn from them dudes.

      Either Jay-Z wants to try and carry his own album as solo as possible, or he's afraid that those artists you mentioned will murder him on his own shit. By the looks of the lyrics Jay keeps dropping for this project, it looks real lazy so I'd go with the latter.

      It looks like it was 2 seconds of thought put into that album cover, I could have used Paint to make that. Compare that to Born Sinner's album cover that actually paints a picture of the vibe of the album. It's a wack cover, end of story.

    "And Rick Ross was a C.O." At 19, Dre worked at BK.

  • Nick T

    Suburban whites who don't have the street IQ to know the difference between a C.O. and a policeman are still heartbroken that Ross doesnt know Pablo Escobar and that JayZ didn't lose 92 Bricks. The Streets and people who listen to music for entertainment don't concern themselves with weather or not Dr Dre was ever a "Gangsta" or if Pusha T ever sold kilograms or if Snoop ever lived off the earnings of a prostitute....we listen to rap-music for the sound of the instruments and the slickness of the poetry. Suburban whites listen to our music so they can live out a "Ghetto" fantasy through the lives of our rappers which is why they focus so much on what they perceive as real/fake or fabricated/authenticated...our music is their only means of getting a street education so they actually attempt to believe song lyrics are supposed to be biographical criminal confessions..

  • Soulja Boy Track Review

    Pretty Boy Swag The complex nature of this song really went over a lot of listeners heads. Soulja Boy recounts this verse in the flow of a kid suffering from down syndrome at an attempt to personify the positive aspects of life the underprivileged appreciation in juxtaposition to the spoiled middle class. Soulja demonstrates through his flow that a child suffering from down syndrome views all of the Earths inhabitants as pretty individuals in comparison to the judgmental youth in present day America. This song is a call for action by Soulja to embrace all imperfections and be cognizant of those who have it worse.

  • YESSIR

    Jigga hit Nas with a deconstruction of his career, and Nas hit back with playground insults. Admittedly, Jay-Z's deconstruction was heavily skewed. I mean if you're gonna dismiss Nas' second and third albums as inconsequential, you gotta dismiss your own second, third, fourth and fifth albums as well cause to me those are no worse or better. As for Nastradamus, I might be in the minority saying that was an OK album, but I'm also in the minority saying The Dynasty was really tight. So some of Jay's 'Takeover' shots hit home. 'Ether', not so many. The shots at Damon Dash seem pretty accurate, really. But all that shit about dick-sucking lips, having an inferior mustache and wearing Hawaiian shirts etc etc? "I rock hoes, you rock fellas!" Pretty weak. It's not like Nas doesn't have grounds to hit back. I mean, he was being criticised for falling the fuck off and making bullshit, money-chasing albums by a dude who had also fallen the fuck off and made bullshit money-chasing albums in his past. (To be honest, I'd still choose Jay's over Nas', though I Am... is a classic in my eyes.) But he's stuck in "YOU'RE A GAY AND UGLY BITCH!" mode. Come on, point out some shit Nas, like how half of Jigga's albums are punk-smooth club bullshit with Lil Mo and Mariah Carey and Babyface and R Kelly and half are tales of "real $treet $hit from ya boy tha hu$tla nicca"... speak on his albums! He spoke on yours! Damn I really feel like Nas could have gone off on this, still seems like a missed opportunity. By the end of the tirade of gay jibes and "no, YOU copied ME nigga!" crying, I really hoped this would be enough, that Nas would have had his cathartic release and could GET THE FUCK OVER IT. But then, we have an endless stream of bullshit.

      Quit disrespecting Nasty Nas. He's the king, no one other than Pac was as real as him. Jay sold his soul for riches. I'm not judging him, but Nas took a more admirable route. Bottom Line.

    You YMCMB haters are fucking idiots. Because I'm an accountant for Cash Money Records, I spend a lot of time with Birdman. What some of you may not know is Michael Jackson was planning on signing to YMCMB at the time of his death. He had even changed his stage name to Mic Jackin. He was planning on releasing 2 Major albums of hard hitting Trap shit, one a collaborative album with Lil Wayne titled Trap Kids. Since Michael's demise Cash Money records have actually teamed up with NASA and are creating a Global headquarters in Space and on the Moon. The reason for this is to create a new genre of hiphop called "Zero Gravity Rap". Lil Wayne was hospitalized because during his first zero gravity rap training session he rapped so hard he created a Blackhole that nearly engulfed him. The universe was not ready for his talent so it tried to take him, luckily all it got was his chain and a couple of Big Mac vouchers. All you haters are gonna be sorry soon YMCMB will be so big it will have its own gravitational pull meaning you will be drawn into it no matter what you do.

    Time to end this G.O.A.T. foolishness. In this constant debate about Jay-Z being the best ever I read things like "Nas will destroy Jay-Z" or "Eminem got a better flow than Jay" Those are OPINIONS. When will you fools learn that you can't win a debate with OPINIONS. Every rapper has a different style based on where they are from, the time period in which they were most successful, and their unique personality. We all can go on for days about our personal preferences but in a debate criteria like this is completely IRRELEVANT and automatically BIASED. The only way to win a debate is with cold hard FACTS. And the fact of the matter is that, when you weigh all of the tangible criteria (Sales, Critical Acclaim, Consistency, Longevity, and Impact) Jay-Z makes the strongest case for the G.O.A.T. Eminem has sold nearly twice as much as Jay-Z, and he is Jay's equal when it comes to longevity and impact. But Em lacks the consistency or critical acclaim that Jay-Z has (Im not talkin cult/fanboy classics, Im talkin CERTIFIED classics. XXL/Rolling Stone/Source approved) Eminem is VERY close though. Nas has enjoyed more critical acclaim and more overall respect in the hip-hop community through the years. And he's definitely equal to Jay with longevity and impact. But he hasn't been no where near as much of a consistent presence in hip-hop as Jay has. And he is obviously lacking in the sales department. Lil Wayne just may be the most consistent rapper of all time. He's no slouch when it comes to longevity and impact either. His glaring flaw? In his 12 year career Lil Wayne has yet to drop a truly critically acclaimed classic album (and it can be done in this climate. just look at kanye's discography). Also, contrary to popular beleif, Wayne lacks in the sales department. Sure, Tha Carter III and IV are blockbuster albums, but his OVERALL sales of 10 mil US pale in comparison to Jay-Z's 31 mil. 2pac is a touchy subject. When it comes to impact, pac takes the cake. No other rapper touched the world like 2pac did. He, like Em, has also sold more than Jay and he was very consistent in his time. Sadly, 2pac passed before his time which allowed Jay-Z to surpass him in longevity and critical acclaim. LL Cool J was the prototype for what a G.O.A.T. could be. He has enjoyed the most longevity, and he was fairly consistent, but his sales, acclaim and overall impact are no where near the likes of 2pac, Eminem, and ofcourse Jay-Z. Biggie, Rakim, Common, Snoop, the list goes on. All of these MC's are great but none of them have the total G.O.A.T. package like Jay-Z does. Jay-Z is the 3rd highest selling rapper of all time, and the richest. He's one of the most acclaimed (perhaps only rivaled by his boy Kanye). He dropped multi-platinum albums YEARLY from 96'-03', and he is still going strong today. He's been in the game since 88'. He's impacted hip-hop in countless ways from starting one of the 1st successful MC-owned record labels, to being the 1st non-athlete with a signature shoe, to surpassing the likes of Elvis with #1 albums. Jay-Z is without question the Greatest MC Of All Time. Period. You don't have to listen to him everyday (Im currently on my Kendrick wave). You don't even have to like him. But for goodness sake, RESPECT THE FACTS.

    • Anonymous

      Biggie had the total package: - flow - delivery - witt - lyrical - pop - hardcore - rnb - charisma - wordplay - repsect from rappeople and poppeople 2pac is M.O.R.E most overrated rapper ever.

    • What a waste...

      To anonymous.. why even waste your time posting that comment?? You clearly just wanted to disagree because of all the FACTS listed.. and you responded w/ more opinion, and even MORE opinion when mentioning Big.. Big is dead (RIP) and.. you're a sour loser.. At least come out with a more drawn out opinion than "there's a reason people have opinions", and let the man post that truth.. or bring something useful to the table. Jackass

    • Anonymous

      I appreciate you took the time to write that all out, but... Jay, Big, Pac, Em, Nas, 3000 etc: No one is wrong for thinking they are the greatest of all time. Just saying. There's a reason people have "opinions". I undoubtedly believe Biggie would have had a career just as long/successful as JayZ.

    Jay Z colabin with William Roberts further cements Em's legacy as the goat.

    • Lol @ Jay Haters!!

      To the first (and third) anonymous.. perhaps Jay did a song with Rick Ross because he.. oo, I don't know.. initially signed him to Def Jam when he was president.. I'm sure Jay, who is steadily approaching the BILLION dollar mark, is less worried about "ex Pigs turned poser rappers", and more about the legacy his music will leave behind, or at least how it will sound when you first hear it (because not all of his music is truly timeless, but he has to try really hard to put out a bad track/album).

  • Slim #1 Em #1.5

    Em is easily the GOAT. Not Pac, not Biggie, not Jay, not Nas, not Wayne, not some flash in the pan never has been like Lupe, Mos Def or Common, not some overhyped fag like Drake or 2 Chains. It is all Em. Especially his Slim Shady persona. I have NEVER been so mesmerized by a rapper as I have Em. He is the most relatable rapper ever and he raps about shit all these other lame rappers rap about. Em has rapped about pedophilia, incest, murder, rape, domestic violence, his mom, his dad, his kid, his drug habit. The dude is an all around master. He also has a flow that has been mimicked but never topped. He has NEVER been outdone on a song with features. He bodied EVERY single rapper he's ever beefed with. He has outsold EVERY rapper by at least 50 million. Em can literally do no wrong. Oh how can I forget his perfect candance, his dexterity, his untouched lyrical ability. There will never be another Eminem and there will never be a rapper to touch in any way shape or form. And you hater NEED to accept it

      Although you are a little over the top, I agree that the Slim Shady persona is simply untouchable. Em's ability to make you laugh, cry, and get angry all at the same time is unprecedented

He does this every album, usually by featuring every pop star who has buzz at the time, just check his previous tracklistings and cross them with release date this time he knows no matter who he features his shit WILL NOT SELL, so he decides to give away an imaginary 1 million copies so he can hide behind that when his album sales are poor sales dont mean shit when it comes to skills but they mean everything to Jay all he cares about is using numbers to create the illusion he's more relevant and more successful than he is and no money isn't the only measure of success before you children claim it is...

    This looks like it could be a very well put together piece of work. His choice for Rick Ross as a feature is questionable, but it worked on Nas' Life is good, so Nas's album was obviously Jay-Z's little experiment to see if that would work. But the beats for the album are very commendable, rick rubin will definitely have produced 7/8 songs himself, and timbaland doing the singles here and there and pharell doing his little bitchy voice as an ad-lib here and there. Should be fantastic!!!! JT is gay

  • my scary dream

    This dream i had just today had to be the creepiest and weirdest dream I ever had. So it started off with a man crossing the road with his son heading home. As he crossed the road he noticed there was a ginger cat lying there in the middle of the road and it seemed to be injured. The man was fond of animals and he attempted to scare the cat away from the road. Eventually the cat moved to the side and the man noticed that the cat looked be injured. The injury seemed to have occurred on the cats under belly. So the man grabbed the cat and flipped it and found that there was nothing wrong. The man decided that nothing was wrong with the cat so the man and son decided to continue walking home. As he was walking home the cat continued to follow him. The man eventually got irritated of the cat so he shouted "what's your problem" angrily to the cat. This is where the dream gets somewhat strange the cat responded in clear cut English and claimed it needed a place to stay and it had nowhere to go. The son pleaded with the father to allow the cat to stay with them and the father reluctantly agreed. So the cat followed the father and son to their house how ever on the way the cat kept muttering about how the world was going to end. The man was getting very irritated and he told the cat if it continued muttering those words the man will throw the cat out and hurt the cat. After the man dropped the son and cat off at home he went to work. At work the man received an emergency call from his wife that something bad happened at his house. The man drove quickly home with a sense of urgency from the call he had received from his wife. Upon arriving he was shocked by the site he came across. He found his son with a big gash across his face sobbing in tears and quickly assumed that the dreaded cat had done it. The cat was continuing to mutter the gibberish saying the world was going to end. Enraged the man stormed into the kitchen and grabbed a knife. The man then ran full speed towards the cat and grabbed it by its throat. Shaking with rage he positioned the knife parallel with the cats throat. This is where things really got weird for me as i was watching this movie from a third person point of view. The dream shifted to reality and what i saw was that the man was not holding the cat by the throat with a knife he was actually holding his wife by the throat with a knife. The man had actually dreamed of the cat and the events that occurred prior to the dream shift and through subconscious the man was still asleep when he had sleep walked to the kitchen grabbed a knife and then subconsciously mistook his wife as the cat. The man choked the wife with a firm grasp disallowing his wife to scream. Then the unthinkable happened through his sleep state the man who thought his wife was the cat that caused all these problems for him slashed the throat of his wife how ever in his dream he was slashing the throat of the cat. After wards the man woke up and found what he had done and slashed his own throat and then i woke up feeling very shocked at the dream I just had. This is not an actual story or a movie it is what happened in my dream and no matter how much you research these events that occurred in this dream you will not find it anywhere on the internet.

    Gay Z will bomb with this album, just like Yeezy. The audience is finally realizing that they are pop artists that do songs like Empire State of Mind and Stronger. Drake will outsell them both, prehaps combined.

      Those are lies. Kanye will have the best selling week this year in hip-hop. Yeezus is more hip-hop than anything Wayne put out. That last thing you said is a big lie you made up in your head.

    • dentaldamboy

      Wayne still has the best selling week this year of hiphop. Yeezus is not hiphop and I heard in that sex video Kayne did with Jay Z for private use that Kardashian is going to buy at least 200k copies.

      Considering Yeezus will do 375-400k its 1st week, that means that Jay will do the same numbers or more. Your logic is flawed.

    This is a review of the 2010 classic that is, The DeAndre Way. I will not explain the meaning of the title of this album until the end because it is of great significance that each song is truly explained in order to comprehend the title. First Day of School Similar to Kendrick Lamars Good Kid M.A.A.D City, this album is a narrative of the life of Soulja Boy. In this song, Soulja exemplifies the stresses of students on their first day of school. He glorifies the outfits of these students who want to out best one another to demonstrate the competitive American culture that holds true to this modern age. Soulja Boy also becomes one of the first emcees in this modern day of hip hop to assert advocacy of condoms. In this line Soulja Boy is confiding in students to practice safe sex or do not engage in sexual activities at all: Cleanest Ni**a in the school, class of 08. When Soulja says that his Hat gonna match his shoes, his shirt gonna match his belt he is stating how consumerism is tricking American society into conforming to societal norms. If you have not picked up yet, these articles of clothing are clear representations of the anatomy by which they reside. The hat rests on the brain, his shoes represent his feet, his shirt symbolizes an exterior covering of the heart, and the belt represents the genitalia region. Soulja boy is simply stating that all of his body parts act in uniformity and that with all of his parts acting in uniformity he will resolve to exerting no weaknesses and will obtain success. Clearly one of the deepest songs on the album and a clear tone-setter. Touchdown Soulja Boy begins the track with a very aggressive tone. He says Shotty get out my way a numerous of times in a very monotone voice in order to paint the vulgar depiction of American football. Soulja sublimely recollects the game of football and is able to interconnect this song to the current Concussion Lawsuit that is currently ongoing regarding the Players Association and the NFL. By depicting the animosity of football in such a monotone voice, Soulja is speaking in the perspective of a former NFL player and is exemplifying how over time all of the hits and pain turn them into more or less emotionless robots. The monotone flow continues throughout the track. When Soulja talks about the clubs, his cars and guns he is stating how all of these material rewards these players gain from playing football really mean nothing to him. He has lost his soul to the music industry in a similar fashion as to how a former NFL player loses their soul after playing such a ruthless sport for that long. Hey Cutie (ft. Trey Songz) Conceptually this song clearly caught a lot of people off guard. In this song, Soulja elaborates on his love with Hip Hop. He does it in a very unique manner in comparison to other artists who have attempted to achieve the same purpose. Soulja Boy discusses his love for hip hop in a transitioning conversation similar to how J Cole speaks to his girlfriend in the song Lost Ones. Soulja begins the song with When I get you to the bed, me and you gon' turn up (a clear reference to turning up the Ipod before finally going to bed). Soulja mentions candles, fire and light in the first verse which symbolizes an expression of illumination. Soulja is stating to Hip Hop how he feels remorse for selling out in his previous two albums and wants to change to a style similar to his mixtape days. This is a prevailing conflict throughout the album. In the second verse however, the bars are spoken through a picturesque representation of Hip Hop in the physical form. Hip Hop speaks to Soulja telling him not to worry. Hip Hop is speaking to Soulja stating that she just wants to change yo life, and show you somethings that you have never seen, and take you to places you have never been before. Hip Hop is coherently stating that by Soulja staying true to his music and his soul, fame will be achieved and he will be able to see people and things he has never seen before (notably the Grammys and eventually the Hall of Fame). Speakers Going Hammer Soulja Boy notions at his respect gained in his neighborhood for the political outcry he has against the governments neglection of the ghetto. He talks about waking up early in the morning (symbolizes his determination to publicly protest) and earning respect in the neighborhood. Speakers Going Hammer as a title symbolizes the determination of Soulja. With his voice he will continue to hammer away at the political and social outcrys that still belittle the African American Community. Soulja criticizes politicians Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton when he states Girls wet like they living in a fish tank in a way to criticize their narrow thinking (similar to the narrow inescapable dimensions of fish tanks) Pretty Boy Swag The complex nature of this song really went over a lot of listeners heads. Soulja Boy recounts this verse in the flow of a kid suffering from down syndrome at an attempt to personify the positive aspects of life the underprivileged appreciation in juxtaposition to the spoiled middle class. Soulja demonstrates through his flow that a child suffering from down syndrome views all of the Earths inhabitants as pretty individuals in comparison to the judgmental youth in present day America. This song is a call for action by Soulja to embrace all imperfections and be cognizant of those who have it worse. 30 Thousand 100 Million (ft. Lil B & Arab) In this powerful song, Soulja spits bars over a repetitive hook to attack the lifestyle of the top 1% of America. The title is an actual juxtaposition of the bottom sector of America (earning $30,000 and less) and the upper sector (earning $100 milion and more). The hook is repetitive in order to attack the repetitive lives they live in which there is no thrill in comparison to Souljas lifestyle. Lil B then appears on the track and gives this album one of its most memorable features lyrically. He states how because he is sharp like a dagger' and has "moves like Jagger (a clever simile in itself that has never been used before), he will aspire for fame and dreams of the materialistic fanatasies that fame can formulate (hanging out with Hefner and the Playboy Girls for ex.). Mean Mug (ft. 50 Cent) In this song, Soulja highlights the insecurities of a ghetto adolescent boy that results in his transcendence into a Gangster/Gang Banger. Soulja definitely had a clear interpretation of what Emcees he would feature for each song and he did so here. In choosing 50 Cent, Soulja acts with the notion of choosing a figure who is seen as a gangster as a way of bringing to life the actual narration of a gangster. The hook is so ferocious and vile for the purpose of expressing the attitude ghetto children feel on the streets in which they feel that there is no way out. Soulja says F**k a mean mug as a way to encourage his listeners to stay true to their heart and act against the underlying trend that continues in the inner cities. Blowing Me Kisses In this song Soulja Boy expresses his advocacy for Gay-Marriage. Throughout the song, Soulja contrasts heterosexual and homosexual relationships. The main premise behind this song Soulja attempts to establish is that in both of these relationships, both members love one another in a similar fashion and deserve to express their love. Soulja coherently notions Gay-Marriage when he states : When Im in your city, men I shut the town down, tell the whole world Im hot right now. Fly This song in my opinion, has marked Soulja Boy into the Hip Hop History Books. In this song Soulja takes a stand against the usage of marijuana. The hook and bars are spit in such a careless and pervasive manner that paints the internal atmosphere of an individual who has just achieved a high. Soulja states how he is now going to be an inspiration to the youth when he states You know it, inspiring, the youth. He arranges his thoughts in such a scattered mindset as to isolate the problem and demonstrate that if the youth is smoking weed, they are only damaging their future and can not create concrete thoughts consistently. Grammy (ft. Ester Dean) In a rather emotional conclusion to this album Soulja, brings this narrative back to the present time. He reflects on his previous albums in demonstration that he is aware he messed up. He pledged his soul to the industry instead of his strong and prevailing fanbase. To conclude the album, Soulja powerfully asserts to the Music Industry that if they cannot appreciate his most honest and introspective work yet and reward him with a Grammy, he does not desire to ever win one. Throughout this entire album, Soulja recognizes his failures in standing up to the Industry and finally demonstrates himself as in individualistic artist who does not work for the Industry, but for the people. This powerful conclusion captivates the resounding themes of this album thematically. CONCLUSION In conclusion, Soulja Boys The DeAndre Way is one of the most consistent Hip-Hop Albums to this date. To consider: The DeAndre Way has sold 56,000 copies so far in the US, while Nass Illmatic sold 59,000 copies in the first week. Just a coincidence? ___ (reminder that sales clearly are not everything). The production on this album truly captivates the tone of each individual song. This album has a significant feature to it that will assert itself as a classic with time: relevancy. In the album, Soulja calls for action against the government, social issues such as gay marriage, his relationship with hip hop, a call for action against marijuana usage, a depiction of what causes ghetto children to turn to thugs, the economic disparities of the rich and poor, and introspective storytelling at its finest. The title of the album is clearly a resemblance of his name (DeAndre). The importance in stating the meaning of the title at the end was for you as readers to truly understand the way of DeAndre. In following DeAndres benchmark which he emotionally enshrines in this beautiful thematic adventure, we can only hope as listeners that the world will be a better place.
