  • joem

    I dunno why but I don't like this.. It's not a bad song but when I hear it I don't get "joy" or "happiness" from it I get arrogance.. it's sounds too orchestrated and phony and not at all genuine. Not like Eminem's "Hailie's Song" some say it's corny but I think that's probably the realest shit he made. That's a genuine song for sure.. listen to that then listen to this, not even in the same ballpark in terms of feeling or emotion.

  • daviddanielz

    Anything Jay-Z touches is pure magic. He truly is the greatest and most successful hiphop artist of all time. I just love his honesty and how he never needs to lie about anything he does. Although I'm not rocking it in my car, it's amazing that he made it. I'm happy for him.

  • jay z is overrated

    if you invented swag i invented gangster. jay z is weak compared to B.I.G., Nas, Pac, Mos Def & talib kweli, Pharoahe Monch, Rakim, Eminem, Big L. Even some new guys like Kendrick lamar, Lupe fiasco(not that new but still) can easily hold on to jay z's level as i said he is overrated!!!

    • well uh.....

      Even if em's flow aint as smooth as it was in the 1999 - 2004-ish period he's become way more lyrical and clever in his lyrics. And at least he switched his style up a little he brings agression and intensity to the mic. Jay has had the same flow, same soft voice from day 1. Em brings it better lyrically.

    • Golden Age 2

      High dropout ? Did Jay-z Graduate ???? Which is better: Being a dropout, or actually being a full time student without graduating ??? Jay-z can't hold Em's jock strap.

    • Golden Age

      Eminem was hot 10 years ago. His current "flow" is the work of a recovering addict and high school dropout. Eminem can't hold Jay Z's jock strap.

      To me Nas is the best and I'm only 16 yrs Old.. My dad and uncle's have Tought me the difference between great rappers, good rappers,so so rappers and garbage ass rappers and when they mention the great rappers they always say the same names Rakim, Kane, Krs , Cube, Scarface and Chuck D as well as Guru, Slick Rick, LL and G/rap. But when they mention Nas, Big, PAC and Jay, Reakwon and Ghost, Pun and Big L they get mad excited And it's probably cuz 80's kids... My dad told me that illmatic is the best album he's heard since paid in full so what I did what curious kid will do, listen to both albums first Erick B & Rakim joint was sick but when I heard illmatic It was over especial when I heard Nas was in the process of makin the album at the age of 16.... I heard all the rappers that I mention above me but only one could be king and to me it's definately Nasir Jones hands down!

      that's cuz he got two kids. This is Jay's first (that we know of). If you was a emcee you would make a song for your child too, regardless how many times it's been done before.

  • daviddaniel

    I can't believe all the hate directed towards HOV! He comes out with a song expressing his feelings about being a new dad and you guys have all these remarks. Wow! You Jay-Z haters must really hate your own lives so much that you have to hate on a person thats always winning. If you hate life that much work on yourself and make something happen. I personally find HOV to be the leader of our culture in hiphop. No one is perfect but that man has an amazing resume. Who can honestly compare? You can say what you want, but most people strive to be like Jay. Weather you like that statement or not. So haters hate, but I send my hat off to King HOV. Congrats homie, your an amazing rolemodel for the black, spanish, and urban youth.

    No racism, just realism. Music should be colorblind but let's just be honest,I always suspected and would bet my life that 95% of people on hip hop sites geared toward the urban African American population somehow consists majorally of Caucasian and possibly Asian groups thus allowing characters like eminem, who does not get much mention in truly urban neighborhoods across the country and is no where near the best, and even lesser guys like Mac Miller and MGK and Yela to thrive. No racism though, just realism!

    • theman

      yeah.. you're an idiot... you can make arguments for and against mgk/yela/mac (i personally dont like mgk at all, mac is alright but appreciates hip hop, and yela im not crazy about but appreciate his uniqueness). but you cant say eminem isnt one of the dopest. and i'd say that 95% of the content on this site is about black artists (which it should be, as they make up 95% of the music/culture).

    • illiterate

      I'm not quite sure how this is relevant. And as a black man, I can acknowledge that as emcees go, Eminem is a very skilled emcee and can be considered among the best. So don't pull statistics out of your ass based on your assumptions and call it realism. You're not being realistic in the slightest, realism requires truth, which you clearly do not have nor understand.

Whatever moves the numbers in your favor, I'll wait while you do the calculation's. Yeah... multiply the t-shirts sold by the price,okay now subtract the cost of nothing... go ahead...subtract the practically zero dollars it took me to make the shirts. Okay now divide out my percentage. Now, here's the trivky part. Add the mandatory $30 Million I'm guaranteed every year that keeps me atop Hip Hops forbes list.

    Good song, hope its more to come...but peep, I was talking to this Occupy dude that was going hard on Jay, then in a few statements later tried to big up Jay Electronica for supporting the movement. I laughed and asked dude if he knew Jay Elect was on Rocnation. Dude couldn't say nothing, had him all perplexed...lol...I told him "cash rules". I think he was kind of hurt, but I think this is a good example of how people talk constant shit without full info.

    This song is ill!!! And for those people saying Hov isnt as lyrical as Em and Nas are completely wrong because he's as lyrical as them if not more, he just doesn't force metaphors and punchlines down your throat! Nobody paints a picture with words as vividly as Jay-Z so the arguement of who is the GOAT is subjective, but there should only ever be 5 people that are in the conversation!!! Jay-Z, Nas, BIG, Em, and 2Pac.... thoughts??

      yea i agree Scarface is one of Jay-Z favorite rappers UGK is too which isnt odd at all...

      I couldn't agree with your overall position. I think Scarface also deserves consideration as well. In my opinion, he's the greatest rapper to ever rep the south.

  • That's your opinion!!!!

    @Dan(Time to end this G.O.A.T. foolishness.) Your whole article/facts/or whatever your think boils down to opinion. And most of your facts are wrong. I like a decent rap argument with matured and cold hard facts....not the type that gives one all the benefits of doubt coz he's your fav and you feel you know how to write. First off, your skills counts. Jay can never receive the type of praise Nas and Em receive for their lyricism or layout better rhyme patterns than Eminem. Whether you like it or not, SKILLS COUNTS. Lyricism-----Jay is not in the top 5 Flow-------Maybe Rhyme Scheme-----Not in the top 5 Secondly, i respect your first 2 paragraphs "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." Jay-z is without doubt is contender for the GOAT. Now, you passed a verdict based on the following criteria that Jay is the GOAT(Sales, Critical Acclaim, Consistency, Longevity, and Impact). Well, here is my verdict. First, "Eminem has sold nearly twice as much as Jay-Z, and he is Jay's equal when it comes to longevity and impact" That line is 90% true, You know why ? Eminem and Jay ain't on the same level when it comes to impact. Now, I'm talking about the Pop culture(Which is the main culture). Eminem is an Icon, Jay-z isn't, don't get confused, Britney spears is an icon, beyonce isn't. What about worldwide reach ? That doesn't count ? Em is without doubt the most popular and most powerful rapper on the planet. I bet you that some African, Asian countries don't bump Jay-z. Some don't know him. Tupac is the only rapper close to Eminem when it comes to impact. Em has about 50million fans on Facebook, Jay has barely 15million. Em never tweets(His last tweet was "I'm not Afraid", about 10months ago), and he's still the most followed rapper on twitter. He has about 1.6billion views on Youtube, Jay has barely 600million. I like what you said on Acclaim too, but i agree to disagree. " (Im not talkin cult/fanboy classics, Im talkin CERTIFIED classics. XXL/Rolling Stone/Source approved)" Look at any Greatest albums of all times from any publication or Magazine.....They always feature 3 of Eminem's albums(SSLP,MMLP,TES) and 2 of Jay's(RD, TBP). To cult or fanboys, Black album is classic...That's a big lie, It had major flaws and was hyped bcoz of his retirement. Look at Any Greatest artist of all time as well....Em always ahead of Jay. Rolling stone.... Em #82....Jay #88. MTV... Em #7......Jay #8 What about the award Gallores ? Eminem second most successful VMA artist of all times. He's the most successful EMA act of all times. Most successful Grammy solo Rapper(Some of kanye's and Jay's awards are collab projects). Jay owns one of the most successful running labels....So do Eminem. Shady records sold more than ROC. 50cents first album sold more than all of Kanye's album combined. "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)" Who is #1 ? I'll let you answer that yourself. Kanye only has acclaimed album. Be clear of one thing, acclaimed albums don't equate best rapper. I can strongly say that the rapper on Relapse is better than the rapping on Graduation, but Graduation is a Better Album. Kanye is not in the top 50 of all times(I can literally name 50 rappers better than Him). Em dropped 2 diamond albums(I don't give a fuck about race,I'm black btw).....And still doing strong till today. Recovery is currently 4.3million...When last did a rapper album do that figure ? 2005. He was name Artist of the decade even with 5years hiatus....Came back in 2009, and continued to shit on the Game....drop multi-plats albums.....won countless awards, and has now brought one of the best rappers of all time to mainstream(Royce). Like i said earlier....These are my opinions and it make not really count to you bcoz music generally is SUBJECTIVE !!!!! Peace. ***Sorry incase of typos, i make a lot of mistakes while typing***

    • nah

      sales and youtube views do not mean anything, eminem does sell alot more because he is white(not solely, he is obviously very talented),rolling stones and mtv are not credible(the fact that you defend those sources is pretty sad),talking pure rapping skill elzhi is better than eminem so em aint even the best out of detroit, and jay neither eminem are the goat. Also royce is far from one of the best rappers ever, he is probably the corniest in slaughterhouse and if he wasn't somewhat underground nobody would let those wack bars slide.

    • Anonymous

      @Joe. U are still playing d race card? That's not even an argument. There are So many white rappers. How come they don't sell? Em connected with a very wide audience thru his music and that's why they sell. Jay makes music mostly blacks fuck with. @dummychecker. Rolling stone and MTV are credible sources. Em is ranked ahead of Jay on virtually 90% of all the goat lists!

    • Joe

      "If I was black, I would have sold half I ain't have to graduate from Lincoln High school to know that"- Eminem. You may not care about race when it comes to sales, but it's clear that race has a great deal of influence in sales. So all Em's sales number, which are impressive, are still skewed. I have Em as number 2 next to Jay. But, it's very close and you're pretty much splitting hairs either way.

    • DummyChecker

      Nice post,but when you use Rolling Stone and MTV to back your argument you lose all credibility.And by the way,MTV voted Jay-Z the GOAT,so......

    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.

      My man dan u are right, because of the total package( Longevity, sales, Critical Acclaim) but its mostly his Consistency and his Discography that few if any can come close to. not to mention hes taken hiphop places no one else has or could have. but you lost me on a few things; nas biggest problem is his consistency in his albums. nastradamus was terrible, that album should have never made it to ppls ears!! and you have got to beshitting me lil wayne is "may be the most consistent rapper of all time." hell no and you answered why the very next sentince. hes unable to make a classic album and you cant go by a bunch of mixtapes that keep his name ringing 3 or 4 years ago. and lets be clear, since cater III theres been a drop of in lyrical content with i am not rebirth, iam not human, sorry for the wait and carter IV. i dont know but it sounds like if he does have a ghostwriter he has left the building!! don't know how old you are but to say ll cool j acclaim and overall impact isnt that great or whatever is hiphop blasphemy, don't get it twisted other than rakim ll col j was your favorites rapper favorite rapper. ten consecutive platinum-plus selling albums, hits for days, battle proven he "was" the total package. how you gonna mention Pac and not bring B.I.G. both died before they reach the full potential. but dont forget pacs first two albums 2pacaly.. and strictly 4.. were very mediocre, his consistency has to take a hit for that!! Snoop?! naw man, best to ever do it smh. ill put ice cube on there before snoop and you gotta bring up scarface when talking bout best to ever do it. and the boy 3 stakes, critically acclaim,certified classics,longevity and impact. plus hes with out a doubt one of the illest to ever touch a microphone. jay-z is the best to ever do it

    • jake

      that was legit. i gotta respect what you said. one of the only intelligent people on this whole site actually saying something rational that didn't just come across as stupid. like you said its all opinion so i gotta kick lil wayne off the list lol. man country singers even rhyme. pretty much all lyrics no matter the genre rhyme. lil wayne is not a rapper. he rhymes about pop nonsense and mostly just about himself in an extremely stuck up and snobby way. doesn't make him a rapper. i think people just call him a rapper cuz hes black and has tattoos. he's a minimal talent sellout that goes where the trends go instead of setting trends like every other rapping legend. when you're main fan club is 14 year olds with gay ass free weezy shirts and women then you can't really call yourself a rapper. hip hop was created to express ones self in a unique and individual way. it was meant for people to be themselves and have that outlet of escape from stress and shit. it wasn't meant for some jackass to come along and claim the genre and lifestyle but not represent it in any way whatsoever. eminems my favorite rapper and has been since i was a kid but it just kills me to see him doing shit with lil wayne. at least he makes lil wayne sound illiterate when comparing verses and out flows the fuck out of him. i thought hip hop was supposed to be something you can relate to. so my big question is why do i see so many people driving around rust bucket pieces of shit rattling their license plates off with lil wayne talking shit about all the money he has. must be those listeners that listen for a catchy sound no matter how dumb the lyrics cuz not a damn person can relate to that shit. not even semi rich people can relate to the level of rich he brags about. saddens me that millions of people are entertained by this garbage.

      Well said, but ALL opinion..NOT fact

    • Ellie

      You're absolutely right. Folks comment on nothing but hearsay and public opinions.....but never acknowledge the FACTS!! What's wrong with this picture. That means as a society we are quick to believe the LIES and DISTORTIONS than face the facts!! Despite what you think, the FACTS never lie.

    A bit of a prick, leaving his wife and child and going into the studio for a day. He had a miscarrage with another girl in the 90s.

    This was straight from the heart. I wonder if the people hating on this and talking about his daughter were talking talking about Nas when he had that "Me and You" joint on Streets Disciple. Like if y'all were rappers y'all wouldn't do something like this for y'all child. Nonetheless, my verdict is in. Five.

    • WizKid

      What a dumb hating ass comment! I despise bitch ass internet thugs like this anonymous dude! Even when she's 21 Jay will be 62 and when u have money, u hardly age and when u do, u can fucking buy new bones bitch! U ever see how hype and ferocious them NFL coaches be on the sidelines?? The average age is like 60. One thing I can say is that Jay got wiser as he grew older so he'll be a great parent n not just a child's dad who pays child support...He's finished what he wanted to do in life so he can focus on his child 100%, people may need to take a lesson from him instead of having kids before they every touch 100K let alone get a damn degree or just be successful at anything other than rapping, trapping or tryna make it to the pros...

      But why do you think you're so hard when you're spelling like you're trying to be Big Ghost? That's some bitch shit right there... A man's celebrating his child, no need to get up in arms, how the hell could you make a hard song about having a daughter?

  • Anonymous

    One of the consequences of being successful other than wealth is the hatred people have of those that are successful. We naturally feel better about ourselves if someone is doing worse than us because deep down we are insecure and don't think we measure up. This song is dope and Jay Z will do whatever he wants to do. I'm not dickriding just saying that just because you have an opinion it does not mean you have to share it if it does not edify or bring any constructiveness. It's far better to focus on your own life and draw up some goals and plans rather worrying about others. I've always been into the music, everything outside of that is none of my business. Its quite sad to see people take it so personal as to wish death to another person they don't know.

  • BlacksUnite

    I feel sorry for all the lames hating on this man and his family. Maybe if you would of had a father who cared about you as much as it sounds like Jay-Z does for his daughter, you wouldn't be a bunch of ignorant assholes. A successful black man, who came out of the projects, paved the way for future generations, married a beautiful black woman, and is enjoying the birth of his new seed....if you hating on that you are prob from a broke ass, broken home, with no job sitting behind a keyboard spewing the trash you probably learned from your trashy ass family. Choke on a dick and die haters!

    gay z thinks ppl care about his life so much. hes so guarded about his relationship with beyonce. probably because he's never slept with her, and it was an arranged marriage to generate album sales. now beyonce has a kid and gay z is recording songs about it so he can tackle fatherhood after running out of i "i was selling weight in 88" rhymmes. damn this dude is a fraud. big lip feminine ass bitch nigga. gay z best friends is money and a room with no mirrors. i wish the worst for he has shaken hands with the devil more than once. cant wait to see gay z next album flop like watch the throne. they thought they were gonna dbl sales. newsflash. jay z been wack since he staged retirment. staged retirement staged marriage staged child bith fuck gay z
