I am a fan, i sometimes vibe off his flow in my lyrics..but i am a bigger fan of people like nas, rakim, ras kass, and the wu. Your still missing what i am saying...i think this conversation is about whether or not Jay is the GREATEST LYRICIST alive..I kinda feel like saying that is like saying Bush is the best president we've had since Jimmy Carter. Becuz Jay's focus on rap was for the business aspect, he's a hustler...so he saw a spot open in music where no one was taking it over and he did that, that's what a good hustler does they're not afraid of challenges. But if you say the "greatest alive", you HAVE to take into account his lyricism. And the truth is, he has gotten watered down over the years, he just knows how to write things that will sell, not really things that will impress hardcore listeners cuz he knows there's only so many of 'em nowadays and that's not where the money's at.

...this is when wutang first showed, Gza has a verse that to ME rivals, unforgetable verses like Kane's on Marley Marl's Symphony and Redmans on Full cooperation..

"first of..who's ya' A&R?
a mountain climber, who plays..and electric guitar?
but he don't know the meaning of dope
when he's looking for a "suit and tie" rap,
that's cleaner than a bar of soap
and i'm the dirtiest thing in sight, matter fact
bring out the girls, and lets have a mud fight"

GZA is better than Nas, and Nas is handsdown one of the greatest.
Both are better than Jay, Jay was nice during Reasonable Doubt...
still, then you couldn't compare it to shit from Nas and Gza. Jay knows how to sell records, that's all...50 is doing the exact same shit and people fall for it! Does that also make 50 one of the best rappers of all time?! becuz he can entertain you! They're all crowd pleasers...those that wanna hear an artist with uniqueness and display lyricism that is vast and intelligible in writing will listen to GZA, Nas, or Rakim, and respect it. Those who don't care about extensive lyric ability but can enjoy a simple song that don't require much thought or imagination listen to 50 and Jay.

And if you think Gza is still better than Rakim, listen joints like "know the ledge", "follow the leader", and "Let the rhythm hit'em". He is and originator of sudle disses, sharply clever lines, and concept writing, before you heard some of Gza joints.

"so whenever you see me, come up freeze/
............or you'll be one of those seven emcees/"
i got rakims 18th letter/book of life & The Master

but i still think that GZA is a better lyricits

^And that my friends, is the beauty of an argument with no exact answer. That's an opinion I can respect since GZA is fuckin' sick.

^All rappers bite in some form or another, people act like Jay is the only one to do it. Shit music is recycled constantly by everyone.

Re: Is Jay Z The Best Rapper Alive

Hell no is jay z the greatest rapper alive.. Nas walks all over him, not to forget Fabolous, or if we're to go underground then someone like Immortal Technique would eat Hova for breakfast.

Re: Is Jay Z The Best Rapper Alive

Well, Not Everyone Wants To Go Mainstream, Some Stay Underground Because They Love Rap/Battling, They Don't Give A Fuck About Bein' Rich Or Touring.. So With That Said, I Think There Realy Is Not/Wasn't A "Greatest Emcee"
