"The reason why we leading the pack? This is a marathon
You start off fast and then you weezin in the back"
Has nothing to do with revisionist history.
- Biggie and especially DMX 'started off fast and flamed out
- Rakim (and Kane too) through no fault of his own was 'old school' before he could achieve any longevity, rap moved too fast
You can play the same game with anybody besides Nas and even then he has never been consistantly been 'bigger' than Jay once he popped.
Just about everything that goes into being a "all time great" rapper he has covered. Skillset, longeivty, influence, commercial success. Doesn't matter if 50, Eminem or any other MC had their time in the sun. Doesn't matter if he was never THE biggest at or best at any given time, he is the best rapper overall and the GOAT outside of Pac.
/threadJayz is not a goat breh.
First off he not even original.
The jayz people like to cite is not jayz. That is biter shyt from sauce jaz and big l.
Before that as protege to first jaz and then of all people a darkhorse goat candidate in Kane.
rjay real actual skillset without biting is trash.
Not to mention.
How are you going to crown a nikka.
.who was of age and actually out. To someone like rakim the real goat.
Who never had to ramp up over the course of a decade. While jayz being endorsed by two of the top grassroots emcees. While never once materializing a verse.
In that time and getting so embarrassed in the radio by big l.
They have to create a whole pr revision of the truth and timeline.
jayz is a mulligan.
With revisionist pr.
Jayz is the best at pr in tap history.
which is a bought and paid for. It is not earned and never an indicator of the real grassroots truth.
All you talembout is pr for jayz. That is not skill.
Goat is about skill.
You talking some jiggy shyt.
fukk outta here .
That's crazy..a NRw Orleans Nygga...till this day got lil clones around here...
I can't name 5 jigga clones
