I should have been more clear: I meant with rappers that are still alive.

also, it's not like Biggie and Tupac killed each other, so the beef they had together was not the cause of their deaths.. at least, in my opinion. it could always be argued otherwise, I just think that whoever murdered them did it for reasons other than they were supporting their favourite rapper.. but they're both unsolved, so you never know!

But yes, I would have to dub that the biggest beef in -all- of hip-hop's history. Quoting the late BIG, "it made a whole east coast hate a whole west coast."

I'm not sure if he'll be successful or not, either.. but I really don't even care. He has plenty of money, I doubt he's making a new album to make more.. he's the CEO of a huge company, owns a clothing company as well, and manages plenty of artists, including Nas.

I'm sure the real Jay-Z fans will just be glad he's back, even if it's just for one more CD or for until he gets tired of rap again. I'm glad he's back, losing someone as big as him in the current "rap game" (even though he didn't die) was a little like losing Tupac or BIG, although probably not as big of an event because they were shot down, but more because he's been really influential in the past and the development of rap and hip-hop. It's like when Eminem was retiring, he only really produces anymore, one of the biggest reasons I'm looking forward to D12's new CD and his own new CD later this year.

Re: Jay-Z's new single

I was just commenting on your best ever comment, imo neither of these are close to the best. If I had to pick one to listen too, I would choose JayZ . Nas is junk. imo D-Nice wouldve ownd him and he was a MC. Im west coast though, totally different sound.

Re: Jay-Z's new single

There's plenty of rappers that I would say deserve the title of "one of the best ever," though. I wasn't trying to say Nas is the best rapper ever. Tupac was probably the most influential rapper in ALL of history, whether you want to agree or not, his album sales (the most in hip-hop, followed by Eminem in second) speak for themselves on how he changed the way rap should be. They have classes in college about his life and his lyrics and poetry. He would have done a lot of stuff if he hadn't died. Funny thing is, is that when he died he had, I believe, upwards of 1000 unreleased tracks or something like that(although some may not even be fit for release), so his mother/Death Row keeps putting out unreleased stuff. Rakim was even before Tupac's prime, and he introduced complex lyrics into an otherwise simple way of rhyming. There's plenty of rappers that I would have to say are "one of the best" to me.. none of them are "the best" alone, though.

Anyway, I wasn't saying Nas was -the best ever-, but I think he's a great rapper and I enjoy listening to him. My favourite rapper to listen to is Eminem, because of the way he rhymes and puts his lyrics together. He's a lyrical genius, to say the least.. he puts other rappers to shame, even when he stars on their singles as a guest appearance, he usually kills them (reminds me of the song we ain't by the game, after Eminem's verse, he says something like "Eminem just killed me on my own shit").

Never heard of D-Nice, I did a Google on him and apparently he's a photographer now, or something. If you can recommend some albums or songs of his I will try to get a hold of them and check him out.

Re: Jay-Z's new single

D-Nice - crumbs on the table.mp3, all i can remember from the 80s lol. I 100% agree with you though that Rakim was the man, along with Tupac, Chuck D, Ice Cube, and I also liked Special Ed. Ed had some groovy beats and had basically zero cussing in all his career.

also an irrelvant sidenote: I remember who started the bling in the grill before lil jon and Nelly. His name was Just-Ice, he was east coast and was really the first rapper that I noticed had a full blown gold an diamond grill when everyone was sporting mr. T bling still.

Re: Jay-Z's new single

I found the album "Call Me D-Nice" (which has that song you mentioned on it) and "To the Rescue," I'll grab them later tonight.
