    Its a good album...its def better than just meh. Its one of those...lemme talk about where i was and where i am. He's giving mentoring lessons to learn from his mistakes he made. Its def not a radio album(though some dumb ass dj played moonlight at the bar i was at on saturday lol). Its interesting to see all the reactions, especially from people who never used to give a fuck about hov. I dig it, but mostly only like 4-5 songs really..which is decent i guess since its only like 10 tracks.

    He's trying but how many will listen? Definitely not for the radio.

    Gathering of the Juggalos seems to be slacking this year. They usually would bring out at least 3 or 4 pretty good old school hip hop acts.

    The first half of the Jay-Z album is terrible, the 2nd half is decent. By themselves, some of the bars are fucking fire, but his flows and energy are meh on a lot of these tracks to the point where it almost sounds like spoken word the way he delivers them. This is def more of a "Shawn Carter" album than a Jay-Z album which is fine, but Jay-Z is the legendary MC, not Shawn Carter.

    He's got some crazy bars on there, but overall the shit has not energy.

    To make an analogy:

    When you go to the court to play basketball, sometimes you'll see an old head out there that was clearly mad good back in the day and can still hit most of his moves, but he ain't trying to run and down the court. The type of nigga when there's a turnover he's like "Yo yo yo, touch it up!" instead of running back to defend the break and never wants to play through anything...that's how Jay-Z raps now.

    Yeah im not on the old style racist animation but the message behind the song is true enough.... it doesn't matter if you're a rich or poor 'black man' in the eyes of everyone you're still a ni**er.

    I'm seeing people acting like idiots over 4:44 platinum status. Apparently it doesn't count if Sprint buys a million copies to give away to costumers.

    I would agree with the inflated platinum status. The album was going to go platinum on it's own. rihanna did the same shit with ANTI

    50's last album was arguably his best one, so yeah he could drop another classic album if he chose to, but he doesn't really make music anymore. Even that last G-Unit EP that dropped, he's only on like 2 songs.

    50 can still put out good music, problem is he's not relevant as a musician anymore. The public isn't asking for more 50 right now. He'd have to do something really amazing to change that.

    not sure how im salty because i have a differing opinion and it's based on the fact 50 has done this before. 50 likes to troll niggas...are we gonna like deny that? I also stated i liked it, its good...not great and that i only really liked 4-5 songs but on a 10 track album thats good for me.

    Motherfucker, you obviously haven't been near a school in your life because your dumbass is showing.

    Also, working with kids isn't the same as being a teacher. So stop trying to make yourself sound like you are. That's like me saying "Well, speaking as someone who pushes buttons to make characters play on a screen, here's what this professionally-trained MMA fighter should do."

    You can't even be mad you're being clowned. You brought it on yourself.
    This is offensive.

    I never said i was a teacher, but i run an afterschool program thats why i know whats going on currently and why i said 50% is not failing everywhere. It has to do with states that run the common core style of education. Which is heavily done in rhode island if not a whole state wide thing where i was doing the program. Does that mean outside of common core run schools that 50% isnt a failing grade hell no. Thats why i said it as a off the cuff joke. He said its a failing grade everrywhere in america and its not.

    @maxx You realize Jay "went platinum" by having Sprint sponsor the album and give it away, right? Not that sales matter, but it's not like people are so in love with this shit that they're falling over themselves to get it.

    And 50 is touring and has the one of top shows on cable, how do you figure he's salty?


    And where outside of Canada is 50% not failing? I studied Common Core and is there is no part of it that has to do with sub-50% being a passing grade lol

    hey thats common core shenanigans. Like the fact some schools math grading where they get credit for a wrong answer but used the common core way to do the problem. But if you use a traditional method they wont count it.

    no i didnt know sprint was involved in a massive giveaway. so they actually bought the albums they gave away? Most just give "Free copies" to companies sponsoring..they counted as sales in this case?

    Yup. Sprint brought a million copies of the album to give away to their customers. Many fans decried this since Jay didn't earn the Platinum record.

    I love Jay Z, Reasonable Doubt is one of the all time great albums in my mind. Jay's new album was as forgettable as Life of Pablo.

    Y'all being ridiculous calling it forgettable. This is in his top5 albums easily. Y'all confusing this with MCHG.

    50 was trolling. He a comedian. He understood everything Jay was talking about business wise from one savvy nigga to another. He does the same shit to Diddy all the time. #EFFEN #POWER #SMSAUDIO
