just to keep it 100, it is the white suburban community that is responsible for most record sales, and it is the white suburban community that comes out and supports eminem full force when he drops an album.

I think if we were to somehow exclude that demographic, Jay would easily outsell eminem amongst the core of hip-hop fans. not the commercial core (white suburban), but the cultural core.

imo, while the cultural core of hip-hop recognize em's talent as an emcee, they really don't f with his music that much, especially as of late. The majority of them (imo anyway) don't vibe with him when he starts rapping about crazy ish, or with the accent, or when he makes parody songs(I personally hate those).

that being said. I respect Em. I think hes one of the best to ever do it. I think Em would beat Jay in a battle. em is a battle rapper.

but Em's catalog of music doesn't come anywhere close to Jay's in terms of quality.Nobodys does. Jay simply has a lot more good songs than eminem, and a lot more classic material, so many classic verses.

if by King of Hip-Hop we are talking straight lyrics, I think Em is a legitimate contender. But if we are talking about overall, in terms on influence, respect, catalog, longevity, i think most of the core of hip-hop would have about 5 names (dead or alive) in their head before they thought of em.

For those wondering what that artwork posted by Jay-Z on his site was, it's a book by Jay set to release this November 16.

Featuring an image of Andy Warhol&#8217;s Rorschach on the cover, the beautifully designed, fully-illustrated book decodes 36 songs from JAY-Z&#8217;s extensive catalog. By telling the stories behind some of Jay-Z&#8217;s most famous and provocative lyrics, Decoded offers an intimate, first-hand account of an artist, his work, and the culture that so powerfully shaped him.



Edit:

11 - for the #1 albums
16 - for the number of albums released
10 - for the number of Grammys won

11/16/10

nvm

In his first book, DECODED, pop culture icon JAY-Z describes the hidden meanings behind some of his most provocative songs and provides a highly personal narrative of the culture that so powerfully shaped his life and art. But some stories are bigger than the printed page. Bing, the decision engine from Microsoft, is launching a multi-platform search experience and interactive game to help people decode JAY-Z

Jay-Z Lands Deal To Bring 40/40 Clubs to Airports
(AllHipHop News)
Hip-Hop star Jay-Z is expanding his business empire with a new deal that will bring his popular 40/40 Club to select airports across the United States.

The rap mogul and his partners Juan and Desiree Perez have struck a deal with Delaware North Companies, one of the world's leading and hospitality service providers.

Additionally, Delaware North Companies is one of the largest privately held companies in the U.S., with annual revenues exceeding $2 billion dollars.

"The 40/40 Club is all about creating first-class experiences for guests who want to relax and watch their favorite games," said Desiree Perez. "We want to see our club grow, and to bring those experiences to travelers. A partnership with Delaware North will do just that."

The new deal could bring Jay-Z's 40/40 Club into up 20 major U.S. airports, where Delaware North Companies operate dozens of national and regional brand restaurants.

"We are thrilled to partner with the 40/40 Club, to bring a stylish sports bar and lounge to airports across the country," said Robert Stanton, vice president of business development. "From the personalized, one-of-a-kind jerseys on the wall, to every sports game you can think of on the television screens, the club will bring a new experience that we are sure travelers will welcome."

In related news, AllHipHop.com has learned that Jay-Z's flagship 40/40 Club in Manhattan will close from April to July of 2011 to undergo a complete renovation. The Atlantic City location, which opened in 2005, will remain open.

I wonder if he's going to do anything special for that date since it's the date that the BP dropped and it's going to be 10 years.

You know what I noticed? Jay-Z doesn't has a live album. He needs to drop one. Dude kills live performances specially with his live band.
