The debate is not who is the best of all time or who is the most lyrical it is about who is the CURRENT king of rap RIGHT NOW which would have to be Kanye. Him and GOOD Music are like Jordan and the Bulls back in the 90's right now. You cant be the current king of rap if your not releasing anything and arent even relevant. Jay or Em cant be the CURRENT king or rap considering they are both way past their primes and havent released any good shit in the past like 5 years (besides WTT *with Kanye*). Kanye is the current king and GOOD music is about to show why theyre the top in the game right now with Cruel Summer.
Blueprint 3 wasn't good? American Gangster wasn't good? Hell, I'd even say Kingdom Come was good minus it most likely being his worst album.
I wasnt referring American Gangster and Kingdom Come more Blueprint 3 (which was terrible) and the fact that he hasnt even released anything else besides WTT which again was with Kanye
Jay-Z doesn't need to release anything at this point. He's 42 and rich. WTT was worth the listen thanks to Jigga.
