    Jay-Z Disses Hammer, Hammer Responds!

    Liking Soulja Boy is one thing, but would he put him top 10? Probably not, would he put Jigga top 10? More likely. I'm down for Hammer defending himself, being a man and standing up. But he didn't exactly go 'hard' did he? Lets face it. Dissing people and beefing is played out, I agree, but if it did go beef/battle full on, I'm willing to bet on Jigga still being victorious. Yeah I get it, Hammer is real, hes the roots, he came from the gutter and made it, I get all that, but again, his life story still doesn't make him a better rapper than Jigga. When it comes down to whose the better rapper, it is all about skills. If we're talking whose the better person, who stayed more humble or who represents what hip hop originated as, then yeah, Hammer probably takes it. But thats not gonna win him a battle against Jay.

    Dont worry man, I know the lyrics, but you'll also find that Will rates Jigga highly, so probably doesn't see him as fake. Especially since he signed his daughter, haha. Im aware of his positive message, but if you go in a record store and see those KRS covers, you're not thinking positive is gonna be the content are you? Being honest? BTW Ted, I'm think the lyrics are wrong in your signature. Sounds like "Yo Jay, I got a reason to doubt" to me.

    Jay-Z Disses Hammer, Hammer Responds!

    I didn't saying a party track as a diss makes it wack, Jingling Baby is a banger, but, its not a diss track, he just goes at Kool in it for a few bars, its not a complete diss track, but even so, it has sick punchlines in it, punchlines that arent evident in Hammers Jay diss. Just becuase you don't think Jigga has been original/creative over the past 10 years or so doesnt make Better Run Run creative or original. Its merely that you like Hammer more, so you cant be objective. I hate this term 'real artists', what does that actually mean? You think they're real coz you like them, thats what it boils down to. How can you bring up the negative influence gig when you rave so much about KRS One? Even though he's holding a gun in both his first 2 album covers. I'm not hatiing on KRS, but once again, its about what you like, you like KRS, so you ignore his negativity, you're not so much of a fan as Em's so you pin point him as negative, even though he's one of the more positive rappers to be in the mainstream over the last decade, and releases positive songs as singles successfully, something not many others, including the 'real' artists do. Truth is, there was just as much negative influence when hip hop started as there is now, we're just more aware of it because media controls the world and publicises it more these days. And BTW, saying you don't believe in God in a song isnt a bad thing, because you don't have to believe in God, its a choice. Once again it boils down to, you believe in God, so you have a problem with it. I don't believe in God, but yet I still don't have a problem when an artist talks about how great God/religion is, for example, I think DMX's Lord Give Me A Sign is one of his best ever.

    Jay-Z Disses Hammer, Hammer Responds!

    I'm fully aware of how consistent Hammers resume has been and for how long, but that again doesn't make him a better rapper than Jigga. It seems like you pigeon hole artists by what era they come from, yes Hammers a pioneer, but that doesn't mean that an artist that comes out 5, 10 or 100 years after him isn't a more gifted talent. As for the punchlines, I don't see any, old skool or otherwise, if Jigga dropped those exact same lyrics you wouldn't be impressed as much, if at all. They're pretty weak, all he's saying is he's gonna knock him out, that's not original or creative IMO. It's a party track, you can't make a diss track that vibing and be taken seriously. It's all opinion, music is only good or bad by opinion, but sometimes that opinion is so blind we lose sight of what is real. Coz at the end of the day, there's was a lot of wack artists in the 80's and 90's as well as there is today, it's just about what the audience likes at the present time, for example, I hate indie rock music, but the last few years there's been a huge rush of that style taking over the UK charts, so it must be good, otherwise people wouldn't buy it. Whether we like it or not. For Eminem being overrated, he's far from it, he deserves every accolade he gets, he deserves every ounce of respect he gets, he's arguably one of, if not the best lyricist out there now or ever. He belongs on that pedastal, other artists are underrated.

    Jay-Z Disses Hammer, Hammer Responds!

    I havent bothered to read through all the posts, but anyway... Hammer being 'real' doesn't make him better than Jigga, Jigga 'selling out' doesn't make him worse than Hammer. I got a lotta respect for both guys, but if we're going straight battle/beef... is there even a contest? Jigga would rip Hammer to shreds. That diss is up there with Nas - Ether? Really? REALLY? Is it even a diss? Is there even a punchline? I like Hammer, don't get me wrong, but if Nas gets taken to the limit in a beef with Jigga, Hammers chances arent viewable. And I don't even like Jigga that much. Opinion drastically outweighs common sense sometimes on here, for real! I won't even go into how silly it is to say Jay and Em are overrated, when you're trying to put Hammer above or even close to them. Once again, I like Hammer, i think he's dope, but lets be 'real'.

    Da Rebirth - Airplanes (Remix)

    Appreciate the feedback and your honest opinion and advice about the track, AJ. I'm reasonably happy with it as a first recording, it wont be the final cut, it was pretty much just an experiment and attempt to find my flow/voice etc. For sure, I need to work on my mic presence and hopefully that'll come with time an effort, its weird how even though you're alone you still have to develop full confidence in your ability before you can let rip fully on the mic, its something I'm without doubt gonna work on. Thanks again for the opinion, bro, much appreciated.

    50 cent drops 50 pounds for new movie

    True dedication, wow! And not just the song, the whole album. Imma just say it, Fiddy was dope until he became part of Shady/Aftermath.
  15. Without sounding too patronising... I Told Ya So! Imma look like a complete knob if nothing comes of this now, haha. Fingers crossed, sounds dope!
  16. The Game's a beast man, he and Will on a track could work very well if the right subject matter is achieved. Looks cool, be interesting to see if this develops anymore.

    Did Eminem record a song with JJ+FP?

    The TRSS lyric is actually a diss to Eminem and props to Will, if you think about it. Em says he has to curse to sell records, basically saying, if he didnt put edge on his music, he woudlnt sell. Thats my take anyway. A collab about world issues between the 2 would be earth shaking for hip hop. If it ever happened, wow!

    Eminem - I'm Not Afraid

    Since Relapse every track I've heard him on has been a step in the right direction. I'm confident in saying, he's back!

    Eminem is the Artist of the Decade

    Regardless of how he fell off after MMLP, and how he's now rejuvinating his career, I struggle to find anyone else whose had the impact Em has on the industry over the last ten years. Like him or not, this guy has reshaped the music scene. Unquestionably.
