It's hard to say. Cause you got two emcees that I would like Will to work with. I think it would be awsome to see Rakim and Mos Def do a remix to Lost and Found. But I guess I go with Rakim. :thumb: :kool:

I don't think Jay-Z could come close to these conscious lyrics of Rakim, I never heard him spit somethin' as deep as "Follow The Leader", that song could come out today 'cause the rhyme structure's timeless too:

Verse One:

Follow me into a solo

Get in the flow - and you can picture like a photo

Music mixed mellow maintains to make

Melodies for MC's motivates the breaks

I'm everlastin, I can go on for days and days

With rhyme displays that engrave deep as X-rays

I can take a phrase that's rarely heard, FLIP IT

Now it's a daily word

I can get iller than 'Nam, a killin bomb

But no alarm - Rakim will remain calm

Self-esteem make me super superb and supreme

But for a microphone still I fiend

This was a tape I wasn't supposed to break

I was supposed to wait, but let's motivate

I want to see who can keep followin and swallowin

Takin the making, bitin it and borrowin

Brothers tried and others died to get the formula

But I'ma let ya sweat - you still ain't warm

You a step away from frozen, stiff as if ya posin

Dig into my brain as the rhyme gets chosen

So follow me and were ya thinkin' you were first?

Let's travel at magnificent speeds around the Universe

What could ya say as the Earth gets further and further away

Planets are small as balls of clay

Astray into the Milky Way - world's outasight

Far as the eye can see - not even a satellite

Now stop and turn around and look

As ya stare in the darkness, ya knowledge is took!

So keep starin soon ya suddenly see a star

You better follow it cause it's the R

This is a lesson if ya guessin and if ya borrowin

Hurry hurry step right up and keep followin

The Leader

Verse Two:

This is a lifetime mission, vision of prison

Aight listen

In this journey you're the journal I'm the journalist

Am I Eternal? Or an eternalist?

I'm about to flow long as I can possibly go

Keep ya movin cause the crowd said so

Dance - cuts rip ya pants

Eric B on the blades, bleedin to death - call the ambulance

Pull out my weapon and start to squeeze

A magnum as a microphone murderin' MC's

Let's quote a rhyme from a record I wrote

(follow the leader) Yeah - dope

Cause everytime I stop it seems ya stuck

Soon as ya try to step off ya self-destruct

I came to overcome before I'm gone

By showin and provin and lettin knowledge be born

Then after that I'll live forever - you disagree?

You say never? Then follow me!

From century to century you'll remember me

In history - not a mystery or a memory

God by nature, mind raised in Asia

Since you was tricked, I have to raise ya

From the cradle to the grave, but remember

You're not a slave

Cause we was put here to be much more than that

But we couldn't see it because our mind was trapped

But I'm here to break away the chains, take away the pains

Remake the brains, reveal my name

I guess nobody told you a little knowledge is dangerous

It can't be mixed, diluted; it can't be changed or switched

Here's a lesson if ya guessing and borrowing

Hurry hurry, step right up and keep following

The leader

Verse Three:

A furified freestyle, lyrics of fury

My third eye makes me shine like jewelry

You're just a rent-a-rapper, your rhymes are minute-maid

I'll be here when it fade to watch you flip like a renegade

I can't wait to break and eliminate

On every traitor or snake - so stay awake

and follow and follow, because the tempo's a trail

The stage is a cage, the mic is a third rail

I'm Rakim the Fiend of a Microphone

I'm not HIM, so leave my mic alone

Soon as the beat is felt, I'm ready to go

So fasten your seatbelt, cause I'm about to flow

No need to speed slow down to let the leader lead

Word to daddy, indeed!

The R's a rollin stone, so I'm rollin

Directions is told, then the rhymes are stolen

Stop buggin', a brother said, dig em, I never dug 'em

He couldn't follow the leader long enough so I drug 'em

into danger zone, he should arrange his own

Face it, it's basic, erase it, change ya tone

There's one R in the alphabet

It's a one-letter word and it's about to get

More complex from one rhyme to the next

Eric B be easy on the flex

I've been from state to state, followers tailgate

Keep comin but you came too late, but I'll wait

So back up, regroup, get a grip, come equipped

You're the next contestant - clap ya hands, you won a trip!

The price is right - don't make a deal too soon

How many notes could you name this tune?

Follow the Leader is the title, theme, task

Now ya know, you don't have to ask

Rap is Rhythm And Poetry, cuts create sound effects

You might catch up if you follow the records E. wrecks

Until then keep eatin and swallowin

You better take a deep breath and keep followin

The leader.

Wait I misread the Title. I thought You meant ANY track ON Lost and FOund, no the Track itself...

Still not changing what I've said earlier, but on that particular track, it'd be Mos Def.

I think Jay-Z has a lot of skills, but you just can't compare him to Rakim or LL, that's like comparing Lebron James and Vince Carter to Michael Jordan, it's a whole another level with Rakim and LL as far as clutchness is concerned, Jay-Z has potential to get there if he starts rhyming about more intelligent things, he's a lot like Eminem, Em has skills too, but what he rhymes about is meaningless now, he needs to step it up before he could get on FP's level.

Rakim should have done something with JJ+FP years ago. When i look at that list, Jay-Z just stands out. Even if his 1st album was good, 1 album dosn't stand up the entired careers like LL and Rakim have. And Mos Def runs circles around Jay-Z easily.

how can u people say Jay-Z? he's part of what's wrong with the game right now, altho nothing compared 2 other people out there

How is Jay-Z part of what's wrong with the game right now? Jay has done but stayed true to who he is, and how he came up. He has one of the best flows in the game right now, hell, his lyrics are up to par - Jay has never disrespected Hip Hop in no form or fashion, and is now President of Def Jam. It's either blatant hate or just a blindless to what you listen to.

In the words of Jay himself, "Do you listen to music, or do you just skim through it"

Basically every album Rakim has dropped is a classic, "Reasonable Doubt" is Jay-Z only legitamate classic, Will needs to work with legends  like himself not inconsistant mcs 'cause he's a legend and Jay-Z ain't on their level, even though he doesn't suck as bad as most rappers now, he's retrired now anyway. Mos Def only released 2 albums in 6 years. even though they're both hot, he has to put more work in. I wouldn't mind if Jay-Z or Mos Def did a song with Will but I'm anticipating a collabo with LL and Rakim more than those 2.

btw, these lines could be used to diss Jay-Z:

"Truck with rims, check

Champange Bottles, check

Throwback jerseys, check

Lots of models, damn that's the list for 90% of your videos and songs

Am I wrong?"

That's actually online towards what Nas said in "Ether"

"Y'all deal with emotions like bitches

What's sad is I love you 'cause you're my brother

You traded your soul for riches"

Um...1, Jay is never seen with a truck with rims in his video, Jay doesn't wear throwbacks, hasn't worn a Throwback since Blueprint, if you seen a Jay video, he barely has women in it, unless it caters to the song (Dirt Off My Shoulder, and Excuse Me Miss, etc.)

Like I said, too many hate on Jay for no reason whatsoever, and as far as the classic comment? Wrong again, Jay has Reasonable Doubt, Blueprint and Black Album, his albums (outside of The Dynasty) have all been above average.

Like I said, the blatant hate for Jay, especially when, like I said before, especially when he's been true to himself as an emcee, and has not changed since the day his first album dropped (Except for his subject matter, but you cant speak on the same thing forever, you change, you grow up)

Ya'll seriously need to stop being such hip hop purist, and like an artist for what they give you, ESPECIALLY if that artist is being himself and not just doing what sells.

And I'm sorry to anyone that said Jay can't be compared to LL, LL had his time, that time has passed. LL's last two albums, are PRIME EXAMPLE of someone doing WHAT sells blatantly. The album before that, G.O.A.T also shows that LL is reaching hard as hell to prove that he still has his 'street cred', even though its hard to even take him serious with it.

:werd:

There is to much hate on this board when it comes to Jay-z! He's in my list of fav rappers! Check out Reasonable Doubt, The Blueprint and The Black Album! This guy has skills! It would be dope if he did a remix to that song with Will, especially cuss he had nothing but love for the album when it first dropped!

Ok i have an idea...Will should do 2 remixes to L&F one with Rakim & Mos Def and one with Jay-Z...that's the best way to satisfy his fans! :dancingcool:

LL is at peace with himself now, he don't have to battle other rappers now if he don't want to, but if anyone comes after him, he could still end their careers. Did you actually listen to his last 2 albums? Even his worst albums "14 Shots To The Dome" and "10" are above average, he never came out with a garbage album. He still has a lot of skill left, "Feel The Beat" has more punchlines than Jay-Z' whole catalog in my opinion and how the hell could Jay-Z beat LL when he can't even beat Nas? :

Uh yes yes y'all feel the beat y'all

Freak freak y'all

You don't stop

Uh yes yes y'all feel the beat y'all

Freak freak y'all

You don't stop

[VERSE 1]

When Def Jam signed me

They hit the lottery

It wasn't free but don't call it a robbery

They underestimated me quite possibly

It's like that when you a godfather B

I'm the greatest of all time

You heard that before

But now when I say it

It means so much more

Cause It's so true

No hype man, No crew

No reason for ghost writers

Every year I get tighter

Mothers and daughters agree I'm on fire

Check ya T-Mobile it's all over the wire

Cross ya legs baby hide ya desire

You think I'm hot

You preaching to the choir

Smiling and giggling

Thirsting like Gilligan

More flavor than cinnamon

They rush with adrenaline

I make 'em nervous

I do it on purpose

I come back hotter

Every time I resurface

Drop to ya knees baby

Praise the king

Now ask Russell Simmons

Who built the west wing

I ain't gotta be cocky

I do the damn thing

Paint ya girl with strawberry frosting

Internationally known and respected

You talk slick I'm too large to be affected

You crank call my cells disconnected

You keep slipping but my games perfected

[HOOK]

Uh yes yes y'all feel the beat y'all

Freak freak y'all

You don't stop

Uh yes yes y'all feel the beat y'all

Freak freak y'all

You don't stop

Uh yes yes y'all feel the beat y'all

Freak freak y'all

You don't stop

Uh yes yes y'all feel the beat y'all

Freak freak y'all

You don't stop

[VERSE 2]

I'm a star for real my aura is crazy

Hollywood love me in the streets I'm gravy

Born with a gift to inspire the hood

You wanna out do me and I wish you would

I'm the master separate from all these cats

I'm laughin in '86 I balled like that

Honey catching feeling from sittin in Maybachs

Cause her project hall is smelling like Ajax

That's understandable but everybody relax

Hate when folk get money and don't know how to act

I'm a multi millionaire homey that's a fact

But it's not the ice that makes ya wife react

Been had an entourage and platinum cards

Been getting swedish massage in Boca Raton

What you think all them years I ain't pop no Don

Spend a night in Trump Towers with a blue eyed blonde

I been did it all my Benzes was kitted

When you talk like a baller you tickle me with it

But yeah there's money out there come on lets get it

But I'm a get it in such a way you never forget it

Let's go twenty platinum albums in a row

Sixty thousand fans a three hour show

I could care less who drop and blow

My name is LL baby that's beyond the flow

[HOOK]

Uh yes yes y'all feel the beat y'all

Freak freak y'all

You don't stop

Uh yes yes y'all feel the beat y'all

Freak freak y'all

You don't stop

Uh yes yes y'all feel the beat y'all

Freak freak y'all

You don't stop

Uh yes yes y'all feel the beat y'all

Freak freak y'all

You don't stop

[VERSE 3]

These rap cats get upset with me

When security clear out the V.I.P

If honey wanna lounge we gone see ID

Ain't no negotiating you gone pay my fee

I'm the boss I call the shots to keep it hot

I don't have competition I'm bigger than the slot

While you waste advances on grey market rocks

I cop municipal bonds and Wal Mart stocks

A family man but hard as a rock

And I die for my kids so stay off my block

They might be impressed with you but I'm not

After all these years I still walk with a bop

Still keep the ink hot

Still scheme like a fox

Still ready to battle

You don't want your career stopped

Industry shocked cause I mapped out a plot

And ran around humble with my joint on cock

[HOOK]

Uh yes yes y'all feel the beat y'all

Freak freak y'all

You don't stop

Uh yes yes y'all feel the beat y'all

Freak freak y'all

You don't stop

Uh yes yes y'all feel the beat y'all

Freak freak y'all

You don't stop

Uh yes yes y'all feel the beat y'all

Freak freak y'all

You don't stop

After hearing all the crap on the radio, how could honestly say LL's washed up? :hilarious: I wasn't gonna say anymore, but you gotta respect LL for what's he's done, it's not like Jay-Z' gonna still put out a great album 10 years from now, LL probably still will be putting out more great albums as long as he's still living, stop hating on the legends.
