His music obviously evolved with his life style.
Hood antics = life during the struggle, hoodrat sh*t, i.e. hard knock life
wealth and prosperity = songs about materialistic possessions i.e "Tom Ford"
Tf yall think he was supposed to do rap about a fake struggle?
If yall want the Jay who was tryin to make it, go listen to Reasonable Doubt
coming across as authentic =/= rhyming bout poverty

gtfoh with that retarded logic

He was materialistic on Reasonable Doubt too. I don't mind that.

So I don't want his old sh*t. I want some good sh*t. Something his new sh*t often lacks. 

clearly this is too difficult for some to grasp

Calm down with the condescension, it's all subjective... No one's opinion is the end all be all

Right? How this became about putting ppl in the hood down.

A lot jay fans might not be able to by tom ford but they understand substance. Rapping about your wife and kids, no one would be mad at him for that he would prob loose the 30 and younger crowd tho.

I hate when he jumps on a record with the hottest rapper at the time. He always sounds outta place I.e. don't kill my vibe

you can be insightful and wealthy
are people saying you can't?

i don't begrudge his wealth at all---it's outstanding
but it's a (w)rap for me regarding Jay w/any depth
i liked his album with Ye though


eta: I just remembered this

2013 Was The Year Of Cultural Appropriation


To be honest, 2013 was a tough year for black folks. Every year has its share of racist activity and bad news, but there was something about this year that made it seem like white people had set claims on aspects of black culture in ways they never had before. We'll admit, this isn't the first time (Elvis anyone?), and it certainly won't be the last, but it was quite possibly the most painfully obvious.

Every time we turned on the television, computer or radio, it seemed pop culture was saturated with songs, dances or trends that originated in the African-American community and all of a sudden people were praising and paying close attention to things that had existed for years.

So we decided to pull together all of the examples of things pop culture stole this year, from dances to music genres and even rappers themselves, not many things in black culture were safe this year.


Jay Z
AP
That's right folks, not only did Jay kick the hyphen in his name to the side, he did the same to the black community this year. The rapper-turned-mogul made it painfully obvious on his "Magna Carta Holy Grail" album that things have changed for him, from his days in Marcy Projects to buying Picasso paintings and Tom Ford suits. But he drove the nail in the coffin when he stood by his partnership with Barneys, after the high-end retailer was accused of racial profiling. The rap community declared the once celebrated MC dead inside, but not to worry, Sean Carter lives on through his business ventures.
