Hip-hop Hustler

Jay-Z is undoubtedly one of the slickest hustlers in the game. On his debut Reasonable Doubt, Jay spits rhymes like spending G’s. On the opener, “Can’t Knock the Hustle,” Jay flows like hustling is the only thing for a black man: “All us blacks got is sport and entertainment, until we even / Thievin’, as long as I’m breathin’ / Can’t knock the way a nigga eatin’—fuck you even.” In addition to his hustling tales—“Politics as Usual,” “Dead President 2,” “Can I Live”—Jay also reveals his battling potentials on “22 Two’s.” Throughout his career, Jay dropped anyone, including Mop Deep, 50 Cent and Nas, who had beef with him. Even Cam’ron wanted a piece of the action not too long ago, but Jay didn’t even bother to response. Besides the fact that Cam’s diss was weak, Jay knows damn well that he’s too good, and Cam simply can’t touch the hustler. Reasonable Doubt proves that Jay is the hip-hop’s kingpin who could “produce G’s like sperm.”
