“I’m like fuck critics; you can kiss my whole asshole
If you don’t like my lyrics, you can press fast forward.” – Jay-Z
When reading a pathetic piece like Clive Davis’s “Hip-hop: 50 Cent Short of a Dollar,” I understand why Jigga disrespects critics, especially from an old, white, bigoted head who knows shit about the music. I don’t consider myself an expert in hip-hop, but anyone who only uses Black Eyed Peas, 50 Cent, and Kanye West to desecrate hip-hop is a joke. Mr. I-am-too-old-for-hip-hop should listen to lyricists like Rakim, 2pac, Biggie, Nas, Jay-Z, Common, and Ghostface before making such a foolish, generalized statement. Better yet, he should just stick to jazz, blues, and his Motown collections.
