I'm not that into Hip Hop, but man I love Jay Z.
Straight up might not be everyone's thing, but I don't think the 'king of rap' should be anything but straight up.
As a modern fan I can respect that and I do know where you are comming from. Personally my preferences aren't straight up but for the title he is. His beats that he drops are fast and agressive and I do see where you are comming from.
I am more of an Eminem dude....ok I love Eminem. He has mixtures of everything and is just straight up and down to Earth. Only con is his mentor and fellow partner.... 50Cent and Dr.Dre both of which I enjoy listening to for some of their songs..., but it's their celebrity line's and the bias'es that case me a headache. IT is a head-fi bias and stereotypical nature to just outright bash beats. But it does get annoying for me as a person as I see them everywhere looking all smug and stuff. I will admit that I am an angsty dude.
Anyway, Dr.Dre has done some good things for the audio industry and has even been known to have used M50's to produce some of his work.
