Kanye, Nas and KRS – Better Than I’ve Ever Been

This is the Rick Rubin version with no Rakim verse. I haven’t really seen it posted as an mp3 anywhere so here you go.

    Lil Wayne idolizes Jay-Z. Jay-Z is Lil Waynes hero.

    Lil Wayne is Jay-Z’s #1 Fan

    ^

    Jay-Z idolized Nas….Nas is Jay-Z’s hero…

    Jay-Z is Nas’s #1 Fan.

    And thats real talk do your research, Who was calling who to be on who’s album (reasonable doubt)? Who was the one always giving props to Nas on his verses as one of the best rappers? (Jigga what?)

    Lil Wayne doesn’t even write his rhymes, he thinks them and spits them..ONE TAKES IT…He doesn’t even memorize and edit like Jay-Z does…because Jay-Z memorize and edits it…

    Ayoooooooo hoodtalk, come on chief, Wayne and Hov ain’t comparable, not even in the same league………..

    Who gives a fuck anyways, Biggie would lyrically stomp all over any of these muppets out now……..

  5. D.N.(The Kufi Smacker) Says:

    Actually i would probably say Biggie, Jaz-O, or Big Daddy Kane is who Jay would idolize, since his style reflects all three of theres in a certain way.

    Lil Wayne is terrible. I have no problems with punchline rappers, but Lil Wayne has become one(a terrible one even) he has NO substance in his music. His verses usually have nothing to do with the chorus. What the fuck does “moneys too long, so teachers put away your rulers” have to do with being the “Fireman”? And for the record, yes i have actually heard his music so i can judge(so if anyone asks, “if you think he’s garbage, then how do you know his lines?”) well….because i actually listen to the shit, not just skim through it.

    ^But you can’t deny what I just said about Jay praising Nas isn’t true, because it is true and well documented and even said out of Jay-Z’s mouth himself. Jay held Nas is high regards, maybe too much and that came back to haunt him in the end.

    O-U-T.

    Peace Made

    Jay idolised Biggie more than anyone and Biggie idolised Kane. Its a BK thang……

  9. D.N.(The Kufi Smacker) Says:

    To be honest i wouldn’t even put Wayne on 50’s level.

    “I’m innocent in my head, like a baby born dead
    Destination heaven
    Sittin politic with passengers from 911”

    I don’t care for much for 50 anymore, but i’ve never heard Wayne spit anything like those 3 50 lines from “Patiently Waiting”.

    Lil Wayne is overrated .

    ^^Co-sign…the best actual youngster (not Wayne’s middle aged ass) out now to me is Lupe by a long way……

    ZZZ… That Rakim verse was the best part of the whole track. Plus, without any disrespect to Rick Rubin, the Primo version knocked harder by a wide margin.
