    By a long shot...
  • Re: Who is the GOAT Muslim\5%er rapper?

    Lol Bruh Rakim already said that Allah is the one who he praise to the fullest. He is a real muslim whatever you tryin to say.

    "Who Is God?" is essentially the closest thing you can get to a five percenter manifesto in rap. He's unequivocally a five percenter, at least as expressed in his music. The song ultimately concludes that "we" are God. ALLAH is Man. (Arm-Leg-Leg-Arm-Head). This is actually kind of blasphemy in Islam, although Rakim does suggest a basis for this claim in both the Bible and the Qu'ran. He also suggests that we're essentially stardust, i.e. the Sun, Moon, and Stars, which can be likened to the same idea by theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss. The song's whole structure is informed by Supreme Mathematics. No mention of Mohammad, 72 virgins, afterlife, sharia law, etc. It's pure 5 percenter metaphysics.

    Anyways, my top 5 five percenter MCs (designated by five percenter lyrical content):

    1. Rakim
    2. Jay Electronica
    3. Method Man
    4. Raekwon
    5. Ghostface Killah

    Nas drops five percenter lines every now and then to sound slick, but his overall lyrical content strikes me as mostly Christian, maybe even borderline agnostic.

  • Re: The Official Battle Rap Thread: KOTD MASSacre UPDATES (F OTVBA.. w/e, I was actually there)

    Nothing wrong with working at foot locker while doing battle rap as far as I'm concerned. Like anything, you just need to know how to spin the angle if someone comes at you in battle (like Serius did with the barber line).
  • Re: The Official Jay-Z's "Tidal" Streaming Service Thread

    I just copped Tidal. I'm a fan, but I'm a huge audiophile so I'm exactly the market for this kind of thing. I haven't decided whether I'll shell out $20 a month for it though. But in terms of the 30 day trial, I'm very happy with the service. It has most, if not all of the features of Spotify.

    I still have Spotify though. We'll see how it goes. I think it might be better if they could bring the price down to at least 13.99 or something like that. I can justify bumping up a few dollars more to give up Spotify for hi fidelity sound, but I'm not sure that I'm gaining that much in the jump from 320 kb/s on Spotify premium to lossless on Tidal for another $10 a month. I say that as a full blown audiophile with very expensive audio equipment.

    Again, you a artist. You're biased, embarassingly so. What is an artist who doesnt share music? If he aint here to profit from music the fuk is he here for?

    WE giveth and taketh away. He had next bc WE said he did. So now if we say fuk em, its fuk em. Ask Ja rule, ask 50 post Massacre, ask Dr Dre w/ Detox, ask Nastradamus era Nas, ask post Vol 1, sunshine Jay z

    And if u wanna look from the other end of the spectrum, ask Papose Nacirema Dream, ask Saigon Greatest Story...any angle u look dawg, history dont lie. The nggas is not above completely vanishing from relevancy even when he choose he wants it

    Those rappers are for profit. Jay Elect just got done shooting an experimental film of him traveling to obscure countries and helping the poor, or some shit. Dude's priorities are nowhere near a Dr. Dre, Ja Rule or 50 Cent.

    This whole "I got next" shit is bogus. I mean if Jay Elect doesn't release an album soon, so what? It's not that serious. It's not like I'm gonna be like "Fuck you I ain't going to listen to your shit if it comes out in 2020." Like, why? Lol. He doesn't owe me shit. He's been giving me free music for the better part of a decade. I can't really complain.

    The artist mindset is 'man i got this fire, once they hear it they'll love me'. Man fuk your fire. An artist is NOTHING without fan connection. NOTHING. Fans will run thru a wall for artists who they see and feel love this shyt: spitta, wayne, jay w/ albums every year, z ro, etc. He bout to learn.

    Those are fickle fans. The real fans will be there. Jay comes across like a lazy bum, and yea it's funny and even frustrating, but if he drops a classic in 2030, I'll be there. What can I say? I'm a fan.
