He did it again. No, not “Yeezus“. His “Big Brother“, Hov. Jay-Z continued his career long habit of jump in the way of “his” artist. Even though, Kanye was never his signee (Dame Diddy), Yeezy was always under his wing. Let’s be clear, Kanye West’s new album Yeezus is wack.
I don’t want to hear that misunderstood genius sh*t. That album is dog sh*t. My issue with it is mostly lyrical, but nevertheless, trash is trash. That aside, he barely had time to work the project before we got that long a$$ Jay-Z/Samsung commercial promoting his new album…dropping in about a week! Talk about stealing whatever momentum Kanye had.
I mean, yeah Kanye’s album wasn’t the greatest but it kept people talking and/or debating. A new Jay-Z album erased that. In some cases, it helped to point out the faults in Kanye’s latest. What makes things worst is, Magna Carta Holy Grail basically has 3 launches. The “exclusive” launch for Samsung users, the leak launch (Thought ya’ll would be 1st, GTFOH), and then the usual Tuesday launch for the rest of ya’ll. That means that Jay-Z’s momentum won’t slow anytime soon.
Jay has done this to Yeezy before, and forget about them Bleek days. It’s just wack sometimes. It’s called competing when he does it to a rival rapper, but when you do it to the homies….it’s called cockblocking.
P.S. J. Cole just dropped a new (dope) album too. smh…
