I mean across all music and I would rank him comfortably over Biggie, pac, dre and cube. Was never much of a fan of cube and while I liked dre (he lived 2 streets over from me when I grew up) I was just more of an east coast guy. I like biggie and pac, but don't think they have the same depth of Jay.quote:Originally posted by snipes:quote:Originally posted by GlennK:

WOW. Everyone is certainly entitled to their opinions, but I've never been impressed with Jay-Z as an artist. I guess while I'm asking, do you mean in his genre or across all modern music?
I'm curious where would you rank Biggie, Pac, Dre and Cube in relation to Jay-Z from an artistic perspective? Personally I think JayZ is a better producer/entrepreneur type person than he is/was an artist.
To me, JayZ picked up the flag when the best of them were killed off in the 90s.
