“Greatest To Ever Do It – Hands Down”

Wale vädrar sina tankar om Jay-Z!



Under gårdagen firade Jay-Z ett 15-årsjubileum då det var på dagen för releasen av “Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life”.


I en artikel på XXLmag.com intervjuades Wale om betydelsen av skivan för honom och han lät lovorden hagla:


Jay Z? Greatest to ever do it—hands down. No debate. If you debate you’re really just mad. You got some kinda inner joint, but he knows it though. I think that’s the greatest thing about knowing him is like, being around somebody who knows. It’s just like when Steve Young learned from Joe Montana.


I remember hearing it on PGC long ago. I think I was in middle school, eighth [grade] or something like that, and I remember listening to that joint, and I just remember “Hard Knock Life” being on the radio, and I was just like, “Yo, I’ve never heard anything like this ever.” Ever! Like, that hook [“Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)”], I didn’t even really know what it was saying, but that mothafucka was so cold, man.


I just think it was a different time. You can’t even really rate no more ’cause the scale have just went like that. That would be considered a backpack record right now. Process that. Like, that would be considered an outright backpack record. No street niggas would rap on that right now. Not one. That was his most selling album ’cause of that song! ’Cause niggas wasn’t buying singles, like a lot of mothafuckas was like, “I wanna hear the Annie song.” And the album—that album was dark. Money, cash, hoes and all that.
