Even my old fans like "old man just stop"
I could if I would but I can't, I'm hot
The rap game is normally seen as a young man’s game, due to the fact that older rappers have trouble keeping up with or adapting to new changes and trends within the industry, and often end in middling results for those trying to adapt to new styles.
Jay-Z, now age 43, has had longevity far past what would be the norm of most musicians. With the success and revenue he’s still raking in after nearly 30 years in the game, there shouldn’t be a reason for him to quit now!
Also interesting to note that he routinely references Basquiat and his tag ‘SAMO’ (same old shit) in a song that addresses the fact that he still has drive and can’t stop even is people think he is too old — everyone is creating the same old shit so the game needs him.
