Just read a magazine that fucked up my day
How you rate music that thugs with nothing relate to it
How can the critics rate his music when they haven’t even been through what he’s been through? Go a day in his shoes and then you can critique.
Critics aren’t in the right position to write about his work- he raps for “thugs with nothing”, people growing up in the same situation as him, and for those who understand him.
In a way this also applies to a lot of the people who dismissed Jay’s verse here in favour of Eminem’s: Jay talks from his “ghetto point of view”, and others might not be able to see through his eyes.
