Jay-Z v.s. Kanye discussion

THis has been done before so Ima ask this question

WHo’s better: Jay-Z or Kanye West

Both of these artists are living legends. As my question ask, who do you guys think is better?

You dont have to go by my suggestion topics but anyways Who better/has better:

1.Production sound
2.Meaning in music
5.out of the field performance (how they act off the mic)
6. their performance on WTT
7.Their girl (beyonce vs Kim)
8. Etc.

But for real, who would a better artist?

Jay will go down as an all-time great top 10 rappers of all time. You can’t say the same for Kanye in my opinion. I listen to more Kanye just because I personally like him more. But Jay-z has better meaning in music, lyricism, and isn’t a dick off the mic like Kanye is.

Production — Ye
Meaning in music — Jay
Lyricism — jay
Labels – Ye
Off the mic — Jay
WTT — Jay
Their girl — Beyonce

Although Kanye produces Jay outshines him lyrically and as an overall rapper, and when you add in Jay’s ear for beats and influence in the rap game it makes it pretty easy for me to decide

“Jay will go down as an all-time great top 10 rappers of all time.”

Hahahahahaha no he will not. ONLY to uninformed hip-hop fans. If you have Jay top 10 you don’t know what you’re talking about, period.

I personally wouldn’t have him in my top 50. Yes there are EASILY 50 artists with better lyricism/skill on the mic and discography combination.

This discussion is irrelevant because both are awful.

There is no Ye without Jay, hence Jay.

Looking at emcee skill, Jig beats Ye but his musical catalog doesn’t. It’s well known that starting around Hard Knock Life Jig started dumbing his shit down hardcore.

So, it really all depends on how you look at it, if we’re judging by disography, Ye.

If they battled, Jay would probably win.

Ye’s best album is only great because of production(IMO CD is his best album, MBDTF is overated as fuck)
Hov’s best is Reasonble Doubt and its pretty nice lyrically
Im gonna say Ye only because i prefer his music more than to Jays
