I hate the world "Sellout"!

Is it really “Selling Out” or is it hustling? When people say Jay-Z is a “Sell Out”, Its not true. He’s proven himself as one of the best, so if albums like Reasonable Doubt and The Blueprint and others of that sort aren’t enough then I’m confused. He’s making money and that is all that matters. He’s still making good music in the progress. Why do people use this term so much? Its really dumb.

I don’t think Jay-Z or anyone who just “makes it” is a sellout. When it comes to this term, I would go more for things like this:

they call him a sell out because he admitted to dumbing down his lyrics when he didnt even need to

Lol at saying Ice Cube is a sell out. Sorry that when he is over 40 years old he’s not going to act like a gangster and talk about selling drugs.

Sell-out is term to describe people who voluntary dumb their lyrics (unintelligent lyrics to target a larger fan base ).Jay-Z is called sell out cuz he’s lazy (see the rhyme)and just produce music for cash and not to be consider the best.
Now you can have your own opinion on him and say that he isn’t.

People point out Cube’s movie career, yet ignore his newer stuff. “Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It” is a damn near classic track, and it came out on 08

If anything grown-up family man Ice Cube making family-friendly movies is the polar opposite of “selling out”. We always want rappers to talk what they live, I guarantee you that Ice Cube’s life today is a hell of a lot more like “Are We There Yet” than “Boyz N Tha Hood”
