Jay Z vs Kanye West

I don't think it's as one sided (in favor of jay z) as most would think.

Kanye has 2, maybe 3 classic albums. Jay Z has the same IMO. Jay Z has way more material, but Kanye has more quality features and he is an outstanding producer.

However, I think Reasonable Doubt puts Jay on top, but barley.

What says the music board?

re: Jay Z vs Kanye West
I think Kanye is an atrocious rapper. I think Jay-Z is way overrated as a rapper, but still much better than Kanye.

Kanye is obviously a much better producer than Jay-Z.

I don't think Jay-Z has an album as good as "my beautiful dark twisted fantasy".

I think Jay-Z has more great tracks than Kanye. But I think a big reason for that is because he's been making music for longer.

I'm gonna use originality as the tiebreaker and give the nod to...

Kanye

Reasonable Doubt and The Blueprint are two of the greatest hip hop albums ever

Jay Z is higher in the rank of MCs than Kanye is in the rank of producers

I personally think Jay-Z is overrated as a rapper.

I agree with Nas that Eminem destroyed him on Renegade.

re: Jay Z vs Kanye West
Jay-Z is the winner here because his shitty verses >>>>>>>> Kanye's shitty verses. They both have some incredible verses, though obviously Jay-Z has more because of the length of his career, but Jay's work is of a consistently higher quality.

That's just strictly speaking from them as MCs. You can make an incredibly valid argument for Kanye as the better artist simply because of how fantastic he is as a producer and his willingness to do unorthodox shite and make it awesome.

Thats one song. "U Don't Know" is one of Hova's best songs and the beat (produced by Just Blaze) destroys anything Kanye has produced and is on the short list of greatest beats of all time.


eta: this version by Notorious BIG is simply insane and may be my favorite hip hop song ever
