Yeah, I didn't quite understand the peers post either.
His peers proclaimed him as the GOAT, when blueprint came out. On top of that He told you why on the first verse of "What More Can I Say". I'll post it again
There's never been a **** this good for this long
This hood or this pop, this hot or this strong
With so many different flows, this one's for this song
He's telling you right here in the first line of the song why he is the greatest.
The next one I switch up, this one will get bit up
These fricks too lazy to make up shit: they crazy
They don't paint pictures, they just trace me
You know what? Soon they forget where they plucked
Their whole style from - then try to reverse the outcome
I'm like: "tough!"
He's telling 95% of these cats too lazy to be great. They find the hot style of the time and put they on lil spin on it. No originality, just a bunch of copycats jumping to the next hot thing.
'm not a biter, I'm a writer for myself and others
I say a B.I.G. verse, I'm only Bigging up my brother
Bigging up my borough --I'm big enough to do it
I'm that thorough, plus I know my own flow is foolish
So them rings and things you sing about, bring em out
It's hard to yell when the barrel's in your mouth
I love how Jay handles his critics, sweet and to the point.
