The Curious Case Of Shawn Carter: 5 Reasons Hov Should Retire From Rap

8 years ago view-show 7,549,542

the curious case of shawn carter took an unexpected turn last week. jay z, probably the best rapper to ever touch a microphone, had a senior moment during a concert at manchester. this is a telling sign of a rapper not long for this stage.

 


 
what you just viewed was a flash-forward to jay’s late stage career, where he’ll headline the bellagio and the mgm grand 6 nights a week to sold-out audiences every time, and lyric lapses like this one will be common, and met with a wry smile and a ‘wasn’t he great then?’ on a 30th Wedding Anniversary date. those tickets are queued up now and would sell out if released today.
 
that familiar hov deserves a nod, at that. he was great. but like all great things, gravity will shrivel him up and the earth will suck him into its core like the very mortal that he is. as one-time competitor and friend b.i.g. noted “n*ggas bleed just like us” so the jay-hovah mythology just isn’t enough to keep him away from decrepitude, or the steadily emanating scent of rap decay. the situation is critical.
 
here are the 5 reasons hov should hang it up before he suffers a wizards-like career-ending footnote.

  1. Jay-Z retired along with The Black Album, at the top. He came out of retirement to do the god-awful Kingdom Come. He should have retired along with the Black album.

  2. THIS IS WORK OF A TROLL WRITER WITH NO INTERESTING IDEAS. TALENTLESS PEOPLE ASKING THE TALENTED TO RETIRE…GTFOH
