What Jay needs to do is sell his secret on being 50 years old and having hair that grows so long and thick. Most men his age hair is thinning but not Jay.

Nice to see Kraftwerk get some praise, they were huge in 80s and certainly Gil Scott-Heron earned his spot in the Hall of Fame, as well as LL & Billy Preston.

Congrats to some of the honorees.

10:44 Since Jay Z got in on his first year eligible while Tina Turner just getting inducted as a solo artist, it's looking like Kodak Black will be inducted before Chaka.

I'm tired of these coveted spots being bought by the highest bidder.

Yassssss @ LL Cool J getting in. I give no fux about Jay.

Wow, Jay Z must be paying someone BIG TIME. No way is his contribution to music on any level of LL Cool J's or Kraftwerks. Shame money buys you souch influence.

Fuck this Camel and his Basquiat Lacefront Wig!!! said...

Jay Z contributed nothing to hip hop but shallow capitalism, narcissism, greed, colorism, and a harem of talentless light skin whores (even though Rita Whora can sing a bit) and a failing music label. He just sucked the right dicks and fucked the right bussy, killed the right people, and kissed the right white asses to get to his level.

He couldn't even sell out shows without more talented people. Say what y'all want about Kanye but Kanye was ALWAYS more superior in talent than Camel and easier on the eyes. Yes Kanye is a trash ass, sellout, Trump ass licking, downlow, sunken place, maniac. HOWEVER that does not mean the the man ain't talented. Jay-Z Camel ass couldn't even sell out concerts, sell records, and earn his "billions" without biting off of Kanye and his own wife Beyonce. Beyonce sold out over him. Kanye had the highest grossing tour for a rapper over him and it was well deserved because he's a great live performer. Add Linkin Park, Eminem (I hate him but still), Amy Winehouse, and Mary J Blige, and Alicia Keys---JayZ had to rely on them to sell tickets.

JAY-Z COULD NEVER SELL OUT WITH A SOLO TOUR. No one cared to see his ugly face, bubble lips, hear his whiny rapping voice, and hear him brag about his "billions", his stocks and bonds, his friendships with old, crusty, demonic White men, his allegiance to Lucifer and Aleister Crowley, all while throwing up the 'Roc'/Thelema hand sign. He can't even perform without sunglasses because he knows the ticket sales would drop because no one can stomach that much ugliness on stage for hours!!

How the FUCKKKKKK is this ugly burnt nigga in the rock n roll hall of fame??? That's right he bought it. Fuck this glorified high school dropout!!! He better enjoy being the White billionaires pet Negro because he's day is coming.

Fuck Jay-Z! That Rock N Roll Hall of Fame award should be given to DMX instead. DMX warned us about this ugly nigga!

His fucking hair looks disgusting and stank. Our ancient ancestors the Babylonians, Kemetians, Kushites, and others all wore locs and it was neat and maintained. I don't know who told these raggedly, homeless, vagrant looking fools this was the look. That shit looks like it has bugs in it. I will never understand the mofo's, thinking this fucked up unkempt ass mess is somehow cultural. He looks a hot stank mess, Beyonce need to take that root off his ass, so he can get that mess cut off his head. I fight with my teen daughter weekly, if you are not going to maintain your locs, cut those bitches off, you will not walk next to me in public with my locs nicely groomed looking like some homeless vagrant, at least the homeless has an excuse why they look a hot matted mess.

Right, exactly. Whenever he's involved, an event is somehow cheapened because it's obvious he paid someone to get bumped up a spot. His involvement ruins it and it just doesn't feel the same. Is he the type of person who feeds off of congratulations? Or is he competing with someone? I can never understand how an individual can receive something that's equivalent to a participation trophy, yet can believe somehow it's an accomplishment. Baffling!

This shit is disappointing.

Yall in these comments lying. Jay Z sold out Barclays every night with no special guest.

Anonymous said...

@12:12

He probably saw LL's name and damn near had a stroke. LL was a better rapper, had a nice reputation, and he was sexy and more talented. He just doesn't have Jay-Z money but that's okay. Having more money doesn't always equal more talented.

DMX died and now his enemy is getting this award. I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist but this is fishy. After DMX died, his name is in the news about buying his masters and giving it to his kids. That turned out to be a fluke. Now this. What kind of hoodoo did Camel have done???

Fuck this Camel and his Basquiat Lacefront Wig!!! said...

@12:17

Didn't he own a percentage of Barclay's? And Barclay's is only one venue. He needed his wife to sell out more places. Please stop. NYC is devoted to this ugly nigga. They would defend him if he murdered children and laughed about it. HE NEEDED HIS WIFE TO SELL OUT IN WORLDWIDE.

And Snitch known they wrong for using Jay-z as the headline, lol!! Tina Turner should be in the headline, but we all know she deserves it. Jay-Z is more of a hot topic, because we all know that he does not.

Yall can clown Hovys hair but yall can't clown his catalog.

Phuk them and their award. White people are the ones who need it. We don't. We know we rule music while they're always playing catch up.

Jay Z’s talent and contribution to music is undeniable. Hate does not overshadow his talent and business savvy. He deserves it. Lots of albums, hits, milestones and he changed the game in so many ways. I respect and admire Jay-Z for dropping the Blueprint. It took the Grey album with Dangermouse before he earned my solid support and I went back and combed through his entire catalog and he is one of the best to ever do it. We should all be thanking him for The Blueprint. The game he dropped in that album alone is enough for him to be inducted. He is heads and shoulders above most of his peers #facts. The growth and maturity is obvious. He and Kanye together - just bananas with the beats and bars. Such a good and iconic time in hip-hop. Regardless of all the personal bullsh!t, Hov is the truth when it comes to that mic.

Anonymous said...

@10:17 Nah hommie. What game did he drop?? Niggas is still broke and he had to sell out to be where he is? His whole career is a lie and his songs are corny! OK the only song worth listening to is Can't Knock the Hussle...

Jay Z is one of the best to ever do it.
Y'all seriously sounds like white racists.
Why do we always hate top tier black excellence?
Oh wait....I know why #HATERS

Anonymous said...

@12:24 Because all that top tier Black Excellence shit is fake phony BS!! The nigga is greedy and a boot lickin coon and a studio gangster and a soft ass nigga. FAKE FAKE FAKE!

You sound like a white racist! FOH, he is not any better than anyone. There are other black rappers who do it much much MUCH better. Jay-Z is not a real artist. No real heart with it. I can sense his wannabe thirsty vibez from a million miles away. NEVER liked him. He only fools niggas deep into white thought or trying to understand it.

Nor is he the best black entrepreneur. There are far far better black men that do that waaaaay better and without screwing over and stabbing people in the back.

Wow 3 paragraphs to disparage a black man who gives back to the community and has a black wife.
Sad.

Did any proof - pics, evidence of any kind accompany the lawsuit? Because those are serious allegations.
