Change is good, evolution is necessary. However not all things need reassignment. Some stuff in life is just fine the way it is.
Some time ago, everybody’s favorite drug dealing rapper, Jay-Z, released his 4:44 album. Though the album was scrutinized and highly criticized by the female listeners, for a lot of different reasons, it is still regarded as a milestone in rap music. To most people, it marked Jay-Z’s attempt at ushering in a more mature attitude towards the music. This wasn’t the first time a rapper attempted to crossover, but this isn’t just a rapper. It’s Jigga. And let’s be honest; what Jay-Z does we all follow. Overall, the album was basically Shawn Carter’s admission of having flaws and making his way through life as a man. 75% of Hiphopolis praised Jay-Z for his effort. And for what it’s worth, I predicted this album before it dropped.
