Ok here we go. recently Jay and Rae released 2 long awaited albums Jay-z with The Blueprint 3 and Raekwon with Only Built for Cuban Links pt.II. Now every since their release, we here at HHTT have had an ongoing discussion about these two albums. it seems that whenever we discuss hip hop or lyricists this topic finds its way into the mix. Often this arguement can go on for long periods of time especially when BROTHER MENELIK gets goin against socialite sounds/nite people’s very own YOHON DI. Which, by the way, you can catch this discussion and many more live on the radio Friday nights from 10pm-12am on 91.3 fm Selective Hearing or stream it live from your computer at WWW.WCUW.ORG just click listen now. So im taking it upon myself to get you involved. Please let us know what you think, MENELIK who is very partial to the gritty drug rap, which no one does better than RAEKWON

and YOHON is partial to jay-z for his track record and ability to move the crowd….So which album is better? Is RAE better cuz he kept it hood and brought back that 95 feel (the golden era of hip hop) wit a sick ass flo? Or is Jay-Z better cuz he has remained consistant over the last 10/13 years and can MC (move the crowd) at a moments notice?
