Jay-Z has returned to rap game with a very interesting album. The “4:44” album has proven to be a critically acclaimed work from Jay-Z that examines his personal life and things that he has experienced as he transitions from a young rapper with drug tells to an older mogul that is now a husband and a father.
Jay Z hits deep as he goes over things like infidelity, trust issues and other issues that have occurred in his life in recent years. He really gives consumers of his music a great perspective on how he has grown as an artist and a person. He is nominated for Grammys for album of the year, and it appears that he is one of the best contenders when it comes to these type of awards even though he is older than a lot of his competition. Jay-Z have proven over the years that he is consistent, and this is another point where he is getting accolades for his work.
There is a strong amount of interest in this album even though it is one of the shortest albums that Jay-Z has created. He worked closely with Kanye West mentor No ID to bring this album to life.
There is a great backline story from producer No ID about how he did not initially even want to work on this album. He has created a masterpiece when it comes to instrumental loops and samples, but it was a hard road to conceptualize what tracks would actually make the album. No ID actually put together as many as 500 Beats. Jay-Z would have to sort through tons of beats that were already created by this album.
Jay-Z considered many beats.
“4:44” album is something of a classic when one considers his catalog.
The West Coast is well-known for being a haven for some of the most talented hip hop artists of all time. We know about Snoop Dog and Kendrick Lamar, but there are some new artists emerging on the scene. Boogie is the latest West Coast rapper to take charge of the microphone. He was signed to Shady Records back in October. It’s reasonable to say that Eminem has an eye for great lyrical talent.
Shady Records is home to other gifted emcees like Yelawolf, but Boogie has a special talent. It’s really difficult to find a rapper that performs with grace and power. This is the main reason why many insiders believe he is the best artist on the label.
Eminem has high expectations for his new artist. He stated that Boogie is everything that he wants out of an emcee. This is high praise from a hip hop legend that has dominated the scene for years. Boogie’s ability to spit bars with rare words can impress anyone. He’s a concert promoter’s dream.
Boogie expressed he feels pressure working under Eminem. However, he also stated that he’s using that pressure to motivate him. Boogie is well-known for having great work ethic. He spends hours of his time perfecting his craft in the studio. He knows this is the only way he will be able to excel in this competitive industry.
You can see Boogie’s passion for his art when he takes the microphone. He understands that his commitment to the game will help him go far. He enjoys rapping about the events that are taking place in our society. It’s fair to say that he’s conscious about their effects. Boogie’s career can go far if he stays focused and committed to the game.
The famous pop singer, Pink, has recently been discussed by The Huffington Post news outlet for consideration of a new R&B album. The singer originally became famous as a result of a hit single released by Laface Records, which was entitle “There You Go.” The song immediately topped the Billboard Charts and Pink was featured as an up and coming R&B artist. When discussing her career, however, Pink stated that the R&B vocals came at the urging of her label’s founder, L. A. Reed. Pink had no real passion for the music featured on her first R&B album, “Can’t Take Me Home.” It wasn’t until recently, after the famous singer had released 6 albums with nearly 30 number 1 hit Pop singles, that she finally became intrigued with R&B music again and is willing to create music in the genre.
Pinks newest album, “Beautiful Trauma” is described as an angry letter to the American government and other powerful individuals. The singer is reportedly seeking to influence the political discourse though one of the most powerful mediums in human history, which is music. Pink revealed that she believes that the pen she writes her lyrics with is as powerful a weapon as any, and she hopes to influence ordinary citizens to fight against perceived oppression, whether or not it exists.
Pink’s consideration of developing music that fits a new genre comes on the heels of her success with her latest album. Now that she has released her first album in 5 years, the singer expects to enter a period of new music development. She admits that she is not willing to develop albums at the rate she did before her daughter was born, but also wrestles with her desire to create meaningful art on a consistent basis. The singer announced that her decision about the development of the new album will be evident in coming months.
Jay-Z has a lot of fans. He is one of the most prolific rappers around, and people still want to know more about his life. Fortunately, Jay-Z has been more than kind enough to actually tell fans what they wanted to know. Jay-Z has had a lot of time to think about what he did in his marriage, and he wanted to express what he was going through in song. It is true that a marriage is only between a man and a woman. Their business is not anything that anybody else really has to know.
The trouble with this theory is that Jay-Z and Beyonce live in the spotlight. There was already a leaked TMZ elevator video that show Beyonce’s sister Solange kicking Jay-Z with Beyonce standing by and doing nothing. This will be the thing that set off all kind of sparks about the possibility of a failing marriage. This was years ago. Beyonce would eventually take to the stage herself to address in music form.
It would only be a matter of time before Jay-Z would have to speak up and say something because it had become the elephant in the room for his career. The
“4:44” album would bring all of this to life. Jay would get the help of a longtime producer and friend No ID, and this would be the first time that Jay-Z would work exclusively with a single producer.
This would become quite a interesting collaboration between the two, and the album would prove to be one of the hottest things in 2017 so far. Jay-Z has done an exceptional job of bringing a raw emotion to the soulful beats that No ID has dug through the crates to find. It is an album that many people are thrilled to hear.
Jay-Z believes to be his most important accomplishment is the wealth that he has gained as he has transitioned from a dope dealer to a businessman. He is talking about how he wants to impart this wisdom to other people that have a chance to get out of the ghetto. Jay-Z only has 10 songs on the “4:44” album, but he is definitely packing a lot of content within these 10 songs. He has talked about everything from the race issues inside of America to the issues within his own marriage.
He has taken a broad scale and look at the stupid things that he did with money as a young adult and the wiser decisions that he made to preserve wealth as an older adult. Many people that have heard the album will say that this is a very reflective Jay-Z. He is out of his element, but he is actually embracing a new element. He is redefining his life through his music, and this is what has attracted people to this album so early.
No I.D. is the person that is on the production, but many people would agree that the No I.D. production sounds a lot like what Kanye would have done if he would have been on better terms with Jay-Z.
There are Nina Simone and Stevie Wonder samples flowing through the album. There is a soulful presence that is reminiscent of “The Blueprint” album that Jay-Z created. The samples are an indication of just how much Jay-Z wanted to stay soulful. He wanted to create a whole new standard where he would be able to talk about what he was wrestling with, but he wanted to provide people with a familiar soulful sound. Jay-Z has been quite successful in accomplishing all of these things.
There are a ton of people that are going to wonder if there is a publicity ploy about the “4:44” album. People that have been able to follow him are certain that there is more to this than a publicity stunt. It is obvious that Jay-Z and Beyonce have more money than they will ever be able to spend. Some people may think that this is a bad thing to be so open about the marriage. People are feeling the album because he is still showing that there is a lot of growth.
The “4:44” album addresses a plethora of topics. It makes people look their own relationships. It makes people look at the racial tension that has happened around them. This is why the album has been able to go platinum in a short time frame.
It is also quite impressive to see the way that Jay-Z has evolved over the years. It was possible for a lot of people to hear “4:44” and wonder if they needed to talk with their partners. It was time for a lot of people to come clean. This is why Jay-Z has received accolades and a platinum certification. People really wanted to have all this information that Jay-Z provided. They wanted to learn about his marriage and the relationship with friend Kanye West.
Jay-Z has had a whole lot of things going on in his life. He has worked with many people down through the years and people are excited to get a glimpse into the life of Jay-Z and Beyonce. The combination of “Lemonade” and “4:44” can really put a stamp on relationships. Marriage can be difficult. Jay-Z has done the unthinkable. He has actually bared his soul and helped people see into his world with Beyonce.
There is a lot of talk about the brand new “4:44” album that Jay-Z has released. The title track is about his marriage, but he goes through other subjects on the album. Strangely, this is only marriage track on the album, but it is dominant. This is the topic of conversation when it comes to the new album. This is what people want to know about. They are interested in the way that the entire affair unfolded.
This is one of the more fascinating albums of 2017 so far, and this is largely because it is linked to a whole new issue that is pertaining to the life of Jay-Z. It addresses the affair privately, but he also talks about the friendship failure with Kanye West. He has also been able to throw shots at other rappers in the game like Future. People wonder what this is all about, but most of it is speculation. It has become one of those sensationalized stories that speaks to people from different walks of life.
The great thing about the album is that it leaves a lot of room for discussion. This album is a huge conversation starter. It is hard for people to hear it and not want to talk about it. This album is the raw emotional of Jay-Z. This is the most honest that he has ever been as an artist. He wanted to make people to see inside of his life.
Jay-Z worked his way to the top, and he has exposed how he fell from grace with Beyonce. He has stated that he neglected his marriage, and now it is coming back to make amends with his wife. Jay-Z has apologized and gave some deep thought about what he has done. This is a very remorseful Jay-Z.
If you have ever owned a cat or dog you know how endearing they can be. Those who count themselves as dog people understand the strong bond that a dog owner can build with their pet. Most people know that dogs can be very loyal to the people that take care of them and are smart enough to do useful work like assisting a blind owner or even helping to save a child lost in the forest from frostbite as one dog did for the child of its owners a few years ago. Dogs even have their own personalities with some being more friendly than others, having their own preferences and some might say a sense of humor. Given the strong attachments that people can develop to their dogs it is probably easy to understand why rapper ScHoolboy Q tweeted United Airlines about a big snafu the company made with regard to his dog Yeeerndamean.
According to The Fader, ScHoolboy Q made a recent trip from Missouri to California and he apparently took his dog along with him on this trip. While the rapper was able to make it to his destination just fine his dog Yeeerndamean had some complications with its travel arrangements. Presumably, Yeeerndamean was supposed to be on the same flight as ScHoolboy Q so that it would end up at the same destination. The Fader reports that the rapper’s journey to California included a layover in Denver, Colorado. Here’s where things get murky. It seems as though Yeeerndamean probably got lust in the shuffle somewhere around this leg of the trip.
When Q made it to California he was informed that his dog was “mixed up with another in Denver.” Instead of heading to sunny California with its owner, Yeeerndamean had been sent on its merry way to the windy city of Chicago, Illinois. All of this presumably led Q to send a tweet in mid-July that read: “You guys r idiots @united HOW U PUT MY DOG ON THE WRONG FLIGHT???? I need answers.” According to The Fader Yeeerndamean has been reunited with ScHoolboy Q.
Shawn Carter is getting a lot of accolades for his honesty. He has been having a great year so far. He is the father of twins that were born recently, and his new album has already gone platinum.
There is a lot of talk about what Jay-Z has been saying in his lyrics, but that is just the start of the analysis of the album. In the loops that are running in the background it is clear that there is still a soulful sound. Some people that are hearing it for the first time may even connect with the whole “Blueprint” album that he put forth almost 2 decades ago. It would be a long gain between this sound and the sound of the new material, but No I.D. put in the work. He put in the time to improve upon his skills. Quincy Jones inspired Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter. There was a connection between Jay-Z and No I.D. that would really give the album a totally familiar sound. Still, with the lyrics that were being addressed people had to know that this was not the same. This was the evolution of Jay-Z.
As an adult Jay-Z has proven that he has more to talk about than the street life. He is a reflective rapper that doesn’t try to find in any young age bracket with this album. Carter is much more concerned about setting the standard. He is not trying to emulate what everyone else is doing. He is not trying to actually put an album together with many hits for the radio. Carter was much more interested in telling his story in a way that was pure. He stuck with one producer – a rare thing for Jay-Z – throughout the whole album, and the result is a masterpiece.
It’s fair to say that Jay-Z is one of the best hip-hop artists of all time. As a solo artist, he has more number one albums than anyone else in music history. True hip-hop fans know that The Jigga Man will continue to make an effort to raise the bar in the industry.
Jay-Z’s new album, 4:44, is the legend’s 13th studio album. To be honest, some were shocked that he released this album at this time. With the birth of newborn twins, one would imagine that his personal life would not give him enough time to create and promote a new album. Jay continues to prove that he should never be underestimated.
The 4:44 album made a big splash during its first week on the market. It secured the number one spot on the Billboard 200. This hot new album managed to move 262,000 units. This is extremely impressive when you consider the fact that Jay has been in the business for over 25 years. It’s very hard for hip hop artists to stay relevant for a long period of time. For example, the chances of L.L. Cool J. releasing another album are extremely slim.
With Tidal and promotional giveaways at his disposal, it’s fair to say that 4:44 will continue to do well in the upcoming months. The numbers show that 4:44 is the fourth best début album of the year. Kendrick Lamar’s album (DAMN) reigns supreme at the moment.
Jay-Z has emerged as a talented rap artist and music mogul. After listening to 4:44, one must admit that he hasn’t lost his touch. This new album shows that Jay can smash bars and flow on any beat with ease. Will he pull another ace out of his sleeve soon?
