Some rap fans agreed with Cassper Nyovest while others claimed that Hov, who is Beyoncé's hubby, doesn't have hits.
"Jay-Z's ego got the best of him in my opinion. His fall off began when he started discrediting autotune. He's made some incredible business decisions, but as far as his rap career's concerned, he never innovated. It's hard to rate someone whose music is dated."
"Jay-Z doesn’t have new hits… Even Nas doesn’t have hits from his latest offering. They are just good rappers with no new good music."
"We'll forever remember him as the guy who got bodied by Nas."
"I’m also shocked, not only don’t they rate him but also say he’s wack. And it’s not only in SA but the states as well. I am flabbergasted."
