In an interview with Rolling Stones magazine, JayZ took baby shots to LL Cool J saying that competing at his level and his age is “rarified air”.
“We’ve seen people like LL Cool J have longevity and we respect the heritage of what he’s done but it’s not like right now he’s competing on the same level as Lil’ Wayne so for me to still be able to compete at that level at my age, that’s rarefied air, it’s never been done.”
But Jay-Z knows his lane and stay relevant with trying to make “young songs”.
“I think the problem with people, as they start to mature, they say, ‘Rap is a young man’s game,’ and they keep trying to make young songs. But you don’t know the slang — it changes every day. You can visit the topic, but these young kids live it every day, and you’re just visiting. So you’re trying to be something you’re not, and the audience doesn’t buy into that. And people wonder why [they're not selling]. ‘I made a great Southern bounce song!’ You’re from New York, and you’re 70! Why are you bouncing?”
I wonder if Jay would still rap at 70?
“THROW YOUR *cough cough* DIAMONDS IN THE *cough cough* AIR!! *weez*”
