Jay-Z Sells Out & Kanyes Eminem
Jay-Z is officially in another realm. He sold out his upcoming show at London's Alexandra Palace (November 4th) in just 15 seconds just this morning. This is after his tickets for his Sept. 18th concert he did at London's Roundhouse sold out in just a few hours. It's f'n Jay-Z mania in the UK. Hov also sent in his acceptance speech for his "Hottest MC In the Game" Award from MTV. He pulled a Kanye and said Eminem deserved to be on the list because he outsold damn near everybody this year:
“MTV, Thanx for this nod of appreciation,” Jay wrote. “Although I don’t strive to be ‘hot’ for any particular year, I thank you for the acknowledgment. My whole goal is to be recognized as the best ever. I created the term ‘best rapper alive’ as a sign of respect to my fallen comrades (Biggie and Tupac). I believe I’ve allowed a significant grace period, and I believe I would not be respecting myself if being the absolute best was not my goal, and that’s why I continue to push myself until exhaustion … salute. “Sidebar: Kanye moment if I may … Eminem?!?! I think you do the credibility of this list a disservice if you don’t thoroughly explain his omission,” Jay continued. “As of this second he has the highest selling rap album of the year and a scene stealing verse on the best ‘posse’ cut of the year. (*Hands mic back to Taylor Swift … and nobody was harmed, I apologize in advance.)”Hilarity.
