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.

You guys out to go on over to

You guys out to go on over to Bossip and read about your idol Jay Z and find out what he is really selling. So gullible on this site, which is why I don't visit any more than I do. People are just not up on things, and don't do their research. This is like a teeny bopper blog. Google rappers and the Illuminati and educate yourselves.

sheena: As for Drake not deserving to be on the MTV hot list for 2009, how many rappers got this on their resume:He achieved success before signing to a major record Performed at The BET Awards before signing to a major recordOn the Billboard Hot 100 chart of July 4, 2009, both “Best I Ever Had”, and “Every Girl” by Young Money Entertainment entered the top ten at positions 3 and 10 respectively.Drake is only the second artist to have his first two top ten hits in the same week. Best I Ever Had debuted at #92 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US and has peaked at #2 for 3 weeks.“Best I Ever Had” has been downloaded 1,000,000 times since its release.On June 29, 2009 it was confirmed Drake signed a record deal with Young Money Entertainment for 4 million dollars.This is why he’s hot. You might not like him but lets state facts. Like Jay said, “Men Lie, women lie, numbers don’t.” DRAKE???

It was a joke, you know ha ha. Congrats to Jay on his tour, and all his accomplisments this year.

Not wanting to hate on Jay

Not wanting to hate on Jay but I know from past experience of trying to get tickets that it isn't necessarily fans buying up the tix. Usually what happens is they get sold out superfast by parasites who then sell them on a few well known UK sites for ridiculous prices. I know people who've done it and made serious money 'cause they know fans want tix. But Jay and the like are making their money off ticket sales either way so it doesn't really matter to them.

Math: THIS! I’m a former Eminem fan and even to this day, I still believe he’s a good MC but after awhile, you realize that he’s limited. His anger towards EVERYTHING was perfect for my badass wannabe 12 yo self lol but now, I’m just like ‘grow up or stfd’.That being said, as shitty as I thought it was, his album did sell so I’m glad Jay-Z called MTV out.That list was very questionable though. They had Gucci Mane and Drake on it. Like O RLY? -_- Gucci Mane?!??!!! With that wack less than 16 he "spit" on Mario's song??!??!?! WTF...... And Drake, when I heard that I almost died...

He could have also added "Em is the best MC in the game right now..he killed me on one of my own tracks "Renagade"..so im confused at how you have me #1 and not him. Its cool..MTV you can continue kissing my @ss though". LMAO!! Im just kidding. Congrats to Jay.

To keep it even funkier, Em

To keep it even funkier, Em is the kind of artist that you look up on YouTube, I'm not downloading his music off of itunes! Especially cuz mf's is charging 1.29 per song! LOL he ain't worth it.

Trulyyours01: Don’t get me

Trulyyours01: Don’t get me wrong when Em first came out I was like Damn this dude is HOTTT, But he hasn’t grown as an artist. It’s the same shit he was spitting 5 yrs ago. it’s like he limits himself to dissing (women) people. I’m over it, try again Em. THIS!

Trulyyours01: Thats the only way he would have made those numbers…. Who understands the Music Industry, cuz I don’t. Im with you! I mean... he just doesnt have that many fans as he used to. Its very possible he could have pulled a 50 Cent and purchased tickets or had his people purchase tickets. I mean, Im not a JayZ fan but hey... I guess thats nice. You know his stans are as bad as his wife's so...... um, yeah be careful lol

Hey Tash, I went all the way

Hey Tash, I went all the way back to the last page on your site and I must say you have DEF stepped up your game since 2005. (I should hope so) Also, can we please get the pix from Diddy's party where he invited Kim and Cassie. Just want to witness how these ladies continue to play their position for this dude. It's funny to me. Both of these ladies love this man and he keeps them hanging on. Note to Cassie: Kim is NOT going anywhere, please move on. You are young and beautiful and no need to keep your hopes up. He will always CATER to her because believe me if KIM is not happy, DIDDY will NOT be happy and therefore YOU will NEVER be happy in that relationship. I'm out!
