Bawuphakamise lo mbuzo ngesihloko secwecwe labo elityunjwe yiGrammy Bukela iTrone.



Ngoku masizame ukuyiphendula.

Yiyiphi i-rap superstars ezimbini - u-Kanye West okanye u-Jay-Z - yinkosi yangempela ye-hip-hop kwi-2011?





Akukho mpendulo ilula njengoko abalandeli bakaJay-Z bengathanda ukuba ukholelwe. Ngokuqinisekileyo, uJay ukwinqanaba eliphezulu njengalo lonke ixesha - kanye apho kunye noTupac Shakur ongafiyo kunye noNotorious B.I.G. - kodwa masinyaniseke: Umsebenzi wakhe obalaseleyo waphuma kwiminyaka eyadlulayo.

Omnye unokuxoxa ukuba i-protege kaJay, eNtshona, yahlutha itrone kumfundisi-ntsapho kwindawo ethile malunga ne-2004 - ingxabano ebonakala iqiniswa kukuba iWest ifumene amagama amaninzi (asixhenxe) kwiiMbasa zeGrammy ezizayo (nangona iTrone kunye nomzamo weNtshonalanga, uMhlekazi wam. IFantasy eJikiweyo emnyama, bobabini baye bakhutshelwa kwelona cwecwe libaluleke kakhulu.



Ngembeko ye-duo eguqukayo elindelwe kakhulu Bukela iTrone Tour eza eSan Jose's HP Pavilion ngoLwesithathu, siye sayila ikhadi lamanqaku ukunceda ukulinganisa ukuba ngubani ukumkani wangoku wehip-hop. Funda ubungqina kwaye uvote kudidi ngalunye, uthelekise amanqaku ekugqibeleni kwaye - voilà! — unaye ophumeleleyo.

Eyona rekhodi yokuqala



Kwi-hip-hop, mhlawumbi ngaphezu kwayo nayiphi na enye indidi, kuninzi kukhwela kwirekhodi yokuqala. Kubalulekile ukuphuma ngaphandle kwesango ngokukhawuleza kwaye uzimise njengamandla orhwebo kunye nomculi ofanelekileyo. U-Jay-Z kunye no-Kanye ngokuqinisekileyo bafezekise okokugqibela kunye ne-1996 ye-Resential Doubt kunye ne-2004's I-College Dropout, ngokulandelanayo. Ngamnye unyuse i-ante yabo bonke abeza kumdlalo, eqaqambisa ezona zinto zibalaseleyo ze-hip-hop zangoku ngelixa kusandiswa i-horizons yodidi. I-West yayiyi-hit enkulu yorhwebo - ukuthengisa i-3 yezigidi kwi-Jay ye-1.5 yezigidi - ngelixa u-Jay-Z umzamo wangaphambili ubonakalise ukuba unempembelelo ngakumbi. Akunakwenzeka ukwenza uluhlu oluhloniphekileyo lwee-albhamu eziphezulu ze-hip-hop kwimbali kwaye zingabandakanyi zombini.

Ikhathalogu engcono iyonke



U-Jay-Z uqhubekile nokuqengqeleka emva koMathandabuzo aQinisekileyo, elawula ngasekupheleni kweminyaka yee-'90s kunye nasekuqaleni koo-2000 ngeeklasikhi ezinje ngo-1997's Kwixesha Lobomi Bam, Umqu. 1, 1998’s Umqu. 2 … UBomi bokunkqonkqoza nzima kunye no-2001's The Blueprint. Iminikelo yakutshanje evela kwikhathalogu yakhe ye-11-solo-album-strong-kuquka i-2009 I-Blueprint 3-ayizange ihambelane namandla emveliso yokuqala. Ukuba buthuntu, uJay ubonakala enyathela amanzi ukusukela ngo-2003 Icwecwe eliMnyama.

Umzamo we-West sophomore, i-2005's Registration kade, yayiphantse yamangalisa njengokuqala kwakhe. Ukuphumelela kwakhe okwesithathu (Isidanga sika-2007) sasilungile kwaye isine sakhe (2008's 808s & Heartbreak) sasinesidima, kodwa wayenokukugcina okona kulungileyo okokugqibela: Ingqondo evuthuza iMy Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy yayiyeyona albhamu yaziwa kakhulu yehip-hop. kunyaka ophelileyo (ewe, abavoti beGrammy bayivuthela).

Elona cwecwe liphupha kakhulu

Lo ayingombuzo wobungakanani (uJay-Z ebekumdlalo ixesha elide kwaye unenani elikhulu leengoma ezilungileyo), kodwa umgangatho. Leliphi igcisa elinokuqulunqa iingoma ezingcono kakhulu, yithi, iingoma ezili-15? Ukhuphiswano oluqinileyo, olunikwe ukuba uJay unokubandakanya iminikelo ye-stellar njenge-Can't Knock the Hustle, Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem) kunye ne-Empire State of Mind ngelixa iWest inezinto ezithandwa yiGold Digger, uYesu Walks kunye no-Runaway kwi-arsenal yakhe.

Owona mhobe

Akukho nqongophala yokukhetha kuyo, kulo naliphi na igcisa. Kunzima kakhulu ukukhetha enye kaJay, ohambise iingoma ezininzi zomculo kule minyaka idlulileyo. Nangona kunjalo, ngenxa yengxoxo-mpikiswano, siza kuhlala kwi-Empire State of Mind, ingoma yothando yomculi we-rapper kwi-Big Apple. Kukho impikiswano encinci malunga nenani lokutyikitya lika-Kanye, kunye nezigidi ezibonakala ngathi zivumelana malunga neGold Digger eyonwabisayo.

Eyona rekhodi yokuthengisa

Okwangoku, ayilogqatso olusondeleyo. U-Jay-Z uthengise iirekhodi ezizigidi ezingama-26 kwihlabathi jikelele kwaye zonke ii-albhamu zakhe ze-studio ezili-11 ziye zaqinisekiswa ubuncinci iplatinam e-US Kwakhona uye wakhulula enye ukumkani - u-Elvis Presley - kwaye waba ligcisa elineyona albhamu eyedwa yeNombolo e-1 (ezisithoba) . Ukuthengiswa kwe-albhamu yaseNtshona kulungele malunga ne-15 yezigidi kwaye ezine kwiinzame zakhe ezihlanu ziye zabetha iNombolo ye-1.

Kodwa apho ifumana umdla kukuzama ukwenza iprojekthi yokuthengisa kwixesha elizayo. IWest ibonakala inesiseko sabalandeli abancinci kwaye iyisilo esipheleleyo xa kufikwa kukhutshelwa kwedijithali. Ekugqibeleni, i-West ivalwe kwi-No. Ngaba iWest iyawenza umahluko?

Imbonakalo yeendwendwe ezigqwesileyo

Olu didi ubuncinane lubaluleke njengalo naluphi na umxube. Isiqingatha seculo lehip-hop lale mihla, kubonakala ngathi, lakhiwe ngeengoma eziquka iimvumi zondwendwe olunye okanye ngaphezulu. Yeyona ndlela ilungileyo yokuba iirapper zihlale kwindawo ebonakalayo kwaye zibambe abalandeli abatsha. Bobabini uJay kunye noKanye baye basebenza kakhulu kulo mbandela.

Oyena mdlali uphilayo

U-Jay-Z yi-rapper engcono - malunga nokuhamba kwezwi elicocekileyo - kodwa oko kuza ngamandla ngakumbi kwi-studio kunakwiqonga eliphilayo. Ngokuqinisekileyo akanalo ubukho beqonga lika-Kanye kunye nokuthanda okumangalisayo kwibala lekhonsathi. U-Jay ukwangumdlali ongahambelaniyo, onokuba lukhenkethi olunye kwaye lube mediocre ngokulandelayo. I-West ithanda imveliso yeengcamango ezinkulu, ngamanye amaxesha i-sabotage (ngaphezu kwamandla) iingoma.

Owona mfanekiso wosaziwayo

Ukuba ingxabano yibhegi yakho, uKanye ngumfo wakho. Uhlala ejongana njengengqondi ozibambeleyo, enenkathazo-enye yezinto ezininzi eziveliswe ngumculo wepop. Uyinto encinci ye-cannon kwaye ubonakala ehlala ekulungele ukuvutha emlonyeni wakhe kwaye enze indawo ngexesha elingenangqondo - okanye mhlawumbi ulibale yonke i-Taylor Swift fiasco kwiMTV Video Music Awards? Kwelinye icala, akafane akruquke.

UJay, ngokuthelekisa, ngokungathandabuzekiyo isenzo se-hip-hop sesona siphezulu, ukhetha ukugxila kwintsapho, ishishini kunye nemidlalo. Snoozer, akunjalo? Okanye mhlawumbi sinomona nje ngokuba utshatile ngolonwabo komnye wabasetyhini abashushu kakhulu emhlabeni.

I-Tiebreaker: Eyona nto ingcono yokubukela iTrone:

I-titans ezimbini zihamba ngentloko kwi-albhamu, okwenza Jonga iTrone mhlawumbi eyona ndawo yokulwa ukuze wenze isigqibo sokuba ngubani ngokwenene ofanelwe ukubizwa ngokuba yinkosi ye-hip-hop. UJay-Z uyaphumelela kukhuphiswano, evakala ngcono kwirekhodi kunokuba ebenjalo kwiminyaka. I-West nayo ikwimo ephezulu, nangona ngokuqinisekileyo akukho mkhulu kunokuba wayenjalo kwiFantasy yam Entle Emnyama Ephothiweyo.
