Years ago, Jay-Z was known as the feature killer. Lately it doesn’t seem like he has the same spark. In 2010, Hov dropped numerous gems on songs like “So Appalled”, “Monster”, “Light Up”, and “Shiny Suit Theory.” He has been receiving criticism from fans because of his performance on “Watch The Throne,” and lackluster verses i.e.”Three Kings” With the release of the “Don’t Kill My Vibe” Remix, we hear Jay-Z go toe-to-toe with hip-hop’s newest star, Kendrick Lamar. We all know Jay-Z’s lyrical ability, but is the hunger there anymore? With the birth of Blue Ivy, and the move of the Nets to Brooklyn, keeping up with the new young stars may be the last thing on his mind.
