“I’m losing myself, I’m stuck in the moment
I look in the mirror, My only opponent”
Jay-Z, “Welcome to the Jungle”
“This beat deserves Hennessy, a bad bitch and a bag of weed the Holy Trinity
In the mirror where I see my only enemy”
Kanye West, “The Joy”
I’m not a music critic so I won’t get into what I thought about Jay-Z and Kanye West’s new album, Watch The Throne. Overall, I thought it was entertaining.
After listening to the album a few times, the two lines above fascinated me. I feel like they summarize where each artist is at in their lives and in their careers. It was even more interesting to me that the two lines appear on seperate songs. Who said their’s first and how did it influence the other?
