  • Since when are rappers songwriters?
    Do Jay Z plays an instrument?
    Does he write down chords and come up with a melody?

    Or does he listen to other artists music first and when he likes the melody, samples it, then Rap over it and shoot stupid music video's with expensive cars, bling bling and hot chicks?

    Jay Z will never be like Smokey Robinson..
