Right. I see how comparing Ray Lewis to no one in any context and Hitler to no one in any context is exactly the same as recognizing/respecting talent of Jay-Z when directly compared to two other music "artists" are exactly the same thing.
I didn't invite the dude over for tea, he isn't hosting a kids' birthday party, he isn't a candidate for Pastor at the local Church, I didn't ask you to send him a Christmas card, he isn't applying for a position as a federal agent.
Relax Frances. I was just admiring the fact that when compared to the flatulence of music "talent" today, Jay-Z stands far and above what is considered "good" today. I made a simple comparison, possibly even hyperbolic statement, in a discrete context of rap music. How that translates into me nominating him for Pope, I'm not sure.
