Hip-Hop is Definitely Dead

So last night I was listening to Nas' "Hip-Hop Is Dead" (via The Rap Up), and was thinking to myself why are both Nas and Jay-Z falling off?

Jay-Z just shouldn't have done a Michael Jordan at all. But considering that Nas is calling his album Hip-Hip is Dead and "Where Y'all At," was straight fire, I was expecting more than a rehash of the "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" performed by the Incredible Bongo Band sample that was used in "Thief's Theme." Moreso, I wasn't expecting a Will.I.Am. production credit (let's not even mention that he's got production credits on a lot of albums this year and that we have to hear him speak goo-goo-gaa-gaa more than we're willing to).
