@ohsnapitsdiddy: Not at all, Jay's closing verse is one of the best he's ever done. I assume Kanye felt it added something to the verses and the song overall. It certainly doesn't ruin Jay's verses by any means.
I was just listening to this song and it hit me how Kanye made mad noise through both of Jigga's verses up until the very end. In the first verse, he left the chorus at full blast while Jay's verse was smothered. In his own verse, the chorus was quiet in the background. Then in Jay-Z's second verse 'Ye pulls a Funkmaster Puffy and talks over it. And then I read the comments and the consensus here is that jay-Z's verses suck. Interesting. Kanye did it on purpose?!??!
jay-z's first verse doesn't make any sense on this track, it should just start with kanye  He did the same things on the diamonds remix. I hate when kanye goes deep and jay puts some superficial junk on the track.
I think Jay-Z started to run out of steam around this point in his career . . . he indeed passed the "Roc" to Kanye . . . who's much more refreshing and incredibly talented. The best producer/rapper ever.
