Jay-Z: One of the main criticisms against the "Throne" is its obsession with luxurious wealth. "New watch alert: Hublot / Or the big-face Rollie, I got two of those," raps Jay on "Otis." For the low, low price of a new house, you too could own these three watches. Kanye: Only Kanye could describe his rapping style as the "Hermes of verses." A scarf brand, really? And it doesn't get more out of touch than bragging about your "Lanvin thousand dollar T with no logos." What happened to the self-conscious guy who rapped he couldn't pronounce Versace?
