Love Leonard Cohen and own a bunch of his albums. Apparently I need to also own his poetry. Outstanding.

@devrandom idgi is he just shitting on people he doesn't like because he doesn't like rap or something

@roysmeding Personally, I don't think it has anything to do with him not liking rap. Since Cohen isn't around anymore to say for sure, what I say is purely speculation.

But I think it's more of a typical old generation vs new generation thing.

I think the Jay-Z reference comes from Bob Dylan's grandson who called Bob Dylan "…the Jay-Z of his time…" and then Jay-Z later called himself the "…Bob Dylan of rap music".

Without knowing for sure, I personally think it's more or less a friendly jest.
