Jay-Z and Kanye aren't the sort of guys that back down from a challenge. Which is why we didn't ask for their opinion when facing them off. ALBUMS Jay-Z: His platinum-selling 1996 debut "Reasonable Doubt" quickly established him as an artist to watch and you'd struggle to find a hip-hop fan who doesn't consider "The Blueprint" a classic. Several recent records, however, (including "Kingdom Come" and "The Blueprint 3") generated far less universal acclaim. Kanye (winner)

** 1/2 (out of four) Rockie Fresh likes cars. He likes buying cars ("In 2013/I plan to buy too many cars"). He likes talking about cars.

***1/2 (out of four)   When was the last time you saw Kanye West smile? He was once a schoolyard dick-joke rapper; now he's “all black everything,” every day, constantly dressed for a funeral and fighting the paparazzi with Kim Kardashian on his arm. In a recent New York Times interview, he said, “Maybe 90 percent of the time it looks like I'm not having a good time.”   On 90 percent of “Yeezus,” Kanye's sixth studio album,...

Patrick Stump doesn't claim to be cool. “I don't believe in guilty pleasures,” Stump says, when the subject of pop music comes up. The Fall Out Boy singer's solo album, “Soul Punk,” which dropped Oct. 18, is the cool kind of pop music, though: the kind that draws on Timbaland as much as any punk band and ends up sounding a little like a Prince record. Stump, who caps his tour Friday at Metro, called in during a recent stop in Buffalo to talk with RedEye about Hollywood parties, socialism and what...
