Rakim worries that the enormous rift between the rap audience and millionaire rappers who rhyme about Gulfstream jets is robbing the music of inventiveness and joy. “It’s more like, ‘Look what I got’ or ‘You ain’t got what I got’ or ‘You got to get what I got,’” he says. “It’s making the listener a little envious of what’s going on, and it’s almost demeaning.”

Kinda sorta right tbh

Well from the context of the article I assume he meant the luxury rap Jay and Ye were doing on Watch The Throne. If he means in general though I've never listened to an album and thought "Wow I feel like this guy is demeaning me by talking about how much money he has". It's just bragging
