Jay-Z – Show Me What You Got


Jay-Z – Show Me What You Got

Huge props to Brian at Idolator.

*Haters, start your engines!*  

Update: Jay and Just speak on making the song.

Update: “The FBI may do an investigation into this,” an anonymous source told AllHipHop.com. “Everything has been under lock and key, so we have no idea how the single was leaked.”

    It’s obvious though that he was gonna make his first single like this anyways though. Most first singles from rappers that wan’t to sell albums, are usually always aimed towards the clubs and ladies in the first place, especially in this day and time.

    Stop talking about ‘singles’ like they comprise some distinct category of music that needs to be evaluated on it’s on.

    The album’s going to be good, and you all know it, so please commence the STFUing. Only douchebags are concerned about what gets played on the radio, but all of Jay’s singles are teeniebopper crap yet all of his albums are dank, and we all know both of these things, so let’s stop pretending like we don’t. K?

  17. Menace Says:

    the song is aiight. i dont think its classic jayz, its just a diff kinda song. and btw im pretty sure that this leak was ON PURPOSE. come on now…it wasnt like 4 or 5 songs leaked…it was ONE SONG which will prolly be the first single. and funny how the quality is GREAT. no unmastered or low quality songs, full mp3 song come on now lol. and they said everything was on lock and key well then it couldnt have been unpurposely leaked. jayz isnt just an artist, he’s the PRESIDENT of his own label so i doubt anybody over him leaked it. what a publicity stunt.

  18. Mr. Pif Says:

    Jay-Z is the most over-rated emcee ever. Beyond Reasonable Doubt, all his albums are garbage in comparison, and people still be hangin from the man’s genitals.

  19. Shinyo Says:

    My ass the FBI is gonna look into this shit….And I thought that was bullshit even before I found out the Def Jam college promotion team has mailed this shit to DJs…so you know commercial stations got it first….

  20. bay2la Says:

    its been said already but this song is def not leaked. fake retirement, fake leak, its hilarious. what would black album have sold if it wasnt his “last album”? this song is alright but everyones so caught up in the hype about a jay z come-back i heard it play 3 times in a 15 minute span driving around LA. i can only imagine how much play its gettin in the east. its no joke jay is a hustler becuz he probably doubled his money with all this nonsense.

  21. P o v a Says:

    “Jay-z is the most over-rated emcee ever.” Blah, who you think is holding it down then. You cant say hip hop without jay. Simple as that. He picked the ball up and ran with it. No other rapper has had as much success. Just because he talking about “cut yo throat, im dirty in the streets, Im grimy” doesnt take nothing from him. Go get yo fix from the so called “street niggas” who still walking around and not in jail for the shit they rap about Pif.

  23. The Game Says:

    You 38 and you still rapping UGHHHH!

  24. luis Says:

    hey assholes…..y’all niggas must be on some crazy ass demonic drug overdose if you think this song is hot……..STRAIGHT GARBAGE!!!! WOW, the big homie can do way better than this meng, and there are alot of you motherfuckers trying to debate that the song is tight and hot and y’all know that this shit is NOT HOT……y’all can’t face the truth!

    >>Jay lost, real bad today…

    but I will not lose, for even in defeat, there’s a valuable lesson learned, so it evens it up for me”

    SEE WHAT I MEAN!!!! esGay, you are a complete idiot!!!!

  25. Mikeyllo Says:

    I have to admit that the song is fire. The only problem is, here in Baltimore, 92Q played it back-to-back for a whole hour from 5-6pm on Friday and then started replaying it repeatedly again at 8pm. So now, I’m a little tired of the joint. LOL.

  26. k-rob Says:

    this song song like its from beyonce’s album, what the fuck is hov doing. that nigga did come collabos with his woman and he dont know how to go back to being hov.
    he is offically michael jordan, should have stayed retired.
    you jigga fans are in denial the track is worst than game’s “lets ride”

  27. G7 Says:

    This song is only weak because Jay has done songs like this 10 times or more already. This song would have been hot 6 or 7 years ago, but his formula for releasing songs like this is getting repetitive and tiresome. At this point in his career he should be able to release deeper, more creative songs, but he won’t risk the sales. We’re getting the usual from him though; pop singles and usually good albums. But as a “comeback” song it gets thumbs down!

  29. bitterbroad Says:

    Let me announce that I love Jay Z. I’m a real fan! On the real, this song is leaving me real bitter. The lyrics are subpar, I think Diddy is spitting harder than this on Press Play. The horns are as annoying as the alarm in B’s joint. This is suppose to be the return, the MJ of recording came back wearing the 45. I’m disappointed, my feelings are hurt, damn. So I suppose you’ll be mad when I go back to snapping my fingers and leanin and rockin wit it? I must sound like a rambling, bitter ex lover by now. Well, hell Jay gotta come harder than that. I feel like he got his, only got a towel for his self, fixed him a sandwich, rolled over, fell asleep, and woke up in the morning and left without saying goodbye. Get the picture??? Just blaze was suppose to set fire. This sh– is boring, I wouldn’t rock to it in my night gown. Who is it suppose to be for? The club, radio, the streets, I don’t think so and it damn sure ain’t for me. I feel so bitter Jay *middle finger raised in the air* Wave to this…bullsh–

    Sorry but this isn’t the first time that samples of these two songs where combined. The first time these two songs where combined in the form of sampling was 1989 on a song called „Soul Food“ by Philadelphias famous Tuff Crew on their legendary LP „Back to Wreck Shop“.
    That song is a pure instrumental track with dope cuts by legendary DJ Too Tuff who is highly underrated. You can check the track „Soul Food“ on DJ Too Tuffs myspace page (http://www.myspace.com/djtootuff ).

    DJ Too Tuff is currently serving 6 – 22 months at Curran-Fromhold Correction Facility in Philadelphia.

    Go to his myspace page and give him some hope by showing a great DJ and a big influence to a lot of DJ’s some respect where it’s due !!!!!!!!!
