Just Blaze Speaks on Ignorant Shit

YN recently spoke to Just about Ignorant Shit, which is easily one of the most storied "unreleased" tracks in the history of hip-hop (blogging).


We just went to the bathroom, pause, and hung up some blankets from the hotel and we just did it straight like that. A lot of times when an artist is first starting an album they don’t want keep the earlier records ‘cause they still trying to get in their zone. So you know, it kinda just sat for a long time and then the dude that was kinda part of the extended family got tricked into giving it away. Demarco tricked him and he gave him the record and it leaked obviously. I was super mad at the time, just more so of the circumstances and because of what it could have been used for later.

The weekend after I heard the AG album, I had this sudden urge to hear the original version repeatedly and at high volume. So, I threw the closest thing we have to a No DJ of the original on a Cd and played it until I couldn’t stand it anymore.

As I was driving around, I came to the conclusion that, Jay = GOAT.

They’re all actors, lookin’ at themselves in the mirror backwards
Can’t even face themself, don’t fear no rappers
They’re all, weirdos, DeNiros in practice
So, don’t believe everything your earlobe captures

    *just listened to Joe Girardi on YES*

    … Girardi is one extremely smart, arrogant dude … complete with stereotype Paisan, mafioso swagger … Yankees will do just fine …
    however their first priority should be to call Alex directly (no agent), and get on their knees and apologize (tears included) for their reckless talk in the papers … losing Joe Torre is not season threatening … losing Alex Rodriguez would be catastrophic to any World Series aspirations in the near future
    ^^^^
    they’ve been saying that Boras already had a deal secured for A-Rod before they even announced he was gonna opt out,

    ^^Allure is too good to lose, but I could see Justify My Thug, you might be right

    i reiterate the need for punctuation

  11. Rey Says:

    @ Babydoll– Ah, good. I haven’t heard anything else off AG except for Blue Magic and Roc Boys.

    Rey = No Leaks!

    But yeah, Ign’ant Shit was dope. I’m looking forward to hearing the version on the retail.

    co-sign, Chace is a dope lyiricist, I’m kinda suprised they aren’t more popular since DJ Khalil has been doing beats for a bunch of mainstream rappers

    Anybody who consistently cops retail albums lost, No disrespect Rey ……..but the 10 bucks can go to something else …….Anyways from 97′ till like 02, I spent many a dollar in this place (c) Benny Blanco

    Allure just goes sooo sloooowwwww to me. It drags the album down to be, just a completely different vibe from the rest of the album. Plus, I think Pharrell should be smacked around with a boogie board.

    … i appreciate his lyrical exploits on that song, but the blues inspired track aint for me … the loud whiny, crying, repetitive guitar lick on that beat, aint for me …

    Lucifer or P.S.A = my favorite track on the Black Album

    I still buy albums, but only if they are rare and out of print, classics, or local artists

    I see movies for free, I don’t drink often, I don’t smoke or do any kinda drugs.. My vices are DVDs, Books, CDs, and Food. So the $10 that could go to something else does go to my “something else”.

    Besides, I only cop from a pool of maybe 10-12 musical acts, and they never all drop in the same year, so My CD budget per year is like 3 tanks of gas.

    The List:

    The Game
    Eminem
    Jay-Z
    Wu Tang Clan
    Kanye West
    Talib Kweli
    Nas
    Linkin Park
    Fall Out Boy
    Diddy

    All them get bought consistently.

    Lupe Fiasco, Joe Budden, Bubba Sparxxx, Common and a couple others will all see me copping their next joints too.

    Okay, so that’s 14 artists, I always buy first week, so that’s about $150 right there.

    Rey didn’t lose.

    PS– iFux once let a homeless albino dwarf sodomize him for money. Easiest money the albino ever made.

    allure is the da craziest song on da black album close ya eyes the song paints a picture for those who don`t hustle that and my 1st song is ill cuz jay went back to his old fast flo Lucifer is him spittin P.s.a is him talkin shit they hot but not like allure hes tellin u that chasin the allure is cool but comes wit a price which may include ur life

  23. State of Grace Says:

    ^^To be honest, I prefer the Grey Album version of Allure more, way more bounce. I made a friend who’s new to Jay-Z a mix and I had to throw that on there. Co-sign smacking Pharrell around though, even though he can make some nice beats, he needs like 4 black eyes.

    … i appreciate his lyrical exploits on that song, but the blues inspired track aint for me … the loud whiny, crying, repetitive guitar lick on that beat, aint for me …

    ^^I can see that. I listened to the blues long before I ever got into hip hop though so it was perfect for me.

    I’d get rid of Justify My Thug, that song always gets skipped

    Lucifer or P.S.A = my favorite track on the Black Album

    ^^The more I think about it, the more I’m convinced Justify My Thug was the song they were talking about. So-sign Lucifer and PSA, two of my favourites

    … cosign … Allure is one of the highlights of the latter part of JayZs career …

  25. 456 Says:

    for me, allure is the last song on reasonable doubt

  26. Rey Says:

    @ Phuque– No, I hear you.. We’ve had the noise vs music argument before. I just didn’t care for Allure.

    and Jay-Z doesn’t need my money, but dude will never live to spend my $10.. It’d be like Scrooge McDuck spending a penny at the bottom of the Money Bin.

    Besides, I prefer listening to music in my headphones and zoning out, and sitting at the computer is too many distractions between AIM, Mi Espacio, NR, IATS, etc.. I’ll never give it the proper attention at the computer.

    Also, I don’t wanna download the album and only be able to listen to it on here. I don’t wanna have to burn it to a CD just to carry it around. I enjoy going to Best Buy and copping the CD and reading the liner notes and everything else…

    …that ya’ll used to do before you found 100 different ways to justify stealing music. Ya’ll mufuckas is cheap, plain unt simple.

    ^I swear to the Most High that I compiled a treatment for a video for that song in my mind the first time I ever heard it. No bullshit… I thought it was THAT ill.

    The old Ignorant Shit >>>>> The new one. Actually, I’m not even sure Jay’s top ten of all time.

    I love how people NEVER stay on topic on any discusion-board.
    so my conclusion: 10% of the people understand that the chorus on ignorant sh!t is Jay being sarcastic….
