    billz whats good

  6. shanetron Says:

    I’m just wondering how it fits in with “Jockin’ Jay-Z”. It seems he has an idea at first, and it’s a good idea, but it doesn’t match the concept of the whole (Blue Magic to American Gangster)

  7. pockets Says:

    i think jockin jay-z is just a bonus track

  8. rocstar Says:

    blue magic was a bonus cut

  9. D. Billz Says:

    BK2LV

    What’s going on chief? Been a minute. How’s Sin City?

  10. shanetr on Says:

    blue magic was the first single, and then he felt as if it had more of ’80s aesthetic, but was searching for a ’70s aesthetic

  11. PW Says:

    The best part of this song is the hook…and Jay saying “Lighters!”

    Prolly the least entertaining song Jay has had on the radio since…well..ever?

    *Grills the lurkers*

  13. McFly Says:

    This song is meant to be played in stadiums.

    Hearing it on a computer isn’t gonna do anything for anyone.

    this isn’t the type of song where flow is even important. who listens to a big, epic song like this and then complains about the lack of flow? this is clearly made for crowds of 20K and up and flow don’t mean shit when you gotta reach those people up in the rafters.

  34. plug Says:

    I really want to hate on this song…but I cant… this song IS epic.

    I have to agree wit eskay = I lost

  70. SeeAmI? Says:

    AH HA! (old jewsih man voice)….got me. but ever since jay has been succesfull black folk been trying some way to explain it as if he couldnt reach these hights without joining the freemasons ect…(not that the freemasons are bad or anything)

  71. lurker Says:

    Everyone knows that the pyramid with the all seeing eye is an old illuminati/masonic symbol. Jay pushes that shit beyond belief, at what point in your life have you ever been just so excited about a symbol that you just wanna show it wherever you go? I understand its on money, but in that johnny cash video that shit was eerie as fuck. Not to mention who he named his company after, its quite clear whose side jay is on.

  85. peteroasis Says:

    While this song isn’t wack, it’s just not that hot shit that we have come to expect from Mr. Carter. Put this song against anything from The Blueprint and it seems like a throwaway that was taken from the trash, dusted off, and released.

    There is so much mediocre music in the market that we get excited by an ok song like history. We need to watch out for stuff coming from Kid Cudi, U-N-I, Diz Gibran, Folk & Stres and Charles Hamilton. These guys are the future…

    Just some thoughts…
