    Ill leave yall with this, everyone knows im a jay stan, but how many caught the triple entendre in this

    Throughout my junior high years it was all friendly
    But now this higher learning got the Remy in me
    Liquors invaded my kidneys
    Got me ready to lick off, mama forgive me”

    On one hand once again we have the literal sense where Jay is talkin about how he was a good guy in Juinior high til the D’evils (greed for money) got in him and had him wildin out. Metaphorically, he is comparing it to being drunk off remy…the greed has got him acting as if he was intoxicated. The line was dope enough, until i went out and rented a movie called ‘higher learning’. The character known as ‘Remy’ was pretty much a pleasent guy all his fuckin life (from Junior highschool on, until he reached university…also known as higher learning). Remy then made skin head friends who showed him a new light and had him wildin out.

    There my friends, we have a triple entendre

    Or maybe not.

    @Iceberg
    Nobody knows what Jay does in his spare time. Pretty sure dude reads and watches movies constantly and thats where most of his [ideas for] raps come from. He [most likely] is brainwashed to a certain extent.

  9. KingPoetic Says:

    I can’t see how it wouldn’t have, especially when @ the time the only think fucking w/ it would have been vol 3

  10. Mr. Iceberg Slim Says:

    Amp Geez this is for you

    “My next few albums, instead of projects,
    There’ll be a difficult test inside the cover for the mind’s optics”

    If you recall, Illmatic and It was written had QB in the background. This freestyle dropped before Stillmatic was released, so lets take a look at the covers of the next couple albums and see what he’s talking about.

    2001 was the bling era. Rocafella and cash money had the game in a choke hold, the art was removed from hip hop. It was all about singles, champagne, and jewlery.

    Nas has on every single piece of platinum jewlery he every bought, including the infamous QB piece. The New york city skyline is in the background with dark clouds above, looking like theres about to be a bad storm.

    Pay attention to his right hand, hes got 4 fingers stretched out. These 4 fingers are representing his previous 4 official studio albums (Illmatic, It was Written, Nastradamus, I Am).

    A pigeon stands next to him, looking right at him. For now, we’re still in the dark about what he’s trying to say…but going back to the line he specifically said “my next few albums”

    God’s Son

    Now the message is complete. In 2001 Nas was making a biblical reference with the Stillmatic cover. The dark clouds symbolise a storm is coming, particularly over NYC. That was the bling era when hip hop lost its essence. Jayz and his Crystal raps were coming to an end. It was time for a change. Just as god sent Noah down to earth in desperate times to save Gods creations and start fresh….God’s Son was sent down to save hip hop and start fresh.

    Looking at the God’s Son cover, there is a flood in the background. Noah had to build Noah’s arch to save the animals during the flood, Nas made this album. All the platinum he was wearing, the fly velour suit, is gone. He is shirtless with 2 pieces of gold jewlery. This symbolises the end of the bling era. Tracks like ‘Destroy and Rebuild’ show Nas’ disgust with the state of hip hop.

    Looking at the back of the cover, the Moses comparison is confirmed. In the bible Noah was told to save 2 of each animal…Nas holds 2 doves with 2 pieces of gold on. Doves and gold symbolising purity…bringing back the essence of hip hop. Nas representing the leader and the chosen one

  11. AmpGeez a.k.a I'm A Jerk Says:

    That’s why Reasonable Doubt is Jay’s best LP. There was a depth on a lyrical level and he was saying some real street shit at the same time. He hasn’t rapped like that since but that’s Jay-Z in his purest form.

    Aight, I’m done.

    I will not get sucked into the Jay black hole tonght lol.

    Pause that last sentence JIC.
