    October 25th, 2006 at 9:33 pm

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    just add nas’s name to the 2 pages of artists names jay swagger jacked from

  7. nation of moderation Says:

    ^ mike jones

  8. Paperstacker Says:

    nice beat, but his lyrics and flow and fucked up on this shit. Cant this nigga just spit normal like how he did on hard knock life. damn, this shit could have been a classic if he changed the contact and spit some real shit.

  9. Shanti Says:

    supposedly dre produced this. you know if there’s any truth to that eskay?

  10. L.L(not the rappa) Says:

    hmm..its aight…but def Lost Ones>Kingdom Cum

  11. Paperstacker Says:

    whats up with that whisper flow shit, this nigga is going in the booth playing around when his last three tracks could have been classics.

  12. Big Filth a.k.a. Trill Ferrell b.k.a. The nicest MC in here for sure..AKA, "a little bit more cool, less dre" Says:

    maybe a DRE beat on this new Jay??

    beat is hot.. hook is ok..

    this is the best song of the 3.. but its ehh..

    I mean, his flow.. um.. yeah I know..

    I mean, the first verse dope.. but the rest just seems like filler, like hes talking about “something” but he aint really saying anything..

    I expect so much from Jay and this aint blowing me away..

    skrate up..

  13. eskay Says:

    >>supposedly dre produced this. you know if there’s any truth to that eskay?

    I’m not sure. Paper you got fucking hatred running through your veins, don’t talk to me no more.

    and Nas is garbage.

  14. Paperstacker Says:

    sorry but kingdom come is my shit, that shit is fire

    Kingdom come> lost ones

  15. Renato Pagnani Says:

    In response to Shanti:

    I was just going to post a comment about the production. This COULD be the track with the Chris Martin pianos and the Dre help on the drums/sequencing/doing whatever Dre when he “produces” but I’m not sure. Would be cool if it was Dre as it doens’t immediately jump out to me as a Dre production. Hopefully someone can confirm who produced this.

    We can definitely say it’s not Kanye, Just Blaze, or Timbo, though ha ha ha.

    this the song i was asking about a couple weeks ago

    Eskay’s “Jaydar” went off!!

    I know youre loving this joint homie..

    its aiight though, keep it real! haha

  19. Big Filth a.k.a. Trill Ferrell b.k.a. The nicest MC in here for sure..AKA, "a little bit more cool, less dre" Says:

    ps. this is a DRE joint for sure..

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    haha, im just messing with yall niggas b, i offer constructive criticism. the thing is, when ur me still listening to life and times volume 3, blueprint 1 and 2, etc and ur sitting here like damn, when my nigga Hov gon put the classics he’s known for putting out. I just want to hear the old hov,the type of shit i used to bump in my whip 24/7 in 99, 01, 02, etc.

  21. iLL Change Says:

    first

  22. Shanti Says:

    so he’s obviously coming at dame. is he coming at anyone else in this track?

  23. Shanti Says:

    i kinda like this shit. i’m definitely feeling the piano.

    thanks for clarifying a lil bit.

  25. E From BK Says:

    Definitely ny fave of the three I heard thus far.

  26. iLL Change Says:

    hope this isnt on the album. really. this shit it too friendly.

    One Blood > all leaked Jay tracks so far

  27. P o v a Says:

    i like it. its tight.

  28. eskay Says:

    nah, I can see that no matter what Jay drops ya’ll gonna pick it apart and hate on every note and syllable and proclaim the album to be garbage. which is what I expected. I’m just not gonna discuss the nothing with ya’ll hypocritical niggas.

    “oh Jay is overrated. Nas is better. Jay fell off.”

    then niggas turn right around talking about:

    ” Jay gets held to a higher standard. it’s Jay. We expect more from Jay”

    smh

    here’s your problem:

    “I just want to hear the old hov”

    it’s not gonna happen, let it go.

  29. Big Filth a.k.a. Trill Ferrell b.k.a. The nicest MC in here for sure..AKA, "a little bit more cool, less dre" Says:

    Jay is not as sharp as he used to be..

    this shit is almost sloppy at some points..

    its not wack though, but damn Jay..

    I check this site every day and in the back of my mind Im hoping there is a new Jay song, and Im hoping its gonna be banging to the point I gotta turn my shit up as loud as it goes and get crazy over here and its just not happening..

    Im waiting for that gully marcy shit and im getting martha stewart raps..

    COME ON JAY!!!

  30. E From BK Says:

    Jay has the same curse that Nas had. Jay has been competing with himself since Reasonable Doubt and Nas been competing with Nas since Illmatic.

  31. iLL Change Says:

    >> here’s your problem:

    “I just want to hear the old hov”

    it’s not gonna happen, let it go.

    ——

    i know Jay can come with some decent shit at least. this track is boring, there’s nothing to the beat. his lyrics dont blow me away. just callin’ it like i hear it. Dre 3000′s verse on the “Walk It Out Remix” has been more impressive than all of Jay’s joints.

    and i’m serious.

  32. Paperstacker Says:

    “I just want to hear the old hov”

    it’s not gonna happen, let it go.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    theres always hope, u get the old nas in some of his new tracks, why cant jay just do what he use to do shit, like filth said these martha stewart raps aint cutting it.

  33. E From BK Says:

    Rap fans = critical almost to a fault

  34. 911 Says:

    Ayo he justed iced B that second verse is nice I’ll be damned…….

  35. kingpo Says:

    sometimes i cant figure out if yall just be dissing something to erk someone else on this post or really believe what your saying yourself. someone will come along and say he aint spittin real shit, right after they listen to this and all songwriters’ talking about is his life, which for intents and purposes is at least real to him. he aint nas nas aint him – honestly they aint even same rap type niggas ie: nobody shit talks like SC, nobody, and he knows this so what does he do, stay in his lane and make money as he said in the beginning and watch yall jump the turnstile onto his dick. Nas is the most illmatic nigga most of us born in the late 70s early 80s ever had the pleasure of partaking in their flow that hasnt died mysteriously, and he knows this, so what does he do, stay in his lane, keep creating and watch yall jump the turnstile onto his dick. ADMIT YALL LOVE THEM ALL. peace – long post i know….sorry

  36. esaray Says:

    its a dre beat for sure, the bass lines are clearly his

  37. Shanti Says:

    when i first glance at the name esaray i always think its eskay.

  38. eskay Says:

    >>i know Jay can come with some decent shit at least. this track is boring

    ^ a perfect example of what I’m talking about

    Jim Jones verse on Walk It Out Remix > Andre’s

    real talk. it was way more entertaining.

    iLL Change’s opinion = least relevant on this site

  39. Renato Pagnani Says:

    You know, what I’m eager to find out, now that we know Just has three or four tracks, and Dr. Dre probably has two or three: how many tracks does Kanye have? Timbaland? Did The Runners give Hov something? Anything from the ‘tunes?

  41. nation of moderation Says:

    highly unlikely that chris martin had anything to do with this track. think about it, new bestfriend working on the song about the old one.

    *expects people to tell me that they were parteners, since jay was a businessman…*

  42. nation of moderation Says:

    is anybody feeling that new jimmy single? i think it’s hot. he’s not spitting anythign relevant, but it’s hot.

  43. joffe jo Says:

    Check this shit out they got Biggie on South Park tonight. The kid said biggie smalls 3 times in the mirror like candy man and Biggie comes out bustin shots.

  44. Tiro Says:

    1st verse- Dame
    2nd verse- ?
    3rd verse- his nephew

    who is that 2nd verse about … i wonder

  45. 911 Says:

    Imo this song is nice but, I’ll take an introspective type song over any club type song anyday……..remembers why he doesn’t like the club stops ironing sleeve on shirt he just bought just to go 2 the club….lol.

  46. eskay Says:

    nation, all I wanna know is where were you when I was putting up incorrect links earlier today? lemme guess, in fucking school? getting an education? young man, you need to get your priorities in order.

  47. eskay Says:

    he was definitely talkiing about Bey on one of those verses. I can’t believe he spilled his guts like that about a girl he’ll barely look at in public.

  48. E From BK Says:

    What’s ill is that people want to hear an album from a 36 year old dude talking solely about pushin coke, fuckin “skeezers”(yeah I said skeezers) and bustin’ his tool. In-fuckin’-sane

  49. Tiro Says:

    … an’ sorry Es’ but Dre killed that remix, and i ain’t just sayin’ that bein’ an ATLien and all

  52. eskay Says:

    >>and i ain’t just sayin’ that bein’ an ATLien and all

    of course you are. I’m saying Jimmy’s verse cuz I’m from NY. come clean.

  53. nation of moderation Says:

    >> I can’t believe he spilled his guts like that about a girl he’ll barely look at in public

    it’s about fuckign time. im sure his fans are flattered and all, but maybe he should let her know how he feels…

  54. Nrvous Says:

    Kay “The myspace maniac” Slay just said its a Dre beat.

    First verse is fire and I’m sure he’s talking bout Dame.

  55. Shanti Says:

    I can’t believe he spilled his guts like that about a girl he’ll barely look at in public.

    ^^yeah i was thinking the same thing. i bet beyonce feels all special now.

  56. shes a fresh one! Says:

    this is the greatest fourth quarter i’ve ever experienced. thank you and have a good night.

  57. nation of moderation Says:

    but wait. he didn’t lose beyonce yet…

    *listens to track again*
    *withdraws from hov-marriage-raffle*

  58. FuckUPayMe618 Says:

    The track is fire. This gonna be the album of the year. It might bring the ball back to the east coast.(along wit nas album etc). Still cant see how ni66as deny the man skillz.

  59. shes a fresh one! Says:

    but wait. he didn’t lose beyonce yet…

    ^^ Rihanna?

  60. Tiro Says:

    2nd could be about…..

    “and honestly, at 23, i would probably love my work more than hurr”

    b) gwyneth
    c) one of the just blazettes
    d) lady sovereign
    e) let’s say mary, but on the album it’ll be bey

  72. Shanti Says:

    sounds a lil like erykah badu

  73. Mongo Slade Says:

    thsi is pretty hot, prolly will grow on me like kinddom come did.

  74. 911 Says:

    Dame, Beyonce, and nephew. Dame what doing the shit Hov expected outta him but was still gatting the same perks or what not. I think he just Bbroke up with Beyonce, I swear to ya listen really closely and Rihanna is only 19 so not hardly. Nephew murked himself redlining a 300 c……….And eskay is the reason I know all of this that’s where u place your blame……..I’m out so I guess u lost one.

  75. 911 Says:

    edit: Dame wasn’t……Gatting:getting…….fcuktards. And oh yeah I’m buying gywneth’s shit hahahahaha…..1

  76. 119 Says:

    after listening to this, kingdom come, and show me wat u got.. nas album title couldn’t b more right

  77. nation of moderation Says:

    >> I think he just Bbroke up with Beyonce

    it doesn’t necessarily have to be true, you know. he’s a rapper, he’s not on the stand or anything. and even if it were real, you do know that he didn’t JUST write and record that. he’s on a worldwide tour with beyonce right now.

    speaking of which, those pics from south africa are crack. especially of the fuckign mountain range.

  79. Jamz Says:

    I like this joint here playa! He took it back to some simple piano loop type shyt, which is refreshin’! This track is my fav so far from his leaked stuff.

  82. Jamz Says:

    This beat sounds like a Premo beat.

    You said it young’un, flyin out tonight myself to go see the nigga. I seen Nas and the nigga ripped the Hammersmith Apollo, I’m hopin Hov is gonna match it. This joint is the best of the 3, I rate it, Hov still not on his flow like on Blueprint etc but he still spittin good shit. Havin said that you never saw Biggie drop his standards……..

    Christopher Wallace > Sean Carter

  85. Big Filth a.k.a. Trill Ferrell b.k.a. The nicest MC in here for sure..AKA, "a little bit more cool, less dre" Says:

    anyways, Im out..

    this is the best song out of the 3.. if you like Jay youll prolly like this joint..

    hopefully the next one will be better though.. This shit aint bad, but it aint great..

    still laughing at eskay having “Jaydar”. ! ! haha..

    anyways..

    and just for good measure..

    NAS > Jay Z..

  86. Rathbone Says:

    This album is already looking hotter than the Black Album.

  87. iLL Change Says:

    this is the worst of the 3 tracks. “Kingdom Come” is the best. beat is too fuckin’ simple. i hope this album wont turn out like TBA, where the production doesnt flow. you got 2 real big soundin’ tracks from Just, then a weak-ass piano loop beat from Dre. leave this one off the album. or better yet, just stay retired.

    Snoop Dogg’s “Down 4 My N’s” > “Lost Ones”

    damn, i just deleted that shit song from my computer yesterday. that was harsh

  90. iLL Change Says:

    remember when the Clipse were at the sneaker pimps show bitching about how Jay was frontin’ on their album? he said “you talk about coke alot” and they said “what about the rhymes and metaphors?”

    yo Clipse, all your fuckin’ rhymes and metaphors ARE ABOUT COKE. get a grip.

  91. iLL Change Says:

    >> damn, i just deleted that shit song from my computer yesterday. that was harsh

    that was about the only ill track on No Limit Top Dogg.

    What Happened To That Boy > Lost Ones

  92. nation of moderation Says:

    you guys don’t get it do you. the song isn’t about dame, bey, or his nephew… its about nas.

    first bobby and whitney, now jay and b?

    if they cant make it, who can?

    hook on “Sound Scan” > hook on “Lost Ones”

    “Buck, Yayo and Banks is runnin’ from the sound scan” – haha classic

  96. iLL Change Says:

    did Jay really pronounce “mature” as “ma-turr”? what a cornball.

  97. nation of moderation Says:

    maybe he meant matter

  98. hiphop101 Says:

    yo this song is fire, something real and from the heart.
    good look jay.
    its hard to like something when you go in listening with hate in your blood.

  99. dronkmunk Says:

    I’m sorry I think this track is turrible.

    I like Jay. I was really hoping the comparisons to mj stopped at them both being two of the greatest to ever do what they do, but it’s obvious to me now that they have both fallen off in a similar way. I mean Jay-Z being president of def-jam iss like michael jordan playing baseball. Just fuckin’ stick to what you do. Don’t wanna rap? make beats. ghost write. But stick to the script!

    nah I understand what you saying but I’m a music fan. ain’t no way I can know something is available and not listen to it. my head would explode. but come on, artists be leaking these songs, they want you to hear them. unless the whole album is leaked you were meant to listen.

    How funny would that shit be if none of those songs were even on his album tho

    ^^Yeah gotta admit I was’nt as hyped about that Lupe cos I’d heard most of the joints before the record hit the shelves, still copped it though.

  130. DLC Says:

    Okay fuck all the hating…let’s analyze the track…First, who produced it? It sounds to me like it has to be Dre or Scott Storch, but since I haven’t of Storch being on the album, I gotta assume it’s Dre. On second thought the way the drums are sequenced actually kinda reminds me of that song that Dre prodced for Eve a couple of years ago. I would bet on Dre. Actually, I would bet a lot this is Dre. Maybe even Chris Martin on the keys, but that would seem to be kinda pointless to get him on the album and have him just play that little eight bar loop, so I doubt it. Anyway, I heard the Dre + CM track was called “Beach Chair” or something. Second, who are the verses about? Whoever called it is right, Dame, Beyonce, then his dead nephew. Anyone who hates on this is crazy – Jay Z gettin introspective about some relationships that have been pretty private yet still highly scruitinized by the media? That’s dope to me. Third, who is that on the hook? It does kinda sound like Badu at times, but I don’t think so. It’s def. not G.Paltrow, so I dont know. It will be interesting to find out who it is

  131. Two-Times Says:

    much better than anything that’s leaked recently and all of the remixes he been on… lyrically he’s getting closer to black album level but still it falls short.. some bars are REALLY sloppy.. keeps the same rhyme going to the detriment of the meaning.. the low point is his dissecting of words (he-ro-in; fi-na-ly; etc.) which comes of real fake on this beat and breaks the flow.. i think he was aiming for something along the lines of Lucifer.. not even close..

    ^^^^^^^^ I’m glad he did something like this. It’s been a while since he hasn’t flossed on a track. The subject matter is on point. He should do this more often. The song is far from wack. Anybody who says its wack is hatin’. Anybody who thinks this is absolutely amazing or ground breaking is a stan. It’s a good song, not one of his best. This is the kinda Jay I like to hear though.

  244. 456 Says:

    ^^^^^^^^ I’m glad he did something like this. It’s been a while since he hasn’t flossed on a track. The subject matter is on point. He should do this more often. The song is far from wack. Anybody who says its wack is hatin’. Anybody who thinks this is absolutely amazing or ground breaking is a stan. It’s a good song, not one of his best. This is the kinda Jay I like to hear though.

    ^yeah G7. i was a little worried when i heard that first single. but this remind me of the joints he did with scarface. he extended the lauryn hill song and applied it to his situation. and you’re right its not his greatest song but it has glints of his genius: the hook – “sorry, i’m a champion” is deep and full of feeling. remind me of the first time i heard the ‘can i live’ hook. sometimes its not enough to win.

The song is GOOD, but it’s not amazing or anything. I like it. It’s my kinda joint, but to say its easily the best song of the year is ridic

    name a song this year that is better…………u might name one to u but verse for verse this is sme grown man shit……he handled the dame dash shit with out dissing him but speakin on real shit and he broke down a mans vulnerablility for a woman……but yall don’t care about that shit yall just want th hear bbbbbbbaaaaaaaaalllllllliiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnn

    @ iceberg

    breddren, as a Jay stan your opinions hold very little weight to me. I said the song is good and that still bothers you. Lupe’s “The Cool” and “Sunshine” are both better. This Jay track in terms of subject is basically the same as Method Man’s “Say” on 4:21 so its nothing new. They’re both talking about the shit that they’ve been going through over the past year. Jay’s track is better than Meth’s, but the concept is the same.

    Peep tho, i think MOST NY rappers sound the same. Everybody’s a tough guy hustler with punchlines. And we don’t need anymore of that. We need expansion. some1 who’s gonna give u something u can’t get from Walmart (jay-z) or Ikea (Nas). Most NY=bodegas ‘cos they don’t serve the greater portion of the populations needs or wants. And i think Jay knows that, which is why he fucked with Lupe.

    I’m bored NY rap. Even Uncle Murda….how tough can u be at the end of the day? Cops come and everybody get pussy. They run or place nice.

    what proof do I need to back up my statement? statistics? I let the musik serve as proof. The 3 songs that leaked arent horrible but they arent anywhere near anything that was on Blueprint 1. (his last GREAT album might I add) He aint been the same since the L to Nas, bottomline.

  339. TYRONEBIGGUMS71 Says:

    Def jam would lose a ton of money if they dropped buddens and red right now. If ni66as like banks and puffy is struggling to sell how would buddens first week numbers look? Since they not superstars they not gon have decent numbers if the ball aint in they court(east coast)

    BUT WHAT IF BUDDENS HAD A COUPLE BANGERS WITH NAS AND HOV ON THEM WHAT IF THE LAST COUPLE YEARS YOU HEARD BUDDENS AND JAY ON AS MANY TRACKS AS YOU HEARD JEEZY AND JAY ? WHAT IF HE HAD ALL THOSE PRODUCERS COOKING SHIT UP FOR HIM ? WHAT IF ( BARE WITH ME HERE ) JAY-Z ACTUALLY PROMTOED BUDDENS IN SOMEWAY SHAPE OR FORM ( I MEAN DUDE IS ON HIS LABEL WHY NOT TRY AND HELP HIM INSTEAD OF IGNORE HIM ?)

  340. Jamz Says:

    Jay Z has nothing to fear. He’s already achieved more than 95% of the rappers that have done it, so why does he need to be worried about another rapper? It’s like Michael Jackson being intimidated by Usher’s success. No matter what Usher does in his career, he’ll never be Michael Jackson.

    MONEY rules hiphop right now, so that is what I think that has been the cause of many problems that exist.

    Saying he’s the greatest is more inflammatory, so he said that shit to get niggaz madd and get attention.

  371. Eddie Says:

    Yo I got a couple points to make on this.

    First off, stop hating on Hov, the bar has been set so high for this guy if he dropped Hard Knock Life right now you’d bash it. Hova apparently means Haters On Various Attacks. Second, stop comparing Jay to MJ on the Wizards. Michael Jordan was a basketball player, a physical athlete, who was playing high level sports in his late 30s. Jay is a rapper. Not saying that rapping ain’t hard, but its a verbal exercise, age is a positive not a negative. KRS-One’s older than Hov, he’s still doing it and he never also had to juggle a multi-million dollar corporation and being one of the most recognizable men on the planet. Also, what’s been so bad? Show Me What You Got was that generic Hov radio single, it was like a promo single, I bet it won’t even be on the album. Kingdom Come was fired up, superhero shit, y’all know you liked it. This song is ok, not my favroite, but it is just showcasing the versatility (not always a good thing). And comments about his timing been off, yeah you have the leaked tracks, all this shit gets protools makeovers anyway, so shut the fuck up.

  372. Paperstacker Says:

    iceberg nigga u dont think straight, u cant appreciate any music, u take jay z stanism to a different level, u prolly respect that man more than ur pops. i mean damn, u stay on jay dic with these comments only u can believe.

    @ BK

    Stanism is a tough language for me to understand but i’ll do my best. Your hero Hov is afraid of what Budden can do. Plain and simple. I’m a Hov fan and Budden fan. I wouldn’t mind hearing Budden album some time soon. Haters say Budden has no fan base and blah blah, but his label put him in that predicament dummies.
    Jay is one of the greatest for sure. That’s without doubt. But your hero is not really supporting real hiphop if he’s co-signing acts like Lady Sov and Rick Ross. Ross is crawling right now. He just crawled to gold. That’s a disappointment for the label. I know Budden can do at least Ross numbers right now. Hov doesn’t want him to shine or anybody else on the east coast.

    The problem is labels only know how to promote one way. If they could accept the fact that some people are niche guys and spend their promo money with that in mind, they wouldn’t take L’s when smaller artists do 80,000. They want smaller artists to come all out of character to live up to the gold/platinum promo TRL and all that angle that they want to push it from.

    ^ty. you budden’s fans remind of knicks fans during the jordan era. if the refs didn’t cheat for jordan…if starks didn’t go 0-8 in the fourth quarter…if patrick ewing could fly…the knicks woulda taken it. what is with all these hypotheticals? first just because joe sold 500,000 on his first effort does not mean he automatically sells that on his second- witness the once platinum artist named Lloyd Banks. Lloyd has fifty on his single and was promoted pretty fucking well. Second, Jeezy has a following all his own and will go plat his next time around because the majority of america can feel that thug motivation sound. i remember some white people from alabama hearing some jeezy in my car and was who is that? i was fucking shocked. believe me, buddens does not have that appeal. skills, talent, etc just doesn’t always add up to marketability and these big labels kinda know this. no matter how much money you poured into promotion the roots album would not have done that well. it will be the same with papoose. all these fantasy scenarios you are coming up with for buddens to have mainstream appeal are just that-fantasy. mood music 2 is an underground classic but that is all it will ever be.

Joe is joe, he aint a hardcore wanna be thug, he aint all over the drug scene, he dont talk about how much money he got, he doesnt paint the how can i say (Lupe’s Daydreamin verse 2) picture. joe is somebody that regular on the grind mu’fuckas can feel…essential to everyday man, like a cup of coffee the the everyday worker. thats hard to advertise in a market so dumbed down today. people dont wanna be sold something they are, they wanna be sold something that will make them feel better about themselves and take them up another level in life. they like the stars cause it makes them believe they to can be there one day. joey aint a star, hes a real dood. now a days in music reality, is boring.

    … nope, no gold … and again, im a fan … but while i’ll pay BestBuy or Earshot retail prices for JayZ, Nas, Lupe or WuTang affiliates, Joey gets downloaded …

  437. icon (trillbert arenas) Says:

    I’ve kept “Broken Wings” in heavy rotation, since Eskay posted it, but I gotta agree with the notion that, despite the fact that Buddens is one of the best on the mic, he just doesn’t have whatever that intangible “it” is to make niggas cross over and do big numbers…I’ll support him regardless, because I consider myself to be a real hip hop head, and lyrics are 95% of the equation to me (Joey is nice with his)….but let’s be honest, how many true hip hop heads do you know? Do you really think there are a million plus out there that appreciate lyricism and originality? Shit, even Jada had to go with a gimmicky concept to cross over (that “Why” joint, which, by the way, bit Common’s “the Questions” from Like Water for Chocolate”, and even Common had to affiliate with a crossover clown to move 750K units) For the most part, to go plat, rappers have to water down their formula or reach to diversify their fanbase, and Joe already tried that and failed with that “Pump it Up” nonsense….with that joint, he converted a few non fans, and detracted some of his hardcore supporters, which had a net effect of each point of view cancelling out the other….

    Jay-Z probably has left Joe on the shelf, because he doesn’t need another flop on his resume, especially at this point in time where hip hop is going thru a transition and even heavily hyped cats with dope product put up bricks (F&L, anyone?)—-Joe Buddens’ window of opportunity is closing, and I hope that he stays hungry enough to slide through that bitch before it closes all the way….Sorry for the term paper, lol….

    ^^ i see the hype that is built up about her, but i think its overrated, she’s not unttalented by far, but she isnt the mind-blower ppl seem to try to make her out to be and her songs, while catchy and fun, are so ignorant and elementary they kill brain cells.

    Let’s drop the Buddens talk now. Whoever keeps bringin him up is definitely a Buddens stan. If anyone is bringin NJ back it’s Redman. But back to the biz, this song is hot. It adds depth to the album and I am glad to hear it on here. Whoever said bring back “Hard Knock Life” again is a couple of centuries late. Not to diss Hard Knock, I liked the album, but when looking at his albums in its entirety, the reason Hard Knock is mentioned is b/c it was his first platinum album and 1 million people finally got it. Fast forward to this shit. Beat is dope, content is personal, and effect is def b/c it adds depth to the album. I can tell that most of the cats hatin on here are young minded…..Sickamore/The 106 and Park generation.

    I wasn’t goin’ say nothing about this, but, after listening to the track the 4th time…Here’s my disclaimer-I am older than a lot of these folks and clearly I listen to more than just beats…It’s hard for me to hear dude talk about losing his nephew and the young man’s child coming into the world and then see the posts these guys put up about some of these other rappers. The tihs this dude talking about and the tihs they talking about ain’t in the same realm. I appreciate all the many facets of our genre…I guess for me, though, dude be taking it places I can feel. Like Comm, Cee-Lo, Thought, TIP, NYOIL (even)…So much I could say on the subject, but I’ll stop…It’s good tihs…

  553. M.I.M.S. Says:

    The thing is simply that is JayZ so people will automatically love and hate it… its just the nature of people. It surprises me how many “Is this a Dre beat?” I’m hearing… It also suprises me that the context of the versus are taken to new “philisophical**” heights. If you dont know who produced the beat… does it matter?. I personal think its a cool song… he’s talking from the heart, even tho i know he can do better. I like Kingdom Come and his other jump off “Show Me What You Got”, even tho the main hook and the beat is a rip from the old Public Enemy song by the same name. All three tracks are good in my book. Are they up to “JayZ” standards… depends on what the fans say, but I won’t compare i’ll just enjoy or not enjoy his new tracks as they come out… each track has its own merit. Thats what i feel. GMS, TSU… BCDG BITCH!!!!

    YOOOO i kant believe yall sleepn on dis kidd… he too deep 4 yall man.. if u really listen to da song he has a powerful message … if ur highly educated u kall underdstand him.. im in college and into lyrics.. y u think he got so much respect… bcuz he dont always need a UPBEAT track to ripp.. all he need is a couple of instruments like on DEAR SUMMER.. did u realize that he talkn bout dame in 1st verse, Beyonce in the second verse n his lil cuz in the 3rd….now hear it again n see if u feel the same way…

  557. brookelyn Says:

    I like the track, it’s simple, it’s personal, it’s real. Alot of people will never have a yacht, half million dollar cars and crazy acre homes, but we can all relate to broken friendships, relationships and lost loved ones. He’s showing the human side, I, personally like to see that in an artist and no matter how big Jay gets he finds a way to give you that amongst all the other things. The game has gotten so diluted now that you recieve criticism for being human…lol. It sounds crazy but people are getting brainwashed by someone saying they have beef or talking about killing that when they hear something that’s close to everybody’s reality, they hate it. Hopefully things will change, but, I’m an optimist……….

  558. sweetL Says:

    Back to the point – about the song.

    Whos the singer?

    Its not beyonce, its not mary, it doesnt sound like gwenyth but thats not to say its not. I heard speculation that its marsha from floetry, i dont think so. Lady sovereign doesnt sing – or if she does, not anywhere near that well.

    I wonder if it might be madeleine peyroux.

    verse 1 is clearly directed at past business associates. I dont think its fair to say its just dame, cause him and dame were never really friends. Think about that last beans freestyle that seemed very open ended, i think him and jay have some communicating to do.

    verse 2… ‘i dont think its meant to b – b’ has to be about beyonce. its surprisingly candid for jay, and this impresses me.

    verse 3..about his nephew who died, and how he feels responsible.

    this is a more grown up hiphop, and thats a good thing.

    how anyone can think its about nas, is beyond me. thats just a stupid thing to say.

    If you hate jay you wont like this.

  559. Stitched Wrists Says:

    IMO, the drums are spot on with the FIRST track on the busta album (shit with Marsha from Floetry and Q-Tip). Only difference is the snares have a reverb or something on the busta track, here they’re almost dry. Anyways, this track is heat even though he bit the Lauren Hill track of the same name from her Miseducation album….

  560. h-block Says:

    in the first verse his talkin about the break up
    but this track is firee no doubt

  561. b Says:

  562. ice Says:

    You got to know a lil about what went on to understand this track. I think its hot and it explains his mindset about the whole situation. If you think this is wack you should question your intelligence. The dude is talkin bout how he feels after his nephew died. It’s just real and I feel that it’s just what hip hop needs some real emotion into the art.

  567. Morgan Says:

    SHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiTTT SON!
    This song is so vicious right now.But i think its kinda fxcked up how he kinda is breaking up with beyonce over his sng [verse two] but still,best song he ever made!

  568. dabee Says:

    I have believe the person singing the hook on this track is an artist named Res. She has one album..and is mostly known to collaborate with Talib Kweli

  569. Khiya Says:

    The girl singing the hook is Marsha who used to be in Floetry who is now signed to Aftermath. She is English for those that dont know.

    The Beat is produced by Dr Dre.

    The first verse is about Dame
    The second verse COULD be about Beyonce??
    The third verse is about Khaliq who was Jay Z nephew

    Whether you like the song or not, at least he gave you something to think about.

  572. Alan Says:

    This song talks about painful problems with friends and co-workers (Dame: verse 1), it also talks about relationship problems (Beyonce: Verse 2) and finally it talks about the death of a close loved one (His nephew: Verse 3).
    These are things that everyone can relate to at some point in life. I, for one am glad to hear Jay being honest and talking about something real that everyone can relate to. I love it when rappers let us get a glimps of what is going on in their lives. I think people can respect honesty.
    I just hope that “the faith that was started” in Jay’s life is true faith in Jesus. That’s something we all need…the Saviour to save us from ourselves, and our sin.

  573. ebz Says:

    It’s alright but i’ve been hearing it’s about beyonce’ and then I hear it’s about dame.

  574. Knockout Says:

    Are yall serious? Of course it’s about Beyonce’ He says “B” in the damn song.This is some bullshit. He ‘s crying cause she love her music more than him.
    Her music made her a millionaire, not his Joe Camel lookin’ ass. I always thought she couls do betteranyway. Fuck em’
    The song sounds like he is bitter and wants some fuckin’ attention because they broke up. Who cares. People break up everyday.
    He sucks and this song proves it.
    Jay, Jay Evans Get over it.
    B said he was cheatin’ anyway.

  575. Knockout Says:

    Oh and the song is featuring Erykah Badu. Not Res, Corinne Bailey Rae, or Marsha from Floetry. Nice try though.

  576. eskay Says:

    ^actually it’s Chrissette Michelle, but thanks.

  577. Los Says:

    This track is the realest shit out right now, real talk. I can’t believe so many of you guys are sleeping on this. Haven’t we heard enough of Hov to realize he’s a lyricist? Why must everything be a club track talkin about gold bottles and bars full of nonsense. There isn’t 1 formula to make a hit… back to what we all know, introspective shit we can all relate to. Switched up his flow and road the beat like a pro, as usual. Classic.

    Again, this damn confusion about the verses, guess some people don’t read or listen to the words this man speaks.
    Verse 1 – Dame …friendship (lost one)
    Verse 2 – Beyonce …relationship/love (lost one)
    Verse 3 – Nephew …relative [death] (lost one)

  578. Rashanna Says:

    You can say what you want..But how can you hate when basically if you look @ it this way..He’s just mentally ending broken friendships/relationships/death!It’s just his way of moving past things. How can you knock somebody for just dealing with the pain that has been cause’d in their life?I fucks with Jigga!

    This is music for grown folks, so obviously lots of people won’t be able to relate to it. It’s an emotional song, and still people are complaining that he doesn’t spit multi cyllables etc. Stupid shit…

  583. K Says:

    all u haters out there shud shut up. If u actually take the time to listen to what jay says, and understand wut he means in a literal sense with a little bit of knowledge about his backround you’d realize this song is hot. This is why hip-hop is dead. because now a days the only thing that u people like is shit that tells u to snap your fingers and lean wit it roc wit it. Take notice Jay is the only rapper who can make a song that sounds like this, hot, and pull it offwith the class he did. thank Jay and Nas for keepin hip hop alive.

  584. Nell. Says:

    Thank you Los, and others for pointing that out.
    ive just listened to this song 5 times. Now, I honestly hate rap music. Detest it. ABHOR it. and i dont mean ALL rap, i still respect old school and underground. But listening to this track actually reminds me of why some rap can still live. Im not saying its the greatest song ever, but if i ACTUALLY downloaded it and sat down to listen to it, it must mean something. It is his way of attacking or removing what has hurt him, through lyrics. I dont know if anyone may know this,(sarcastically speaking)but lyrics are used for self expression, not to snap and lean and walking it out to a bunch or retards over a beat.

    This track is the realest shit out right now, real talk. I can’t believe so many of you guys are sleeping on this. Haven’t we heard enough of Hov to realize he’s a lyricist? Why must everything be a club track talkin about gold bottles and bars full of nonsense. There isn’t 1 formula to make a hit… back to what we all know, introspective shit we can all relate to. Switched up his flow and road the beat like a pro, as usual. Classic.

    Again, this damn confusion about the verses, guess some people don’t read or listen to the words this man speaks.
    Verse 1 – Dame …friendship (lost one)
    Verse 2 – Beyonce …relationship/love (lost one)
    Verse 3 – Nephew …relative [death] (lost one)
