    I rather invest my time and energy supporting my child then giving up cash. At least I know 100% of that is going to my child rather then leaving it up to the discretion of the courts and the mother.

    ^^

    Its not about giving it to the kid in most cases. Folks get upset when they don’t trust that the baby’s mom is spending it properly.

    I think that’s where the frustration comes from. I got a homie that had two kids with this bitch & when they broke up she got addicted to meth or something. Well CPS took the kids & she told them he was an unfit father & wasn’t giving her money so they still garnish his wages even though she don’t have them anymore.

    They are with a foster family.

  63. Remixznflow Says:

    First verse wasnt worth shit

    Second verse was better…

    Then kanye came in like “nigga fuck you”

    It will get mad spins though. that much is certain.

Nas was at hospital at time of delivery but wasn’t in room when she gave birth. Now we can officially say congrats! More details manana.

    Its not about that young lady, the premise of latching onto a dude and making him a meal ticket for life is what is unfair! I come from a background where my pops ddn’t support my upkeep… Moms did what she had to do. Kelis claiming she needs over 30k to maintain is pure bullshit and if you condone it then your character is flawed. *no shots* seize with the juvenile sensitive cus’n as well.

    ^^simple…. child support payments for the avg joe making 35K a yr could potentially leave that man homeless or living w/ moms. But a millionaire moves from a mansion to a luxury townhome. 20% of 35K affect you more than 20% of 3 mill. At the end of the day…. the millionaire is still rich….but avg joe is flat busted.

    Gravity, I think you’re underestimating how much it takes to care for a child. Yeah, 44K is steep but it’s within Nas’ means. Yeah, it’s up to Kelis to make sure that the money is being used appropriately but if Nas doesn’t trust her than he may want to question why he wifed her in the first place.

    If you are in your child’s life and provide, high amounts of child support don’t matter. But if you make the conscious decision to not be in your child’s life, cut the damn check. Period.

    If mother and father can reasonably come to a conclusion about how to care for the child, it doesn’t get to this point. And if you don’t like the number, you have the right to petition the court.

    Every state has different rules about CP. Some states, it’s a certain % of a dude’s income a month.

    All I’m saying that is if you seriously question your investments (monetary or otherwise) into your child, you need to look yourself in a mirror and ask yourself whether you are man enough. Period.

    ^^^^^^^

    Its not about questioning one’s investment into his child. Its about fairness and what makes economic/financial sense! Spending all the loot on frivolous expenditures now only to be broke in the future when its really needed is not smart at all. @ 480k/year both Kelis, Knight and Nas will be living on welfare in about 12 years. Is that wats up? I think not.

    LOL

    ^^^^^

    IMO Ra did his thing but Hov went in quadruple extra hard on that track. The sonning of Murda Inc, the wordplay was crazy… Hov’s achilles heel is him not dying in his prime, ni99as don’t like to crown you when you alive.

    the album should be solid. i dont question jay’s ability to construct and produce good music. I question his ability to make those “hits” we need to keep him firmly in his place as the best out. And i just dont see it anymore. The thrill is gone… so is the spark. Much as i think game is a fucking idiot, he did have a point. maybe its time to make moves in another direction.

    On the other hand from hov’s standpoint. Why? Niggas arent producing like they should. so why not continue to make music….

    George, you lost me…

    Do you realize where we are. This is Nah Right, where the penis to vagina ratio is like 34,560 to 3. It’s not fair to only have one voice, so I provide that voice.

    I’m passionate about these things because being a women is important to me. I’m not going to sit here and let some dudes make overreaching generalizations about women without giving them another perspective.

    Your opinion about where I stand says more about you than it does about me. What? I’m supposed to sit back and let some chick get blasted? You know me better than that, DBlock. I will call out a chick on the regular but there are certain issues that I take a stand on.

    And as for the ethics point. What are you trying to say? At the end of the day, the ethical approach to dealing with societal and gender issues is to side with the man? That’s stupid and you’re smarter than that.

    All I’m doing is defended who I am. Period. I’m not going to giggle my way out of situation like this.

    Kanye wins emphatically…..jay’s flow is harder though, but lyrically I have to rock with Kan

  312. desario Says:

    agree with what most people are saying… rihanna and kanye make the song, jay’s verses are sub-par by his standards. i like those guitars too

  313. jeff Says:

    straight radio hit………..

    aint no two ways about it

    //we are lazers!!!!!

    this song is nothing special….and am i hearing juiceman adlibs?

  315. Kid Icarus Says:

    lol how people say Jay got murdered on his own shit. But didnt Kanye…produce …the Track??? So you figure he already knew the direction of it..so. The bodied on your own shit is kind of pointless on this one. Just good music though. We are…

  316. thelupend Says:

    The Track is pretty nice.As for Nas paying 44,000 dollars a month on child support is Crazy.It’s not like she doesn’t have a career why can’t she drop another album or do some shit to earn money.She’s lazy.The bitch is probably gonna buy some new clothes after the first check comes. I Think we all should start a “Help Nas Charity Foundation” so he doesn’t go broke.

    ON THE REAL I’M NOT EVEN KIDDING, THE BITCH IS A GOLDIGGER

  317. lefty Says:

    maybe that story bout jay and kayne fighting backstage at a concert had some legs after all.

    *thanks kanye for expressing hisself through ugly sneakers so he don’t carry none of that “creativity” to the rap music he making lately.*

    good beat and hook…but nothing new. I expect more feeling from jay-z…hes losing it.

  320. Seth Gueko Says:

    jay rocks the song
    flow maybe weak
    not hunger for mo
    but forbes 1 2 3
    is the reason lol

  321. ruben818 Says:

    It’s cool…. Jay is alright , he aint bringing to much… Kanye did kill jay on this one… and Rhianna needs another beat down for the wack hook.

    anyone wana post the kanye verse here?

  325. Kid Icarus Says:

    fuck the otherside they jealous

  326. Rick Bon Jovi Says:

    why is everyone making this a competition?! they on the same team for christ sake! The song itself is pretty dope, can we all agree on that instead of comparing these two. Jay been rapping for about 15 years now and he still the greaest in my eyes, Ye is just new and fresh. Thats how i see it.

  327. doodoohead Says:

    this song is ooook. without the ye verse i wouldn’t even listen to this

  328. Kid Icarus Says:

    Jay does set the tone on this track though. With that line “We are yeah i said it We are /this Roc Nation get ya fatigues on/ all black everything”. Kanye was good too but his verse is like Jays… you expect that. with lines like “butt big enough to swallow a g string/ and up front she got bee stings” Overall its a good song. It a radio direct cut. BP3 is on its way to be another classic.

  329. GMZ Says:

    Same team????? There ain’t no greatness team my dude. Both of these niggaz is tryin to make history. MJ respects Kobe, but MJ still wants to be remembered as better than that nigga and vice versa.

    If you think for one second that Kanye didn’t get on the track with full intention of trying to merk Jay you are buggin. It seems like sometimes Jay lays his verse and doesn’t care what anyone else says when they hop on his track….like how did he let Nas get away with that line on Success without ever addressing that?????????????

  330. bk Says:

    They don’t need Jay on this joint. Rih and Ye are whats hot right now. Jay played himself to many times, he only gets respect now cause he’s paid.

  331. bk Says:

    …but,Rih still can’t sing her runs are horrible. I really want her to be great tho. lol

  332. GMZ Says:

    Worst enemies, wanna be my best friends,
    Best friends wanna be enemies, like that’s whats in,
    But I don’t give a fuck, walk inside the lion’s den,
    Take everybody’s chips about to cash them in….
    – Nas’ verse on Success

    Worst enemies wanna be friends = Jay
    Lion’s den = Def Jam
    Everybody’s chips to cash in = Jay/Def Jam cuttin Nas’s checks

    ….I am Hov fan…but still

    fuck what you heard this joint is fuckin hard, none

    they all ripped it

  338. Los Says:

    btw this shit is *not* CDQ … it’s a CBR 192kbps transcode from ~128kbps. CDQ is 850-1000kbps (FLAC/ALAC/etc). the garbage you ppl keep on your hard drive is disgusting b

    i thought yall were music lovers, and you lose 60-70% of sound fidelity with these garbage encodes. i blame the leaker for leaking this shit in a lossy encode but calling it CDQ is a far stretch

    [...] for the albums features, he said that MGMT, Keed Coodie, Drake, Mr Hudson, Kanye West and Rihanna are on there for the moment, but all that can change by the time he has to hand it in. [...]

  341. sol fraze Says:

    If anybody seriously thinks Kanye killed Jay on that Run This Town track, you need to reevaluate your lyrical criteria (no stannery). Somebody tell me, honestly, what line Kanye spit that you actually thought was dope? With the Eminem verse, Em dropped a classic verse against a very good Jay verse that got eclipsed. Kanye did not have any truly notable lines in that verse (and I am a Kanye fan since pre-Dropout). Jay didn’t drop anything mind blowing either, but his lines are definitely SMARTER than Kanye’s. It’s a sad day in hip hop when intelligent rhyming is considered by “hip hop heads” to be murked by flashy but otherwise unremarkable wordplay.

    “Riding with their Dillingers/ I’ll get more in Depp If you boys really real enough” >>>>> “Butt big enough to swallow a G string/ And up front she got bee stings”

  342. darck man Says:

    This song without Rihanna would be better. Is funny cuz Jay-Z helps Rihanna will return but this bitch untalented for black music just like white people….. she’s fake! Ugh!

    Brothers and sisters open your eyes, whites have raped our culture and continue to do this due to stupid black  people which work and trust the white!

    hip-hop is dead!

    rap is dead!

    r&b is dead!

  344. A Pissed off Person Says:

    Who ever said Jay-Z needs to go sit down needs to go somewhere and sit down. Why the hell do people expect this man to rap like he did in 1996. He is not the same person he’s not the same rapper. If he did rap like he did in 96 then yall motherfuckers would STILL have a problem…GET OVER IT. Either way his verse was still better than all the other GARBAGE that’s out know. I’m sick and tired of people comparing Jay-Z to Jay-Z it doesn’t fuckin matter because he’s still one of the best rappers ever. If he did another song like Dead Presidents (hot song) then you would have a problem. If he did another Soon You’ll Understand then you would have a problem. If he did another You must love me then YOU WOULD HAVE A PROBLEM. GET OVER IT. It does not matter because he’s still Jay-Z and he will still rap circles around your favorite rapper. So stop comparing Jay-Z to Jay-Z cause either way he’s go win he is one of the greatest and his first verse was HOT!!! So get OVER IT. PS The Game is GARBAGE . Hop off of Jay’s stuff

  345. DezyDiablo Says:

    Kanye murdered Jay-Z on his own shit

  346. DYODYO Says:

    Damn yo i think affion crockett was the one that did jay’s verse.

  347. tree Says:

    omfg… fucking *dead* at the first 10 seconds sounding like OJ DA JEWMAN was providing his adlibs for this song…. lemme find out…….. *daps* mr.papajohn delivery boy.. what up?

  348. Skilla Says:

    Hov’s vocals sound low on this joint and the beat didn’t change (mix-wise) like on kanye verse (suspect), otherwise it’s a hot track.

  349. Teddy Says:

    meh average shit hook seems like an attempt to create a T.I. live your life single + kanye killed jay on his own shit damn jays delivery is getting slack compare his flow on this to the energy on 4alarm Blaze this song its pretty forgettable he seems more concerned with how wispery he can make his lines then coming with it too much swag not enough potency all his bars these days sound lazy and his always ending the end of every bar with an extended wisper this isn’t the hov from hovi baby remix or its like that or friend or foe 98

    I get $9.23…once, maybe twice a month child support.
    For guys that are supportive of their children.physically, emotionally, etc.
    I do not think they should be required to pay much. But dead beat ass dudes like my kids father needs to forcibly raped by some bad guys…. Its ridiculous, and it hurts the children also. If you hide, quit jobs…and just say the hell with it. You are so wrong…. Im not saying the women are right. But each circumstance is different.
