  11. MJ Says:

    Jay really is that dude.

    He’s an example of how to be a legend without the requirement of dying young.

    Kurt…Pac…Big…Pun…be clear, they got popped or had that heart attack before they turnt corny.

    Jay was corny for a minute when he tried to do his grown man thing but Yeezy made sure to keep dude stylish and relevant – be clear – without Yeezy, Jay would have been a stereotype, a joke…dude was wearing button-ups, baggy jeans, and all-white Air1′s…JC Penney steez…Yeezy said “Hold up Hov, you gon body yourself with that wack shit”…Hov gotta thank Yeezy for giving him a new lease on life…bet that.
