    The thing about Jay Z is that people forget that if he couldn’t rap he would NOT be where he is today.

    Rapping opened the door for all the other business ventures, it is what it is.

    Just like LBJ was born with crazy athleticism, Jay Z was born with the ability to rap better than anyone else.

    highschool dropout from a single mother raised 5 person household made himself a multi millionaire

    ^^

    the highschool dropout

    who made his first load of money off of selling drugs – and by extension, fucking up the opportunities and chances of others in his community

    who was lucky enough to dodge getting locked under rico laws, but also get it in before giuliani came in and shut shit down

    who lived in nyc, one of the richest & largest mixing grounds for opportunity in the nation then til now

    who was fortunate enough to have access to niggas who were already breaking in the industry

    who made his own break during a particularly profitable era in that industry

    who was the one who made it out of dozens who tried and failed

    who rose through the ranks before 2013, which stands as the year where upward mobility is the most difficult thing to do in decades, especially for areas with high concentration of african-americans

    who is the same man who has niggas hanging from his nuts; the same niggas who sit online and tell other niggas their hopes and dreams are “unrealistic”

    you kidding me or what?

  3. Gob Bluth Says:

    Lets be real here just by being born in America we are better off than 3/4 of the worlds population

    Jay took advantage & made the most of his opportunities, niggas should look at that & try to do the same instead of waiting for him to come save them, that’s all i’m saying

    stop waiting on niggas Get churn

  4. Casket Face Says:

    I’m offended by that because first of all, this is going to sound arrogant, but my presence is charity.

    Fuck out of here, YOU-ARE-A-RAPPER …nigger.

    Only in America does a former drug dealer become a national hero ha

  6. The Architek Says:

    niggas are so full of shit, man

    they get a morsel of success and suddenly, anybody can do it

    they’re the rule as opposed to exception

    brainwashed

    try to make it seem like niggas are crabs pulling others down, when a lot of crabs at the top are pushing niggas to the bottom

    Thank you, not a modicum of altruism in that nigger’s blood …that Trayvon Martin shit he pulled last Saturday showed me the extent of his concern.

    You was suckin’ the city’s dick tryna get a permit for David Letterman’s outside performance. Now YOUR presence is charity?

    that NIGGER is the worst type of black man there is, don’t even understand his position NOR the concept of freedom.

    Shut your at NIGGER lips. Negroid degenerate.

    ^Sure chance comes into play, but Jay wouldn’t be where he is today if he didn’t persevere after every label turned him down, he kept at it & it payed off in the end

    & lately it’s jus been PURE hatred..least JDS got a premense 4 his argument smfh

    ^^

    and what i’m saying is

    inspiration means nothing if when you step outside all you see is destitution

    other countries ain’t got shit to do with anything

    a lot of niggas are just looking for an opportunity. not support.

    if jay wants to say it’s not his problem, then fine. but he shouldn’t act like his mere existence and success somehow empowers anyone else other than jay z

    and it’s not okay to shit on the nigga whose shoulders he’s standing on. especially when he’s put in more work to help other niggas.

    Imagine living in the pre-war United States as a slave, and you saw Harriet Tubman in the news papers EVERYDAY, rappin’ about all the illest shit she acquired up north and saying slick shit like “y’all should get free like me, I’m richer than y’all”

    The white man own you nigga’s souls, he controls how you treat your own people.

    I been where Jay is on a much smaller level, them crackas don’t care about you or the liberation of your people.

    It took me to put everything on the line for MY OWN PEOPLE and see how many crackas withdrew their support for me to realize this system is BROKEN on ground level.

    For me to truly succeed my BROTHERS and SISTERS have to be able to celebrate with me. And believe me son, we all ain’t free in the mind.

    I chill with my family sometimes and want to cry cause they so lost in the pain caused by this white man and sustained by like minded ignorant niggas like Jay-Z.

    So when niggas talkin’ about what I’m doing for the community, I been puttin’ in political work since 2009-2010.

    And this new stew I got cookin’ in the kitchen, I know I’m gonna die behind it, and I’m prepared to mentally. I know it’s comin’…stay tuned.

  26. A-1 Says:

    & he was wrong go’n @ Harry Belafonte but since Mr Belafonte singled out Jay HE DOES have da right 2 respond..BUT I’ont agree wit how he responded doe..no

  27. ***biggumskiller*** Says:

    Harry Belafonte gave up a platinum music career to help black people
    He had the FIRST platinum record
    Gave up being an entertainer to be an activist
    Jay-z would NEVER do this
    Case closed

    okay

    but compare that with the legion of nobodies, never-beens, and should-have-beens that followed all the rules and still couldn’t touch his hem

    niggas is gullible

    this is that rainmaker steez

    the hundreds who worked hard and failed didn’t work hard enough or weren’t good enough

    but the one who makes it is the shining example of how hard work pays off

    even though that also gets undermined when clear failures rise to the top too

  29. ***biggumskiller*** Says:

    What’s good doe
    It’s Friday
    Fuck the politics
    Both Harry and Jigga living better than b
    Real life ether

    Preach!

    Without giving away too much I sacrificed financial security and local celebrity because my brothers and sisters NEEDED me.

    I could’ve took shit a whole nother way, but I thought what type of message am I sending to people who believed in me. What message am I sending out about blacks and violence.

    Not retaliating to ignorant niggas who are currently “winning” (by ignorant nigga standards) was the best thing that happened to me.

    Cost me a nervous breakdown, therapy, almost filing for bankruptcy, and tons of relationships…I was broken down to a molecular level. But NOW I possess something they can never take from me. And I plan to share it with the world. Most importantly my black people.

    It’s comin’, stay tuned…almost 2 years in the making.

  34. Free J Says:

    Talking shit about that melt that he had.

    @CP – that “be a man about it” line was actually about how I shoulda spoke to brown instead of jumpin str8 to dissin him and puttin him out there like that…

    I hurt feelings, oh well.
