Fred Hampton, Jr. Responds To Jay-Z's Verse On "Murder To Excellence"

The son of the slain Black Panther Party leader takes aim at Hova over a line from the "Watch the Throne" track.

In the recent song "Murder to Excellence" off Jay-Z and Kanye West's award-winning Watch the Throne, Hova spits the line, "I arrived on the day Fred Hampton died/Uh, real niggas just multiply," referencing how the Brooklyn titan was born on the same day in which Black Panther chairman Fred Hampton was murdered by officers during a FBI raid. While Hov intended the rhyme as a sign of respect for the costs Hampton paid for his political activity, not everyone is responding kindly.

At a recent screening of The Black Power Mixtape: 1967-1975 at the University of Chicago, Fred Hampton's son Fred Hampton, Jr. responded to the Roc Nation impresario's recent song. Referring to Jay as "Slave-Z" during a panel discussion after the screening, Hampton, Jr. said that the line was as distasteful and as it was factually inaccurate.

"Fred Hampton didn't die; he was assassinated," said Hampton Jr. "Saying Fred Hampton died is like the school teacher telling students that Christopher Columbus discovered America."

Check out the Ruby Hornet's complete write-up on the film screening and the audience's response to Hampton, Jr.'s comments. Neither Jay-Z nor Kanye West have responded to Hampton, Jr.'s stance on the song.

    I'm just curious, what usually happens when someone gets assassinated? Don't they usually DIE. Some people just like to exaggerate and blow things out of proportion. Jay-z clearly wasn't being disrespectful.

  • Shawn

    The man died at the end of the day. Weather he got killed, or he killed himself. It's still death. The sad thing is jayz was actually praising him for what he stand for. For Fred jr to come out and call jayz a slave that's mess up. That's hatred build up inside of him. We blacks got to support one another. Jayz did a lot for his community. Bought the Barclay stadium to bk and most of the employees are from the pjs in bklyn. You can thank jayz for that. Gave a lot people jobs in bk. Fred Hampton was a G. But his son is a str8 hater! Do your research before you put somebody down. All jayz said was I arrived on the same day Fred Hampton died. How is that a disrespect to the late Fred? Man Fred jr you need to go to bed with that bullshit.

    Dude got too much time on his hands he didnt disrespect his dad at all, fred need to find another way to get his name in the news

    • Tom

      It is very disrespectful if you understood what Fred Hampton and the Black Panther Party stood for. Fred Hampton was a revolutionary communist leader and an inspiration to the oppressed blacks and all other oppressed people. He taught the people stand up for themselves and create an egalitarian society. Jay-Z does absolutely nothing for the community or for the class consciousness of the working class. He's a petite bourgeois douche.

    free em all : this aint the first time that Chairman fred jr POCC/BPCC had trouble with (rockefeller ) !

    assination, natural death, homicide or suicide you still die @ the end of the day...so he died!!!!!

    Without question I possess political differences from such forces as esteemed author and poet Maya Angelou. However, whenever provided an opportunity to reference petty bourgeoisie forces. Or when possible bourgeoisie forces. I attempt to seize the time. For as David Walker in the late 1800s pointed out in David Walkers appeal. The most intelligent of African descent can draw an analysis and it would come under suspicion. Then a white person from any walk of life can state something and it is taken as fact. On a number of occasions novice forces have questioned me as to why is it that some individuals and organizations recognize the importance of respecting their respective titles, terms, quotes, etc..They stress President this, Reverend such and such, Professor that, Dr. on and onHowever, when it comes to the masses or those from the valley. They feel it cool to misquote, mischaracterize, give no credit, let alone acknowledge respective titles. So when it occurs with petty bourgeoisie forces you hear the issue raised as to how important it is to keep quotes, positions, etc. in context. Examples include but are not limited to the uproar from negroe radio stations in response to White nationalist ruling class media not respecting President Barack Obamas title, or that of slanderous statements slung at the First lady of the US. Or as that wit the case point at hand. In a Chicago 9/15/11 Tribune perspective by Cory Franklin he comments on the position, and rightful position that I might add. That Maya Angelou had issue with the editing of the quote by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that was placed on the recently revealed memorial statue in DC. The contradiction went as follows; Two months before Dr. King was assassinated, he said at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, If you want to say that I was a drum major for justice. Say that I was a drum major for righteousness. And all of the other shallow things will not matter. But to make the words fit on the statue, the exact quote had been shortened to read as I was a drum major for justice, peace and righteousness. Maya Angelou positioned, and again rightfully so. That that quote out of context made Dr. King look like a arrogant twit. And that he was anything but that. From our office, the streets. I cannot count on how many occasions we receive calls from those of other respective classs or those that have been conditioned to maintain a reverence for those of another class. With such remarks as ;This is Minister such and such, Alderman this, Dr. that, etc..And could Fred blah, blah, blah. In fact they have been so class conditioned that a pig could be literally kicking their ass or an avaricious greedy businessman talking to them like they are beneath the bottom of the ground. And these masochists existing in their mass conditions respond yes Officer, I understand Mr. President, etc.. This should not be misconstrued as a position of arrogance or ego tripping. But that of keeping things in correct context and order. One time a journalist wanted to attach me to another organization for sensational purposes. I replied with an inquiry if I could credit her with being from the Chicago Tribune as opposed to the Sun-Times in which she actually wrote for. She retorted, definiitely not!. I then said oh, its cool for you to do. But not that of a then 25 year old nappy head African from the masses. Good for the goose, not good for the gander? Good for the bourgeoisie and the petty bourgeoise, not good for the masses?

  • Jemille Xhyphennegro Roberts

    The late great Malcolm X had assessed, When they cant stop it, they will attempt to co-opt it, water it down, make it out to be something it aint to be. Min. Huey P. Newton stated that the state recognizes the importance of euphemisms. In cases of poetic injustice we can look back at such examples in which on the stage of an Ophrah Winphrey taping. Winphrey said that when Malcolm X said by any means necessary he meant politically, educationaly, or economically. When the man made it perfectly clear when he stated the ballot or the bullet. The ruling class referencing the brutal concentration camps i.e.; Attica, Folsom, Stateville (Deathville), etc. as correctional facilities. Whether it is accompanied with a catchy beat or that of a brutal beating. Whether it rolls off the lips of a negroe talking head or that of a great white hope. An attempt to lynch a legacy or hijack history should be considered a crime within the community. Whether it be via the teachers in the colonial schools telling the countless numbers of colonized children that Columbus discovered America. Or that of Slave-Z stating/singing that Fred Hampton died. Let the record reflect and the community be politically correct, Chairman Fred Hampton and Def. Capt. Mark Clark were assassinated,Dec.4,1969.The day in which two (2) of our twin towers fell Brutal terms for brutal realities. WE RIDE! http://www.chairmanfredjr.blogspot.com/

    i don't think its really that serious..had this nigga got paid for jay-z saying his dads name it wouldn't be a issue...promise u that

    • Trooth

      This is the most absurd thing I've read in this comment section yet. He doesn't care about royalty money that he may have gotten from a song by this rapper mentioning his assassinated father's name. He was killed by police in a targeted attack on a threat to the status quo so it is obvious that this man was brave enough to stand up against the oppressive conditions that him and his people were living. A man like this does not believe that money is the bottom line. It's that simple. Fred Hampton, God rest his soul, would not care about royalties and his son Chairman Fred Hampton Jr. does not care. Heads up, eyes open, fist clenched. Things go deeper than money my friend and you should open up a book and read, read, read, read.

    When did Fred hampton and jigga become parrallels, it one of the most superficial statements I've ever heard, needs to cut out the cheeze.

  • Real Talk

    HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA after reading these comments I just realized something, these websites put these articles for people like us to react all crazy and negative with each other, They gave u a head line like "Fred Hampton, Jr. Responds To Jay-Z's Verse On "Murder To The Excellence" and u motherfuckers took the bait and are having arguments back and forth when none of u pertain to this situation, I don't give a fuck if u read a book on him, unless u were they that day next to him , u don't know shit

  • Real Talk

    I don't think Jay intended for that line to downplay his assassination I think he just needed a word to rhyme with "Multiply" so he used the word "died" instead of assassinated so that it fit the rhyme better

    Agree he was Assassinated... he did'nt die as this "blood sucker" may have the rest of the savages believe and thinking he representing when it's clearly a false statement to anyone with half a brain.

    Know a lot about the Panthers....read a few books, caught some documentaries, talked to my Gma about the movement many times(she was involved in it). Really is student of black nationalism...my favorite Panther read is Newton's "Revolutionary Suicide"...so before anyone says I'm young or don't know what Fred represented I just wanted to throw that out there I don't get why this was any concern of Jr. Its really not that big of a deal. Jay's line was made to put Fred in a positive light, there was no disrespect. I'm not sure why he felt like it was something to him, but he's a grown man (and that's his family) I don't get disrespecting another man though, especially one who may prompt interest in the history of your father. (I know my little brothers wanted to know what he meant so they went to check it out) In my opinion there was no story here and the line wasn't disrepectful or distastefu, but the my opinion. I would love to see the rest of what he said though. This clearly wasn't all

  • MalcolmLittle

    Another thing Fred Hampton was never a "real nigga", he was a real MAN.

  • MalcolmLittle

    I didn't read thru all the comments but I just wanna speak on a couple I did see and agree with. For starters, the whole died/assassinated controversy. Yeah it's true if you get assassinated it means you died, who the hell WOULDN'T agree with that. But on the flip side of that coin, if you die it RARELY means you were assassinated. BUT... Fred Jr.'s MAIN focus shoulda been on this nigga Jay even havin the audacity to compare himself to a man who was the exact opposite of everything Jay stands for. Chairman Fred was about helpin his fellow man and liftin the people up, not usin people to get him where he was tryin to go and then throwin em under the bus soon as he don't need em anymore. Fred Sr. stayed grounded to his roots at all times, hell why do y'all think he was ASSASSINATED to begin with?? I know the Chairman gotta be rollin in his grave right about now at this shit, as well as some of the comments bein left by these simple simon ass niggas...smmfh... On another note though, it's very possible this whole thing could all be just another example of media posturing...for all we know maybe Fred Jr. DID speak on Jay even comparin himself to his pops in the first place, and HHDX left that part out to make him seem petty and to dilute his argument...we all know how often that happens in the media and especially these Hip Hop sites. Just a scenario I'm tossin out there...

      great comment for many to read. i would suggest clicking the ruby hornet link. what you stated would have been common knowledge if jay's saying his name would have really led people to read about fred sr, so the whole idea of "he should be happy he mentioned him" his failed logic, nobody checked for him just because jayz said his name. also what i noticed is fred jr flipped the whole thing to get it out there (lets not forget jays bday/freds death anniversary passed just days ago) so kudos to him. second point where "he should be happy he mentioned him" is failed logic because no rap website or jayz commenting fan said anything about it.

    LMAO! Fred Hampton Jr. is overshadowed by his pops and this is how he intends to stand out. GTFOH. he died didn't he? die1 /da/ Show Spelled[dahy] Show IPA verb (used without object), died, dying. 1. to cease to live; undergo the complete and permanent cessation of all vital functions; become dead. 2. (of something inanimate) to cease to exist: The laughter died on his lips. 3. to lose force, strength, or active qualities: Superstitions die slowly. 4. to cease to function; stop: The motor died. 5. to be no longer subject; become indifferent: to die to worldly matters. Fred Hampton Jr. needs to get educated...These are our leaders??? Listen everyone, let's all go to school and make something out of ourselves. It's because of ignorant shit that black folk fight and kill each other...

      assassinate (-ss-nt) tr.v. assassinated, assassinating, assassinates 1. To murder (a prominent person) by surprise attack, as for political reasons. 2. To destroy or injure treacherously: assassinate a rival's character. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ BIG DIFFERENCE RICHARD NIXON DIED, JFK WAS ASSASSINATED. CAN ANYONE HERE SAY NIXON WAS ASSASSINATED ACCORDING TO YOUR "IT'S THE SAME THING" LOGIC? THIS IS WHERE YOU THROW THE SEMANTICS OUT THE WINDOW. AND JAY COULD HAVE EASILY SAID "WHEN FRED HAMPTON WAS ASSASSINATED I WAS BORN RIGHT AFTER/MY CIVIL RIGHT AS A PANTHER WAS TO EXTEND HIS CHAPTER" AND THERE MOST LIKELY WOULD BE NO DRAMA. AND MOST LIKELY PEOPLE STILL WOULDN'T KNOW WHO HE WAS OR CARED.

    Fred Jr. is not strategic. He should be happy that Jay-Z mentioned his dad (Fred Hampton, one of the greatest Black organizers of the 20th century) so that people would look him up. Secondly, after praising him - then ask Jay-Z to donate some $ to any projects that Fred was actually doing.

    Why is it that just because you are black you have to agree with everything any other black person says or you are just "holding back" the race? Under those circumstances a white person should never talk poorly about hitler because they are holding back their race. Until we can constructively criticize each other the "human" race shall never advance. And IMO FH Jr was in the room and the womb when his father was killed so he has the first right to say anything pertaining to his dad, but I also think Jay was just showing respect.

    And this is why there will never be an advancement. I can appreciate why F.H. Jr. would have an issue, perhaps it boarders being a little too sensitive but why reduce it to name calling...that's what children do, they name call. He could've made the same point in a much more intelligent way and put it out there for Jay to explain why he chose those words and then it would be on Jay to continue the conversation like an adult.

  • LordLamickTheEmperor

    I don't see why assassinated vs died would cause an argument like this, I think the real issue is Jay Z putting himself in the same light as Fred Hampton. One can see how his son or those sympathetic to Hampton, might take offence. But this just opens the door for more Jay Z hate, most of which is unnecessary. No riding, but I think it's a good thing we have moguls like Jay Z(not Diddy), one day hopefully these wealthy black ambassadors will eventually influence black culture to evolve and African American's to prosper. And by culture evolving I certainly don't mean for Black people to start being coconuts, just smart about the system and take advantage of it.

    • Swordz

      Nothing misleading at all. Jay said he dies on the same day he was born. No untruths there. If someone gets shot. They are Murdered, But they still die. Fucking dumb ass "Fake Panther" nigga. Do the knowledge this clown. He disgraces is father's name. JR nigga.

    Because a lot of black people are bitch niggas so damn sensitive I repeat Assassinated don't RHYME with Multiply and Died do. Simple as that. I bet most of you dont even know the name of you kids Teachers, but you seem to know all about Jay-Z and Fred Hampton.

    • Dolla36

      Nice. Well put. Why arent we talking about the other things Jay -z says on the track. That make a lot of sense: If you put crabs in a barrel to insure your survival You gon end up pulling down niggas that look just like you What up blood? What up cuz? Its all black, I love us Jay Tells the turth crabs in a berrel we all pulling each other down with this BS.

  • Fred Fuckin Hampton

    Yo Fuck this Jr Kid. You should be glad Jay even mentioned your fuckin Dads name. I bet more people googled your faggot dads name in the last 3 months than in the last 30 years. Pussy ass bitch Jr go suck your moms titty, and let Jay balance his dick on your forehead.

  • Anonymous

    If he was assassinated, then he died. Fred Jr. just wanted to start an argument. And jay-z is honoring the death by putting it in his song, not dissing it, so fred jr needs to relax

  • koilp

    wow!!! Dan Roy Henry fathers thanks Jay-z for the same song and this sucka ridicules it, gtfoh, and all yall hating ass clowns need to stop it..crabs in a fucking barrel...

  • mase

    Damn, never even knew there was a jr..where do you find these niggaz, let him have his 15 mins then tell him to get the fuck outta here..you need to thank a nigga like hov for even mentioning his name..

  • Nico 3

    In the context of a song, Jay can say whatever he wants. If Jr. don't like it, tough shit. It wasn't like he was dissing the guy's father. It's a throwaway lyric that means nothing.

    Ya;ll lil knuckleheads are sooo ignorant. Dude bellow me doesn't know the difference between being killed and dying. A Sucka like Jay-Z shouldn't even mention a revolutionary like Fred Hampton!

  • Professor Griff

    Fred Hampton Jr. forgot more about history than Coontastic Carter could ever even pretend to know. Retards on this site need to read a book sometime, it won't kill you-- and if it does, ya'll won't be mourned-- or ASSASSINATED, like Fred Hampton was.

  • Anonymous

    Shawn Carter is as rich as he ig'nant-- which is to say fucking lots. Jig doesn't know SHIT about history, black, American or otherwise. Ya'll can say he don't "need" to but it doesn't mean he's not a goddamn knucklehead. All his "gangster" bullshit it nonsense too-- he doesn't know jack shit, despite LOTS happening in his neighborhood over for 100 years before he was born (on the same day Fred Hampton was murdered.)

    • BBlanco

      Riiight like if Jigga didnt mention Fred Hampton you'd know who he was, STFU Fred Hampton would be mad at half you coons for the way you act and talk, so please stop with the Anti- Jay talk it was a rhyme not a book or a lesson

  • Carlos Morales

    when ur assasinated u died right? smh

  • Silly Boys...

    Sadly, most posters here did not grow up with fathers and probably can not identify with a man getting upset that an artist dropped his murdered fathers name in a line. Especially when this artist has a history of becoming 'political' when it's convenient yet spending the other 95% of his rhymes glorifying materialism, commercialism, and appealing to pop white culture. The mainstream media has granted him a pass into pop culture. They sanitized his image and gloss over the mockeries he makes of poor people and of Black women with his music. Unfortunately Black publications have followed suit, thus, so many posters here can't see past a song and see the disrespect. Do a song with Dead Prez then try to capitalize off of OWS protests with a shirt mocking their push for economic justice. Attach your name to some water project in Africa, then take photos of yourself in the whitehouse with the leader of the country whose companies contribute to the exploitation in the first place. Shawn Carter is no friend of you and masquerades as an ambassador for the hood when he is the exact opposite. Stop cosigning him people, he does not cosign you...

      even if u believe Jay is apart of the illuminati and h8 his music, as a hip-hop fan, u should easily be able to understand that Jay-Z in no way was dissing Fred Hampton

    • yawooh

      Jay-Z can say whatever he wants and if u dnt like it dnt listen to it..He's won grammy's,sold millions of records,made millions of dollars and is married to one of the baddest chicks alive(Beyonce). He's living a dream life that many ppl like you envy because he keeps getting money and helping the hip-hop culture.He came from your typical"hood" and didnt grow up w/a father and now lives the life he wants. Idk about you but whether I like some of Jay-Z's music (or decisions that lead to controversy), I respect his hustle and grind to get to the top.

    • Anonymous

      if you can remember correctly, jay-z first started rapping about the "hood life" and then when he made it out, he started to rap about his new life on top. So he is materialistic, what american is not? and i bet you would want to meet the president as well.

    • Com

      Thanks for sharing your opinion on a gossip site. If only you clowns above me understood that. Jay-Z is business man, like any other. If you haven't realized this then you're in serious need of help. But if you've forgotten where he came from, then you aren't much better. I also find it ironic you would lambast people on this site for being ignorant by starting off with an assumption as ignorant as that.

    • smh

      sums it up...if only these clowns would understand any of what you just said. critical thinking is dead. I cant believe ppl's minds are small enough to hone in on the argument of dead vs killed as if that is what Fred Hampton jr.'s beef is. the semantics are not the point...the semantics would change if it wasn't jay-Z that said those lines. his beef is with jay-z exploiting his father's death in his simplistic treatment of very real issues in that basic ass song.

    Big Fred was so influencial and I will always honor him but Lil' Fred is trippin'. #1 Jay was paying homage to his dad. #2 if he didn't die from being shot multiple times then why isn't he on someone's documentary today talking about the Panther Party? Yes! He was assassinated but he died of gunshots so therefore he just wants to hate. I mean when someone asks what happened to someone in your family you are going to say they died...smh at these guy

  • Bigfoot89

    Jay is such a clown ass nigga...all that money but the camel face and distasteful lyrics discredit all that...

  • GGENERAL

    ROTFLMAO...I really don't understand why people hate Jay-z so much. When did being rich become a negative. I mean, if u don't like his music, that's fine. I'm sure he's not going to loose any sleep, nor anyone else for that matter. A lot of people seem to act like they know him personally. It's funny that when black people become successful, they sold out to the white man or they are slaves to what the white man wants. White man becomes successful and he did it with hard work or something to be respected. SMH, we wonder why the cycle of crabs in a bucket continues. I don't know jay personally, so I can't speak to his character. So y would I believe someone I don't know telling me about the character of someone else I don't know...

    First of all, there IS a difference between someone DYING and someone being MURDERED. If your mom was MURDERED I'm sure there would be issues with someone suggesting anything otherwise. F a rhyme. Just don't mention it if it ain't gonna be accurate. More importantly, if you take your legacy seriously, why does it matter what some RAPPER thinks? What some ENTERTAINER with no political motivations, thinks? The fact that he is even giving this SONG CREATOR any credence says to me you're looking too hard bro.

    It really bugs me how cats like these are always looking for the slightest opportunity to get in the limelight and only end up do ingso in the most questionable manner. For one, the line was not meant as a disrespect. Second, it does not matter if you were assassinated, you got mauled by lions or you just got too near the sun and imploded, when you stop breathing, you die. so there is nothing wrong with the line bro. You're on panels getting paid honorariums and profiting off the Black Panther movement, but you having problems with someone actually giving props to your pops. Go assassinate yourself butt wipe.

  • Steve

    The grammar in these comments in indicative of why a smart young black man has to be assassinated. If he starts spreading his message, its trouble for the government. Keep slurping Jay guys.

  • David Poochie Roberts

    Well you cant rhyme multiply with assassinated. If you listen to the whole song he was talking about us as people uniting. "What up blood what up cuz, I love us." We need grow up. Redman was my favorite artist as a teen till this day I have never done drugs and I might drink one beer a year. My pops sold crack, I never sold drugs. 2Pac is my boy no Tats, you have to be responsible for your own actions. To me its only entertainment, I think a lot of you masturbate to this.

    I hate when son's of powerful men, try and act like they have the same insight. Most sons take after their mothers anyway, which is the reason Fred Hampton Jr didn't carry on the legacy of the Panthers. Kanye's dad is a Panther as well, so he should've got at Kanye's dad for a sit down. J Prince son and Pimp C's sons think that they bosses because of their fathers, but in reality they not built like those powerful men. Even Lil Romeo ain't on Master P's level. If P died today, Romeo would get swallowed by the wolves.

    • jason

      So you speak for Fred Hampton, The President and Mr. Mandela has both sat with Jay-Z. Al Sharpton who was very instrumental in the civil rights movement sat with Jay. Mr Hampton would be in his 60s at this point you dont know what lifestyle change he would have went thru since he was killed at 21. Why people have a hard on for Jay baffles me.

  • um what?

    My son didnt "die" he was planking.

  • um what?

    saying "he didnt die, he was assassinated" is like saying "this isn't meat, its chicken". Just completely idiotic. Assassination is not an alternative category to death, its a cause of death. but the result is always death. everybody gets a death certificate. there is no assassination certificate or a cancer certificate and a planking certificate. Its all DEATH. If you dont like jay just say you don't like him, dont make a fool of yourself by trying to justify it with logic that dont even make sense.

    This ignorant ass fuck. SMH. Are you fucking kidding me? As far I'm concerned, Hov was commending your dad.

And no disrespect to the dead, but hell, I never even heard anything about your father until Hov even said something about him. And you talkin' 'bout "Fred Hampton didn't die; he was assassinated", I'm sorry, but correct me if I'm wrong, but when you're assassinated, it means you're dead. In other words, it means you died. This is the exact reason why when we think about Dec. 4th we don't think about your father's death, but we think about Hov's birthdate. SMH at this bitch-ass nigga's ignorance...

  • Mr Flamboyant

    LOL at Fred Hampton Jr's ether served... I think he has every right to speak, you sheep. It's his pops and it's a touchy subject. Now I'm not going to say Jay-Z dissed his pops nor intended to do so... but the fact remains that Fred Hampton Jr's dad is FRED HAMPTON and it was a very controversial and brutal murder to silence one influential voice of the revolution against the powers that be and a voice of power to his people. Niggas will suck Jay-Z's dick if he stabbed their moms... Stupid humans. This is yet another example of the following: Freedom of speech. Just watch what you say. You same cowards probably have no issue with Jay-Z saying "Jesus can't save you" in that Empire State of Mind as well. Heck you probably don't have any problem with Ye saying "I made Jesus walks. I never can go to hell" either. When you say stuff to be "cool" or deem yourself a certain way, it's repercussions for that. And damn... that YADIG dude is a fag.

If this guy was smart he would look at the next line dat says"real niggas just multiply" which (in todays slang/termanlogy) means he's giving props to Fred Hampton for being real and of influence to Jay-Z

    I'm confused, Fred Hampton JR does not seem to be too smart. Death was the result and assassination the method/cause of.... What Jay said was in no way disrespectful... Fred Hampton did something for his people that Jay-Z obviously admires and relates to. Except Fred Hampton's son is not happy about this.... Does he know how many Jay-z fans don't know who Fred Hampton is? (kids all around the world) who will then google the name because Jay mentioned it? Hence learning about the cause his father died for?..... sorry, got assassinated for?

    whats the diffresnce between death and assasinated last I checked u still ended up in grave?

  • BrownJack

    He needs to stop. He was obviously paying homage, and it fit the song. Besides, "assassinated" doesn't rhyme with "multiply."

  • Joseph Antonio Rivera

    this is stupid, he still died. hes dead. idiot.

  • Peace.

    Fred Hampton was assassinated by the FBI's COINTELPRO, didn't see the line as a diss though. I see where Jay was going with it.
