What were you doing in 2007? Let's revisit a throwback track from Jay Z.

Here's a rare track from Jay Z that was found on a DJ Green Lantern mixtape. The song was recorded in 2007 and even though no names were said in the track, it's presumably a Dipset and Lil Wayne diss. The song was made during the Dipset and Jay Z beef and right after Lil Wayne made comments about Jay's retirement. In 2006, Jim Jones and Dame Dash dropped, “Kingdom Done” during the hype of Jay Z releasing his "Kingdom Come" LP. Jay later replies with “Brooklyn High,” a "We Fly High" diss track. The two parties continue to go back and forth and in 2008, Jay finally releases "Kingdom Come" which included the track "Dig A Hole." Many looked at this track as a response to Cam'ron’s “You Gotta Love It” which he dissed Jay Z after he claimed Jay made false accusations about him and his lifestyle. As of today, there are reportedly no beefs with either parties involved.

    "in 2008, Jay finally releases "Kingdom Come" which included the track "Dig A Hole." This is either a typo in the year, or DX's new staff has no hip hop knowledge at all. Kingdom Come came out in 2008? C'mon.

    So much is wrong with the description. First, Kingdom Come did not come out in 2008 and this song song was not recorded in 2007. Kingdom Come was released in 2006. This verse is lifted from "Trouble", a track on Kingdom Come, and put to a new beat. This track may have been for the shelved Green Lantern and Jay-Z mixtape that never saw the light of day due to Green leaking, I believe, the "ASAP Freestyle". However songs have found their way to the internet over the years. "Dig A Hole" is a clear diss to DipSet, but if you want a Lil Wayne diss in this time period, you're going have to look elsewhere. The closest candidate I can think of is found in T.I.'s "Watch What You Say To Me" on T.I. vs. T.I.P. And how can Jim Jones drop "Kingdom Done" two years before Kingdom Come? Doesn't that sound like a retaliatory title? Come on, does any body proof read or do research? Or stop letting your interns post articles. And here I am looking for a journalism job and I'm editing your articles for free.
