    Stories reign supreme! Since the beginning of speech. The story of you is what gives a man success. And the story of Jay-Z is why he's the greatest. Many emcees have talent; Jay has the best story. He's etched in stone, living legend, "as real as it gets".. No one from the street, with street credibility has been able to discredit him in 15 years.. And the stories others tell of him are consistent.. Please let me testify.. people close to him can't wait to speak positive of him, and people who used to be close to him, hate themselves and miss him terribly.. It's hard for me to believe that he has made one of his greatest albums at this point in his career.. "clap for 'em, clap for 'em... I am one of one, can't you see just how long my run.. "

    I can not describe how much that song means to me, it is a trans race, trans gender, trans economic theme, you have a white Broadway play hook going to a black artist with poverty riddled lyrics. I know racism lives, but when i listen to this song, it dies, because there is not color to hard knock lives.

    Good interview! He did that song last night in Houston.Jay-Z, Jeezy, & Trey Songz killed that shit...Especially on their version of "I'm goin in"!

  • gasoline

    this is nice...they should do this for all his and other rappers classic tracks...this is the song that made jay-z a superstar...

    so ill. You need to cop the making of Reasonable Doubt tho. Best Jay beat was Dead Presidents. Watch me play that on piano while rappin my own verse by clicking my user name. I play Feelin It too, and Changes by Pac and Big Poppa by... Big Poppa. Or for a better rendition of Big Poppa look up Will Ferrell as Robert Goulet singing rap classics.

  • Boom Bye Yeah

    Fucking awesome. I could watch one of those for every Jay song and every 45 King production.

  • deesure
