The ’84 Baby’s Thoughts On The ’69 Baby’s Single

Fresh Outta Early Retirement

Don’t say I never did anything for you. Here is the “Show Me What You Got” lyrics transcribed for the Jay-Hova worshippers. Personally I think Just Blaze bodied him on his own shit. And if this is the level of lyricism we’re expecting to bring New York back, then I guess I’ll be patiently waiting for The Carter 3. You put Weezy, T.I.P or even Ludacris on this same beat and they’d kill it 300x better than the old man. Oh well, there’s always freestyles on mixtapes. But one line that’s actually making me ponder:

“Y’all Got Less Than 2 Months To Get Yall Thing Together…Good Luck”

Ok. Lets make a list of people he could be talking to here:

Santa Claus

God’s Son




Young William Wallace
Well if you ask me (New York Magazine did), Jay is serving Nas a nice cold dish over revenge with some ether in the saltshaker.
Without further ado, the lyrics:

What you want me to do I’m sorry. I’m back”


“Hands up and wave…and wave….and wave…and wave”
Waving is gay no matter how you do it. If I see any of you with your hands up waving in the club, I’m putting you on blast.

1st Verse
“Give the drummer some

I already gave the summer some

It’s the winter’s turn

Hovie Hov is the coldest

I’m just getting better with time

I’m like Opus…One

Young, no two alike like a snowflake
You know its bad when that’s the best line in the song. Although this website would beg to differ.

Ok, Show me what you got babe

Words is slurring engine purring

Mami frontin but I’m so determined

Shots of patron now she’s in a zone

I ain’t talking about the 2-3

Mami in the zone like the homie 2-3

Jordan or James

Makes no difference boo I’m ballin the same

I am the Mike Jordan of recording
Four Jordan references in 4 bars. The MJ love is getting out of control. Time to find a new hero buddy.

You might want to fallback from recording
Rhyming recording with recording and they both mean the exact same thing? He might be hanging out with the other King of NY a little too much

But you right it’s not important

So it forced him to go for the hype

For being brave and they applaud him

Well misery I will assure them
What the hell is he jabbering about?
Aww baby just ignore them

Truth or dare mami listen and learn

I got a drop I just took off the top

It’s your turn
2nd Verse

Gold bottles of that ace of spade

Why even fool with these other guys? They all stingy

All these dudes know how to say is ‘gimmie’

Gimmie some ass, Gimmie some brain

Gimmie your number, gimmie your name

But if I get one night baby girl I swear

I’ll make you tell those dudes gimmie got you here
This is probably the stuff he was saying to Carmen. In fact, I think this whole song is about Carmen.
I’ll take you shopping, take long trips
When you get old, game goes out the window. It’s time for tricking when you’re past 35. Bollllllin’ talked about it a little in his last blog.

I’ll take the cork off, you can take sips

I’ll take you there, take my time

Take you clothes off, I’ll take off mine

Pause, Ayo, No Fonzworth Bentley

Ma, show me what you got

Hovie in the spot tried to told you I was hot

Tell these other dudes it’s a wrap

Get the fuck out the throne you clone

The King’s Back!
