    amazing how he was fucking up his verse and performing for a small crowd and turned into what he is today

  • Bob

    This is why i don’t get all the illuminati talk, he started from nothing like everybody, used his drug money and kareem biggs drug money to launch rocafella and record his album. His rise took 15 years.

      You apparently haven’t payed enough attention to his lyrics, he’s on Em’s level and surpassed Nas and Biggie like 2 cds ago. Read the meaning of ANY song that was listed in decoded

    Chuks are you really Jaz-O ? you sond angry like he stole your gilr or blew up and you didn’t. I admit all of Jay’s shit ain’t claassic but he put in enough solid work over the last 15 to get the respect he deserves. Like he said niggas wake up on my dick eat some breakfast first Chuk lol
