The 10 Best Homages On ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’


3. Mommie Dearest

In the line “Sort of like daddy dearest,” both Biggie and Jay pay homage to the memoir and film Mommie Dearest. The 1981 biopic starring Faye Dunaway is based on Hollywood screen queen Joan Crawford and her abusive relationship with her daughter. Hov samples vocals from the film in the intro to “Jay-Z Blue” as well as the lines “Don’t fuck with me fellas. This ain’t my first time at the rodeo” and “No… wire… hangers… EVER!” The latter is the film’s most famous line and happens when Crawford finds a cheap wire hanger in her daughter’s clothes. Outraged, she beats her daughter with the wire hanger while going H.A.M.
