The Greatest Interns in Hip-Hop History -Paying Dues Pays Off

Some may wonder why Jay looked like such a natural when he played hype man for Drake last November in Toronto. But those who know their history know that Hov came into the game some 20 years earlier as Jaz-O’s apprentice. Yes, before the G4’s, Maybachs, and worldwide tours, Jigga was just the skinny kid from Marcy playing sidekick in Jaz’s “Hawaiian Sophie” video. Last year’s performance beside Drizzy showed that either being a hype man is like riding a bike, or Jay got some damn good pointers from Bleek to help shake off the rust. Hey, I can’t call it.
