    To be honest that interview sucked. Not because of Jay but the questions. I mean come on ask something interesting. For instance:

    Q. Why don’t you 50, Diddy, Russell and Oprah (since she wants to put a filter on hip-hop) create a distribution company? Isn’t that where the real money is at?

    Q. What do you think of what 50 did to the whole dipset movement? And in reality couldn’t we say that he really did make Jimmy the boss Juelz the Capo and Cam a soilder? (Divide and conqure at it’s best and how come you didn’t think of it genius. You have a track record of not beefing with street artist (Crack, The LOX, Jayo, ect.) elaborate for us. You are from Marcy PJ’s right?

    Q. If Dehaven hadn’t gone public do you think you two could have resolved your issues? And looking at it from his point of view how would you take your success? You guys were tight right and you should look out for you dude if you got the cake and he just came home from a bid and he broke. (No one would fall cause everyone would be each others crutches)

    Q. What really happend between you and Big Pun? And why is everyone including Fat Joe so quite about that incident?

    Q. Since we know this wouldn’t get out of control why not go at LL? It would be good for Hip-Hop. I mean after what he did to Canibus he deserves it (remember Karma, I listen to you nigga). Also you might just be surprised he not going to be a push over. (Cliff note: LL played himself when he started using Botox.)

    Q. What type of relationship do you and Foxy have now? And do you ever think you would do music with her again.

    Q. How did it come about that Wayne made that album on a song about BK? What do you think of his verse on that song and were you in the studio together with him?

    Q. Out of the whole state property (excluding Beans and Free) who do you see coming up to hold the regins for Philly?

    Q. Isn’t it a coincidence that your schedulded to do a concept album on a film inspired by Frank Lucas and Dame is doing a documentary on his advisary. It’s something very subliminal about it all. Dropping Same month, two hustlers, ect?

    Q. Last question cause I know your a busy man is that pussy of Beyonce’s as good as it looks and does she spit or swallow? I once heard that love sucks and true love swallows. Thanks for you time and when ever your done beating Rianna please give her my email address.

    Those are great questions. Yall shit was the same stuff I heard a month ago. I could pratically tell you what he’s going to say. Oh yeah Jay please stop saying that double and triple entrunde shit in every other interview. We know you a smart dude but saying it over and over makes you look (like a camel) very unintelligent. I’m playing with you Jay. I hope you bring it home or really retire cause we need someone to be the face of hip-hop no pun intended.

      LMAO!!! That was some funny sh*t. On the real, Who do think would win a ‘Lyrical’ battle between LL & Jay-Z…that would be a great one….LL is battle tested (Koo Moe Dee, Ice-T, Busy-B, Hammer, Canibus, Wyclef, etc..)…Jay-Z is real witty with words (Dig-A-Hole..’Whatch What you Say”….Things that make you go??????

        I think LL still has some tricks up his sleeve, but seriously I think Jay would kill him if the Jay-Z or Jigga showed up that wrote RD or Vol 1-3. Hov is some alter ego Rap God that can’t really relate to us humans. Does anyone think he would answer the questions I asked (minus the B joint).

    • mybigballs

      Damn SDub, those were some serious questions. I like the ones about Beyonce puss…she probably dont swallow either :)

    • Brooklyn

      would you have question for Dehaven as well ? cause you can reach him through his website and his email and cell # I like the questions you wrote cause that is what journalism is about asking what people want to know
