    Jay is an effing hoe!! He gon toss Free aside like that wasn’t his city. That wasn’t tha Brook Hov and you a hoe for that. Anyone tryna’ say Free was dressed in hip-hop clothes and wasn’t included in the pic cause he wasn’t in suit should slap theyselves… last I checked hip-hop didn’t rock suits and made it a point not to. Hov made his name on hip-hop now he wants to turn his back on the image it portrays for the sake of his bank account. F*ck Jay-Z for that… Big Up Freeway for holding down for hip-hop and Philly. Not even from that coast but real recognize real… Fuck Jay-Z (Nas, Stillmatic sample voice)
