    Hov>>>>>>>>>>>

  • yo

    what's cool about Hov in this part of his career is that he gets to talk flyer shit than everybody because he has actually done and is doing flyer shit than everyone. so it almost doesn't matter if he's rapping well (he is).

  • Lil Wayne

    Yo mayne I may be high off that lean right now and hurt from breaking my leg doing an Ollie on the grass but this is why jay is the REAL carter. Ya heard me, young money!!!

    Damn. Hov blacked out!

  • friggin_val

    dope.maybe a sign of a new album.

  • Expresivo

    That is probably one of the craziest and most political freestyles ever done by Hov,,,Da Dynasry Continues!!!

  • http://fuckyouthisisnothiphop fuck hov

    Shit is whack. Hov is a moron, he helped destroy hip hop.

  • mr ruga

    Hov the realest come on now tht shit was crack!!!!

  • speezola

    Hov is right that it's ridiculous people like Stacey Dash are accusing Jay of "supporting a Communist opressive regime" when Americans buy products from Communist, oppressive China 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Wal-Mart must be the biggest supporter of Communism of all time. China's the second largest economy in the world, soon to be the largest, so I guess Communism must work on some level, huh, Fox News? LMAO.

    Lyrics is dope, flow is Hungry, Beat is meh...kinda boring. Swizz's damn adlib's are annoying as usual.

    Imagine that Verse over a just Blaze banger.

    If nothing else u gotta love the fact he always relevant with what's goin on in America.... Speaks on topics we were just addressing yesterday #Facts ( stepping down from nets ) come fuck wit my insight tho (@YungMarvinGaye /Or YungMarvinGaye In Any Seatch Engine )

  • TruthHurtsNigga

    He sounds out of his depth with the political lines....just stop Jay, it's not you.

    Just because Obama is using you to seem 'cool' and appeal to a younger demographic, doesn't mean it is a reflection on your intelligence or political ideas. It's like the Nets situation all over again, you tricked people into believing you own the Nets, when in reality you don't even have enough power to change the color of the locker room walls.

    And stop with the gun lines. You ain't shooting nobody Grandpa, pampered ass nigga.

  • highatollah

    3/10, you overstaying your welcome jay. i love you and all but this weak shit won't fly with me. time to hang it up.

  • wqe

    TruthHurtsNigga

    marks like you are never satisfied with anything. when rappers rap about hoes and money you say they arent conscious enough. then when they actually make an effort to tackle less trivial issues you immediately cut them off as trying too hard. just fuck off nigga. seriously

  • Psycho

    I don't get whats so great about this. or is it just the fact its jay z and he doesnt put out music very often because this is nothing great

  • kGb

    although i gotta agree with @TruthHurtsNigga... jay really ain't shooting anybody lmao but i enjoyed it... i get why others didn't though..

  • Jets72

    This beat is the definition of mediocrity. Why does Hov continue to work Timbaland and Swizz Beatz when both have fallen off so hard? Get back to working with Just Blaze and Ski!

  • Cynthia

    Still can't get down with HOV! Been trying since 04-05. He's alright, just can't see myself buying an album or going to a show.

  • Wase

    yo Swizz why you funk master flexin on the track smh

  • UK Man

    The lyrics are nice as you’d expect, but why does he keep using Swizz Beatz and Timbaland? Recently, they've been tossing out turkeys like Nino Brown. That beat’s boring as hell. NEXT.

  • TruthHurtsNigga

    @wqe

    That's the thing, he has everyone talking about his political references on this track....when really, what is he saying? Not much at all.

    Money and hoes record every now and then is cool if the balance is right with your other songs. Full on political rap is boring as fuck after a while too.

    Hov can complain about politicians all he wants, fact is, he has no problem accepting those fat PR checks from the Whitehouse to pose with Obama & Beyonce.

    Don't let him trick you into thinking he gives even the slightest fuck about the real social issues. As super-rich business man, as long he is getting those big tax breaks, he's good.

    Also, you can spit the realest & most relevant bars on political/social issues today, but the second you drop a line about 'shooting' and 'catching a body' you undermine everything you just said and your credibility goes out the window. Stop lying nigga.

    And for the record, I don't mind the track, and Jay is one of the GOATs, doesn't mean he can't be criticised.

  • GabeGutz

    Don't trip Ye, Jay's watching the Throne.

  • Rudy

    I like this hov compared to the hov we've been seeing recently. He is angry/hungry to say something. Blueprint Hov all over this song.

  • runt

    you dumb fucks think he's literally talking about shooting someone? it's just a metaphor for him coming out hard on this track, and whenever people threaten or criticise him... idiots

  • runt

    and that whole shooting, catch a body line is taken from Nas' NY State of Mind if you didn't know

  • j

    he doesn't mean shooting as in firing a gun you fucktards
    jay has a way with words, he knows what he's saying, a lot of the time it's gonna be lost on people though.

  • Terry

    people don't wanna hear facts. They rather hear lies. Jay Z is the greatest!!

  • comment

    the song is cool... the beat is also nice... but i dont get the hype at all. Killer Mike, Immortal Technique talk about politics all the time in their music.

  • marty mcfly

    @TruthHurtsNigga, do you watch the news? FOX, MSNBC? They bring up Hov's name every week and FOX in particular always have something negative to say about him. Im glad he finally decided to address some of the shit. Shots fired at Marco Rubio and a couple other political commentators if you've been following whats been going on. He never tried to step outside of the hip hop world into politics but they consistently bring up his name so... Open Letter

  • b ali

    The hip hop fan in me thinks this is extremely subpar. However, this song is clearly not for hip hop fans. It is aimed at the old guys who make a living off of vilifying anything that doesn't represent upper middle class 1950s America. Can't wait for bill oreilly and rush limbaugh to deliver one of their classic ignorant rants on this.

    Its finna be awwwn!!!

  • marty mcfly

    @7 HATE HATE HATE... I mean ya'll mad when talks about money, mad when he talks about drugs, mad when he talks about success, mad when he talks about his life in general, mad when he addresses matters that involve him. Now you mad cause he's talking political. Just stop, If you dont understand whats going on by now you never will. Jay addressed this situation at just the right time and put things in an intelligent context and gave perspective to a situation that people should be able to put together themselves. I mean Truthhurts is questioning Jayz credibility as a person? I mean if you know Jayz so well then why you aint mention anything positive that he's done? You mad cause Jayz had a line about "shooting" and "catching a body"? I mean that seriously makes you mad? Smh, so because he said those things (whether he meant them literally or metaphorically") you think that undermines everything else he said? Just stop. For people that are just now hearing Jayz talk about certain things, go back and listen to his other albums. You'll find that he's been rapping like this for quiet some time now.

  • marty mcfly

    And after all that hate Truthhurts says "And for the record, I don’t mind the track, and Jay is one of the GOATs" Smh.

  • Bigg El Dogg

    The beat was Steve Kerr, the flow and content was Micheal Jordan...do the knowledge to that.

  • marty mcfly

    ^^^ I will agree that beat is not the business. I dont know what they were thinking with that but oh well. No need to over think the production at this point.

  • Chris

    So is this guy Jay-Z a rapper or something?

  • JAyP

    Let them know Jay let them know! I am digging this!

  • MusicHead

    Honestly Marty McFly just dickrides Jay-Z regardless no matter what & also takes up for him but if it's Kendrick ..he can't find no good with dude..just never give credit to the dude with the torch right now. Marty a biased hoe.

  • Marty McFly

    I wanna be Beyonce so bad!

  • malcyvelli

    @Musichead the fuck does that have ANYTHING to do with this post? lol, real shit though, that's so far off topic that it just makes you look like the dickrider, chill

    and Marty Mcfuck said some real shit, yall are reaching hella hard with this Jay hate, he mentioned some political subject matter but he merely scratched the surface of anything and yall make it seem like he attempted to completely revolutionize political rap when that is not the case, he brought up some broad ass politically based lines along with Obamas name, nothing more, yall really arent satisfied with anything he does, whether if its jiggy money hoes raps or even if he shows the slightest hint of depth, I didnt even like the song much aside from the lyrics but yall are reaching so hard with this hate, let HOVA live folks, goodnight

  • ignoranceisbliss

    Joe Budden said it best "Hip Hop fans are fickle"..and might i add very naive.

    Let be honest, in a overall sense, taking into the consideration of the artist and producers on this track. It's very mediocre. The beat is nowhere near Timbaland's best, and since everybody is talking about how politically groundbreaking this track is, Jay has made many more songs that have made a stronger political stance. Common has made songs based off politics, and has performed in the white house (since people wanna bring up Jay and Obama). But nobody is riding on his dick. Joe Budden, Young Jeezy, Talib Kweli, Pharoah Monch, just to name a few others that have made a song making a political stance. I am a fan of Jay-Z, but I am a realistic, unbiased fan. And a 2 minute song barely scraping political issues isn't enough for me to get hyped over when many other artists have done this and have executed better

  • mympc

    This is a horrible "song" and ya'll str8 dickriders . Period. Now go clean ya room like yo momma asked.

  • peteROC

    apparently ebro and trey songz are featured on here as well

    Jay knows it's time to drop a SOLID album. No more fillers. Get your HipHop cred back up! This song is the first step in the right direction.

    "Idiot wind i'm the Bob Dylan of Rap music."

    Do you haters know how deep that line is? if that was your favorite rapper saying that you'd applaud.

  • morning_coffee

    jay can't do shit right for you guys. hov could fix those BET basement vids autoplaying on 2DBZ and you'd still be like, "NAW HOV, I LIKED THAT SHIT BLOWIN UP MY SPEAKERS"

  • marty mcfly

    @ignoraneisbliss, Jayz didnt really get political on this song but the problem is people find a reason to hate when he mentions it at all. I could make a long list of Jayz songs where Jay spoke on political subjects but some people dont respect that because they have their minds made up that Jay is only one kind of MC. I think alot of people in general dont have a since of history or politics themselves so when Jay says - "Politicians never did shit for me Except lie to me, distort history", they dont know what Jay means by that and they also just hate to believe that Jay is actually much more then a Money Cash Hoes type of artist.

  • marty mcfly

    And with the whole Cube issue. I was very surprised that people were upset that Jayz went to Cuba? Thats interesting especially for people of color to be upset or people that come from the struggle. Seriously people were upset about Jay going to Cuba? Do you have any idea the shit that goes on in Cuba? Its history? Its relationship to America? So when Jay says "I’m in Cuba, I love Cubans", do people not understand why it makes sense for Jayz (someone from the struggle himself), to go to Cuba and see what that culture is about? Many people have gone to Cuba for inspiration and for an eye opening cultural experience. So why when Jay goes all some people can do is throw out some negative perspective as if they have no knowledge of why hip hop can relate to that struggle? Just saying. Stop the hate

  • BlackFlies

    Shit is pretty fucking boring. No hating, just a super overrated song is all honesty.

And I like swizz on the ad-libs...thats hip hop.....still didn't have to throw President Obama in the verse (the song isn't a big deal, but why strain your relationship w/him...got the goverment doing press conferences about this song lol)
