[Ronald Reagan:]
“And they say if we’ll only avoid any direct confrontation with the enemy, he’ll forget his evil ways and learn to love us. All who oppose them are indicted as warmongers. They say we offer simple answers to complex problems. Well, perhaps there is a simple answer—not an easy answer—but simple”

[Verse 1]
I got that black on black skin tone
Actual-fact syndrome
That’s why I dropped the cruel on every verse you heard me sh*t on
Okay, it’s a Slumdog Opera
The tale of a king whose name wasn’t on the roster
My road to glory was Road To Perdition
And Act II: The Turn is just the memoirs with no omissions
We came a mighty long way from standing near the stove in the cold
The greatest story ever told
The realest n*ggas see the pain in my story boards
The true believers say [Walaki] I support the boy
My life feel like a highlight reel, this is lightning striking
Feel how the Zeitgeist feel
Get a slight chill

In his song, “Young Forever,” Jay Z envisions a life where “you never get old and the Champagne’s always cold.” He may not be able to do much about aging, but he may be able to help with the chilled bubbly.

Just days after the British beverage giant Diageo swapped whiskey for tequila, taking control of the Don Julio tequila brand from Jose Cuervo, a new company led by Jay Z has acquired Armand de Brignac Champagne from Sovereign Brands.

Joey takes lyrical stab at Jay

 Joe Buddens recently delivered on the long-awaited, highly anticipated Mood Muzic 3, and slipped in a little gift hidden in the (w)rapping.  On track 3, titled, “Talk 2 ‘Em” Joe cuts straight to the point and opens a barrage on Sean Carter: “Campaign’s going full throttle like a race/if you’re feelin’ Funktafied, get a bottle to the face/for you the times are rough too/cuz ain’t nobody buying your albums but you/from the sounds of everything/ i hear you lost it/still rap alright but your ear’s exhausted/fuck your bunch of money/put your ego to the side/and maybe it’s time to study your understudy/i mean, are we hustling or are we grown up/every time i hear you you’re changing your tone up” 

 Ugly…but that’s not all folks…“when the new generation think about Jordan/all they remember is when Iverson crossed him/take off the blazer, loosen up the tie/n*gga fell in love and super man died!”  Ooch!  Joey must’ve been holding on to some emotional luggage for a minute now,whew, he continues…”the new generation won’t forget you we promise/we’ll always pay homage/but lets get one thing understood son/every encore ain’t a good one”  

Review:

Sprinkled throughout the CD are other lightweight subliminal shots taken at Jay.  It’ll be interesting to see if Hov bites this time, especially  with the highly contested outcome of their last “silent” war leaned in the favor of Jump-Off Joey.  Click HERE to get to full mixtape, which is definitely worth a listen.   PMoor
