People actually was waiting to here Jay-Z's take on the trayvon martin trial/incident?


LOL@N!gga people...

and, don't see why I check off "Other" on my racial make-up. :nea:

Joke is...NAS has produced more Uplifting music than Jay-z over his career, but nobody running down Nas. Pop culture raising and influencing N!gga people...no pure/true grass roots effort is being made.

BTW, Trayvon parents clean up well...In less than a year they went from ghetto hoodratz to the huxtables.

I always said one of the worse things to happen to black people was Big and Pac dying... When they were alive, they and their music was just taken for what it was, music depicting a subculture that no one should live, a negative influence, gangsta rap, just music etc... you knew what they were talking about was wrong

After they died, they became Martyrs, revolutionaries, they were called all kind of brilliant this and brilliant that, their music stood for love, warnings for the people to take heed and listen to and other bullshit....
Just a bunch of convoluted sense of morals...

Now people like Jay Z looked like some kind of leader smiling up there with Obama and on all the talkshows, regardless of how much he still throws the N word around and still talks about blowin a stack for a N with his TRAPPIN ass...
Just a bunch of convoluted sense of morals

Jigga is one of the greatest blk men we have today
dont act like he didnt say "change clothes" and put nuggas in suits dress clothes

dont act like he didnt have a CIVIL WAHR FOR BLK MINDS gainst dame dash and crew
and won
and has helped young blk men to think differently
going past pac and biggie

I dont think he should have said anything or went to that march though

if anyone influenced trayvan father to dress in a suit and be comfortable its him
jigga even taught nuggas to wear flip flops

Agreed. However just like I have proven by my presence on here; People don't what knowledge, they want backchat. That's why they follow Jay-Z....
Picture if you will that the throne's burning
Rome's burning and I'm sitting in the corner all alone burning
Why does it always end up like this?
Something that we don't determine
Same people that I fought for, that I fight for, that I ride for
That I live for, that I die for be the reason that these ####################s is alive for
And they want me dead but I'm so sorry but I just can't die for you
But I can make 'em put their hands in the sky for you
We waiting for the fireworks like July 4th
Get fly more, get high more, cry boy, why for?
When the grief is over, beef is over
I'll be fly when Easter's over
I tried to teach ####################s how to be kings
And all they ever wanted to be was soldiers
So the love is gone 'til blood is drawn
So we no longer wear the same uniform
################ you squares, the circle got smaller
The castle got bigger, the walls got taller
And truth be told after all that said
####################s still got love for you

anybody who thinks JayZ is the epitome of black leadership needs their head examined.. but people do have a way of making people seem more than they were after death.. take for example.. whitney houston...

he always represented himself as a businessman
maybe the business is bad biz yet that none the less
he was NEVER a bad guy or sold himself as such
REAL BOSS
when I say promote what was going on
I mean WHAT WAS GOING ON IN JAIL
REPRESENTING FOR JAIL NUGGAS
and not hustlaz
yet vielent nuggas

jayz didnt go there

and he won
cam and dash aint shit

so thats the point
his impact has been the greatest not as a rapper yet all round
for blk youth

now there are hundreds of thousands of good decent blk men setting good examples

jayz has had the biggest impact in a positive way
nas nor dmx couldnt come close to doing what he does
simply cause they rep themselves as "hood"

"lucky luciano what they call me paizano not bad for a mooliano"
lol
aw mayne

@OP

this is one of those damned if you do and damned if you don't situations. When black artist do nothing we are up in arms look at all what is going on in the black community where are the leaders, where are the rich black people? the second they step FWD we tear them down just as quickly.

Jay-z became part of the black leadership because he choose to do so.... kinda like how you became the leader on IMIX of tearing black people down...

Loyalty to Loyalty
Jay Z unleashed his uncensored thoughts in a series of media interviews, including his latest sit-down with The Truth’s Elliott Wilson. During the interview, held at Yankees Stadium, Jay discussed various topics, including being criticized by social activist Harry Belafonte, who says that he and Beyonce have turned their back on social responsibility and giving back. He also dished his feelings on the George Zimmerman verdict, and pegged Drake as his biggest competitor.
Catch the highlights below:

Jay Z on if he was offended by Harry Belafonte
I’m offended by that because first of all, this is going to sound arrogant, but my presence is charity. Just who I am, [is charity], just like Obama is. Obama provides hope. Whether he does anything, that hope that he provides for a nation and outside of America is enough. Just being who he is. You’re the first black president. If he speaks on any issue or anything, he should be left alone. [...] Of course we want to challenge [Obama] to do better, but I felt like Belafonte just went about it wrong. The way he did it, within the media, and then he bigged up Bruce Springsteen. It was like, ‘Whoa, you just sent the wrong message all around. You just bigged up the white guy against me in the white media.’ I’m not saying that in a racial way. I’m saying what it was just the wrong way to go about it. [...] My presence is charity! Just this guy who came from Marcy projects apartment 530C, to these places of me playing in Yankee stadium tonight.

On the George Zimmerman verdict
I was really angry, I didn’t sleep for two days. I was really angry about it. We all knew there was still a bit of racism in America but for it to be so blatant… Ask yourself the question, ‘Didn’t Travyon have a right to stand his ground?’ He was being chased, he fought back. He may have won. That doesn’t mean he’s a criminal. He won. If you chase me and you try to attack me and I defend myself, how can I be in the wrong? How is that right? This guy went to get some skittles and go back to watch the All-Star game. He had plans. He had no intentions of robbing anyone’s home. [...] It’s a thing where it’s like a reminder of, ‘We still got a long way to go.’ It’s beautiful because this generation right now, they don’t see color in that way. [...] They’re funding George Zimmerman because they want to hold on to their guns. [...] We all know it was wrong.

On the new crop of rappers
I’m doing all of this stuff for the next generation to come in and take advantage of it. So, whatever took me 15 years to accomplish, it takes them 5 years to accomplish. It encourages me when I see this young crop of next new legends. I’m ecstatic. I’m willing to help, I’m like, ‘What do you need?’ I’m offering help in anyway. I’m constantly opening doors for that next generation to come in. I feel good about it. I’m happy because there was a point when I was like, ‘What’s gonna happen next?’ A couple years ago, there wasn’t no Kendricks, Coles and Drakes. It was like wait a minute, ‘Where is this about to go?’ After we finish our tour of duty, who is going to pick up the manual and take it further.

On Drake being his biggest competitor
Drake, we have a great relationship. I know he feels like, ‘I’m the next one, I’m right here,’ we hear the lines, ‘feelin’ like the throne is for the takin, watch me take it..’ you know he’s feeling it. It’s cool, it wasn’t meant with malice or disrespect, it’s just like ‘I’m comin, acknowledge my existence.’ There is a respect thing but there is also a competitive thing and its been done the right way. He’s definitely the one that’s reared his head as the guy. He’s definitely Kobe Bryant.

On comparing himself to great artists and poets
There is no different. Shakespeare was a man who wrote poetry. I’m a man who writes poetry. Why not compare yourself to the best? I’m supposed to be here to be second best? I’m not doing this for that. If other people are cool with settling or not putting themselves in that light, that’s their personal preference. If you don’t want to be in that light, that’s fine. I’m not mad at you! I don’t have an opinion on what you want to do, if you want to be second, that’s cool, so don’t have an opinion on me wanting to be Jean Michel [Basquiat] or Shakespeare.

People don’t realize, I put a lot of my life into what I am doing right now. I didn’t just have a hit record and get lucky, I put a lot of my life into it so the things that come out of it, is not due to this bravado and arrogance, I have confidence because of the work I put in. I put in so much work! I’m claiming four classics.
