I'm thinking the interview in this magazine will go a little something like this:
"I'm Addicted to the Game". So you know what? "The Ruler's Back" for "The Takeover"! Holla! I've semi-retired for two/three years and enjoyed "Big Pimpin'" Bey, but I wasn't "Feelin' It" 'cause I've got "2 Many Hoes". So I decided once again that the "City is Mine" and "Ain't No Ni99a" (including the lil homey) messing with me.
"U Don't Know" how many times I've been "All Around the World" since I announced my retirement and ya'll wouldn't believe how much "Some People Hate". That was my motivation though. That's why "The Ruler's Back" to "Change the Game" because when you're from "Where I'm From" it's the "Things That You Do" on the mic that make you "Brooklyn's Finest", and I have to reclaim my throne. Hovie's home!
So all you "Imaginary Players" (50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, lil homey, TIP, Jeezy, Rick Ross, The Game, etc.) can "Bring It On". But I promise you that challenging me will be one of your biggest "Regrets". So, "COME AND GET MEEEEEEEEEEEE" m*th%rf&ck$rs!
Until the day my album drops, just know that "All I Need" is "Guns & Roses" to come out and "Justify My Thug". Hell, not even "Lucifer" could stop me (pun intended). Besides, you know you want this "Encore". Sorry to tell you everybody, but "Somehow, Someway" "My First Song" wasn't my last, and "Soon You'll Understand" why...
If you're a Jay-Z fan, you'll understand the quotes. If you're not, you still don't have an excuse since I'm linking to his "discography" (sort of)!
Personally, I think it's a pretty selfish move if he really does drop an album prior to mid/late December. You've got a Nas album dropping in November (7th). It's alleged that Jay's album will drop on the 14th or 21st of November, which will undoubtedly cut into Nas's sales! That's WACK! Why sign Nas to Def Jam and then release your album a week or two after his? Knowing that your immense popularity combined with the speculation of you possibly coming out of retirement (as you know Mr. Jay-Z) probably means you'll move 1,000,000 units in the first week...That's WACK! Whereas Nas will probably struggle to move 300,000 his first week considering he has YET to drop a single. You're trying to get this guy cast for "Dancing with the Stars" or the "Surreal Life", aren't you?
I love your work Jay-Z! You're my favorite rapper, the best all time in my mind. But come on man! What's really going on here? Did you get fired like the media has been speculating? Did Beyonce pull your card so much on "Ring the Alarm" that you have to take out your frustration by venting to the world via a new CD?
You're making it harder for me to take up for you when I argue with Laf over email about your selfishness and arrogance. Think about the Joe Buddens, Juelz's (okay, maybe not him so much), Jeezy, Method Mans, etc. that you have signed to your label. These guys need to eat too! But I guess not only do you overdo it thunnie when it comes to battling (see Prodigy of Mobb Deep), but you overdo it when stroking your own ego as well. Damn son, that's NOT what's really good!
