Jay-Z - Show Me What You Got
"Heard the beat and I ain't know what to rhyme"
Jay-Z - Show Me What You Got (mp3) (produced by Just Blaze)
Kidz in the Hall - Don't Stop (allegedly produced by Just Blaze)
Those horns are insane, but what in the holy Ipanema girl is Shawn rhyming about?
Update: Either Jay hasn't lost his swagger jacking steez or Justin is one hell of a shady producer. Turns out Kidz in the Hall had already used the same beat (minus the sampled Flava Flav vocals) for their song "Don't Stop" which appears on their forthcoming longplayer School was My Hustle. (School was My Hustle was also supposedly A&R'ed by Just.) Ok, I'm not really surprised, seeing as this is the same Just Blaze that flipped Black Moon's "Stay Real" into Jay-Z's "P.S.A." Not to mention that he also pissed off Mathematics (according to Dreddy Kruger) by giving "Mighty Healthy" a musical surgery that resulted in "The Champ."
I could go on but I don't want Def Jam and their FBI friends to shut down my little blog.
You be the judge.
