I know it was. That's what I meant. It serves a very shallow purpose and has to appeal to people who don't necessarily hear hip-hop verses the way most hardcore fans do. I mean I see the parallels with no depth to the verses and can also see this song being played at 'hip' places around the country that appeal to a variety of people.

jay-z is a businessman, not an artist.

those two types rarely mix

Take a break and pause to listen to the actual song, it's not bad at all. The one with Drake is club hit, as we all know. Reminder is a great song, so what if the hook is off, does this mean Jay can't write lyrics anymore? If he changed the hook or had someone else do it then it would be a powerful song.

Eh. This summer I kind of turned around and became more balanced. I am a big fan of Nas now and I'm more realistic about Jay-Z. I honestly don't think these songs are bad He's had way worse.

Show me waht ya got babayyyyyy

worst track i've ever heard, and i'm a certified jay-z stan.

the only question i have is why the f*ck is drake on his album? BP3 no less... i can ansewr that, and it's cuz he has the biggest buzz [or one of anyway] in the game right now. why not get t.i. on a track? drake? are you f*cking serious? this lil n*gga hasn't even dropped an album yet and you're letting him on one of your singles???? i gotta question the reasoning behind this, cuz drake can rap a lil bit but he aint nice enough to be on hov's album, especially BP3. just smh @ the whole situation. it's looking like american gangster will be jay's last great album.

huge Jay-Z fan

this song is certified garbage

horrible is generous

He better not use these bull**** patterns and flow on empire state of mind, even though if it isn't produced by Premier it's already a complete and total failure. Jay looks maaaaaaaaaaaaad suspect if he doesn't have Nas on a track literally titled Empire State of Mind.

I'm not a writer I'm a biter!

It's my understanding that the BluePrint was based on things that inspired him growing up, so the BluePrint III is about the people that are going to inspire the new artists of the future. That's why he has Drake, Kid Cudi and J.Cole as featured artists. These guys are young and are going to drop a decent album in the future that will inspire a new age of hip hop. This album is for the people going into hip hop in 5 years or so. That type of thing.

Yeah except Drake and Kid Cudi should not be hip hop five years from now. Matter fact, hopefully they won't be hip hop five months from now....

He could switch sounds at will, and get your feet stomping to his beats. Every Beat I've heard from him sounds similar from that Madonna/JT track, Flo-Rida track, and now Off That. smh.
Yup, people were ALL over his nuts after Dirt Off Your Shoulder, which is a great beat I do have to admit.

I don't think this album was his best album but it still has some good stuff on it. Was anyone here able to score tix to Jay-Z's 9/11 benefit concert at Madison Square Garden??? I didn't get any it literally sold out in minutes. But i'm gonna watch it on TV, Fuse is doing a live broadcast of the concert at 9PM... Here's the info if anyone is interested: http://www.fuse.tv/ontv/shows/jay-z/index.html
