The lines that make yall love this n*gga were the lines that he stole.

For example on 99 Problems he said: Long time ago, a n*gga like myself had to strong arm a ho. And this is not a ho in the sense of having a pus*y, but a pus*y having no God damn sense tryna push me....

That line belongs to Bun B. The n*gga stole from UGK and everyone thinks he put UGK on the map.

I dont understand what is the big deal paying homage to another rapper by using one of their lines. Out of the hundreds of orginal lines he has made, people want to focus on that. I could see if he was wack like Freeway. He has been in the game so long and went from drug dealer to corporate. That is like Kennedy and J D Rockefeller status. That is some Mafia sh*t. What other rapper has done that? There are a list of rapper who are allowed to say what they want to say and he is on that list.
Baby how is it paying homage? If he has said "like Em said what do I think of success? it sucks..." that would be homage because your noting the original artist but he didn't he spat them as if he wrote them. And i've seen a couple of people with that line in their sigs quoting Jay-Z as having said that, you telling me that aint biting. Just like he didn't say "the suade timbs on my feet make my cypher complete" 7 years after Nas said that on Illmatic or "I saw the fork in the road and went straight" 10 years after Slick Rick. How is that paying homage?

Ight let me ask you this to put it in perspective. Have you ever been listening to a Jay track and in back of your mind you hear lines and think "i've heard this somewhere before ". Jigga is in top 5 emcees of all time I aint denying that but to listen to his albums and say he didn't steal lines and styles from various artists to produce the rap persona that he is today, you'd have to be deaf homie

Grown man I put hands on you
Dig a hole in the desert
they build The Sands on you
Lay out blueprint plans on you
We Rat Pack n*ggaz, let Sam tap dance on you
Then, I Sinatra shot ya God damn you
I put the boy in the box
like David Blaine, let the audience watch
it ain't a thang
Y'all wish I was frontin, I George Bush the button
In front of y’all
You in your car, lift up your hood, n*gga run it
Then lift up your whole hood like you got oil under it
Your boy got the goods y'all don't want none of it
Like, castor oil, I Castor Troy you
Change your face or the bullets change all that for you
y'all n*ggaz is targets
Y'all garages for bullets
please don't make me park it in your upper level
valet a couple strays
from the 38 special, n*gga, God bless you

My street mentality flip bricks forever, know me and money
we like armed co-defendants, n*gga we stick together
Sh*t whatever for this cheddar ran my game into the ground
Hustle harder to see if indictment time came around
Now you can look up and down the streets and I can't be found
Put in twenty-four hour shifts but, that ain't me now
Got a face too easy to trace, n*ggaz mouths got slow leaks
Had to hide between my workers, couldn't play those streets
She got his face like Mercury you jerkin me? Hectic
Had to call upon my wolves to send, n*ggaz the message
I said this: 'Let's play fair and we can stay here
I'm trying to transform you Boyz II Men like daycare'
Hey there's money to be made and, n*ggaz got the picture
Stopped playing with my paper and, we got richer
Then hard times fell upon us, half of my staff
had warrants, the other half, in the casket lay dormant
I felt like life was cheating me, for the first time
in my life I was getting money but it was like my concious was eating me
Was this a lesson God teaching me? Was he saying that?
I'm playing the game straight from Hell from which few came back
like bad coke, pimp or die, was my mindframe bad
Was n*ggaz thinkin simplify was turning cocaine crack?
Ain't a whole lot of brain to that, just trying to maintain a stack
and knock a lot like two trains that's on the same track
'Fore I get my life together like the oars I bring back
In the bottom of the pot where no, water gets hot
Got my transporter take it 'cross the border then stop
Set up shop with a quarter of rock, here's the plan
For three straight weeks, n*ggaz slaughtered the block
But you know the game is 'lluted, fu*ked up me and my dues
One drop can wipe a n*gga out, faster than the cops
and this unstable way of living just, had to stop
Half of my n*ggaz got time, we done real things
By ninety-four became the subject of half of y'all n*ggaz rhymes
Public apoligies to the families of those caught up in my street
But that's the life for us lost souls brought up in the streets
The life and times of a demonic mind, excited with crime
And the lavish luxuries that just excited my mind
I figured, 'Sh*t why risk myself I just write it in rhymes
And let you feel me, and if you don't like it then fine'
The mindstate, of a n*gga who boosted the crime rate
so high in one city they send National Guards to get me
Ya dig?

I found a new route, you bout to see my life change
I make the means justify the ends, I make the cream
materialize keys to a Benz, and so I'm rollin
For now, holdin down the fort, who's controllin?
The ground's gotta blow em, yep, y'all shoulda told em
Uhh, my first felony's approachin, copped my first key
Took a freeze, now I'm frozen
I bought a black Mac, I'm outta control
Losin bankrolls on blackjack, you gotta know
it always crossed my mind that Feds be tappin the lines like Gregory Hines
Still on the phone discussin my biz like it could never be mines
I know the price, know the risk, know the wrongs, and the rights
Still my blood flows ice, it's just my life

Who ever thought young Shawn Carter would change the game?
Used to rap to the raindrops off my window pane
Duckin the plain cops, pushin indo and 'caine
At the kitchen table late night, no pen, just my brain
First album n*ggaz love me cause they thought I was poor
Guess I'm successful; industry don't love me no more
Well I'm the same n*gga from your corner, bubblin raw
Skully tilted, pants saggin, damn near touchin the floor
And I come with do-rags to your so-called awards
T-shirt with my chain out like fu*k y'all all
Retrospect ain't been the same since I lost my dad
He's still alive, but still fu*k you, don't cross my path
A&R's had me feelin like moss in the drab
So I turned the league out with "Reasonable Doubt"
Get your CD's out, let's go, song for song
I'm the illest n*gga doin it til y'all prove me wrong
Do you believe?
It's Hova the God, uhh, uhh, uhh..

Yo, y'all n*ggas truly ain't ready for this "Dynasty" thing
Y'all thinkin "Blake Carrington", I'm thinkin more like "Ming"
I got four nephews, and they all right in
They all young and wild, plus they all like things
And I'm havin a child, which is more frighting
But cha'll about to witness is big business kid
Big bosses, c*cky, and big Benzsesses
Come through flossin'em shiny rims it is
An office don't pop up in their sentences
I think you understand what type of event this is
I don't think you know how focused young Memphis is
or how Sigel's so real, when you add on Amil
This is much more than rap, it's black entrepreneurship
Clothing, movie, and films, we come to conquer it all
Roc-A-Wear, eighty mill like, eighteen months
You could bullsh*t wit rap if you want, muthafu*kers
When it's all said and done, we gon see what's what
Holla at Hov, I'll be in the cut (What, huh)
