Black man's worst financial enemies: lust for Women that didn't come up with you, jewelry, European luxury goods, and foreign cars. Everything Dame and Jay pushed onto us via their songs. Jay proved to be the biggest scumbag of them all so he won....They are an example for Black men not to follow. The Roc stood for the opposite of who we should be.
That being said, I will never be happy and feel somehow satisfied to watch a Black man go out like this. Any Black person that feels this way is a sucka. The man tricked y'all into thinking your only validation of your wealth is buying their sh*t. This is what happens when you invest outside of your community. Its a fu*ked up cycle. But none of y'all care as long as you favorite rapper is ballin'
You're one of those people who don't know how the world works yet try and kick some knowledge.
I don't think I would have responded to this if so many idiots didn't quote you, but whatever.
Jay-Z is a financially literate person. Dame Dash, Beans, Cam, etc. are not.
It's that simple. The opportunities were there. Jay-Z claimed this numerous times. There were opportunities for them to secure themselves and they chose not to.
He said this back on the Blueprint "chains are cool to cop, but more important are lawyer fees". In other words, he's suggesting that we should take care of ourselves before living lavishly.
So do you before you ramble like an idiot, pay attention. You may actually learn something. Because you sound no different from Dash and all these other broke n*ggas. You're too hard-headed.
