Nov 4 - Jay-Z: "It's like going to war with Bush"
 

 
In the November issue of XXL mag..........

I'mma post some random sh*t outta the mag y'all might want to read.

Your harshest critic about the Roc fallout was Cam'ron. I know youve publicly dismissed his diss record toward you, but you must have gotten some satisfaction that the attack didn't take his career to the next level.

I'm happy that the world got to see that. That'll make everybody know that that isn't the way out. Everybody thinks that's the way out. You say something about somebody that's popular - just talk reckless, go kamikaze, whatever. Like, what are you gonna do, k!ll me? k!ll me? [Laughs] Jay's not gonna k!ll me.


I know a side of you wants to laugh it off, but he must have gotten under your skin. Or anytime you hear about someone new goin' at you ...


Sadly, I expect that now. Anything. People are missing the whole sh*t - integrity. There are ways to go about it. Now it's like a whatever-I-gotta-do-to-get-it mentality, with no ethics. Nastiness, bullsh*t, marketing. I expect it. It doesn't even anger me anymore. In the beginning, it did. I used to think about it, like Why would you want war with someone like me? In the real world, it's dangerous.

It's like going to war with Bush. He has too much strength and too much paper. You're not gonna win that war. There's no way around it. You're not gonna win that war in the street. You can't. Honestly. You're talking about from a real guy perspective, this isn't entertainment. You just can't. He's too powerful. The paper is too long. Leave that guy alone. And on the entertainment side, I'm powerful too. I get busy. I can really rap. I got classics. I got fans and an army.

Most times you seem to carry yourself like you're above the fray, but then there've been times, especially on the Angie Martinez Show, where you lost your cool.

I love those moments. You know, everything in life happens for a reason. I'm never afriad to say my true emotions, no matter how unpopular. I know who I am. I don't have to pretend. That, to me is the problem with Hip-Hop - people are pretending. I don't have to put up a front or act a certian way all the time. I can smile, and I can have fun. I'm not gonna wear Nike Airs on a 200- foot yacht and it's 400 degrees outside.

I'm not gonna do it. I don't care. I'm not walking around the city, muthafu*ka. I'm not walking around in the city in jeans and flip-flops. I'm not doing that either. But I;m not gonna be in St.-Tropez ... I had on the fu*kin' white linen with the Purple Label pinstripe pants. I'm gonna dress according to the weather. I'm not gonna wear a long T-shirt down to my knees and walk around the beach. I'm not doing that. And if that means that I'm not Hip-Hop, then I'm not Hip-Hop. fu*k it. I'm secure with who I am. I don't have nothing to prove. I'm a man first.

Yeah there's like 5 pages and he talks about some real sh*t.

Def Jam most notably. I think the part of the interview that got me the most is how he saw the breakup with Dame and Biggs.

Lets think for a little here.

Jay-Z didn't respond to Cam because k!lla Season was releasing and that would have given him more publicity. He said this a few times, but now since Jay is on his own time, WITH his own album releasing, why not?

Cam isn't releasing any album soon. Jay k!lled his hype just by ignoring him. Now Jay is building his hype by talking about it now. In other words, Jay owned the sh*t out of Cam'Ron.

Lets think again.

Jay hasn't even released a diss track for Dipset. Never will. But then again, Jim Jones already took his shots at him now. Jay is on the comeback, once again with hype for Kingdom Come. On top of that Jay already knows Jimmy isn't as much as a threat of Cam (Which isn't much anyway), so there's nothing to lose for this n*gga now.

No diss song = no publicity for Dipset.

And Jay is still clowning these cats. You can tell it's working because "U Mad".

yeah fam, Jay is probably gettin that good commercial appeal... but from what I see in my city... n*ggas is saying "baaaaallllliiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnn" & are not singin "Show me what you got" sorry but n*ggas in da hood are not bumpin his sh*t right now... ive heard nearly everybody bumpin "we fly high" though... Jay-Z is not really takin anything away from Dipsets huge fanbase

u funny but i aint got no reason to be mad. i listen to dipset but it aint like i roll with them or nothing. jay aint say nothing about me and im pretty sure he wont so why would i get mad at him. its just that people like u be hating on n*ggas like dipset, game, weezy, etc. and saying they cant rap when them n*ggas out there just trying to make money like everyone else and they gotta be doing something right because they got money.

That's the thing with two different singles. Jay's single aint for the street. Whatever Dipset makes is for the street. Two different audiences. Jay's is going to sell more though.

Street sells = won't even go gold.
