    Dope. We need Hov back. He’s forgotten that he has an obligation to a hip hop tradition that goes as far back as BDK and Jaz. I always imagined that Jay would progress like Nas and AZ, Rae or Roc Marciano. Instead he’s progressed more like Puff, which is not a problem but Hov has become more of an executive that happens to write. The Hov we love(d), was a poet that recognized: the “executive” is just a hustle to facilitate the poetry.

    Visualizin the realism of life and actuality, fuck who’s the baddest, a person’s status, depends on salary…
    And my mentality is, money orientated, I’m destined to live the dream, for all my peeps who never made it.

    wow wasnt expecting this to coem to light of day, nice. DP 2 still best hands down tho

  • DJ Semtex’s Prothsetic

    kinda weak in comparison to other dp’s

  • Space Ghost

    @Bumpy Johnson. I co-sign. HOV make’s sound so effortless. Sure he goes on cruise control at times, but I ‘clare….when that man WANTS TO FLOW…….HE IS SUPERB!!!

  • Black Shady

    not as dope as the other 2 true, but its really nice to hear

  • J M Holla

    To all yall younginz.. This is just a ew beat, with various lyrics taken from tapes as early as 2008. Read-up!


  • Young Lucky

    niggas like @brza are the reason artists shelf records and never let us in on gems as such. “wish it was mastered a bit better”. BITCH, stop complaining as if it was mandated that he let us get this one here. niggas will find a way to complain about the pussy of their dreams while up in it i swear

  • Reg

    Its not really a new beat, its just Dead Presidents in reverse… and the “Knee in this dough/ needin this dough” makes this version a classic.. “as long as ya math is fast if ya readings slow… classic

    this beat is pretty crazy tho

  • Johnny

    Not HOV at his best, but I guess. Can not convince me on this one. Not easy to re-create greatness compared to the first DP, but stashed away was better for it IMO.

  • brza

    @ Young Lucky – WHO HURT YOU?! no complaints here. you obviously read this the wrong way.

  • now this is dope.. good shit coming from jay man really tight shit flow is great !

    really some inspirational shit i love to learn from him to add some shit to better my stuff

  • Dope. Been waiting on the full version of this track for a long time.

  • Atown beatz

    Get banging industry standard drums from here:

  • “Smoke-A-Lot”

    man the people who run this site need to grow some balls and stop sucking dick

  • Blu-Ray

    @reg what are u talking about? the first verse of this came out back in either 06 or 07. this is not new. this was suppose to come out back then but they never released any of the second verse.

  • This is real hip hop!! Not for those corn ball cats!! Where is this at? Got to be on an upcoming album!!
