    SIDEBAR: DOPE VID/DOCUMENTARY!!!! GOOD SHIT JAY!!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • tha OG

    Ok video NOT good & not bad ok

  • 80griots

    @ 1234, Actually it is the other way round. The difference between Jay and Ye is, he has to come yap about his grievances to the public.

    Example: Jay Z recorded Oceans over a year ago and speaks on Billie Holidays Strange Fruit. Kanye then sample Strange Fruit on New Slaves and Blood on the Leaves and releases his album ahead of MCHG. If the tables were turned, he’d be out crying about how Jay stole his idea.

    Chill with your stannery, this video wan nothing kanyesque…

  • TImeChange

    well,if this was just a music video,i think it’s wack, but it says it’s a performance art film,so i guess it gets a pass.

  • prettynana43

  • Big Aristotle

    “Simply ingenious an masterful”….He pushes the envelope too further the culture. Do you not see his vision?….. “Futher proof the gene pool could use a little more chlorine” #Facts

  • https://twitter.com/P0is0nedKoolA @p0is0nedkoola

    You ignorant Stans are beyond hilarious

    Let’s bypass the fact that Jay Z who’s “pushing the culture” did a show for rich people and their kids in a place that the hood doesn’t go to or can afford to unless they “know someone”

    Stick in the token dumb B Dot shot of him being a good servant boy & throwing up the ROC to appease the dumb fellas in the hood into the cauldron & you have a perfect mix of a rich guy who can only name drop the two famous painters ( who have nothing to do w/each other) names trying to pass himself as an “artist”

    Well, at least one of you may actually take time to learn about Picasso & perhaps other painters & eras of painting , but I doubt it.

    This is nothing more than a lift of Marina’s previous work which in itself is a gratuitous piece of self-indulgence done to give herself attention for rich people to stare at. EXACTLY what Jay Z did.
    Hilarious

    “The Culture”
    I don’t recall goofy upper west side Apartments blasting “it takes a nation of millions” but I guess I could be wrong

    Throw up the ROC cause your credibility has been thrown out…….

    Real Talk….this is so different and refreshing for a hip hop video. I had to watch it….think about what I’d just witnessed. Process that and then decide whether I liked it or not.

    Ok…..I like it. I’m not gonna say #New Rules because it would be cliche at this juncture. Damn….I just said it, didn’t I? Oh well…PICASSO BABY!!! Dope, Period, no comma.

    A room full of NYC art elite + JAYZ = Hot garbage. It was so shitty that JAYZ peeled out 2 seconds after he finished. I want my 10 minutes back. The SNL JAYZ performance of shows his real talent, he crushed it then.
