    My brain is so weird when it comes to how songs get stuck in my head. I was at the grocery store one day in the produce section. I was trying to think of what I wanted to get. I remembered I wanted blueberries. All of a sudden this song popped in my head except it went like this. blueberry, strawberry, rasberry, cranberry, still berry. Lol.

  • Rell Rell

    Please don't die over the neighborhood that's your mama renting. That's deep

  • Kevin Mott

    A rap song about waking up and Realizing you aren’t shit unless you invest your money. True work of art

  • blue-eyed savage artist

    This isn't racist.... It's truth✊

  • Boriiing Lastname

  • Hakam Malla

    The song is underrated and of course, radio stations don't play songs that speak the truth. Wow thanks for all the likes much appreciated

  • Colora Blue!

  • Tyrone Taylor

    O J deserved this diss. Watched the documentary on ESPN. Dude is straight garbage.

  • Mathew Aceves

  • James Schultz

    Now when I hear the beginning, I always hear, "Easy money.... Gon' be a Surgical Summer!" :)Push!

  • KasirRham

    The Jay-Bo character JayZ created deserves a show. It could be some hard hitting social comentary like the Boondocks but in this old Warner Bros art style.

  • Weird Entertainment Network

    WHAT I GOT FROM THIS VIDEO: Basically, Don't spend your money on clothing and cars. Rather invest your money in real estate and buy things that grow in value with time. Even if you are a drug dealer, you can launder money by buying properties in the same neighborhood that your momma is renting. on top of this, don't be so focused on your "label" and focus on becoming successful because at the end of the day we are all the same.

  • Jennefer Cameron

    We needed this music video in this generation... 💯

  • Blair Kullaj

    Nobody caught the closing scene? Rich person (Jay-Z) leaving earth on a spaceship, while the earth floods? Watch that be some Simpsons type prediction lol

  • Richard Ocampo

    "Drug dealing aside, Ghost Writing Aside- Let's have a heart to heart about.."- Wait, wrong song

  • The Beanie Lord

    Instrumental of the year???

  • NemRaps

    "Ya'll on the 'gram holdin' money to your earThere's a disconnect, we dont call that money over here"

  • IsaiahChavezCA

    "I'm tryna give you a million dollars worth of game for $9.99."He's dropping life gems all throughout this entire album. Life advise. Financial advise. This isn't a Jay-Z album. This is a Shawn Carter album. One of his best. Grown folk rap.

  • Axe God

    Happy 49th Birthday, Jay!

  • Maat11

    This might be racist but I'm looking at the video with a historical standpoint to see how racist people where back in the 30s and 40s

  • Versett i

    I'm not black. I'm Sitting Bull. My men (savages in Caucasian Dictionary) killed General Custer and because of that I'm a historic legend. My name still to this day gives even Donald Trump goosebumps

  • Jeremy Sartin

    This is art in it's rarest form.

  • GirlsMeet KPop

    Songs Like this never get played on the radio because it tells the truth this world is a lie the truth is hidden, 98% of our history is lost. How much you wanna bet 30% was found but not told.

  • Mica Oya

    The 53k that dislike this are deaf

  • Eddy Bizimana

    Racism is still here and everyday


    3:45 makes me sad because the little white kid in the corner is smiling, showing that less than 200 years ago children were probably being Brought up in a way that probably made discriminate against black people. Also a lot of the imagery in this video reminded how privileged I am not only to be able to live life without fear but to be able to learn about prejudice very easily at a young age.
