  • Charblastaur

    I like how OJ is the only one that isn’t animated like the stereotype because he’s not black, he’s OJ.


    Today Jay-Z is announced as the first Billionaire in Hip-hop

  • Tony P

    "Please don't die over the neighborhood that your Mama renting" Goddamn. Soooooo true.

  • Mohit Chaturvedi

    After beat drops....."I am like.....Drug dealing aside ghost writing aside.....nope...". Remembers it's a JayZ song

  • transcendentmuzic

    "I'm trying to give you a million dollars worth of game for $9.99" - Billion dollar Jay

  • Joseph Schultz

  • Pfunzo Mulaudzi

    “Im not black im oj”“Ok”

  • Raeqwon17

    "take your money and buy the neighborhood" just like Nipsey. RIP

  • the_pale_ rider_

    Nothing never changes, if you're lucky you will learn to be different.

  • Nuck Fugget

    Can the person who animated this, get a raise or paid way more?

  • Siphesihle Malinga

    This track so deep, that's how J got to the billion status!!


    Jayz talking about investing money.

  • Glowzs

    I’m not a businessman, I’m a business, man. -realest shii

  • Shampoo Fully

  • Mathew Roberts

    I love the Nina Simone sample

  • LeBeautiful

    the imagery, the lyrics...its perfect.

  • Doggo

    This song is a masterpiece, the visuals, the flow, the cadence, the beat and it packs one hell of a message, Jay still got it.

  • Fitria Ningsih

    Yall on the gram, holdin money to your ear, theres a disconnect-we dont call that money over here yeah.Thats how you know...Jay has been wearing Bill and Warren's glasses.

  • flyde

    The house Slave look like Samuel L from Django

  • Wilpaulii

    Story of OJ is a masterpiece. I’m not a massive Jay-Z fan, but I think this one was masterful, and I don’t think you can just listen to this song, you have to watch the video to really appreciate it

    I'ma play the corners where the hustlers be I told him, "Please don't die over the neighborhood That your mama rentin' Take your drug money and buy the neighborhood That's how you rinse it"THATS FACTS

  • Kyle

    I'm not a big Jay-Z guy... but this is literally one of the most sincere and also grimey-true glimpses into real street poetry.

  • Ahntawn Taylor


  • Ronald Noel

    as soon as the song starts, a voice in my head says, ‘EASY MONEY’😭

  • Ian homi3

    Jay Z you are a genius. Thank you for the good music sir!

    All my black friends: respect me and don't mind my race whatsoeverMe:*listens to this song* my race has made a serious laps in judgement and I'm sorry

  • Ultra Mega Hype Beast

    Does anyone else like it when Jay says "okay?"

  • Cat on LSD

    Jay z on such other level that his songs give financial advice lool

  • J K

    Not the biggest Jay Z fan, but I always appreciate him being an apostle for Capitalism. That's the perverse irony in all of this, that the biggest hip hop artists are the staunchest examples of capitalism can do. That's a 180 from what alot of AA politicians (and even church leaders) advocate.

  • Orrin Warner, Jr.

    "You on the gram holding money to ya EAR, there's a disconnect...we don't call that money over here (HEAR)"

  • SkittlesTM

    This song is definitely a song I would watch in front of my parents with no clean version.

  • Jimbo Jones

  • André Diniz
