Empire State of Mind

shot7.com Jay-Z in Toronto for ACC concert and press photos 2009

In light of the mad amounts of press Jay Z has been getting lately, it seemed fitting that we give him a post.  Hova’s been on tour in Canada lately, and has been wowing people with his new album. 

One of the better moments in the career of Jay Z has to be the opportunity to perform at the World Series.  He and Alicia Keys got to perform their track Empire State of Mind at Yankee Stadium (the new one, obviously) and that resulted in the Yankees beating the Phillies.  Well, maybe not resulted, but it’s a nice coincidence that a song about New York pride accompanied a Yankee victory.  That must have pissed of Phillies fans everywhere.  Still, the Phillies can probably dig the line that Jay “made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can”. 

Speaking of that (like that segueway?), Pitchfork is reporting that Beanie Siegel (a Philly resident) is unimpressed with the jigga man.  Apparently Beanie released a diss track called "What You Talkin Bout (I Ain’t Ya Average Cat)".

According to Pitchfork, on the track Beanie talks

“about how Jay allegedly "snitched" on him and basically won’t return his calls. Unlike most Jay-Z disses, though, this one isn’t just petty and attention-grabbing. Beanie is clearly torn up by the falling out, as shown by a long, ranting outro during which he seems to be near tears.

  1. I would like to show my thanks to you just for bailing me
    out of this particular problem. As a result of exploring through the world wide web and
    coming across tips which were not helpful, I was thinking my entire life was well over.

    you’ve sorted out through your article is a serious case, and ones that could have in a negative way damaged my entire career if I
    hadn’t discovered your web blog. The know-how
    and kindness in playing with the whole thing was important.
