Grammy No B: Jay-Z
There’s this blowhard host on the local Vancouver sports talk radio show who keeps complaining about today’s music. Typical Canadian rock’n’roll beer dude. Completely ignorant about music other than what’s played on his own small little block.
Last week he was discussing Springsteen at the Super Bowl and the future of the half time performance and he was like – will Jay-Z be relevant in 30 years? Will Jay-Z continue to sell out tours like the old rock timers?
F-cking ignorant douche.
Needless to say, he’s never listened to Jay-Z’s lyrics. Lyrics last night with Coldplay:
C. Martin, see Malcolm
See Biggie, see Pac
See success and its outcome
See Jesus, see Judas
See Ceasar, see Brutus
See success is like suicide…
Suicide is a suicide
If you succeed prepare to be crucified
Yeah they sue you, you settle
Every step you take they remind you that you ghetto
This is poetry too.
Where was Beyonce?
Was she working?
She better have been working because otherwise the message is that she only shows up when it’s about her. When SHE gets to perform. When SHE’s been nominated.
Having said that, I think Solange her sister was seated next to Jay at one point. No need to worry. At least not about his wife.
His protégé Rihanna however is another story. And if this business with Chris Brown is true… oh trouble. Jay-Z will f-ck his sh-t up.
