Jay Z Names Names In Insults
Jay Z has been known to be sly about his insults through his career. Usually he throws out a subliminal that you’d have to be quick to catch, but sometimes he throws out direct shots and doesn’t hold back. Here are some of those shots. Take a look at when Jay drops that real.
“And I’m sorry Miss Rosie Perez
I call a spade a spade, it just is what it is” – “Blueprint 2”
Rosie said that she didn’t appreciate Jay’s use of the B-word, so Jay had to let her know that he wasn’t going to back down.
“Went from Nasty Nas to Esco’s trash
Had a spark when you started but now you’re just garbage” – “Takeover”
This was part of their massive 2001 feud. Things got ugly.
“I’m just trying to find common ground
‘fore Mr. Belafonte come and chop a n*** down
Mr. Day O, major fail” – “Nickels And Dimes”
Harry Belafonte said Jay wasn’t doing enough for the community and Jay sent a shot back. Not cool.
“I don’t care if you C. Delores Tuck-it
Or you Bill O’Reilly, you only rilin me up” – “Threats”
More ether for the Fox News crew.
“F****’ with me, you gotta drop a mill” – “The Ruler’s Back”
A nod to him dropping the lady rapper from the label…and nothing was the same.
“Sorry Mr. Drizzy for so much art talk/ Silly me rappin’ ’bout s*** that I really bought” – “We Made It Freestyle”
Drake caught some strays…will he respond?
“I don’t care if you Mobb Deep, I hold triggers to crews” – “The Takeover”
Another victim in Hov’s greatest diss song ever.
“Scott Boras you over baby” – “Crown”
