    This is what I’m talking about! Jay-Z has done what I’ve been hoping a major black rapper would do – say exactly what it really is. Straight up dropping knowledge and I really hope yall brothers reading this are listening to him on “The Story of O.J” aka “Still Nigga” which is off of his new album 4:44. I’m going to post the lyrics down below so we don’t get distracted by my nonsense, but I’m loving this. Especially how they sampled some Nina Simone and gave it that jazzy mature rap sound. Personally, I think this it lit. For example, some of my closest people are sneaker heads, my little cuz, one of my closest boys and etc. but I occasionally talk ish to them about how they’re making me money since I owned a few Nike stocks. So as everyone goes crazy over Jordans and Nikes, despite the fact that I only own two pairs and they aren’t even new, yall are making me money. Or while yall dudes are in the strip club making it rain, I have that same money going towards my future in some ETFs or by leveraging a matching 401k. If I had kids that money would be spent on them instead of some women in the club, but that’s just me, and evidently Jay-Z.

    If you’re interested in learning more about financial wellness and general business tips, since you essentially need to manage and organize your money just like a business would, than peep my business section here. I’m clearly no expert, and far from Jay-Z, but I’m continuing to make progress and if I can help prevent some of yall from making the same financial or business mistakes that I made then I’m going to share those tips and advice. I’m all about empowerment and on this record, Jay Z can literally be heard talking about the importance of your credit and financial freedom for you and your family.

    Damn this record and video are so dope. And a true statement for his career and the culture. WE WOKE. He’s at the top of the world and he’s telling every other black rapper, and person for that matter, you still black despite your position. Even as the most powerful man in the world, President Barack Obama still had to deal with them simply because he was black… and he’s only half black lol. Wait until we get a real pro-black brother in the White House who actually has black people top of mind, they’re really going to hate us then lol. Jokes aside, this is one of those instant classics in my book. Anytime it’s some sort of #protestMusic where your speaking some real game instead of this played out gangsta ish, I’m for it. And I understand some of “that life”, ya’ll don’t know my older brothers, but I’m hip. But ‘that life’ isn’t the only option is my main point. So while Future and Lil whoever wants to rap about popping pills, drinking lean, shooting up cars and other brothers, or doing ecstasy all night, Jay-Z is dropping some real jewels for everyone.

    Quickly going back to the #protestMusic point I was making, I feel like these are the songs that help to separate the MC’s from the rappers or entertainers. I like Future. I just posted his new record “PIE” which is lit, but there needs to be a balance and Future doesn’t offer it. MC’s are more like modern day griots who rap about the real world and the conditions of the environment around them. Rappers like 2 Chainz, for example, has a college degree, he’s not an idiot, so when 2 Chainz or the typical Future rapper only makes the party or non-quality rap ish, it’s not a good look for them and clearly the black community and people. Those are rappers and simply entertainment. As an MC, and the first rapper to be inducted into Songwriters Hall of Fame, Jay Z filled this song “The Story O.J.” with points around race, anti-black stereotypes, gentrification, financial literacy and more.

    Wow. I never curse online, on social media or anything but I fucking love this. Even the animated video with the old school racist characters and images that white people used to depict black people back in the day, was such a brilliant move for this video. He took it way back to a place where older black people will see this and instantly know what it means and relate, whereas many younger viewers may not be as familiar but will hopefully understand after watching and listening to this. I need to listen to the rest of the album but damn this is dope. Spitting so much game but still with metaphors and rhymes, dope creative delivery with a mature sound. I think this just moved Jay Z to the top of the rap/ MC totem pole. I mentioned on Facebook how short Tupac and Biggie’s careers were and that they would have put out some amazing music, but considering how long Jay Z has been rapping he’s been able to develop his skills, learn, and ultimately have the chance to create more music and evolve over time. So I get it, it’s like comparing one basketball player who played in 5 seasons vs someone who played 20, it’s not fair. But regardless, only a few other major rappers have recently come out with legit quality rap and hip that is trying to fight against the man and the system, or as I’m saying #ProtestMusic such as recent songs from AZ, Ice Cube, Meek Mill, or even Snoop Dogg among a few others.

    So I really love how Sean Carter is also taking charge and leading the way for the black community and us young black men. I can’t wait to see Diddy, Dr. Dre, Drake, and other wealthy black rappers and individuals within the hip hop world, take charge and help be more of the positive role models that they’re capable of being because, at this moment, most big rappers are horrible role models. So after watching the video, read the lyrics down below and try to live by the key pointers that he’s giving you such as investing your money instead of wasting it and spending it on stupid irrelevant shit that won’t truly help you and your family in the long run. Start thinking about the future, not Future.
