Things have been extremely slow at my work lately. So as I complete mundane tasks I usually throw on my iPod or Youtube to make the long hours dissolve into what seems like mere minutes.
One video I stumbled upon while using said Youtube was the whole hour plus documentary about beef within Hip-Hop appropriately titled Beef.
Now I know a lot of you are thinking: Beef has been out for almost 10 years!?
This is true but for some reason this film had dodged my viewing for a long time. Anyway there were plenty of great interviews on the video including one with Jay-Z. For those of us who are under the age of 30 may have a different view of Jay. The image we may have of Hova is a business suit wearing, Beyonce marrying, Urkel glasses having type of fellow.
But the Jigga I saw in this interview was the one that wore Rocawear from head to toe. Everything from the doo rag to the sneakers. Of course I knew this Jay-Z existed even if it was over 10 years ago and there is nothing wrong with growing up and maturing, that is not my point.
