it's verses like this that make Jay-Z the greatest in my eyes.

*supposedly an excerpt of the intro for his Blueprint 3 dropping September 11th.

we talking bout real shit or we talking bout rhymes?
are ya talking bout millions or ya just talking bout mine?
what we talking bout? cause I ain't got time
for what people be talking bout all the time.
we talking bout fiction or we talking bout fact?
if we talking bout fiction, hold up, pardon my back.
I'm talking bout life.
and all I hear is "oh he keeps talking bout crack"
I ain't talking bout prophet, I'm talking bout pain
I'm talking bout despair, I'm talking bout shame
I ain't talking bout gossip, I ain't talking bout Game
I ain't talking bout Jimmy, I ain't talking bout Dame
I'm talking bout real shit, little people playing
what is you talking bout? I don't know what ya saying
people keep talking bout "Hov, take it back"
I'm doing better than before, why would I do that?
ain't nothing cool bout carrying a strap,
bout worrying your moms, bout burying your best cat
talking bout revenge while you carrying his casket
all teary eyed bout to take it to your mattress

let's talk about music I ain't talking bout rap
you talking bout who's hot, I ain't talking bout that
the converstion has changed, let's yap about that
I don't run rap no more, I run the map
a small part of the reason the president is black
I told him I got him and he hit me on the jack
talking bout progress - I ain't looking back
you know I run track, try not to get lapped
people keep talking bout "Hov left us flat"
trying to rewrite history, let's talk about facts
Dame made millions, even Jaz made some scraps
yeah he coulda made more but he ain't sign his contracts
as far as street guys I mean, we was dealing crack
that's how the game goes, I don't owe nobody jack
grown men, want me to sit him on my lap
but I don't have a beard and Santa Clause ain't black

-greatest for a reason
