Play-By-Play Commentary

Techniques That Freaks

I just spent about two and a half minutes parsing the lyrics of Jay Z's "Big Pimpin'" looking for something to quote here, but, people, this is a family show.

Masterful reply. Not much to say, except: Simple, bold, and to the point.

Okay, well, one tangent: You know how the newest Nas record was supposed to be a big hit, and Jay promised to back off and play record executive during the release and let his former public enemy rack points, and then he didn't?

Right. So Naz has one final round, and it's not too late. He could come out big and wow us all. After all, he's dating Kelis. Will the milk man shake it up? I am ready to be brought to the yard. And they're like: We shall see.
