Well this is something I wasn’t expecting but the timing couldn’t be more perfect. I’m not familiar with The Black Kings but something made me open the e-mail due to the auspiciousness of today being Jay Z’s 44th birthday. Upon putting ears to this homage, the track captures and details Hov’s trailblazing career up until the inception of Roc Nation.
The concept would be too cheesy for J. Cole to pull off but for an act not connected to Hov, it’s definitely well thought out, lengthy but worth a listen for any real Jay Z fan. Check it out below.
