  • Lyrics
  • This Blueprint 3 track was helmed by and features Kanye West, who served as producer for a bulk of the tracks on the album. The original 2001 Blueprint album helped establish West as one of hip-hop's most celebrated producers. Jay-Z spoke glowingly about his protégé to Reuters. "Kanye is really the father to the next generation - he's from the school of Q-Tip, and now Drake and Kid Cudi are from the school of 'Ye.' And, when you look at Kanye, you have to look at Lil Wayne. I think they're like Kobe Bryant and LeBron James."
  • On this track Jay-Z and West take aim at detractors.
