"One Time For Ya MuthaFuckin Mind… " 

“Hip-hop has a savior in Jay-Z, Let me tell you why. As a business man… The fact that he’s doing what he’s doing is a [wake up] call for all of the Gods and Earths to wake up and understand—this generation is bigger than what we can even fathom. And he is one of the only ones out of the whole community that we grew up with from the Run DMC days, who’s taken his s*** seriously. Taken his s*** very seriously. That’s powerful. And you gotta respect that.” - Nas
As a fan of both I feel Nas’s words are Taboo, as if this should have never been said cause he Is Nas. Maybe he said it cause he is signed to Def Jam… IDK.
