“We are, yeah I said it/we are…” Yeah, yeah yeah Shawn Carter, whatever you say. You can pretend that there is a “we” in Roc Nation all you want. Those who threw up the diamond sign during the earlier part of last decade know the truth. It was the perfect setup to building the empire, though.
As you continue to work your way up to the corporate ladder while maintaining a stronghold on the industry, recruit the gulliest yet dopest rappers to justify the thug. Can’t be mad @ it, unless you’re Peedi Peedi. Even Jigga had to distance himself for strangely named goon, in fear that he would make that thing go brrrrrrring while he was lampin’ with Beyoncé.
But when your benchwarmers can shoot lights out, you should utilize your team to the fullest. Here’s to better days and Mitchell & Ness throwback jerseys.
