Jay-Z took the stage in Las Vegas over 4th of the July weekend, and caused a lot of chatter among those in attendance and fans on the internet, when he mentioned several former friends and enemies during a short freestyle.
He spit a brief freestyle during a performance at the Palms Resort and Casino on Friday (July 3), which is rumored to be the intro of his upcoming Blueprint 3 album, in which he mentions Jim Jones, The Game, Jaz-O and his former business partner Damon Dash, all by name.
“I ain’t talking about gossip / I ain’t talking about Game / I ain’t talking about Jimmy / I ain’t talking about Dame,” Jay spit. “Let’s talk about facts / Dame made millions, even Jaz made some scraps / He could’ve made more but he ain’t sign his contract.”
All four of the individuals mentioned have all had words for Hova at one time, and as usual, Jay had never really responded to them, until now. And it’s not even a response.
The short lines drew responses, via Twitter, from both Game and Jim Jones, both seemingly laughing it off.
Jim Jones wrote early Sunday morning: “Question: if someone says in the song, I’m not talkin bout Jimmy. Is that not talking bout Jimmy? lol, we r back in business people.”
The Game asked his followers what they thought, asking if they thought it was a diss. “Aight so, after about 10,000 responses.. The results read that he aint dissin me. & as bad as I want to respond to his old azz, he can slide.”
Lebron James, Rihanna, and several other celebs were in attendance during the concert.
