always thought nas was the undisputed winner, lyrically, but if you think about it, jay-z naming his company after that guy > nas' entire career.

Dude dream of being an urban rockefeller (i.e. rockafella') back when he was broke and couldn't get a meeting with a single label. 15 years later he's the president's favorite rapper, along with millions deep in ventures (just read his business ventures on wiki, i never knew he was co-brand director for budweiser select). I know its obvious when brought to the light, but still... bumping reasonable doubt and the thought hit me.

Anyone actually go to the msg performance last night?

Rocafella was a legendary hustler in Jay-Z's old hood in the Marcy Projects in Brooklyn, and he died of AIDS around the time when it was a epidemic.

It was in a magazine.

Its been like a half a decade ago since I read that magazine. Either way Jay didn't name his label "Rockefeller" so it be foolish to a.ssume he took it from them and just decided to change the name. at me contributing to another Nas vs Jay-Z thread. My kids kids will be arguing to this s**t. Just like when old heads still argue about MJ and Magic because the game has become unwatchable to some extent.

Considering getting bent is another phrase for getting f**ked. dont see whats false there. Tho my only reason for showing that clip was to at least show u that there was a big person in Marcy named Rocafella that people looked up to.
