Song: Moment of Clarity (2003)
Album: The Black Album
Thoughts: In keeping with the theme from yesterday today we are rocking with Hov. Moment of Clarity might be my favorite Jay -Z song because his bar game is wild and the content matter where in Hov has a discourse with himself about whether he should stay true to himself or go commercial. He explains this with rapping “They criticized me for it, yet they all yell “holler”
If skills sold, truth be told, I’d probably be lyrically Talib Kweli
Truthfully I wanna rhyme like Common Sense
But I did 5 mill’ – I ain’t been rhyming like Common since”. What’s your favorite Jay-Z song?
