    General CommentOK to get conversation started on this track, here we goooooo...

    "I'm so appalled, spalding ball"
    Ok maybe this is crazy but i think it's a reference to his life after the taylor swift incident. he was a CASTAWAY (yeah that's right bitches like the tom hanks movie) and he has nothing left (hence spalding ball) BEST LINE EVER

    I mean goddamn, one time let it be a bad bitch sweeping"

    "Five-star dishes, different exotic fishes"

    "I went from the favorite to the most-hated"
    What's Jay-Z talking about here? Anyone know???

    "And Hammer went broke so you know I'm more focused"
    I think this should be: "The handle went broke so you know I'm more focused"
    because it's fucking dumb to rhyme "Hammer" with "Hammer" (and this makes more sense)

    PUSHA T KILLED THIS TRACK, his entire verse is awesome but here is a highlight:
    "A half a mil in twenties's like a billion where I'm from"

    And these lines will always be overlooked:
    "I keep the city's best, never said she was the brightest
    So if you had her too, don't effect me in the slightest
    I never met a bitch that didn't need a little guidance
    So I dismiss her past until she disappoints Your Highness"

    By the way CYHI sucks on this track and RZA KILLED (even though he didn't rap, he helped w/ production)

    General CommentI think Jay is referring to himself actually as the villain (in some peoples eyes, such as beginners). Just in general how more and more people seem to take shots at his music these days when at one time he was the next big thing. I like his music and there's no denying his success, but there are plenty of critics out there. The underpaid or overrated line is almost admitting to selling out though, if he is infact referring to himself. Which would you rather be, catering to the underground scene or rich (not underpaid) and viewed as overrated? The Dark Knight line is him making himself the villain again, somewhat paranoid line about how eventually some of your original fans will turn against you.

    By the way, isn't it "I might buy the mall/ Just to show n***as how much more I have in store"?

    General CommentTo me this song is about how overwhelmed with shame you can be by becoming rich, successful, popular/hated/famous....i can relate to this song from personal experience growing up most of my life in the hood not having clothes food ect to basicly overnight dining in the fanciest places and driving the most expensive cars(long story) alot of people dont know this but theres alot of hate/racism/still going on in america and these rappers have worked very hard to get where they are right now in there lives yet they still feel appalled, disrespected because they still see they're families and people struggle back at home and at the same time cant enjoy a good night out somewhere at a nice party because people looking at them like 'what the hell are you doing here?!?"
    im going through this right now and it kinda makes alot of sense
    one of my favorite songs:)

    General CommentFor Jay Z...

    I went from the favorite to the most-hated
    But would you rather be underpaid or overrated?
    Moral victories is for the Minor League coaches
    And 'Ye already told you We Major you cockroaches!

    Song MeaningI don't think Jay's entire verse is directed towards Hammer. I think he is referring to LeBron James going from the favorite to the most hated NBA player by making the decision to leave 30 mill to play for the heat. He also talks about;
    "But would you rather be underpaid or overrated?"
    - LeBron taking less pay to possible win championships rather than being an ovverrated player with no rings.
    "Die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain"
    - The Big-3 are now the biggest villains in sports

    Let me know what y'all think!

    General Comment"Dark Knight feeling, die you be a hero
    Or live long enough to see yourself become a villain
    I went from the favorite to the most-hated"
    These lines are referring to people thinking he is illuminati. You gotta think back before all that shit got brought up everybody loved Hov but now a days you mention his name it's always tagged with "devil-worshipper" or "He sold sold his sould to the devil"
