Jay Z - Stream Of Consciousness (Freestyle Video). Takes Shots At YouTube & Spotify

Jay Z And Beyoncé Spent 'Tens of thousands' Of Dollars Bailing Baltimore Protesters Out Of Jail

Over the weekend Jay Z performed a Tidal B-Sides Concert at Terminal 5 in New York City. The Roc Nation boss took shots at YouTube, Spotifyand Nike chairman Phil Knight for the criticism his streaming service Tidal has received.

Here's the official version released by Hov via Tidal.

“And I don’t need no middle man to talk to my n*ggas
I understand if you don’t understand, I figure I’m Jigga
That’s where we differ
I take what’s mine, you accept what they give ya, I get ya
I don’t take no checks, I take my respect
Pharrell even told me go with the safest bet
Jimmy Iovine offered a safety net
Google dangled around a crazy check
I feel like YouTube was the biggest cul-prit
Them n*ggas pay you a tenth of what you’re supposed to get
You n*ggas die for equal pay right?
You know what I’m worth? I ain’t ya slave right?
You know I ain’t shuckin’ and jivin’ and hi-fivin’
You know this ain’t back in the days, right?
Well I can’t tell the way they killed Freddie Gray, right?
Shot down Mike Brown, how they did Tray, right?
Let ’em continue choking n*ggas
We gonna turn style (turnstile), I ain’t ya token n*gga
You know I came in this game independent right?
Tidal, my own label, same difference
Oh, n*ggas is skeptical when it’s their own sh-t
You bought nine iPhones and Steve Jobs is rich
Phil Knight is worth millions, you still bought them kicks
Spotify is nine million, they ain’t say sh*t
Lucy you got some explainin’ to do
The only one they hatin’ on looks the same as you
That’s cool, I know they tryin’ to bamboozle you
Spendin’ millions on me to tryin’ to confuse you
I had to talk to myself, Hov you should be used to it
It’s politics as usual”

Epic: Jay Z Reunites With Beanie Sigel, Disses YouTube During Tidal B-Sides Concert {VIDEO} Dream hampton, a writer, award winning filmmaker, and organizer, who helped Jay Zwrite Decoded - tweeted that Jay and Beyonce donated loads of money to help bail Baltimore protesters out of jail.

The Decoded contributor also spoke openly about Jay Z's numerous private contributions to the resistance, indirectly confronting the constant flurry of detractors who repeatedly hurl claims of hypocrisy at Jay and Beyoncé surrounding their perceived silence on the issues surrounding Ferguson, Baltimore, and protests in general. In short, the Carters have — according to dream hampton — privately donated large amounts of money to ease the burden of posting bail for protestors, as well as other equally impactful donations that are simply "too much to list."

Jay Z brought the house down Saturday, May 16, during his Tidal B-Sides concert at Terminal 5 in New York City.

Hov performed many of his rare classics and fan favorites, but the highlight of the night was when Beanie Sigel surprised the crowd by coming out to perform "You, Me, Him and Her" with Jay and Memphis Bleek.

That was followed up by Freeway's "What We Do."

Hov also took shots at YouTube, Spotify and Nike chairman Phil Knight for the criticism his streaming service Tidal has received.

Jay Z's protege rapper Beanie Sigel fighting for his life after being shot in the stomach following altercation {VIDEO}

Beanie Sigel has finally been released from the hospital after spending a month there recovering from a gunshot wound suffered on December 5, outside of his Pleasantville, New Jersey home.

Reports of the incident are sketchy. Sigel was reportedly returning home after dropping his kids off at school when he observed a fight. At some point the rapper was shot in the stomach. The bullet exited his back.

The former Roc-A-Fella Records artist is not believed to have been the intended target. The shooter has not been caught, but several suspects are being looked at, including Sigel's sister-in-law.

Doctors were unable to save one of the State Property boss' lungs. Upon his release from the hospital he was taken to Bacharach Institute for Rehabilitation in Pomona, New Jersey. He'll spend the next three months there learning how to live with one lung, according to TMZ.

We're pulling for Beans, real name Dwight Grant, and wish him a speedy recovery.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Beanie Sigel is currently undergoing surgery at AtlanticCare Regional Medical Center after being shot Friday morning, December 5, in Pleasantville, New Jersey. His condition is said to be serious.

"All I can confirm at this time is that Mr. Dwight Grant was shot this morning after an altercation on Spruce Avenue," Pleasntville police Chief Jose Ruiz said, according to NJ.com.

The 40-year old suffered a gunshot wound to the stomach. The bullet exited out of his back.

The Philadelphia rapper is best known as a former artist on Jay Z's Roc-A-Fella Records and being the front man of the group State Property, along with Young Chris, Neef Buck, Omilio Sparks, Oschino Vasquez, Freeway and Peedi Crakk.

Police say a second man was injured in this morning's shooting, but refused medical attention. A suspect was taken into custody following a police chase, according to The Press of Atlantic City.

Sigel, real name Dwight Grant, was released to a Philadelphia area halfway house Aug. 14, after serving a two-year sentence in federal prison for tax evasion. He has been on home confinement since Sept. 25.

**UPDATE**

Beanie Sigel's family has asked the hospital where he's being treated not to release any information about his condition, but NBC Philadelphia has provided an update to the original story.

Beans was coming home after dropping his kids off at school when he witnessed a fight taking place near his home. It's unclear whether he attempted to break it up, however his attorney says it doesn't appear that the rapper was the intended target of the shooter.

The other man injured during the altercation has been identified as 22-year-old Umar Salahuddi. He was not shot and has not been uncooperative with detectives investigating the crime.

Police have not yet been able to speak with Beanie. He's now listed in critical condition.

"The whole thing is a tragedy," a cousin of Sigel's wife said. She refused to give her name. "It's just very sad and I just ask that everybody keep our family in prayer and that he pulls through."

  • The bullet went through Sigel's stomach and out his back, police said
  • Sigel's family said he had just taken his children to school and was an unintended target of the shooting at around 9.30am on Friday
  • The rapper has been in and out of courtrooms over the past decade, sometimes with Jay-Z and Beyonce looking on from the gallery  
  • In August, Sigel was moved from federal prison to a halfway house after serving a two-year tax-evasion sentence over an unpaid $700,000
  • In 2006, Sigel was shot multiple times in the arm in Philadelphia after an attempted robbery 

Rapper Beanie Sigel, a one-time protege of Jay Z, was shot in the stomach inside a home in New Jersey on Friday and being treated for a life-threatening injury.

The bullet went through Sigel's stomach and out his back, Pleasantville police Chief Jose Ruiz said on Friday.

Sigel, whose real name is Dwight Grant, was in surgery and listed in critical condition, according to his attorney Fortunato Perri Jr.

Perri said that Sigel's family told him that he had just taken his children to school and that Sigel was an unintended target of the shooting, around 9.30am on Friday.

'We're all hoping and praying that he pulls through,' Perri said.

Ruiz said that investigators were waiting to talk to Sigel, 40, and that a second man who was injured at the home refused medical treatment and has been uncooperative with police.

Sigel had three albums hit the top five on the Billboard album chart: 'The Truth' in 2000, 'The Reason' in 2001 and 'The B. Coming' in 2005. 

He also starred in the movie 'State Property' and its sequel. 

He has been in and out of courtrooms over the past decade, sometimes with Jay-Z and Beyonce looking on from the gallery.

In August, Sigel was moved from federal prison to a halfway house after serving a two-year tax-evasion sentence and then released to home confinement in September. 

Authorities said he failed to pay more than $700,000 in taxes.

In 2006, Sigel was shot multiple times in the arm in Philadelphia after an attempted robbery. 

He was able to drive himself to a hospital for treatment. He was found not guilty in an attempted murder trial in 2005.

He Does Not Need A Middle man Because He Is The Middle To Gain Your Trust To Continue Idol Worship. Put Up That Triangle Idol Worshipers. Let Me Guess You Love God. Jay Z Is Your doG. As You Notice Jay Z Does Not Consider Himself A Niggar But Your Unintelligent Arse Does. Your Are Niggars Right? That Is Where You All Differ. Google Dangled a Check That Wrapped Around His Neck It Called Cold Cash Al Might Dollar That Is Who He Will Sacrifice That The Respect. Jimmy Lovine Has His Own Satanic Church So That Is His Safety Net To Be In The Life As Long As "You Do What Thou Wilt."  You Tube Is The Biggest Culprit Because There Are Videos That Reveal His True Alliance For All To See And Recognize The Signs. Pharell Told Him To Take The Safest Bet Because he Also Walks The Boule (greek Def.) Line.

jay Is Telling You You Will Never Have Equal Rights Because You Do Not Know How To Fight For Yourselves And He Will Be part Of What You Dont Know. Who Cares How Much He Is Worth He Does and He Wants You To be Envious Of His MASH Mouth millions. 

He Has mentioned The Few Men Who Were Murdered By Police And Says They Should Continue. Yes, He Did Have An Independent Label Parlayed From His Drug Days But He Works For The  Man Now. Turning Turnstyle? That Means Going Around And Around Or Going In Circles. That What Is Saying In These lyrics Going Around And Round And Not Really Saying Anything But Doing The Same Thing.  We Are Buying These Iphones And making Corporations Richer While We Stay poorer And The Richer Stays Richer By Not Spending Any Money. We Are Used To being Confused That Why Things Will Remain The Same Politics as Usual.

 Who Is The Fool Now?
