In more funny Blueprint 3 release week / Jay-Z news. Hov did an interview with XXL magazine where he explained why he isn’t shooting back at The Games attacks the last few months. Jay-Z tells XXL
“I mean, Game, I’m his f—ing idol,” Hov says in the October issue. “If you ask him and he’s being truthfully honest with you … it’s just based off his insecurities and, for the most part, pretension. That type of competition doesn’t do…… anything for me. It’s almost like someone trying to set you up, and everyone knows they’re trying to set you up … it’s just dumb. It’s not in the spirit of competition, because he’s not competition for me. He’s not. Not then, not ever — he’d have to improve considerably. Competition for me is Nas, Eminem. Like Jim Jones? That’s ridiculous to me. So how do I respond to that? I can’t win. If I win, then they’ll be like, ‘See. Now chill. You’re a f—in’ bully.‘ And if manages to throw a haymaker from the West Coast, then it’s like, ‘Oooooh.’ It’s not even fun.”
When you think hard on this Jigga is right, it makes no sense for him to shoot on The Game or Jim Jones. What’s even more funny is we all know what’s going to follow once Game and Jimmy gets hold of Jay-Z’s words. Jay-Z sure does know how to promote his album. Blueprint 3 officially releases this week.
