Streets Is Talking: Socially Conscious Jay-Z Rhymes
In responseto Nas' scathing "Ether," Hov says here that socially conscious charity work is more impactful than socially conscious raps.
I put dollars on mine, ask Columbine
When the Twin Towers dropped, I was the first in line
Donating proceeds off every ticket sold
When I was out on the road
That's how you judge Hov, no?
Ain't I supposed to be absorbed myself?
Every time there's a tragedy, I'm the first one to help
They call me this misogynist, but they don't call me the dude
To take his dollars to give gifts at the projects
