Jay Z and Big L "7 Minute Freestyle"

Lyric: “Come on and ride the rhythm I produce like jizm/ Just like the Gods I start with knowledge and follow with wisdom/ For greater understanding I’m landing blows and knocking sense into those that oppose me./ Enticing when slicing through tracks/ You screaming, Jesus Christ he’s back/ And God knows he can rap”

Back in 1995, Jay Z stopped by The Stretch and Bobbito Show and kicked a few rhymes with the late Big L, which turned out to be one of best classic freestyle sessions of all time.  On the track commonly referred to as the "7-Minute Freestyle," Jay Z spits the Nation of Gods and Earths principal that knowledge, wisdom and understanding are the first of the 12 jewels. Jay says that the people are screaming "Jesus Christ he’s back" and is referring to himself as God and that God is now rapping.
