Jay-Z – Friend Or Foe

(1996, Roc-A-Fella/Priority Records)

Characters: Jay-Z, crew, rival crew
Setting: Motel parking lot
Plot: Jay-Z protects his turf from a rival drug gang
Excerpt: “You draw, better be picasso / Y’know the best / Cause if this is not so / Ah, god bless…”

Lesson: Respect the jux.

Considering the size of his catalogue and the depth of his talent, it is surprising that Jay hasn’t done more non-autobiographical storytelling a la “Meet the Parents.” Predictably, most of Hov’s storytelling revolves around hustling. And there’s no finer an example than Reasonable Doubt’s “Friend or Foe.” Jay describes a motel room stick up via a one sided conversation. Mr. Carter is in classic form here, delivering threats with an arrogance and casual menace that can’t be duplicated.
