Hip-Hop Rumors: Jay Z Forgets His Lyrics

Jeez. I guess I like the old Jay a lot more than the new Jay, because I watched this video and I didn’t even notice the flub up. BUT, newer fans of Jigga were well aware that the music mogul missed some of the lyrics from “No Church In The Wild.” The Watch The Throne song co-starred Kanye and Frank Ocean.

Peep it:

    Ok, he forgot his lyrics

  • KLewis

    When you have hundreds of songs, thousands of lines, a hundred thousand words, you’re bound to forget lyrics. I’ve seen quite a few rappers forget some lyrics now and then. Hell, even Micheal Jackson forgot lyrics to Dirty Diana on stage. Should we create a new rumor every time someone has a typo on here?

    • At that level, you’re supposed to remember the lyrics to the few songs in the set…or be able to freestyle it.

      • Thomas Smith

        what are you talking if you made a thousand songs, and handle not just music, but sports and other ventures…you don’t think you’ll forget a line, i’ve been working computers since I was 17yrs old. and still doing it you don’t think you can forget things that you’ve done over a long period of time….Jay-z isn’t robot and last time I check every man forgets something one way or the other

      • just_some_bastard #ALCOHOLIC

        He is supposed to be a pro…..quit making excuses for him.

      • See my above comment:

        “Amateurs practice until they get it right, professionals practice until they can’t get it wrong.”

        Ya’ Heard?!?!??!!!

        His shows cost a lot of money, and he not performing all the songs he made. He’ll do between 8 and 15 songs. If I pay the money he want for a show, he better do his job and rap that shit right.

      • KLewis

        Jordan missed a free throw now and then. Every singer forgets lyrics, every actor forgets a line, musicians miss a note. If out of the whole 2 hour show, he forgot the lyrics to one song, then he still has a good average. I’ve been to a Jay concert twice, one of the best rap shows hands down (after Kanye’s Glow in the Dark),

      • justmathoughts

        thats ill

  • OSBKE3000

    <<<<< this guy still wonders how "facts" end up in the "rumors" section ….

  • Reblogged this on Opulent Living Off Top.

  • You Got Me Hott Out Here!!

    This is nothing new. He’s been a joke

    • PBM1986

      A joke? …..

  • The Unhealer

    The Straw That Broke The Camel’s Back.

  • EzE

    he is 40 + years old leave that elderly man be… have some respect for the old heads

  • brotha_man

    happened to Pac all the time

  • TimeWillTellu1

    With all the money he has made we are lucky he even has the energy to perform. He can just say fug it and never have to do music for nobody.

  • ImaFoolBoy

    At least he ATTEMPTS to rap all of his lyrics…rappers nowadays just get on stage and expect the crowd to perform they whole set for them while their song plays in the background lol

    • Matt Swan

      Or have the DJ playing the actual cd in the background and the “rapper” just raps over himself

  • junj03

    He forgot a LINE from church in the wild? OMG OMG OMG!
    Come on AHH. stop the BS.

    • Tony G.


  • Jay-Z of all people gets a free pass. O well big deal.

  • Madstacks520

    He forgets the song that won him a Grammy smh

  • Gotcha

    Well that’s a good thing

  • DreamBigLiveLarge

    Who gives a fucc?

  • Thabiso Simons

    that’s so lame!!!

  • killajing

    ill say again let a battle rapper do this shit and its booos forever and its considered a choke but since its jay welll give him a pass gtfoh cheering and shit

    • Tre C

      one is actual competition, Jay was performing at a concert. It’s a completely different subject. Now if Jay were battling and forgot, then they would’ve been boo’d

    • justmathoughts

      you just compared UFC to boxing

      • killajing

        you right bout that and i agree but ok wat if somebody else did that on a level that high i bet stories would be diff the battle rap comparison maybe was a lil much but u cant say people are not biased wen it comes to jay

      • justmathoughts

        i actually agree with you wholeheartedly ,it was more than just a line and he did his fans a disservice….just wanted to make sure we were on the same page here

    Here’s something I bet u assholes didn’t know…Jay-Z isn’t the first rapper to forget a lyric on stage..he wont be the last…if u don’t like him its a big deal..if ur a fan its whatever..keep it moving..

  • Christopher Tarver

    It’s no different than an NFL quarterback throwing an interception or a MLB batter being struck out. They are some of the best to do it and are professionals that make tons of money, but they are prone to make mistakes as well.

  • Pirate7X

    The cam phone age; pre- 1999 nobody would have cared. Anybody see Jay perform with Jermiane Dupri at the SoSo Def 20 year show? This 43 yr old megamillionaire who could retire 100 times demanded to rap over instrumentals, not vocal tracks, like a real pro underground emcee & rocked it. He should have done like Ice-T said in the Art of Rap doc film and went like “what? y’all sing!” when he slipped, ha.

    I give Jay about 5 passes in this era of wack-ass emcees and corny stage performers who can’t rock without vocal album tracks backing them. Not a major Hov fan but I know if I pay money he’s gonna give a show.

    Probably was thinking about his wife’s ass for a moment. That would make me forget my lyrics…

  • The Real Will Cannon

    Jay get’n alzheimer’s…He’s what Paul McCartney is to rock music…OLD& workin’…

  • Southcidal

    If anybody can get a pass, its the god MC. After all these years of high quality material, come on man. Get the man a break. But on the real Jigga look loaded as a m’fcker up there. Lol!

  • brotha_man

    what happened to the comment section on new news/rumors

  • killajing

    niggas kill me wit he dont gotta do this nomore bc he got so much money if you idiots knew a fraction of the type of bills celebrities keep up with you would understand why they continue to work cmon jay brought bey a island for 20 mill im sure the upkeep price of it is steep plus the slew of other shit they pay for nobody has endless money except for the google and facebook niggas lol
