On the track Nas raps:

Jay Elec doesn’t write it
Hov couldn’t write it, he vacationing
Jungle the only brother I take s**t from
Hassan give me lines, we talk all the time
So I guess if he inspired my song it ain’t mine
Let me make this clear, they fear the gifted
Some say Shakespeare never existed
Wow, now look at the amount of resistance
Attempts to chisel my face from the mountain you guessed it
B***h you guessed it
There, did I answer your question?
So now that’s out the way, let’s get back to my message

Hampton provided her own message yesterday. The co-writer of Jay Z’s Decoded book expressed her current feelings about rappers via Twitter.
