Check out Jay Z rehearsing his "Stream Of Consciousness" freestyle from this past weekend.
Over this past weekend, Jay Z put together two legendary shows at Terminal 5 in NYC as part of his “B-Sides” concert with TIDAL. Aside from the countless guest features in attendance and rare performances, Hov took a little time to treat the audience to a “stream of consciousness” freestyle, which had a few lowkey disses at Youtube/Spotify, and acknowlegded Freddie Gray and Mike Brown's recent deaths.
Looking to keep the promotion heavy on TIDAL, Hov decided to release this behind the scenes footage of himself rehearsing the freestyle today. Look for cameos from Beyonce, Vic Mensa, Jeezy, and Jay Electronica.
Watch the video above, or peep it here on TIDAL.
“I don’t need no middlemen to talk to my ni**as / I understand if you don’t understand I figure my ni**a / That’s where we differ / I take what’s mine you accept what they give you / I get you / I don’t take no checks / I take my respect / Pharrell even told me ‘Go with the best bet’ / Jimmy Iovine offered the safety net / Google came around with a crazy check / I feel like YouTube is the culp-a-rit"
