You see now jigga he bigger than me , he got way much more money, he probably got more skills than I got. I refuse because at the time I realized how starstruck y’all was, you know am blown away too, I’m feeling the vibe that you know he’s coming because it’s on the strength of Hiplife but my whole idea was if Jay-Z comes on stage and introduce an OG who empowers Hiplife, we losing power”, He said.
