Song: The Story of O.J
Stands out: Classic hip hop beat, catchy lyrics
Hip hop king Jay-Z has just released “The Story of O.J.’, along with a music video, and it’s everything we had hoped for. Jay’s new track covers so many important topics ranging from financial responsibility to cultural appropriation. You’ve really got to watch the video and hear the lyrics to get the full impact and we suggest you do so. Separate from the educational and inspired lyrics, the instrumental is great too. Its old school hip-hop beat is oddly refreshing in today’s urban music scene where everything seems to have sped up and been auto tuned. Don’t get it twisted, we love all music – including autotuned – but there’s always room for the classic sound in everyone’s collection. Jay-Z has delivered what we hoped for and more with his comeback.
