Jay-Z, Greatest Rapper Corporate Whore Alive

Jay-Z is releasing pages of a book dissecting his rhymes through a global scavenger hunt powered by Bing, or something like that. So late night we went to an event at the Delano South Beach hoping to get a reaction to our revelation earlier this month that the Miami Police Department used his image to portray gangbangers on its website.

You know how that goes: Jay-z shows up, speaks for literally less than a minute, takes no questions, and then disappears forever into a pool cabana blocked by the world's tallest bodyguard as we get sloshed on free cocktails.

So instead, we're just going to do one of these posts where we write captions under a bunch of photos.

One more thing on the swimming pool lyrics. There was a little footnote "7" after the lyric "Continental sitting on blades". Footnotes! On the bottom of a swimming pool! And to think that Jaz-O probably spent last night in his Brooklyn apartment, eating Froot Loops and watching old episodes of "Rap City" that he recorded on VHS.
