Producer: Just Blaze
Album: The Blueprint
Label: Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam


Jay made it clear that he believed he was the top rapper in all six statistical categories (And his interviews are hotter!). But how was he going to prove it? On “Breathe Easy (Lyrical Exercise)” he flexed his muscles and did just that. Chock full of exercise, workout, and gym references, the Blueprint's (first) hidden track even features a name check of the original Tae Bo hoe, Billy Blanks.

Jay didn't stray far from topic, and revisited his ability to cleverly create a concept record: “I spring train in the winter/Round early December/Run suicide drills over and over/With the weight of the world on my shoulder/That's why they call me Hova.” Jay made the competition get in shape.
