Producer: J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League
Memorable Line: "I guess on the initial Maybach/I was way too official, they didn’t call Jay back."
And you thought we forgot about this? No way. How could we? Two years after the fact, Jay's lost verse from "Maybach Music II" found its way to the Internet and even got a few spins on NYC radio. Jay's verse sort of explained the Def Jam-approved artwork for the song, which strangely featured Birdman and Jigga, though neither were on the album version of the song. Hov sounded slightly ticked off for not being invited on the sequel, almost as if he was pissed that Ross showed Wayne and Kanye the secret handshake he thought they invented. Still, he assured it wasn't a diss to Ross, he just wanted to assert his Maybach dominance and remind everyone that he started the trend—even after Ross named his company after the car.
Bonus: Jay-Z "Maybach Music II (The Lost Verse)" (2010)
