You know how it goes: a new album drops, and the first thing you want to do is get photo shoot fresh and use some of the hottest lines as your latest caption on Instagram. We're not doing that today. Jay Z's recently-released Tidal/Sprint exclusive 4:44 is a little too grown for simple IG work. You need to build your future to a number of these lines.
That's right, sit there on some "Hov is old and you're old, too, damnit," but in a few years, you'll be using tracks like "4:44" to help you get back with your significant other or get over your significant other. There's some game that is left out in the open on these 10 tracks. Hell, for all of the "Jay Z old af" jokes people crack online, he's truly the older MC you should be listening to, as he's got game for days weaved into these lines.
Don't believe me? Just watch. Grow old to these 4:44 lines that will change your whole life around.
