Hearing Jay-Z’s verse at the end of “Jail” during the first Donda listening event was one of the standout moments of this album’s entire rollout. Hearing it again, this time in person in Atlanta at the second event, was still a moment for me. Now, the novelty has worn off a little. By Hov’s standards, it isn’t his best verse. “Made in the image of God, that’s a selfie” is ridiculous, but in the context of the album overall, it works. Jay finds his rhythm on the latter half of the verse, and hearing “this might be the return of The Throne” will always hit different. Still, since we know he recorded it last-minue on the night of the first listening event, it’s not surprising that “Jail” isn’t one of Jay’s best verses (or the best on the album). —Jordan Rose
