Live: Jay-Z Performs The Blueprint 3 Intro

The freestyle outburst by Jay-Z at his recent show at The Palms in Las Vegas is sure to be picked-apart by the online press vultures. He tore it down, firing off his chest at names like - Game, Jaz-O, Dame Dash, Jim Jones.

(Chicago concert) Press play -

Few sites have supposed lyrics transcribed, but these are the definitive words here:

"What are we talking about cuz i ain't got time
For what people be talking about all the time
Are we talking about fiction or are we talking about fact
You talking about fiction, hold up, pardon my back
I'm talking about life and all I hear is - Oh yeah he keeps talking about crack
I ain't talking about profit, I'm talking about pain
Talking about this film, talking about shame
I ain't talking about gossip, I ain't talking about Game
I ain't talking about Jimmy, I ain't talking about Dame
I'm talking about real shit, them people playin'
What is you talking about, I don't know what y'all saying
People keep talking about Hov take it back
I'm doing better than before, why would I do that?...
Ain't nothin' cool about wearing a strap
worrying your mums, burying your best cat
talking about revenge while you're carrying his casket
getting teary-eyed about to take it to the mattress
I'm talkin' about music, I ain't talkin' about rap
I'm talkin' about who's hot i ain't talkin' about bap
The conversation's changed why don't we yap about that
I don't run rap no more i run the map
A small part of the reason the President is black
I told him I got him when he hit me on the chat
I'm talkin' about progress, I ain't lookin' back
I'm trying to run track, 'try not to get lapped
People keep talking about Hov left em flat
trying to re-write history let's talk about facts
Dame made millions, even Jaz made some scraps
He could have made more but he ain't sign his contract!
In As far as street guys i mean we was all dealing crack
that's how the game goes I don't owe anybody jack!
grown man want me to sit him on my lap
But I don't have a beard and Santa Clause ain't black!"
