Jay Fox embodies the American dream - a millionaire businessman "job creator" family man. Except perhaps something
Fox News picked the wrong fight, again, when Sean Hannity attacked Jay Z last month to meet with the governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, to press for reform of the state justice system following the death of Eric Garner. Hannity said that the old days of Jay as a crack dealer disqualified him to advise the Governor on such matters. It is the latest in a long series of attacks against the rapper from Brooklyn, and if the past is any indication, we can expect from Hov fire back sometime soon.
Jay Z has beef with various rappers, but it's your beef over 10 years with Fox News that has been long. The fight can be traced all the way back to 2003 when Bill O'Reilly invited Dash Dame, co-founder of Roc-a-Fella Records for Jay Z, then-Roc artist Cam'ron to defend against rap music the position of the host that is hurting the American blacks and black children in general. Jay Z applauded back later that year in the Black Album "Threat" O'Reilly calling out first and offered one of his first iterations of how to achieve financial success and cultural influence not protect Jay racism. Jay Z embodies the American dream held by Fox News, after escaping from his previous life as a hustler and become a millionaire businessman "job creator" and family man. But it is still black. In fact, in a US predicament familiar damned-if-you-do-damned-if-you-no, Hova suggested in "threat" is the same success as a black man makes him a target, foreshadowing the eventual treatment President Obama:
I do not care if C. Delores Tucker,
Or, Bill O'Reilly, only rilin 'me up.
Rehabilitated, man, I still feel hatred;
I am young, black and rich, so I want to strip me naked.
