                        "we know jayz now as jayz the billionaire" uh no, and how disrespectful could you be interviewing a rapper and talking about someone elses wealth to him? Are you into gossip like a female? Really curious how you got this interview and you can see it in jeezys face that he was holding back from getting up and slapping the fuck out your bitch ass. You dont talk to a person and tell them about their competition and how much better/richer their competition is than them.
