    Wasn't Renegade supposed to be on Royce's album? I believe it sat cause of the beef between Royce and em at the time. The og version is fire. That's also why I hated that Nas line, it wasn't originally a jayz song that he gave em a feature on.

    Nah, if anything it makes Nas line more potent. Jay already knew what Em spit for however long he had the song for and still couldn’t come up with something better.

    l still don't feel like Em killed Jay on that song. Seems like people just run with that just because. Em's verse was great but what Jay was saying connects more with me.

    Mfers,
    Say that I'm foolish I only talk about jewels (bling bling)
    Do you fools listen to music or do you just skim through it?
    See I'm influenced by the ghetto you ruined
    That same dude you gave nothing, I made something doing
    What I do through and through and
    I give you the news, with a twist it's just his ghetto point-of-view
    The renegade, you been afraid
    I penetrate pop culture, bring 'em a lot closer to the block where they
    Pop toasters, and they live with they moms



    I had to hustle, my back to the wall, ashy knuckles
    Pockets filled with a lot of lint, not a cent
    Gotta vent, lot of innocent of lives lost on the project bench
    What you hollering? Gotta pay rent, bring dollars in
    By the bodega, iron under my coat, feeling braver
    Doo-rag wrapping my waves up, pockets full of hope
    Do not step to me, I'm awkward, I box leftier often
    My pops left me an orphan, my momma wasn't home
    Could not stress to me I wasn't grown, 'specially on nights
    I brought something home to quiet the stomach rumblings
    My demeanor, thirty years my senior
    My childhood didn't mean much, only raisin green up
    Raisin my fingers to critics, raisin my head to the sky
    Big I did it, multi before I die (*****)
    No lie, just know I chose my own fate
    I drove by the fork in the road and went straight

    Em's wordplay and content was unreal. We've heard verses like Jay's before, never really heard a verse like Em's. That **** was unique and overwhelming.

    Jay Z doesn't really say Em was better than him on ''Renegade'', but he did say that he didn't go as hard as Em, and then he explains why? etc.

    To both of these quotes... sometimes I think people blow it out of proportion that Em killed Jay on this song. Yes, Em did good, but to say oh he killed Jay, took his soul, made him look foolish etc. etc. is overboard.

    Now the part about Jay knowing what Em was going to spit and still couldn't come up with something better... bruhs in that point in time Em was a beast and hardly anyone was seeing dude like that.

    But in the end look how their careers ended up... Jay is considered in the Mt. Rushmore of Rap and Em is an afterthought to most.

    I thought Big L out did Jay far more on that freestyle than Em did.

    to add to @maximus meridius point

    Jay verse resonated more with people...Em from a technical standpoint went in, but Jay was talking more relatable...”do you fools listen to music or do you skim through it” holds true in this debate

    Idk not saying it’s not but why would he post it if it wasn’t real? He’s on the label and now apparently on the album...I would hope to think he’s smarter than that
