On Outside the Lines today, Bob Ley found cause to recite a few bars from Jay-Z's DeShawn Stevenson dis track "Blow the Whistle," which Hova recorded during the hilarious LeBron & Jay-Z vs. DeShawn & Soulja Boy feud a few years back. There was little reason to expect that when James said that responding to Stevenson's initial "overrated" comment "would be like Jay-Z saying something bad about Soulja Boy," Jay-Z would take the time to record a dis track for a middling Wizards player; there was zero reason to expect that we would eventually end up with Bob Ley-Z reciting Jigga's bars. We've reached some kind of cultural crossroads here, and I really want to reverse as quickly as possible and never, ever look back.
But nonetheless, the pageant: Watch the entire video for a Big L remix. We do owe a nod to Ley-Z's ability to switch up his flow on the "king and the pawn" line. He's almost on beat.
