You’re talking to me.

It’s morning and I just had
the most incredible dream last night.
It was like a well-written movie, with
banter so sharp it could cut through the screen,
containing a cast of colorful characters,
and a plot that ties up all nice and neat when
the hour and a half is up-
It had some post-post-modern hero
who found the courage to spill his heart,
in a tumble of tender, private truths,
to a freshly re-imagined grownup Disney princess.

It was the kind of dream you wish you could stay in forever.

You’re still talking while
I sip my tea and listen. I meant to tell you
my dream earlier,
but I didn’t know how to bring it up,
and I let the moment slip by, somehow.
How strange,

my tea has a gold ball in it.
It’s like a Golden Snitch,
warm, ornate and brilliant,
a little treasure right beneath
my nose, like it was waiting for me.
I should show you,
you’d like it,
I wonder if you’ve noticed it ye-

You’ve noticed.

I set it down.
I’m listening again.
You’re talking again.
It’s morning.

I wake up.

"Who you know go harder than this?"
My JAY Z collection. All of his physical releases, including acapella albums and collector editions, DVDs, and Decoded. Plus a few concert tees. Call me Stan, lol.
EDIT: Visualise the Magna Carta… Holy Grail deluxe edition in the pile too.

Today a rumor has surfaced that the one and only JAY Z will performing at a secret show in Brooklyn at noon on Saturday. The show will be held before the MTV VMAs are conducted at their new Barclays Center home. Sources say that the show will be held at the Bushwick Collective outdoor street gallery space, at 421 Troutman Street in BK. Along with Hov, two special guests are rumored to be on the bill as well.
THIS SHOW HAS BEEN CONFIRMED. The rumored guests are known to be BEYONCE and Justin Timberlake.
Good luck to those in BK who are going to try and attend the show tomorrow. Hov will be performing atop one of the Bushwick Collective Art Buildings. All of these JAY Z secret shows usually get shut down, so hopefully this one goes off without a hitch since it was planned as promotion for the MTV VMAs.

Jay-Z - Anything

Produced by Sam Sneed and P. Skam, Anything sampled Lionel Bart's I’ll Do Anything lyrics and musical composition from the musical Oliver!. In the song Jay-Z throws away his usual ghetto gangster lyrics, and instead brings us a song about the love he has for his family and best friend.

The song was originally supposed to featured be on 1999’s Vol. 3 … Life and Times of S. Carter, but was moved to Beanie Sigel’s 2000 debut album The Truth after the North American promotional copy of Vol. 3 was heavily bootlegged and Hov decided to shuffle the tracklist for the official release. 

Jay-Z admitted to friend Angie Martinez in a 2009 interview on the BET program Food for Thought that he hoped the song would be a success like Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem) due to their similarities, but was rather surprised and disappointed when it wasn’t.
