A very pungent odor is starting to develop around Jay-Z. His vibe is not the same as before, by many’s opinions. The same rapper that once told the world, cops will need a warrant to open his car trunk, is saying kids now need to give in to authority.
In an interview in January, Jay-Z sat with a panel of people including Robert Kraft and Meek Mill.

In this panel session, Jigga was the only one to talk about Police killing people and the potential reasons behind it.
