Jay-z Hot 97 Grammy Family (Freestyle)

Continuing with Throwback Thursday here at Superego, I give you Jay-z's most classic on air freestyle (next to the one with Big L).  Rising out of a sea of flex bombs, Jay-z unleashes a flood of bars over the classic Grammy Family beat.  I can't say the date of this freestyle for sure, but it is about the time that we all realized that Jay-z was much more than a rap star; he was becoming a mogul.  Check it out above, theres a lot of quotables in this one.
Everybody want to be the king til shots ring
You laying in the balcony with holes in your dream
Or you Malcolm X'd out getting distracted by screams
Everybody get your hands off my jeans!
