Jay-Z mentor Jaz-O has linked with The Game for a new collaboration track called "Gangstas Ride."
Released online on Saturday (August 15), the track features both emcees fast-paced rhyming and making references to their longevity and credibility within the rap game.
"Worldwide originator and I'm back," Jaz raps. "Motherf*cker going home to war/Not a thug but I'll put you in a rug with a couple of slugs...Friends turn enemies...Can't get rid of me/I watched the cocaine bubble up/And keep the price double up/You got a problem with a Marcy n*gga while then go knuckle up/What you know about 1976 a young n*gga getting money -- When I first did it, Twista wasn't even in the business/Knew Big when he wasn't even in the business/Put the little n*gga Jay-Z in the business...Been a match since 'Hawaiin Sophie,' don't you ice grill with the phony frills/Still, act like you know me homie...Jaz-O, stupid motherf*cker not Shawn/Never been blast on a Tupac song/The originator..." ("Gangstas Ride")
Jaz-O previously made headlines after speaking on his aim to avoid violence despite his issues with Jay-Z as of late.
"I got a few joints here and there, taking shots at your boy, [Jay-Z]," Jaz explained in an interview. "But you know, that's hip-hop. I ain't taking it no where further than that, I ain't taking the guns out or none of that sh*t. I try to keep people from calling it a beef, it's not really a beef. I'm not really paying much attention to dude, first of all. Secondly, it's not a violent thing. So you know, I gotta make my move, I gotta extend my platform...The sh*t is kinda personal, but I keep it where it's supposed to be for the industry and the business...I'm not really hearing responses and like I said, I'm not being on the violent sh*t...I can only go in on facts, sh*t that's real. N*ggas ain't built a certain way but they make the world think that they are." (Vlad TV)
The rapper also recruited Jay's alleged former associate Gunna to help discredit the rap mogul.
"Bubble lip Shawn," Gunna said in a video last March. "He went from Bubble lip Shawn to Jigga to Jay-Z, d*mn you on Jaz d*ck...He was a worker, he wasn't the dude...All the stuff you hearing on records, it's not true...For all y'all that don't know, homie wasn't that big time, drug dealer, gangsta motherf*cker that he talk about on them records. Dude was getting smacked up, robbed out in the hood, he was getting robbed. One time, I was locked up, some comrades stripped him up. I got the news and told homie he had to give him his sh*t back...We the truth, just ask the streets." (Hip Hop Beef)
The Game, who has been taunting Jay over the summer, recently warned the rapper about dissing him in a July interview.
"My fans expect me to respond and I ain't lost a rap beef to date," Game said in an interview last week. "He just really needs to sit his old a** down somewhere and let the new n*ggas make money...He knows if he goes to war with me, it's gonna be never-ending. From Joe Budden to Memphis Bleek to Ras Kas to Yukmouth to G-Unit as a staff, record label and group, I'm a one-man army man. I will tear you down. They will stop wearing Roc-A-Wear clothing."
