This cut is cool (streets & Mixtapes). This song is for cool Jay Z fans (the Justin Timberlake combo was smart #WhatsUpChurbanRadio #LMAO).  Sometimes when you've been on top for so long, you're expected to hit a homerun everytime.  Jay is in this position.  We should just appreciate that this is a good song.  Here the stats

THE PERFORMANCE- 4($$$$) Jay & Justin make's this track work

MUSCLE- 3($$$) Its going to interesting to see what the streets do with this.  Dance or think, hmmmm........
