Seen It All: The Autobiography

July 1st, 2014

The singers sing about what it was like to grow up the way they did – making money by selling drugs to make ends meet, watching people they knew get shot and killed. Jay Z also sings about his current basketball dealings: "Now the Nets a stone throw from where I used to throw bricks / So it's only right I'm still tossing 'round Knicks."
