Ipod Update: Why I Love You by Jay Z & Kanye

Watch the Throne by Jay Z and Kanye West (Janye) is one of my favourite albums at the moment. It's one of the few albums that I can play from start to finish without skipping even one track. 'Why I Love You' is one of those tracks that I keep on repeat and I thought I would share it with you guys, because it makes for a great listen. The combination of poignant lyrics, captivating melody and Jay Z's candid declaration of love for those who have betrayed him makes this more than just your top 40 hip hop track.

Showed love to you niggas
You ripped out my heart and you stepped on it
I picked up the pieces, Before you swept on it
God damn this sh*t leaves a mess don’t it
Sh*t feelin’ like death don’t it
Charge it to the game, Whatever’s left on it
I spent about a minute, Maybe less on it
Fly pelican fly, Turn the jets on it
But first I shall digress on it
Wasn’t I a good king?
(Maybe too much of a good thing, huh?)
Didn’t I spoil you?, Me or the money, what you loyal to?
(Huh, I gave you my loyalty)
Made you Royalty and royalties
(Took care of these niggas lawyer fees)
And this is how ni**as rewardin me
