    I figured he just dropped the control verse to stay relevant but it helped in another way...

    They didn't count them, I asked.....They were bought by a single company as part of a deal jay has with them, so who knows he may have given them away

    dude Jay-z dropped it rather recently and his sales are huge, 300 k today is like 800 k in 2004, basicaly people downlaod shit for free.

    hiphop is maybe more alive in the mainstream then ever, check the billboard charts (google them) more rap then ever, Charlamange tha god saying it's a new golden era of hiphop

    there's like 10 huge rappers today, and more ones doing solid

    ain't nuttin do wit downloading - but everybodies sales went down, pop rock everybody. Chart position wise hiphop is doing great, but the same chart positions bring you less sales, 2003 =/= 2013

    in 2004 it wasn't common for almost everyone to have a smartphone or an mp3 player. plus people could just look up a song on youtube in 10 seconds. getting free music nowadays is easier than ever before.

    he was already relevant before he dropped it, don't see your point.

    yeah, he dropped it as a statement, it just happened to wake up everyone else in the game.
