Even though there’s really only one true Southern artist on this joint, the beat and everyone’s flows definitely sound like they were inspired by rap music of the Dirty Dirty. Well, I guess some consider VA the South but that’s a different story. Anyway, Rico Beats laced Pusha and the guys with some trap music.

After talking to Cole about his recently released Jay-Z-collaboration, “Mr. Nice Watch,” we got into some convo about the 10th anniversary of The Blueprint (9/11). Here, Cole calls the album a classic and debates the album’s best and worst tracks (via VIBE).
“That album was a classic, there’s only one song that I ever skipped on that album religiously and that was (starts singing) ‘Jigga, jigga, that nigga jigga.’ I always skipped that,” Cole tells VIBE. “But everything else was my shit on that album, especially “Renegade.” I played the hell out of “Heart Of The City.”
Continued after the jump…
“I’ll probably say “Renegade” but everything else is pretty much tied. Like “Song Cry” is such a classic,” Cole’s says of his personal favorites from The Blueprint.
“Oh, it’s tough man, I mean Eminem of course got it but Jay had an incredible verse. People fail to realize, Jay had some of his best verses. That’s how good Eminem was that Jay had some of his best, ‘I had to hustle/ I had my back to the wall/ ashy knuckles/ pockets filled with a lot lint/ not a sin gotta vent…,” he was killing the whole thing.”
