Jay-Z God Did Verse


JAY-Z Did Something Crazy Recorded His ‘God Did’ Verse

JAY-Z recorded his nearly four-minute verse on DJ Khaled‘s “GOD DID” in just one take, according to longtime engineer Young Guru.

Pure Amazement for Jay-Z’s “God Did” Verse

Jay delivered nothing short of a masterclass in MCing on the title track of Khaled new album which dropped on August 26th. Guru showcased his amazement of HOV recording his verse in one take. Despite their extended history of working together, Guru said he had never seen anything like it before.

“People think I’m still not amazed when he walk in and do these verses,” Guru said. “And this one was different because normally, we’ll sit down, we’ll do a song, three verses, two verses or whatever, and he’ll have a verse and then we’ll figure out what’s next.”

“No, he walked in and this was completely, he’s spitting the verse to me. One take. He’s literally asking me, ‘Guru, put the beat on.’ I’m like, ‘Khaled didn’t send me the beat, you didn’t send me the beat. Send me the beat.’ So then he sends me the joint and I started trying to loop it, and he was just like, ‘No, no, no, hit Khaled and get the whole instrumental,’ so he could spit the whole verse.”

Guru continued: “I didn’t know he had almost four minutes and how many bars or whatever ready, so I’m just in amazement of watching him do this again at 52 years old. It’s like, I never stop being amazed. That’s why I tweeted ’cause it’s just like, ‘Yo, I don’t really wanna have a conversation after this.’”

Jay addressed Meek Mill leaving Roc Nation, clearing up all suspicions of there being any issues between them.

“Me and Meek could never beef, I freed that n-gga from a whole bid, Hov did,” he raps on the song. “Next time we have a discussion who the G.O.A.T., you donkeys know this.”

Meek Mill responded to HOV saying that they’ll never beef on Twitter: “Never!!!!!!”
