The machine at work and nothing more. The machine can make anyone appear to be successful. The Rain man can make all of your dreams come true.

Good day.

No matter what you got to give the man his props. For all those wack ass artists out there doing money shots and going to strip clubs throwing away thousands, just goes to show you the truth to this lyrics. You are just an ignorant ass n&&ga

What do they get out of making them look successful!! That makes no sense!! Why would they spend money and publicity on someone that isn't making them money!! Y'all mon sensical asses need to pick up a dicktionary!!

Felicia said...

Non sensical

And I forgot the ???'s

Lol u should pick up the dicKtionary u can't spell.
Manufacturing success for a celebrity will make people believe they must be so talented and that something great must be happening with an album, which would encourage them to check it out.
It makes perfect sense actually.
Also with jayz and beyonce's narcissistic personality disorder, they need the image of success and achievements badly and both have the symptomatic preoccupation with power, success, elite status, superiority etc.
Give a narcissistic the platform and they will be driven to put out a false image that elevates them.

I don't care for Jay-Z but I can't stand the mumble mouth rappers that push undereducated, limited thinking and ghetto culture. "Ghettos" are meant to isolate and facilitate easy extermination. Jay-Z made a lot of money for entities that are trying to make Black folks believe false narratives about themselves.

If the two evil factions are fighting each other and a little bit of knowledge can rise to the top of the fray, I'm here for it.

This man is only popular because he makes white guys feel hip and ugly, DBR, low self-esteem black men feel like kings.

^^^Lil Boosie, Future, all these corny cornballs are in their feelings because he hit them where it hurts. They realize that the record companies pushing them to stunt on IG were using them and they really do look like coons. Someone is using them against each other but some truth is coming out and that's great!

@Felicia

Because the machine NEEDS Jay Z to be successful. Do you know how much him and his wife owe Live Nation/Sony??? If they make Jay APPEAR successful, it will encourage the public to genuinely invest in him, thus making him ACTUALLY successful. This is done with ALL recording artists, FYI.

This is a good album and I don't ride the coat tails of any celebrity.

You're so clueless and naive. That's an old trick record labels have been pulling for decades - make the dumb masses believe a record is selling like hot cakes and well what do you know? they run and out and buy it or nowadays download it - the poor sheep can't feel like they're missing on out on the 'best rap album of the year' as it will inevitably be billed.
It's all hype but it works everytime on the retard masses.

I need to see verified receipts of Tidal's subscribers before I believe it went platinum off streams. Until then I will attribute this to yet another camel scam

@ Felicia you are not clueless or naive. Jay had to sell millions of records on his own accord to get to where he is today. Yes, the record companies may help him but they're not in the business of spending money on someone who isn't a proven powerhouse/ money maker.

It went platinum off of exclusive Tidal streams??? Lol. Ok!

CONGRATULATIONS JAY-Z KEEP THEM MAD WITH YOUR SUCCESS. THIS MAN HAS BEEN GOING PLATINUM SINCE BEFORE SOME OF YOU COULD WALK. WTF WOULD HE NEED TO FUDGE NUMBERS WHEN HE HAS A FAN BASE. IF ALL IT TOOK FOR AN ARTIST TO GO PLATINUM WAS A DROP OF A DIME. EVERYONE WOULD BE DOING IT INCLUDING YOUR FLOPPING FAVES.

BUT STAY FINDING A WAY TO MAKE SENSE OUT OF SOMETHING SO SIMPLE WHILE THE REST OF US ENJOY THIS GREAT ALBUM 4:44

FAKE NEWS and ALTERNATE FACTS.
@3:32 exactly.

Everyone acting like jay WANTS to still rap. HE HAS NO CHOICE and NEITHER DOES bey. THEY BOTH SIGNED LONG-TERM CONTRACTS.

All of the images and publicity is due to contractual obligations. They DO NOT have enough funds to buy themselves out of the contract. I remember when jay "came out of retirement", someone schooled me on what that really meant...he was never retired the record company had to create some buzz because research dictated no one was checkin for him.

this is nothing but history repeating itself. so please miss me with this BS.

and to be fair, unless you're an independent artist, the MO is EXACTLY THE SAME.

I expected nothing less. Too bad the haters to busy being haters to even grasp the concept of the album.

@ Sunni Daze Dream on....

Of all your favorite celebrities and moguls who are still working and thriving Beyonce and Jayz are the only ones you think that do not want to do their jobs? Stay mad!

LMAOOOO

May they continue to work and get major cash for years to come. Build that black generational wealth legends! It can't be built sitting on your arses.

Muaaaaah
