Editors' Notes On the surface, JAY Z's raps might be all about the game, but he's never been shy about letting listeners see his vulnerable side. His catalog is full of confessions—relationship regrets, dealing with his mother, even expressing remorse about shooting his brother—all relayed in sincere tones over soulful production. Forget the bragging and boasting—this is how you make the song cry.
