Jay-Z ft. Tony Williams - History

Posted 7 years ago
Tags: Jay Z
Featuring:
Producer:
Kanye West
Album:
The Blueprint 3

Ever since Common said, “I Used to Love H.E.R.” back in ‘94, hip-hop has been rife with records using romantic relationships as symbolic of larger concerns (see: Twista‘s For One Night and Freeway‘s Baby Back (The Block)).  On his latest record, Jay-Z talks about victory as if it were a woman; in his pursuit, he must deal with the possibilities of defeat and short-lived successes.  In the end, however, Hova snatches it up and creates a child… its name is History.  Contributing to the song’s epic feel is none other than Kanye West, who utilizes some classic samples and G.O.O.D. Music artist Tony Williams.  Jazzed about Barack Obama’s election, the vibe of the record is simple: “victory is finally ours.”  History is set to be included on Jay-Z’s Def Jam finale, The Blueprint 3, which currently has no set release date.
