Hip-hop diss tracks regularly make headlines, but in the summer ofit was a hip-hop apology track that jolted the music world into a gossip-driven frenzy that eclipsed any beef.

The latter is a sage reflection on how even the most successful of African-Americans can never truly escape their race — whether they want to admit or not. Immediately, No I. As the album developed, it was clear that Jay-Z intended to go not only outside of his own comfort zone, but also to places where his family might also feel uneasy. Perhaps unsurprisingly, that eye-widening line was first met with resistance from Gloria.
