Lyrics - Jay-Z on The Beatles, Elvis & Rolling Stones

Here's a new series of posts I'm going to do. I've been interested lately in lyrics that explicitly reference other bands (i.e. name them), so thought it'd be fun to dig a few out. Musicians referencing other musicians is something that's interested me for a long time, and I've done a little bit on it before in my Song Titles posts.

I'll kick off with Jay-z and a track from his recent album, Blueprint 3, called Reminder.

Ten number one albums in a row, who better than me?
Only The Beatles, nobody ahead of me.
I crush Elvis in his blue suede shoes,
Make the Rolling Stones seem sweet as Kool Aid too.

Song: Reminder
Artist: Jay-Z
Album: Blueprint 3

2009, Roc-A-Fella Records
