Riff: Jay-Z – “Tom Ford”

Jul 8, 2013

Fuck hashtags and retweets, nigga/140 Characters in these streets, nigga/Pardon my laughing, y’all only flagging on beats nigga/Pardon my laughing, I happen to think you sweet

from Tom Ford lyrics by Jay-Z

So it’s happened. Jordan is no longer the ultimate adjective for excellence. It’s Tom Ford now, which is perfect for a guy like Jay-Z who carries a satellite phone with only Ford’s number in it. Together they talk about wild parties, annoying tweets, and how everything is fake; [LISTEN].
