    Can you hear me now? Good! (Blueprint 2 baby!)
    The best of times, it was the worst of times (aoww)
    It's "The Gift & the Curse"

    [Chorus: Jay-Z]
    R.O.C. YEAH, number one click HERE
    If you represent US, throw them diamonds up YEAH
    Now let's be CLEAR, I ain't goin no-WHERE
    Now that you KNOW, holla at your boy
    HOV'.. (Hov', Hov', Hov')
    (Hov', Hov', Hov', Hov')

    [overlapping first Chorus]
    Yeah, Roc-A-Fella Records
    You know what diamond is
    We ain't goin nowhere, put your diamonds up

    Standin in my b-boy stance
    Free, Beans, Memphis where you at nigga?
    (Right here) Snatch Cam and it's a rap
    This here rap belong to us, nobody strong as us, it's a fact
    Hold up I'm just warmin up, gimme a second to get it back
    Young Chris, Neek what? Oschino and Sparks
    Next summer's yo' summer, tear this motherfucker up
    Young is eternal, my young'uns'll burn you
    "The Blueprint" birthed, nigga I earthed you, you can't be serious
    Young cause I'm thirty-two, dressed like I'm twenty-two
    Flow like a 18, do what I wanna do
    Goin on my 8th ring, got Phil Jackson's and
    flow is black magic, I'm at it again
    Rose Bowl with black karats, "Horse & Carriage" to spend
    like Mason Betha, chasin this cheddar, to the end
    of the road because the end I'm told is nearer than we know
    What can I say but live for today, HOV'!


    Yeah, "The Blueprint 2" homey, follow the moves
    You put on two tube socks, you couldn't walk in my shoes
    I was dealt a bad hand, fuck what else could I do
    but keep somethin up my sleeve that'll help me through
    But can you believe, everywhere I'm at, models come through
    Cat-fightin, cat-walkin, it happens often
    It's true how society don't want me to move
    into the penthouse building with spectacular views
    They're like uhh, "He's a menace he could never be a tenant"
    I'm like ooh, what's a young nigga to do?
    I bring the brothers to the building give a feeling that I don't
    give a fuck we just chillin watchin chandelier ceilings high as fuck
    Old lady, don't blow my high
    'specially if you don't know my life, don't make me bring
    Sharpton in it cause I'm dark-skinneded or
    dude with the 'fro and the Rainbow Coalition, I'ma
    victim of a single parent household, born in a mousehole
    Mousetrap, niggaz wanna know
    How so, how Jay get up out that, here, yeah
    I snatched purses I per-se-vered, yeah
    I had work, fiends purchased, it was clear
    I was out there sellin hope for despair, but stop there
    I swear, I only make good from my mouth to God's ears
    Had to get out the hood
    And I can't justify genocide
    But I was born in the city where the skinny niggaz die
    Born in the city where the skinny niggaz ride
    And as a skinny nigga I had beef with high size
