The smart money's on Hov, fuck what the dummies talk
People betting against Jay’s success (Hov is one of his many names) are wrong; they must be reading Rap Investment for Dummies or a similar publication
Remember that no one signed Jay in the beginning — he had to put Reasonable Doubt out on a label he helped create, Roc-A-Fella Records (Roc-A-Fella has since joined Def Jam)
Record execs: You shoulda signed Jay! Oh well..
Also, people place bets on boxers. This connects to the Mayweather reference before.
