Who you gonna find doper than him, with no pen
Just draw off inspiration
Jay Z loves to brag that he doesn’t actually write his raps down: he goes into the studio, listens to the beat, and composes the rap in his head. Gee Roberson, who worked with Hova on The Black Album, was impressed by this skill:
I’ve always been amazed with Jay writing in his head. Like, what in the world’s going on there? Him hearing a track and mumbling, and those mumbles becoming verses that he could recite and remember as if he wrote them down on a piece of paper or a Blackberry or something. It was like watching magic. I’m just completely in awe of that. It’s an incredible gift.
Additionally, ‘draw’ is a term used to refer to marijuana, which plays into Jay being ‘doper’ than anyone out.
