Niggas want my old shit, buy my old albums
Jay-Z’s debut album, Reasonable Doubt, was released in 1996, but went platinum in 2002 — six years later. Even though Jay-Z released a new album every year during that time, people still wanted his old shit and bought his old albums.
This could also be a continuation of the previous line, saying he’s progressing but if you want his old style, go buy his old albums.
