Pretending to be hurt wouldn't work
So a smirk was all on my face
Like "damn, that man's face is just like my face"
While staring at his dad’s corpse, Jay has an “alas Poor Yorick” moment
Jay-Z talks about this line in Decoded:
“When I finally did see my father again and we stood face-to-face, it was like looking in a mirror. It made me wonder how someone could abandon a child who looked just like him.”
