JayZ's death of autotune
is one of many auto tunes/
Spit out by an industry that
mocks Christ and glorifies fools/
Yet majority of his sales
comes from the so-called Christian/
Who think him and his wife's ego
are manna from heaven/


But hey, this post is not about my critique of JayZ & Beyonce, I've already been there numerous times. The new JayZ T-Shirt above just inspired me to start a discussion on one of the many "controversial" lines in his new CD - Blueprint 3. I want to know what his Christian 'fans' think, or just hear from some disicples.

So in his song entitled "Empire State of Mind", one of the lines states
"Jesus can’t save you, life starts when the church ends".

What do you guys think? Was he just trying to rhyme. Was he using symbolism? Is he an anti-Christ? Is he just being sarcastic? Of course, you saw my opinion at the beginning of this blog, but let me know if I'm being "too dramatic" or looking "too deep"... LEAVE A COMMENT! :)

The complete verse:
Lights is blinding,
girls need blinders
so they can step out of bounds quick,
the side lines is blind with casualties,
who sipping life casually, then gradually become worse,
don’t bite the apple Eve,
caught up in the in crowd,
now your in-style,
and in the winter gets cold en vogue with your skin out,
the city of sin is a pity on a whim,
good girls gone bad, the cities filled with them,
Mami took a bus trip and now she got her bust out,
everybody ride her, just like a bus route,
Hail Mary to the city your a Virgin,
and Jesus can’t save you, life starts when the church ends,

came here for school, graduated to the high life,
ball players, rap stars, addicted to the limelight,
MDMA got you feeling like a champion,
the city never sleeps better slip you a Ambien[Chorus]

In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
Theres nothing you can’t do,
Now you’re in New York,
these streets will make you feel brand new,
big lights will inspire you,
lets here it for New York, New York, New York
Welcome to the bright light..
