Jay-Z gives shout out to Steve Jobs in song from new album

“I finally got the chance to listen to the new album from Jay-Z titled ‘Kingdom Come,'” Brian Stucki reports for FreeMacBlog.

“As I was listening to the first track titled ‘The Prelude’ … I heard Jay-Z give a little shout-out to Steve Jobs and the iPod. The exact line was ‘you see hova wasnt digital yet, before steve jobs made the ipod,'” Stucki reports.

Full article, with MP3 snippet of the Jobs line, here.

Does this make up for Liz Phair’s “Xbox” reference in “Rock Me” or not?


  1. how long will it be before p diddy starts giving a shout out to gates and balmer for the zune? probably the same time i take off my turban and shave all my body hair. sorry zune tang, i still want to get down and dirty with you, check out the rusty trombone on urbandictionay, i think it would be a nice addition to our repetoire.

  2. Ron try to stay on topic.

    Here, let me help you out. If a big name pop star/record company exec promotes The Steve and the iPod on his new album, you should say something like:

    Gee I bet no one will give a shout out to Monkey Boy or the Zune

    Try to keep up. Loosen your helmet if it’s too tight.
