No one is more of an oddball than JayFirst,
So me and my homie Ty chilling at the crib while he conrow my hair
All that work on bp1 and all that ye could get was an uncredited feature? Doesnt sound like anyone was trying to hear that nigga rap.
That car crash gave kanye his angle to blow as a rapper. I remember hearing Through the wire with the weebay face on thinking "this nigga nearly died and went straight to booth with his jaw wired shut".
Thats what got people listening. Similar to 50 getting shot or Game waking up out his coma rapping. Once he got in the door his production and showmanship has brought him to where he is today.
I cant fault Jay for not backing Ye early, nigga was just an oddball.
