Guide Review - Jay-Z - "Run This Town" (Feat. Kanye West, Rihanna) (Roc Nation)
It looks like someone finally got tired of being bullied by “Big Brother.” Roc Nation dropped the ball on the song credit though; it was supposed to read ‘Kanye West Featuring Rihanna,’ because ‘Ye murdered Jay on his own track.
