The Bottom Line

Jay-Z ran circles around Kanye on "Diamonds (Remix)." Four years later, Kanye returns the favor.


  • An decent showing by Kanye
  • Impressive production


  • The host (Jay-Z) is overshadowed by his guests
  • Rihanna's tepid chorus


  • "Run This Town" is the 2nd single from Jay-Z's Blueprint III
  • Rumor has it that "Run This Song" was originally slated to appear on Rihanna's album.
  • Features Kanye West and Rihanna

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. But that's not saying much because Jay was running this race on one foot. In other words, Kanye didn’t win, Jay lost.
