On his new album Blueprint 3 Jay-Z has been receiving some “feedback” about his song “Empire State of Mind,” which features Alicia Keys on the hook. Many have been concerned about a particular line in the song that seems to take a knock at Jesus Christ. Here is the excerpt from verse 3.
Mommy took a bus trip, now she got her bust out
Everybody ride her just like a bus route
Hail Mary to the city, you’re a virgin
And Jesus can’t save you
Life begins when the church ends
Some have argued that Jay-Z is being taken out of context and that he wasn’t actually knocking Jesus or the church at all. Can anyone say beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jay-Z was knocking taking a shot at Jesus? No. BUT… Can what Jay-Z said be easily heard as saying “Jesus can’t save you?” Most certainly. In other words, though Jay-Z may not have intended to “diss Jesus,” he sure could’ve worded his message a little better.
