Jay-z Says He Slightly ‘cheated’ With His One Take ‘god Did’ Verse

JAY-Z has acknowledged that he didn’t quite record his verse for DJ Khaled’s “GOD DID” in one take, saying he gave it some practice before entering the recording booth.

Hov’s longtime engineer Young Guru claimed earlier this week that the Marcy veteran spat his nearly four-minute line for DJ Khaled‘s new album in a single motion. Guru said he’d never seen anything like it before despite their extensive working history together.

Jigga confirmed that this wasn’t entirely true during a Twitter Spaces conversation on Thursday night (August 31) involving DJ Khaled, JAY-Z, Lenny S, and Rob Markman.

Guru played Dr. Frankenstein and put together a loop for the tune that contained the song’s original hook while Jay waited in the studio for Khaled to deliver him the instrumental in its entirety. Jay performed a few practice bars on this.

“So while we were waiting for you to send the beat, we were just playing the [loop] inside the control room; so I was going through it a couple of times,” JAY-Z told Khaled on Twitter. “I was just rapping over like, any part, it kept looping and drops was happening in the wrong place.”

“I think I sent it to you like that, right?” Khaled said to Jay, before addressing everyone else in the virtual room. “Hov rapped over the hook, breaks — ’cause Guru was waiting for me to send the instrumental,” he explained. “When you sent it back, I was like, ‘This man rapping over the hook.’”

So I cheated a couple of times before I got in the booth, I was playing it in the control room, so when I went in the booth it was pretty much a done thing, JAY-Z continued.
