Moment of Clarity: TJ Maxx Assists Jay-Z on Lyric From “3 Kings”
Posted by Newson 07/20/2012 at 2:54 PM
Jay-Z is pretty discerning with his guest appearances these days, so when he shows up on a new song, you can bet that every lyric in his verse(s) is gonna be pored over and analyzed like a coded radio transmission from the hip-hop mothership. And that’s not just devout hip-hop heads—even major businesses and corporations tend to take note of a new Jigga feature, lest it somehow have bearing on the stock market (you can never be too careful with these things).
This is likely how a somewhat innocuous lyric from Jay’s appearance on Rick Ross’ “3 Kings“—”Used to shop at TJ Maxx back in ’83 / I don’t even know if it was open then”—caught the attention of the referenced company’s Twitter account:
In 3 Kings, Jay-Z wasn’t sure when we opened. We’ve kept stylish men in designer labels for less since March 1977.

Well then. That’s all we need to know about that, isn’t it? Now, to see if Robin Williams has corrected him about his non-Golden-Globe-winning performance in Dead Poets Society.
